Linoflax Mega Collagen liquid formula contains hydrolyzed bovine collagen and vitamin C. It is used to rejuvenate the skin, hair and nails. Helps restore lost collagen that your body stops producing through the years. It is the main component of connective tissue, and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. The human body slows down producing its own collagen from ages 30 to 35.
Traditional Use: tonic for the skin (provides elasticity and fights expression lines and wrinkles), nails, bones and joints. Taken before bedtime Mega Collagen promotes a restful sleep.
Collagen, the most abundant protein in the body, is found in skin, bones, ligaments, cartilage, teeth and muscles. Collagen also gives support, bulk and shape to organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys. Daily wear and tear, sun exposure and free radical damage can reduce the production of collagen. Research has shown that collagen supplements might be helpful for some health conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. A health care professional always should be consulted before taking a collagen powder drink.
Types of Collagen
Collagen consists of three protein chains bound together in a triple helix, and amino acids form together in a special sequence to make the helix stable. There are many types of collagen, but the most common are :
type 1, found in the skin, teeth, bone, ligaments and tendons;
type 2, found in cartilage;
type 3, which gives shape to organs, such as the liver, heart and kidneys;
and type 4, found in the blood vessels of muscles and in the eye.
