Hydrolyzed collagen (petan)
Collagen has a permanent role in human body. It improves and prevents osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, and it also reduced wrinkles and prevents formation of new ones.
OSTEOPOROSIS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS
As people grow older, do the aging signs start appearing. Two of the major health problems are osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, leading to pain and disability.
Now, the already well known Hydrolyzed Collagen (Peptan) helps maintain bone and joint health, preventing osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
Cartilage consists of a single cells - chondrocytes embedded in the extracellular matrix made up of two major components: type II collagen which imparts tensile strength to the tissue and aggrecan, which provides the ability of cartilage to resist compressive force.
During osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, this state is impaired due to the presence of pro-inflammatory molecules that stimulate synthesis of degrading enzymes. These enzymes degrade aggrecan and collagen, resulting in the loss of cartilage and its function.
The intake of hydrolyzed collage (peptan), the degraded collagen is compensated and the joint cartilage is renewed.
When it comes to effects of hydrolyzed collagen, researchers have demonstrated that when Hydrolyzed Collagen metabolites are present in this matrix, osteoblasts, the cells responsible for bone formation are preferentially stimulated, instead of osteoclasts, the cells involved in bone resorption: this triggers bone formation.
The final effect of all this is prevention of osteoporosis and renewal of bone tissue.
It can be stated based on scientific facts that hydrolyzed collagen (peptan) helps in the following:
- Prevent osteoporosis
- Prevent loss of bone density
- Promote bone health
- Prevent osteoarthritis
- Prevent joint matrix degeneration
- Reduce joint pain
SKIN AND WRINKLES
Fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity are the main symptoms related to skin aging. Generally, this results from the accumulated skin exposure to the environment, as well as the natural reduction of cell regeneration which leads to loss of collagen.
Targeted skin care can dramatically improve the skin and reinstate it to its youthful, healthy looks. Maintaining the collagen level is the key to a beautiful and healthy skin. Glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxiproline are the main ingredients of collagen. Supplementing the skin with these constructive amino acids helps maintain the quantity of collagen at a healthy level, thus preventing skin aging.
More and more research show that the nutriocosmetics may contribute to having healthy skin. While the modern creams and cosmetic products may externally affect the skin, food supplements taken orally affect the skin internally, under the well know motto: “Beauty comes from the inside”.
All these leads to:
- improvement of the mechanical strength of skin
- improvement of skin elasticity
- skin lightening
- improvement of skin moisture level
- reduction of the number of furrow micro-relief
- prevention of new wrinkles formation.
