Collagen is a major structural protein used in the formation of the body's connective tissues including, tendons, ligaments, muscles and cartilage, as well as skin, hair, and nails. Unfortunately as we age, from around 25 years, our bodies naturally produce less collagen. This reduction in collagen production may be associated in part to a number of conditions related to ageing.

Collagen is used as a catalyst in the metabolic process of protein synthesis. Collagen tablets may help the body's repair work, which occurs during the first few hours of sleep, as the presence of ingested collagen may help stimulate the body's own natural production of collagen.

Some of the areas in which collagen tablets may be of benefit include:

Improved CIrculation

Collagen tablets may help strengthen blood vessels and increase their elasticity, thus improving circulation throughout the body. This in turn helps the nutrient supply delivered throughout the body.

Improved Injury Healing

Collagen is needed to repair and rebuild connective tissue to encourage strong muscles, skin and joints. Collagen also strengthens the structure of bones, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. Collagen capsules can encourage muscle mass to regenerate and help athletes recover from sports-related injuries faster.

Relief From Joint Pain And Stiffness

Collagen Tablets have been shown to help reduce damage to joints and stimulate reductions in joint pain, tenderness and swelling. A Harvard Medical School study on the effects of orally administered collagen for reducing inflammation and relieving pain (Dr C Searling, Fresco CA.) proved conclusively that almost 90% of those taking part had remarkable results. The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases noted that amongst the numerous benefits of collagen tablets was the relief from joint pain and stiffness.

Cellulite And Body Fat Reduction

When fatty tissue pushes upward through the skins layers into the upper layer of skin the result is a dimpled appearance known as cellulite. As fat is the energy source for the body's renewal and repair, and collagen tablets may stimulate your body's own collagen production and repair work, the overall effect may be an increase in fat burn while helping rebuild and repair the fibers that cause cellulite to appear.

Wrinkle Reduction

As we age collagen depletion in our skin shows with an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is the bodys most abundant natural protein and can help to rebuild the connective tissues in our skin making it firmer, and more supple, thus helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Regular users of quality Collagen Tablets have reported improvements in skin condition and complexion. A reduction in sun exposure is also a major factor in slowing the ageing of our skin, due to the damage it causes to the collagen in our skin.
