Pineapple-flavored collagen is a combination of pure collagen protein with natural pineapple flavoring. One serving contains as much as 10,000 mg of collagen, which is a very high dose to ensure the best results. Flavored collagen can be mixed with water or added to juices, smoothies and cocktails.
Flavored collagen contains no artificial colors or preservatives.
What is collagen?
Collagen is one of the main components of connective tissue. Its main purpose is to join cells together, which is why it is a building block of most organs: skin, bones, joints, teeth, blood vessels or cornea in the eye. But its role is much bigger than that. Collagen protects internal organs, i.e. kidneys, stomach or liver, forming a protective layer around them that keeps them in place. Moreover, it has a protective function in the immune system, preventing the intrusion of microorganisms, toxins or cancer cells.
Moreover, collagen provides skin elasticity and softness. It constitutes as much as 60% of all protein in the skin, so it has a decisive effect on skin appearance.
Why supplement collagen?
The collagen regenerative capability decreases with age.
Collagen is a structural protein produced in special cells called fibroblasts, in the dermis layer. Fibroblasts also produce other structural components, i.e. elastin and hyaluronan.
Both the production and degradation of collagen take place in the dermis. Enzymes are responsible for degradation, while collagen repairs and replaces damaged cells or builds new cell structures throughout our lives.
As years go by, enzymes responsible for collagen degradation become more and more active, while collagen production by fibroblasts is reduced. As a result, skin at the age of 80 exhibits four times as much damaged collagen as skin at the age of 21–30.
