Collagen is important for feeling and looking your best!
Collagen is the ‘glue’ that holds it all together. It gives skin it’s glow and elasticity. It is the foundation on which bones are built, and is important for mobility in joints.
Collagen is the main structural protein in our bodies and is responsible for the health and vitality of skin, hair, nails, bones, joints, even gut and heart, in fact the health of all our cells.
There are several types of collagen, the six major types I, II, III, IV, V and X have different functions. In general cell growth and renewal needs type IV and V. Types V and X are needed for reproductive health. Type II for cartilage, II, V and X for joint health. Type I and X for bones. Type I, III and X for skin.
Tendons need types I and V. Hair needs type X. The vascular system and the organs need types I, III, V and X and the immune system needs types II and V. Many of us are lacking collagen rich foods in the modern diet.
When collagen is ‘hydrolised’ it is broken down into small peptides in order to be easier digested and absorbed. This is the better form as non-hydrolised collagen will appear as long, braided strands of peptides or protein chains that trap impurities and are harder to digest.
Nature’s Plus Collagen Peptides is collagen from hydrolised superior sources containing all the major types from grassfed cattle, sustainably caught fish, cage free hens and eggshell membrane. It also contains collagen digesting enzymes and is very pleasant to taste.
This is the whole food nutrition that your body craves.
