To understand the importance of collagen in relation to your skin, you must first understand what collagen is. Collagen is one of the body’s structural proteins. It is made up of amino acids. Collagen makes up 90% of connective tissue, such as cartilage and tendons; 75% of bone; and 70% of skin. Collagen keeps skin looking smooth and youthful because it gives your skin its elasticity, strength, and resilience. But what happens to collagen as you age? This article will examine this question and explain how Organic Apoteke products stimulate collagen to rebuild the skin as we age.
What is collagen?
Collagen is one of three types of protein in our body (the other two are keratin and elastin). Collagen is a long chain made up of amino acids—the building blocks for all proteins. They hold together to form fibers that become tendons, bones, ligaments and even skin. Without collagen we would have no bones or skin. All collagen contains 19 different amino acids, with a particularly high content of hydroxyproline, glycine, and proline.
What benefits does collagen have?
Collagen is a protein that makes up about 30% of your skin’s dry weight. Collagen is also what gives skin its elasticity and firmness.
Why most collagen supplements & collagen creams don’t work?
The body can’t absorb collagen in whole form. Collagen must be broken down during the digestive process. On then can the collagen amino acids be absorbed into the bloodstream. To increase collagen’s bioavailability, some collagen supplements are hydrolyzed. This means that collagen’s long amino acid chains are broken down via a chemical process into peptides consisting of just two or three amino acids. These peptides are then absorbed through the GUT. But collagen most definitely cannot be absorbed into the skin.
The Organic Apoteke Solution
Organic Apoteke has all-natural solutions for getting rid of wrinkles. Our products contain the 19 amino acids that make up collagen in a form that is easily absorbed by the skin. When the skin absorbs these amino acids it can efficiently rebuild collagen – giving you firmer, toned skin.
