What is COLLinstant® collagen?

.

COLLinstant® is a high-quality raw material used in the manufacture collagen dietary supplements -their main ingredient. It exists in the form of peptides hydrolysed collagen with molecular weight 3kDaand.

The COLLinstant® family of formulas also includes COLLinstant® LMW, which is a form of ultra-small collagen peptides whose molecular weight is less than or equal to 1,000 Da.

Both COLLinstant® formulations guarantee excellent solubility and bioavailability to the bodyand.

.

What is bioavailability?

.

Bioavailability is both the extent to which a substance can be absorbed into the body, and how much the body will be able to utilise the absorbed substances.

Why hydrolysed collagen?

.

In the process of hydrolysis, large collagen molecules are broken down into smaller and more easily absorbed peptides. This form youth protein is more easily absorbed into the body - with no loss of the parts that would not pass through the intestinal barrier due to their sizeand.

In simple terms: your body will benefit more easily from hydrolysed collagen than its native form.

What does COLLinstant® collagen contain?

.

In COLLinstant® raw material you will find type I collagen and type III collagen. See what amino acids this product will provide you withand.

Effects of COLLinstant® collagen supplementation

.

Collagen supplementation can improve not only the appearance of the skin, but also contribute to the maintenance of mobility and overall body homeostasis.

skin, hair and nails

.

Collagen is the natural building block of the skin, and the amino acids of which it is composed also form hair and nails. By taking collagen supplements daily, you provide your body with the key ingredients to produce the necessary proteins. This makes your skin more supple and your hair and nails strongerand.

By adding collagen to your daily diet collagen, you will strengthen your hair structure, preventing hair loss and improving the overall condition of your locks. Instead, your nail plate can stop splitting and breaking and regain its shine.

Collagen can also slow down the skin's ageing processes, as these are closely linked to the decreasing synthesis of this protein in the body. Taking collagen can therefore prevent the loss of skin elasticity and the appearance of wrinklesand.

Tendons, joints and bones

.

Regular consumption of collagen has beneficial effects on tendons, joints and even bones. Daily intake of this protein can help maintain their health. Indeed, collagen is the main component of connective tissues in the body, so its supplementation can improve tendon flexibility and joint mobilityand. In addition, collagen affects the production of chondroitin sulphate, which protects joints from damage.

Collagen consumption can help reduce the risk of tendon injury during physical activity. Collagen strengthens the structure of tendons, making them more resistant to stretching and tearingand.

Collagen is also essential in the bone structures on which minerals such as calcium are deposited. Its adequate concentration in the bone prevents demineralisation and associated conditions such as osteoporosisand.

Resistance, digestion and internal organs

.

Adequate collagen intake can help maintain healthy skin and mucous membranes, the natural barriers that protect the body from harmful substances and pathogens. This has implications for improving overall immunityand.

.
Damaged mucous membranes, are open gates for pathogens. The mucous membrane requires regeneration - this is important especially during infections.
.

.

Youth protein plays an important role in the function of the mucous membranes of the stomach, intestines and oesophagus, providing protection against damage. It promotes the regeneration and maintenance of the intestinal barrier, resulting in improved digestive processesand.

Collagen is also a component of the tissues that make up your internal organs, as well as the walls of blood vessels. It therefore ensures the proper functioning and regeneration of the structures that make up your bodyand.

.
This can be important after surgeries, operations or fractures, collagen speeds up their regeneration.

FAQ

.
. Is COLLinstant collagen Halal?.

COLLinstant® does not contain additives of pork origin or alcohol. The manufacturer also has a special COLLinstant® Halal line, which meets the strict requirements already at the production stage.

. Is COLLinstant collagen kosher?.

Yes, COLLinstant® is a raw material that meets kosher criteria. The manufacturer provides a certificate on its website to prove this.

. How long can collagen be taken?.

The maximum time of collagen supplementation has not been established. Because it is a natural component of your diet (the right kind of protein), you can supplement your diet with it virtually all the time. If you want to achieve visible results, take collagen regularly.

You may notice an improvement in the condition of your skin and hair in about 2 months, but this depends on your individual body's needs and your state of health.

. Who should supplement with collagen?.

People who struggle to maintain healthy and supple joints, skin, hair and nails should consider collagen supplementation. Older people, who naturally lose collagen as they age, may also benefit from taking it. 

Additionally, physically active people who put more stress on their joints often see benefits from collagen supplementation.

. What time of the day to take collagen?

The time of day you take collagen, and whether you consume it on an empty stomach or with a meal is irrelevant. What is important, however, is the regularity of supplementation, as this is the only way to ensure results. Take collagen at a time of day when it is most convenient for you.

.
. How much collagen to take per day?.

According to scientific studies, daily servings of 2.5 to 15 grams of collagen are considered effective and safe. Most good manufacturers of dietary supplements with this protein offer products providing 5-10 grams of this protein per day.

. What supplements to look for in dietary supplements with collagen?.

In collagen dietary supplements the most valuable is vitamin C, as it supports the body's natural production of the youth protein. Another versatile supplement would be hyaluronic acid, as it will benefit both the skin (it will moisturise it) and the joints (it is essential for the production of synovial fluid).
