Total Body Benefits
Collagen is so important for our body. The word collagen comes from the ancient Greek word “kolla”, which translates to “glue”.
This is perfectly apt as its function is to hold our body together, like glue, providing firmness and strength.
Gram for Gram, Type I collagen is stronger than steel.
If you think of our body as a house, collagen is the walls, the pillars and the joists that hold everything together.
Collagen doesn’t just keep you looking better on the outside, it keeps you feeling stronger on the inside as well.
As the major protein in the connective tissues of the body, collagen ensures the elasticity and strength of skin and bones, and of course, cartilage, which protects your joints and puts a spring in your step.
Bones are made mostly of collagen, which gives them structure and helps keep them strong. Just as the collagen in your body deteriorates as you age, so does your bone mass. This may lead to conditions like osteoporosis, which is characterised by low bone density and linked to a higher risk of bone fractures.
As we improve our health with Synergy’s Collagen+, our bodies will start to pick up their natural production of amino acids to keep us healthy and strong.
Most other collagen products only have 400mg or 500mg of active collagen in them – our Collagen+ has a massive 5,800mg!!
As well as Hyaluronic Acid and Zinc, we have added Vitamin C, which acts as a catalyst for collagen. If your collagen doesn’t come with Vitamin C – it will not work as well – and that is an absolute fact, whatever the product.
Collagen forms a key part of the extracellular matrix within our connective tissue, providing structure and support to our skin. Collagen supplementation boosts the body’s own production and provides the necessary support to our skin.
We lose collagen as a result of poor diet, excessive sun exposure, air pollution and certain genetic predispositions. Also, as part of our ageing process, which starts very early – in our mid 20s in fact! This leads to a loss of skin firmness and elasticity with lines and wrinkles forming as collagen depletes.
