Bovine collagen supplement function
Collagen itself consists of three long amino acid chains, each of which contains more than 1,000 amino acids. These chains are twisted, forming a spiral conformation. The full-length form of collagen is difficult to digest. The gelatin form of bovine collagen has been partially broken down by a process called partial hydrolysis. Because gelatin has not been completely decomposed, it is more difficult for the human body to absorb gelatin and may cause some water retention or even abdominal distension.
Introduction of bovine collagen supplements
Collagen is an important part of human bones, especially cartilage tissue. 59% of articular cartilage is collagen, and 33% of bone is collagen. Collagen is the decisive substance for bone health. When bones grow, they must first synthesize enough collagen to form a bone skeleton. Calcium can be deposited on bones to produce healthy bones.
Collagen can be divided into several types, such as i-type, ii-type, iii-type and so on. Type I collagen is usually found in the skin, while type II collagen is mainly found in cartilage.
Our type II bovine collagen is produced from bovine cartilage.
Collagen is the most abundant and widely distributed protein in the human body. It is mainly distributed in connective tissue and is a functional protein related to tissue and organ function. It has obvious effects on human skin, blood vessels, bones, tendons, teeth and cartilage. Therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that collagen is the scaffold of all life, and the normal function of many tissues and organs in the human body is directly related to collagen. It can be seen that whether from the medical point of view or from the perspective of health care, proper supplementation of collagen is beneficial to enhance the bone health of middle-aged and elderly people.
Collagen and bone health: When the human body lacks collagen, it is not easy to fix calcium, resulting in loss of calcium, resulting in decreased bone density and osteoporosis. Therefore, proper collagen supplementation can help prevent the occurrence of osteoporosis or the healing of damaged parts; maintain joint health. Since collagen is a major component of articular cartilage tissue, it is responsible for constructing the framework of cartilage tissue. Therefore, supplementing the right amount of collagen can maintain the automatic formation mechanism of the body's own cartilage tissue, protect the joint from wear and damage, and prevent osteoarthritis caused by various causes.
