The word collagen comes from the Greek word kolla which means glue. Collagen is the main structural protein of many connective tissues in all humans and animals and it makes up 25% – 35% of all protein content in the body. Collagen exists as elongated fibers found in the fibrous tissue of the skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, inter vertebral discs, dentin in teeth, and cornea of the eye. It makes up roughly 2% of all muscle tissue. Collagen is naturally found in the human body and is comprised of 20 amino acids. These amino acids are clycine, proline, alamine, hyroxyproline, glutamic acid, arginime, aspartic acid, serine, lysine, leucine, valine, threonine, phenylalanine, noleucine, hydroxylysine, methomine, histadine, tryosine, cysteine, and tryptophane.
There are 28 different types of collagen of which only 5 are primary and each type has primary separate functions. The following are the five primary types of collagen:
The most common types of collagen drawing interest pertaining to health and beauty are type 1 and type 3 which promote younger looking skin and make hair and nails stronger. Collagen type 2 helps promote healthy joints and cartilage. It also helps reduce joint pain and increase joint flexibility.
It is very important to know which type of collagen you are using to determine the effects you wish to achieve. It would not be recommended to use just any collagen product if the type of collagen is not specific for the results you wish to accomplish.
Pure Collagen with VERISOL® is type 1 and type 3. Collagen types 1 & 3 gives tensile strength to the skin, ligaments, and tendons and is responsible for skin strength, fullness, and elasticity.
After the age of 25, the natural aging process begins and the body produces increasingly less collagen. As time goes on, the amount of collagen is decreased in the body and the skin begins to show signs of aging; typically in the form of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crows feet), mouth (smile lines), and forehead. It is commonly accepted that the internal ingestion of type 1 & 3 hydrolyzed collagen will improve the condition of skin, fingernails, and joints. Without supplementation through oral collagen ingestion, a deficiency occurs which can cause dry skin, wrinkles, and arthritis. Collagen is often used in the medical profession for cosmetic surgery, bone grafting, tissue regeneration, reconstructive surgery, and wound care management.
This picture shows the effects of aging skin and increasing wrinkles as the amount of the supporting structure of collagen is decreased.
Before You Purchase Any Product
Before you purchase collagen from any supplier, it is important to answer these 3 questions for yourself.
First, we can definitely say that we believe that the best form of collagen to buy is in the powdered form. We could easily sell collagen in the pill, tablet or gel form. This would be easier for us to prepare and market. However, in our opinion the easiest is not always the best. We can definitely say that the powder form is the best because of its very quick absorption and utilization in the body. The powdered form of collagen is very quickly and easily absorbed through the small intestines and is quickly and easily directed to the desired body structures in the desired amounts all at one time of day. Thus you receive the maximum desired and effective dose which is best for you and which is closest to the recommended dose that was used in the research experiments. In addition, some consumers of collagen have reported some allergic reactions as a result of taking collagen in the pill, tablet or gel form but no such reactions with the powdered form. This is probably due to the significant increased time of absorption with the tablets, pills and gels. The body has more exposure time until the product is fully absorbed and deposited in the desired areas. These are some reasons why we at Pure Collagen.US have chosen only to offer the powdered form for administration because, in our opinion, it is the BEST for YOU!
You should know how much of pure collagen you are taking per dose so that it can most closely approximate the dosage used in research studies. With our powdered form you know exactly how much pure collagen you are receiving because you know that there are absolutely no fillers only absolutely PURE COLLAGEN. The recommended dose that we recommend has been documented in research. Our recommended doses are reliable and accurate. If you follow our dosage recommendations you will know exactly what you are getting. However, the tablet and gel forms almost always contains a significant amounts of fillers. For example, you may see on the label that there is 1000 mg of content inside each pill, tablet or gel – but how much of the content is pure collagen and how much are fillers? Most typically out of a 1000 mg gel, you may receive only 100 mg of pure collagen product. Always check the label to see what you are buying and to make sure that you are receiving the recommended dose suggested by the research and not the manufacturer of the product. So look closely at the label and read between the lines. It is important to be an informed buyer if you want to expect similar results reported by research studies. Again, this is another reason why we, at Pure Collagen.US, have decided that the powdered form is the best way to provide a product which will have the best opportunity to receive satisfying results which most closely approximates the quality research results which you are depending on.
It is difficult to supply the recommended dosage of pure collagen without fillers in the pill, tablet or gel forms. There are no added coloring or flavors which may dilute the daily recommended intake dose that you need to accomplish your desired results. This is why we at Pure Collage.US supply collagen in only a powdered form with no flavors, or coloring. We add absolutely no fillers. Our products can be seen as the GOLD STANDARD in the collagen industry and truly the PEARL OF ALL COLLAGEN PRODUCTS.
Our Pure Collagen with VERISOL® supplement is a registered premier formula which has been proven to be effective through double blind experiments using human participants. The results have been published in professional peer reviewed journals stating a significant decrease in the depth of wrinkles, increase in skin elasticity, and a built up increased amount of collagen in deep skin layers when 2.5 grams are taken orally once per day for 60 days. In these experiments with human subject the effects were long lasting after 30 days after collagen ingestion was terminated.
Loss of elasticity, moisture, and collagen diminishes over time. Pure Collagen can help reverse the effects of our natural aging process.
And what do they do?
All collagen in the body is made up of 20 different amino acids, or peptides, and acts as the body’s glue that holds tissue together. Different types of collagen are fairly specific in their effects on different parts of the body. Type 1 collagen primarily supports skin, tendons, vascular ligatures, bones, arterial walls, cornea, and organic parts of bone and teeth. Type 3 collagen also supports the skin, as well as the intestines and uterus, and works with Type 1 collagen. Collagen Type 2 works perfectly for supporting joints and bones. There are 28 different types of collagen in the body, each assisting in different tissue support.
When choosing a collagen product, it is important to know what type of collagen you are purchasing and what area of the body you are targeting in order to obtain the effects you wish to accomplish. Type 1 and type 3 collagen is produced to mainly target the skin which is of primary interest in decreasing the most common visual signs of aging. Our premier product, Pure Collagen with VERISOL®, is type 1 & 3 and is therefore appropriate for decreasing the depth of skin wrinkles, increasing skin elasticity, and increasing the amount of collagen which is deposited in deep skin layers.
