Collagen ComplexFantastic Elastic
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Known as the “body’s scaffolding”, it’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word collagen derives from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
Our Collagen Complex has been specifically formulated to contain a number of the most important collagens (there are more than 16 different ones found in your body) as well as elastin, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, keratin and hundreds of different proteins.
Research suggests that the components of our Collagen Complex will:
Promote nail health and strength
Help minimise wrinkles and signs of aging
Reduce joint inflammation and joint pain
Promote skin health and elasticity
Maintain and regenerates cartilage
No Artificial Additives
A unique formula
Eggshell membrane is naturally high in collagen and hyaluronic acid, two key components that make up healthy hair, skin, joints and nails.
Our Collagen Complex is hydrolysed, which means it is already broken down to give you faster results.
Benefits backed by science
Hair & nails
Supplementing collagen may increase the strength of your nails by preventing brittleness. Additionally, it may stimulate your hair and nails to grow longer.
As you enter your thirties and forties, your body produces less and lower quality collagen. One of the visible signs of this is in your skin, which becomes less firm and supple and more vulnerable to damage such as dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. Several recent studies show that supplementing collagen may help slow signs of skin ageing by reducing wrinkles and dryness, increase skin elasticity and help it better retain moisture.
Bones, joints & muscles
Bones: Bones contain substantial amounts of collagen, which gives them structure and helps keep them strong. Just as the collagen in your body deteriorates as you age, so does bone mass. As collagen production slows with age, bones can become weaker as you lose the collagen necessary to keep the bones strong and supported. This may lead to conditions like osteoporosis, which is characterised by low bone density and linked to a higher risk of bone fractures. Studies have shown that taking collagen supplements may have certain effects in the body that help inhibit the bone breakdown that leads to osteoporosis.
Joints: Collagen helps stimulate the production of cartilage—a rubber-like tissue that covers and protects bones and helps joints move smoothly. Taking collagen supplements has been shown to reduce inflammation and stimulate collagen synthesis in the body. This may help promote pain relief among people with joint disorders like osteoarthritis. Researchers have theorised that supplemental collagen may accumulate in cartilage and stimulate your tissues to make collagen. They have suggested this may lead to lower inflammation, better support of your joints, and reduced pain.
Muscles: There is some evidence to suggest that using collagen supplements may help increase muscle mass, particularly those with age-related muscle mass loss. Between 1–10% of muscle tissue is composed of collagen, which is necessary to keep your muscles strong and functioning properly.
Why take our Collagen Complex
Your body relies on collagen, its most abundant protein, that forms tissues and skin. Our Collagen Complex has been specifically formulated to contain a number of the most important collagens (there are more than 16 different ones found in your body) as well as elastin, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, keratin and hundreds of different proteins.
As you age, your body produces less and lower quality collagen. Your bone density weakens and wrinkles start to appear and increase with age. Our Collagen Complex is hydrolysed, which means it is already broken down to give you faster results.
Hydrolysed collagen is already broken down for rapid absorption to give you faster results.
Everyone’s health profile is unique, and therefore, so are their results. You may see results as quickly as 2 weeks, but it may take up to 6 months.
Absolutely. Our Collagen Complex is vegetarian friendly.
There are not many known risks associated with taking collagen supplements. There have been reports of digestive side effects, such as feelings of fullness and heartburn.
However, if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, we recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional before supplementing our Collagen Complex.
Research suggests you can take Collagen Complex when it's convenient for you. We'd recommend earlier in the day and with a meal and water to help absorption. Avoid taking with caffeine as this can prevent absorption and increase excretion.
