Advancing age, overweight, lifestyle, viral illnesses and physical injuries are the main prerequisites for joint problems. One of the most effective ways to prevent and treat joint and degenerative diseases is to take hydrolyzed collagen.
Collagen is the main protein in human connective tissue, making up ¼ of all proteins in the body and is a major component of cartilage (50%), tendons, ligaments, bones (23%), teeth, skin (74%). Collagen strengthens blood vessels. It is contained in crystalline form in the cornea (64%) and the lens of the eye.
As a major protein in the body's connective tissue structure, collagen plays a vital role in maintaining cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It ensures their proper functioning, which helps for better flexibility of movements. Collagen imbalance is the cause of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, joint tissue damage and arthritis. Mutations in the type 2 collagen gene can provoke cartilage diseases ranging from chondrodysplasia to early stages of osteoarthritis.
Hydrolyzed collagen has a beneficial effect on a number of diseases such as lupus, arthritis, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, joint pain, tendon instability, unstable muscle tone, poor metabolism, difficult detoxification of the body, loss of skin elasticity and others.
Hydrolyzed collagen type I supports the body by:
- supplies cartilage with all necessary substances;
- reduces pain, stiffness and inflammation in degenerative joint diseases;
- reduces the rate of degradation of bone tissue by inhibiting the maturation of osteoclasts;
- supports the synthesis of new cartilage;
- is rich in proteins containing the amino acids proline and hydroxyproline;
- slows down the process of osteoporosis.
Additional intake of collagen is needed by active sports people for prevention, women and men after the age of 40 and especially women in the menopausal period; people suffering from arthritis and osteoarthritis.
