What is Collagen?

Collagen is a key component of the basic structures of the human body and the connective tissue. It is an abundant protein of the body, accounting for about 30% of total body protein and 75% of the protein that makes up skin. As a result, collagen is the main constituent of our skin.

Collagen plays a leading role in all body functions since it is responsible for:

  • The outer body (skin and hair)
  • The flexibility & mobility of the body’s structural components (cartilages & joints)
  • The smooth functioning of internal organs
  • The maintenance of good form for blood vessels and bone density

Collagen’s role in the skin’s structure:

Common structural property of collagen is the presence of three polypeptide chains, that form a helix. A single collagen fiber comprises of multiple triple helices. There are several types of collagen in the human body. The most common are Types I, II & III, which are found in skin, tendons, joints, cartilages & blood vessels.

As we age, our organism tends to produce less collagen at a declining rate of about 1,5% per year from the age of 25 onwards. As a result, bones lose density, joints become more rigid, hair volume decreases, skin elasticity lessens and muscles weaken. The number and activity of skin cells (fibroblasts), that produce collagen, decreases. As fibroblasts become less active, the collagen matrix which provides skin firmness and structure, starts to break down. Skin then becomes dehydrated and thinner, plus, fine lines, wrinkles and deep furrows start to appear.

So, what can we do to replace collagen in our organism? Since sufficient quantity of Collagen cannot be provided through the consumption of different kind of food, therefore the intake of Collagen is essential.

What is Hydrolyzed Collagen?

Hydrolyzed collagen, which is the leading form of collagen, is produced through the process of enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen protein. The process of hydrolysis involves breaking down the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands using combinations of enzymes. This process doesn’t use heat, chemicals or acids, but rather collagen is dissolved in water

Clinical studies have shown that the percentage of bioavailability is more than 90%¹,². Oral administration of hydrolyzed collagen is absorbed within the first 12 hours from the intake.

Hydrolyzed collagen contains 20 amino acids, which together represent around 50% of the total amino acid content.

Hydrolyzed Collagen’s peptides contain three times higher amount of proline, glycine and hydroxyproline amino acids. These amino acids are essential for the synthesis of new collagen and they strengthen the stability of collagen’s structure in the body.

Amino acids Percentage (%)
Proline/Hydroxyproline 25%
Glycine 20%
Glutamic acid 11%
Alanine 8%
Arginine 8%
Other essential amino acids 16%
Other non-essential amino acids 12%

  • Magnesium and Vitamins B5, B2, B6 & B1
  • Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue through Magnesium and Vitamins B5, B2 & B6
  • Contributes to decrease joint rigidity and mobility pain(3)
  • Contributes to increase the articular cartilage thickness of joints(4)
  • Contributes to increase the cartilage mass(4)
  • Contributes to the normal function of bones through development and growth(11)
  • Assists in the improvement of Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis(10)(11)(12)(17)

Collagen Pro-active’s benefits in Beauty:

For Hair

Collagen Pro-active provides benefits for the hair as well. It is clinically proven that the hydrolyzed collagen in Collagen Pro-active enhances hair strength and appearance.

For Skin

Collagen Pro-Active increases the density of the fibers and fibroblasts, which are the principal cells of the skin and are responsible for the production of collagen. Collagen Pro-Active once absorbed by the small intestine is distributed from the arteries to the deepest layer of the skin, leading to fibroblast proliferation and increased collagen production. With daily use of Collagen Pro-Active, the skin becomes more hydrated.

  • Enhances skin beauty
  • Contributes to the maintenance of normal skin tonicity
  • Contributes to the maintenance of skin elasticity & hydration(6)
  • May help to fight against the visible signs of skin aging
  • Contribute to the stimulatory effect of the Collagen biosynthesis in the body tissue(13)
  • May function as a stimuli for fibroblasts to effect repair of damaged tissue(8)
  • Improves skin’s dryness(5)
  • Enhances hair strength and appearance from 5% to 45% (7)
