Gelpro Peptipro Multi Collagen - 454 grams
Building on Gelpro's reputation for bringing you high quality products, they have developed a unique blend of 5 types of food-based collagen.
Type I Collagen: is the most common type of collagen found in our body and food. It is found in skin, tendons, ligaments and organs. Without a doubt, type I collagen is the most abundant protein found in humans (and in all vertebrates). Type I helps to form our skin, bones, tendons, corneas, blood vessel walls and other connective tissues. Type I is the strongest type of collagen. If you're looking for a collagen for supporting skin health, type 1 is a top choice since it's literally a building block of the skin. Generally speaking, our collagen production naturally decreases as we age, which is why many people are turning to collagen supplements featuring type 1 collagen to support healthy skin.
Type II Collagen: is what makes up cartilage and connective tissue. Type II is the major collagen found in cartilage. Cartilage is connective tissue that protects the ends of long bones at the joints. It's also a structural component of the ear, the nose, the bronchial tubes, the rib cage and more. Since type ll collagen helps to form the cartilage that protects our joints, it's no wonder that this variety of collagen is often known for supporting healthy joints.
Type III Collagen: makes up part of the extracellular matrix which keeps our skins and organs together. Type III is a fibrillar collagen and is a major component of our skin and organs. In the body. Like type l, it is often in supplements designed to support healthy skin. Types l and lll are two of the most abundant types of collagen in the human body.
Type V: is found in the surface cells and in hair. Type V collagen is one of the minor collagen components, forming interstitial collagen fibers and plays a significant role in regulating the development of collagen fibers of connective tissue. Type V collagen also functions to create the cells of a pregnant women's placenta and contributes to a healthy implantation. Type V collagen also helps to form cell surfaces and hair.
Type X: is responsible for the creation of new bones and cartilage. Collagen type X is a protein typically present in normal joint cartilage. Type X collagen is described as a “network-forming collagen.
