Supplement Tree Collagen Capsules are a natural food supplement containing an unparalleled blend of Type 1 & 2 pure hydrolysed marine collagen, made in the UK using only the finest quality premium grade Collagen. Hydrolysed marine collagen is the form which has been used more extensively in research to show the health support effects of collagen on skin, bone and tissue.
Collagen is a natural skeletal protein and is one of the body’s most abundant components, accounting for nearly 80% of the body’s skin, muscles and connective tissue. Depletion of collagen in the skin is the main reason for the formation of lines and wrinkles.
It is thought that from the age of 25, your body loses collagen at a rate of 1.5% per annum, so by the age of 35, your body will have lost 15% and by 45, 30%. This is when you really start to notice a change in your skin’s elasticity and texture. Proper collagen balance in the body is therefore highly desirable, and crucial, if your looks and facial structure are to be maintained.
A 2012 study by Guillerminet F et al indicates that supplementation with hydrolysed collagen can reduce bone loss whilst supporting healthy bone mineral density.
Collagen Type 1
Collagen Type 1 is found throughout the body except in cartilaginous tissues, making it the most abundant form collagen of the human body. As Type 1 collagen is responsible for healthy skin and bones it is by far the most abundant type of collagen in the body – making up over 90%. Typically type 1 collagen is used to support healthy, youthful skin.
Collagen Type 2
Type 2 collagen is the main component of cartilage. This type of collagen is important in helping to maintain healthy, pain free joints.
Why Hydrolysed Marine Collagen?
The bioavailability of a collagen supplement, or the percentage of the substance that is actually absorbed into your body when ingested, is critical to the effectiveness of the supplement. Bioavailability largely determines the efficacy of any nutrient you ingest.
The problem with collagen molecules is that they are huge, so unless they’ve been hydrolysed, they are simply too big to be absorbed when ingested, and thus never reach the dermis, which is the underlying layer of the skin where collagen resides. Supplement Tree Hydrolysed collagen absorbs quickly into the body and is allowed to make it’s away to the areas it is need most.
