What is collagen?Collagen is a protein of the connective tissue, which makes up about 30% of the body's protein. Collagen is the main biopolymer for living beings. This fibrous protein of the connective tissue comprises 70% of the skin and is necessary element of the human skeleton. It's unique physical and chemical features ensure the transfer of forces from sinews and maintain the appropriate firmness and flexibility of the skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, forming strong sheets and cables that support the structure of the skin, internal organs, cartilage and bones, as well as all the connective tissue in between. At the molar mass of 102,000 grams per mole, collagen is an extremely large protein, consisting of thousands of atoms. Its three dimensional structure consists of thickly woven fibrils that wrap around into a triple helix conformation. This structural support is what makes skin thick plump, and elastic.
Collagen and aging process.
What is happening that makes your skin look older? It loses its elasticity, it becomes thin; it forms wrinkles; it loses its smooth finish. What explains this? Skin is made up of proteins that support its cellular structure. At the deepest molecular level the proteins that connect skin cells diminish in quantity and become thin. After the age of 25, the biological processes that make these proteins can no longer produce them in abundance as they once did and the proteins are not as thick and long as they once were. As the effects of aging are due to improper protein production, this preparation is the first to fight directly with the cause of aging, not just the effects. Since stifling protein breakdown is the only way to prevent aging, reinforcing protein configurations is the most effective means to that end.
Multifactorial applications include the following:
- Preventing further wrinkles from forming.
- Supplementing diminished collagen levels.
- Stimulating collagen producing cells to its renewed activity.
Although many products claim to contain collagen as an ingredient, the quality and purity of it are tentative (most products contain 1.5%). What makes Salcoll Collagen special is the patented purification process that yields a 98% pure collagen product that remains biologically active. It remains alive so that it can biologically mend with the skin's incomplete proteins in order to regain the structural backing that it once had.
