What is Collagen:
Collagen is the most abundant protein present in your body accounting for about a third of its protein composition that provides structure to much of your body. It is one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts as well, including blood vessels, corneas (white part of the eye) and teeth. You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
Peptan® Bovine Bio-Active Collagen Peptides is collagen that has been broken down into more easily dis-solvable amino acids. There is evidence that collagen supplementation can support skin, nails, joint and muscle health. Our AnnBer™ Rejuvenating Peptan® Bovine Bio-Active Collagen Peptides consist of Peptan® collagen type I and III. These have already broken the large protein down into smaller peptides, which are more easily absorbed in the body.
What does Collagen do in your body?
Different collagen types, different roles. In our body there are many different forms of collagen (about 16 types) and it’s found throughout the body, providing structure and support. 80% to 90% are either type I, II or III collagen. The fibril structure of each type is the same: three long chains of amino acids in a compact triple helix structure but at molecular level, there are important differences.
The four main types are type I, II, III and IV. Our AnnBer™ Rejuvenating Peptan® Bovine Bio-Active Collagen Peptides Shake consist of the two most important collagen peptides being I and III.
What does Type I Collagen do: strong skin, tendons & ligaments
Type I collagen forms the longest triple helices. This makes the structure of type I collagen extremely suitable to form strong fibre networks, that can be stretched without breaking. Those elastic structures provide support and flexibility to our body. Type I collagen is found throughout the human body: it makes up more than 90% of organic bone mass, as well as comprising a major part of our skin, tendons and ligaments
What does Type III Collagen do: skin recovery & elasticity.
Type III collagen is often found with type I. For instance, when our skin recovers from damage, type III collagen appears as scar tissue. It can also be found in our blood vessel walls, playing a key role in supporting elasticity
Your body does contain collagen, let’s have a look how it is distributed in our bodies.
Different cells in our body are responsible for the production of collagen. The cells use specific amino acids as building blocks for the long chains that are wound together to the large collagen triple helix. Several helices are then organized into the strong fibres that provide structural tissue support, flexibility and the ability to withstand forces.
- Our Skin: Collagen constitutes 70% of the skin’s dry mass content. A key component of the skin’s structure, collagen fibres provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture.
- Tendons: Tendons are strong fibrous connective tissues that connect muscles to bones. During muscle construction the tendon’s role is to transmit forces and withstand tension. Tendons contain 85% collagen type I and proteoglycans.
- Joint Cartilage: Joint cartilage is made up of cellular building blocks (chondrocytes), which produce an extracellular matrix, consisting of collagen and proteoglycans (mainly aggrecan). Collagen fibres make up 70 & of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength, while proteoglycans serve as lubricant to the joint.
- Bones: Representing around 90% of organic bone mass, collagen provides the structural framework on which calcium and other minerals are anchored. Collagen fibres also provide bone flexibility.
When do we start losing collagen?
In our adult years, our bodies begin to produce less collagen. This process begins when we are around the age of 30 and accelerates in our 40s – leading to the inevitable visual and noticeable signs of aging. Collagen loss is a natural process, but other factors such as exposure to UV, pollution, and lifestyle choices can lead to early or more intense signs of aging.
How does collagen loss affect our bodies?
Because collagen is so important, losing it impacts many aspects of our bodies, let’s have a look how it impacts different parts of our bodies.
- Skin: Collagen provides firmness and structure to our skin. As collagen breakdown dominates over production with age, our skin becomes dehydrated and thinner, and signs of aging start to appear.
- Bones: As collagen levels and the content of minerals decrease, our bones get weaker. Gradually, this causes them to become more fragile and breakable.
- Joints: Aging wears and tears on the joint cartilage, reducing their well-functioning. This results in joint discomfort, making it harder for us to stay active as we age.
- Muscles: The loss of collagen by aging means a gradually less of it in the connective tissue that bundles muscle fibres into a strong and functioning muscle. Aging is linked to decreased muscle strength and function, which affects our balance, gait, and overall mobility.
Things That Damage Collagen
There are ways you can help your body preserve and protect collagen by avoiding the following collagen-destroying behaviours.
• Sugar and refined carbs: Sugar interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself. Minimize your consumption of added sugar and refined carbs.
• Too much sunshine: Ultraviolet radiation can reduce collagen production. Avoid excessive sun exposure.
• Smoking: Smoking reduces collagen production. This can impair wound healing and lead to wrinkles.
Some autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, can also damage collagen.
Benefits of a Collagen Supplement
Our AnnBer™ Rejuvenating Peptan® Bovine Bio-Active Collagen Peptides have already broken the large protein down into smaller peptides (Peptan), which are more easily absorbed in the body.
According to studies, supplemental collagen may help improve skin texture and muscle mass and reduce osteoarthritis pain.
There aren’t many studies on collagen supplements, but those that exist show promise for benefits in the following areas:
- Muscle mass: A 2015 study in elderly men showed that a combination of collagen peptide supplements and strength training increased muscle mass and strength more than a placebo. (Placebo means a substance that has no therapeutic effect, used as a control in testing new drugs)
• Arthritis: Another study gave supplements to people suffering from osteoarthritis. They experienced a significant decline in pain over the 70-day study, compared to those who took a placebo.
• Skin elasticity: Women who took a supplement showed improvements in skin elasticity in a 2014 study. Collagen is also used in topical treatments to improve the appearance of skin by minimizing lines and wrinkles.
Some alternative medicine practitioners also advocate using collagen supplements to treat leaky gut syndrome.
How to Supplement
When considering supplements, you should look for a high-quality source.
Our AnnBer™ Rejuvenating Peptan® Bovine Bio-Active Collagen Peptides comes in a powder for that can be easily mixed with water, milk or smoothies. It has a strawberry & lime flavour which is very pleasant.
Interesting Fact all collagen starts off as procollagen.
Your body makes procollagen by combining two amino acids: glycine and proline. This process uses vitamin C to do so and this is the main reason Our AnnBer Rejuvenating Collagen has added ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) build into the (product) formulation. With adequate vitamin C supplement your body can produce more collagen and rejuvenate the body from within.
