How Collagen is changing our modern beauty
Rich in essential amino acids - Many people without realizing it have a deficiency in the typical amino acids required for connective tissue.
This is one of the major reasons for disease of the support and ambulatory systems. Typical wear-and-tear symptoms such as osteoarthritis (joint wear) and osteoporosis (bone loss) are now major and very widespread diseases.
Deficiency of the amino acids glycine and proline e.g. can become apparent in brittle fingernails, glossless and split hairs as well as joint pain subsequent to sustained physical activity.
"The body reacts by increasing the amount of abrasion of cartilage. However, collagen can compensate for such nutritional deficiencies" explained Dr.Misser at a UK Health Forum held on Jan 16th, 2014 in Eberbach.
The natural foodstuff collagen differs from other protein products in that it contains ten-to-twenty times the concentration of the amino acids glycine and proline. These particular amino acids are important components of bone, tendons, ligaments and joints and provide them with their firmness and elasticity.
The amino acid content of collagen is about one third glycine and a further 24% proline and hydroproline; the remaining 46% comprise 17 amino acids. Collagen has a particular high content of acidic and basic amino acids. Of the acidic amino acids (glutamic acid and aspartic acid), about one third is present in the amino form as glutamine and aspargine. Cystein is completely absent; of the sulphur-containing amino acids, methionine is the only one present, in low proportion.
"Due to its special composition of amino acids, it acts as a sort of 'power nutrition' for joint cartilage", explained Dr.Misser, sports medical specialist in amino acids.
They contain no fat or carbohydrates, no purine or cholesterol and are in addition free of all preservatives. Collagen-UKcomplies fully with all bacteriological standards.
Collagen Health Benefits
Chronic-degenerative joint disease is widespread among the population and requires particular attention. High living standards, insufficient exercise, reduced physical work and inadequate nutrition contribute to decreasing the resistivity of connective tissue, which results in degenerative disease and increased suffering.
Osteoporosis is defined as a reduction of bone mass combined with a reduction of function. The loss occurs simultaneously with increased decomposition of bone collagen. Osteoporosis substantially reduces the quality of life of many patients due to the pain it causes. As primarily females are affected by osteoporosis, 30% of fractures that occur among 70% year old patients are the result of osteoporosis. The osteoporosis process principally affects the spongy bones; their structure becomes mechanically inadequate and results in fractures.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that the regular administration of collagen can help prevent these diseases occurring; in addition, symptoms that may already be present are relieved.
The latest studies have now clarified the exact way that collagen works in the human body.
