Age, obesity, lifestyle, viral diseases and suffered physical injuries are essential prerequisites for the emergence of joint problems. One of the most effective ways of preventing and treating degenerative diseases of joints and is the intake of hydrolyzed collagen.
Collagen is the main protein in connective tissue of humans, accounting for nearly 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 contained in crystalline form in the cornea (64%) and lens of the eye.
As a major protein in the structure of the connective tissue of the body, collagen plays a vital role in the maintenance of cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It ensure their proper functioning, which helps to better flexibility of movement. Violating the balance of collagen is the cause of diseases such as rheumatism, damage to articular tissues and arthritis. Mutations of the gene for collagen type 2 may provoke disorders of cartilage ranging from chondrodysplasia to early stages of osteoarthritis.
Hydrolyzed collagen has a beneficial effect on many diseases such as lupus, arthritis, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, joint pain, instability of ligaments, unstable muscle tone, poor metabolism, difficulty detoxification of the body, loss of skin elasticity and others.
Hydrolyzed collagen type I support the body such as:
- Supplying the cartilage with all the necessary materials;
- Reduces pain, stiffness and inflammation in degenerative joint disease;
- Reducing the rate of degradation of bone tissue, by inhibiting the maturation of osteoclasts;
- Assist the synthesis of new cartilage;
- Rich in proteins containing the amino acids proline and hydroxyproline;
- Slows down the process of osteoporosis.
Additional intake of collagen need active people with prevention, women and men after the age of 40 years and especially women in menopause; People suffering from arthritis and arthrosis.
