Collagen consists of water-soluble peptides which are rich sources of the amino acids glycine, L-proline and L-hydroxyproline.
Pure hydrolyzed Collagen supplements help to reduce the visible signs of ageing as well as boosting skin health. Clinical studies suggest that collagen may also help the symptoms of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, it’s also known to help in the recovery from exercise and sports-related injuries.
PureLogicol collagen capsules contain pure hydrolysed collagen peptides. When the collagen protein is ingested, the metabolic process of digestion breaks it down into collagen peptides / amino-acids. These help stimulate fibroblasts in the skin which help produce new collagen. It makes sense that ingesting collagen provides the essential amino acid building blocks for the production of new collagen which helps support the skin matrix.
Collagen contains the following amino acids: Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline, Glutamic Acid, Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Lysine, Leucine, Serine, Valine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Isoleucine, Hydroxylysine, Histidine, Methionine and Tyrosine.
