Benefits of taking COLLAGEN

The vision of the Vital Proteins brand is to help people live a healthy lifestyle and to feel and look their best, using a minimally processed product of proven origin. Collagen is one of the vital elements of our body and represents almost 30% of the total protein composition of tissues. After water, this makes it one of the most abundant substances in the body. Collagen consists of three chains intertwined like a braid. Each chain consists of aminoxelin, predominantly glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, and collagen is therefore considered a special type of protein.

What are the benefits of taking collagen?

There are two basic reasons why a diet rich in collagen is important in the first place. First and foremost, natural collagen production in the body decreases with age, and studies show that this process begins around the age of 25 and that we lose about 1% of collagen every year. In second place are our eating habits, which have changed over the centuries in such a way that in ancient times, people used more bones, stock, offal, etc., to enrich their diet with complete sources of animal collagen. Nowadays, people use these parts of animal origin less and less in their daily diet or give them up completely, and many also turn exclusively to foods of plant origin. Both factors can contribute to the collagen deficit in the body, which manifests itself through a series of signs of aging, starting from tired, lackluster skin to poorer flexibility and joint mobility.

How does collagen work?

Dietary supplements based on collagen are effective in two ways: they are bioactive and supply the body with key amino acids. Collagen peptides act as carriers of messages to cells and trigger the synthesis of new collagen fibers in the tissue of the skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. In addition to their bioactive abilities, collagen peptides supply the body with specific amino acids, and by consuming them, we stimulate the body to restore tissue.
