Our collagen is selectively derived from fish skin and scales that have been consumed by mankind for a long time. This product is hydrolyzed into lower molecular weight for maximum absorption and contains collagen peptides. Its amino acid composition includes 7.6% Glycine and 23% Proline and Hydroxyproline which are the main components of skin. Also, the 8 essential amino acids make up 14.5% of its total amino acid content. Collagen is the major protein found in connective tissues and skin (more than 75%) and plays an essential role in maintaining skin tone, suppleness and elasticity. Unfortunately after the age of 25 collagen synthesis reduces at a rate of 1.5% a year. By the age of 45 collagen levels may have fallen by as much as 30%. The results of this process are the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dry skin! Collagen is vital for the underlying structure of muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments and bones. It also improves hair and nails. COLLAGEN FOR JOINTS is free of carbohydrates, fat, purine, cholesterol and preservatives.
Daily dose is 8 capsules for best results. To maximize absorption and utilization take it on an empty stomach - DO NOT take it with other protein sources as this will decrease the benefits! Dosage can be increased if desired, there are no known side effects.
Allergen info: Made from fish skin and scales. Manufactured in a facility that processes milk, soy and egg proteins, and peanuts!
