What is collagen?

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?

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. The hydrolysis process results in reducing the collagen proteins of about 300,000 Da into small peptides having an average molecular weight between 2000 and 5000 Da.

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%
Competitive Advantages of Hydrolyzed Collagen:

Because of its low molecular weight, hydrolyzed collagen presents some advantages when used compared to the natural / normal collagen:

  • Dissolves in cold water
  • Highly digestible (more than 90%¹,² bioavailability)
  • Easily absorbable and can be distributed throughout the human body.

Stimulation of collagen in the body has a positive impact on our wellness by revealing a youthful, vibrant, fresh and vital inner beauty!!!

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

  • 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)

Collagen Pro-active’s benefits in Sport:

For Sport

Collagen is an excellent form of protein as it contains 8 out of the 9 basic amino acids. Intense exercise destroys protein in the body making their replacement very important. Collagen Pro-Active also contains glycine and arginine that play an important role during exercise, providing energy to the body and thus improving athletic performance. In addition, hydrolyzed collagen contributes significantly to the rapid restoration of tissue, ligaments and cartilage, and muscle post injury.

  • Contributes to the normal muscle function through maintenance and growth through Collagen Protein Magnesium
  • Promotes much easier sport and recreational activity(3)
  • Reduces the risk of joint & cartilage injury and supports recovery time after physical activity(4)

How does Collagen Pro-Active work?

The enzymes in our stomach breaks the hydrolyzed collagen down into smaller peptides and free amino acids which are then easily absorbed in the small intestine before passing through the small intestine walls to reach the blood stream supplying the dermis & the body. Then, they activate the fibroblast cells to make new collagen.

Why is Collagen Pro-Active superior to an average anti-wrinkle cream?

Collagen Pro-active stimulates the cells responsible for the body’s own natural production of collagen. It works in the deeper layer of the skin (dermis) and all over the body, whereas creams are more localized in one area on the outer layer of the skin (epidermis).

Why is Collagen Pro-Active is only available in a drinkable form?

Aside from being easier to swallow, a liquid is readily absorbed as soon as it enters the stomach. Each daily dose of Collagen Pro-Active contains 10,000 mg of hydrolyzed collagen, which is at least 50 times more efficient and effective than a common collagen pill.

Collagen Pro-Active contributes to decrease joint rigidity and mobility pain(3) & to increase the articular cartilage thickness of joints(4).

Collagen Pro-Active has been used in conjunction with splinting and hand therapy to heal my dislocating thumb CMC joint and base of thumb Arthritis. I now have full functional use of my thumb without the need for a splint and without any pain. I have also noticed that my hair and nails are growing much faster. I am extremely satisfied with the results.

Lebogang Monaisa

I can’t stop raving!  Like most people, when I was a young adult I thought nothing could harm me, but then life happened.  For more than 30 years my shoulders and elbows have ached, all have had surgery performed on them, and although the surgery fixed part of the problem, cartilage wear and tear and tendon tears took their toll.  When I started to investigate Collagen Proactive, I discovered that it is registered by the FDA in the United States as a Cartilage regenerative.  Something no other Collagen has achieved.  I started taking Collagen Proactive in September, 2015, within two weeks I was pain free and now 6 months later I am still pain free, and my shoulders feel much easier to move.  What a brilliant product.  I tried the other Collagens but nothing worked like Proactive,  Thank you for bringing it into South Africa.  Everyone should be on it.

Brian

I bought this product for my wife and she has been very happy with it. She feels more energetic and can see a difference in her skin and nails.

Mario Finto

I am feeling great! I am a Runner and my knees don’t ache anymore, I can run longer and faster – thank you!! I will never stop this amazing product!

Angie

I have been using CP for the last year and love the product immensely ! I felt a difference in my energy levels and skin within the first 3 weeks of using it.
The condition of my skin and hair has improved drastically over the last year where people started to notice the difference.
I have gained lean muscle mass over the last few months as this product helps with muscle recovery, which increases the intensity level of my training sessions.
CP became part of my beauty and health regime and personally feel it’s more important to spend money on a product that works from the inside out than expensive external products.
