Building material in the human body

The element is considered the basis of the connective tissue of organs. It is responsible for the skeleton of the skin, consisting of about 70% of this protein. The component also participates in the structure of hair, nails, joints, bone and muscle tissue, ligamentous apparatus.

What is Collagen??

Collagen is a substance on which the aging of the body largely depends. The first changes in its synthesis by the human body begin at the age of about 25 years. Taking a dietary supplement with this nutrient in the composition helps not only to preserve youth, but also to restore joints, build muscles, prevent injuries to muscles and ligamentous apparatus during physical exertion, restore the external beauty and elasticity of the skin.

BioTela produces collagen of animal origin in the form of a powder for oral administration. The dietary supplement is taken in a diluted form once a day on an empty stomach. The dry product is measured with a spoon and mixed first with a tablespoon of liquid until the lumps disappear, after which 200-250 ml of non-hot water or juice is added. The duration of the preventive and anti-aging course is 3 months, after 8 weeks the reception can be resumed. For therapeutic purposes, collagen is used about six months 2-3 times with a break of 4-5 weeks.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a filamentous (fibrillar) protein consisting of a chain of various amino acids. Depending on the set of the latter, 28 types of collagen are isolated, of which only three are synthesized in the human body.

The element is considered the basis of the connective tissue of organs. It is responsible for the skeleton of the skin, consisting of about 70% of this protein. The component also participates in the structure of hair, nails, joints, bone and muscle tissue, ligamentous apparatus.

The synthesis of collagen occurs from proteins obtained from food by special cells-fibroblasts. The process includes 3 stages, is under the control of adrenal hormones with the participation of vitamin C. After 25-30 years, its intensity decreases, the existing collagen bonds lose strength, the well-being of the body depends more on the content of the nutrient in food.

In addition to hormonal changes that occur with age, external factors also affect the production of collagen:

  • the presence of bad habits – alcohol and nicotine addiction;
  • frequent stress;
  • incorrect diet;
  • unfavorable ecology;
  • prolonged exposure to the sun;
  • sedentary lifestyle.

How does the lack of collagen manifest itself

Age-related changes in the synthesis of substances in the body are accompanied by the following signs:

1. sagging skin

2. the appearance of wrinkles, cellulite

3. rapid fatigue;

4. reduced visual acuity

5. muscle and joint pain

6. deterioration of the hair condition

7. slow nail growth

8. fragility of blood vessels

9. frequent mood swings

10. caries, tooth loss

11. irritability

12. bone fragility

Who should take it and why

Taking collagen is recommended for adults over 20 years old, as well as for those who are actively engaged in sports or trying to lose weight. It is especially important to provide additional protein intake:

  1. Patients suffering from diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The latter include arthrosis, arthritis, osteoporosis, osteochondrosis, as well as injuries of the ligamentous apparatus and bones. For these pathologies, a course of the drug in an increased dosage is recommended – 10 grams per day.
  2. For athletes. Collagen helps to avoid injuries during physical exertion, build muscle mass faster and achieve a better effect from training. The need for this substance is especially high among bodybuilders and weightlifters.
  3. People who have problems with being overweight. Taking collagen normalizes metabolism and promotes rapid weight loss.
  4. Women during menopause. Due to hormonal changes in the body, collagen fibers become more fragile, they are destroyed faster. Taking a dietary supplement will help reduce the impact of changes in the body on appearance

How to drink collagen correctly

You need to take collagen in the morning, on an empty stomach, half an hour before breakfast. When using increased doses of the drug, for example, athletes, people suffering from joint diseases, as well as those who have digestive problems, it is recommended to break the reception into several times.

Collagen is not compatible with dairy products and whey proteins, so consumption should occur no earlier than 2 hours after using the supplement. For a greater effect from taking collagen, it is advisable to combine it with taking hyaluronic and ascorbic acids, as well as vitamin D.

Features of animal origin collagen

Most of the collagen sold as a dietary supplement is produced from the skin and tendons of farm animals-pigs or cattle. These drugs are cheaper than analogues obtained during the processing of fish and seafood. However, unlike the latter, their digestibility when ingested is lower, since larger molecules of the substance are harder to digest.

Useful properties for the body

Collagen is considered a "building material" in the human body. The entire connective tissue consists of it. The element is also involved in a number of biological processes.


Cellular regeneration and recovery

Collagen is indispensable for healing wounds and fractures, restoring the structural integrity of tissues.


Support for firmness and elasticity of the skin

Most of the collagen is contained in the third layer of the skin – the dermis. It performs a frame function, and is responsible for the smoothness and elasticity of the covers.


Healthy appearance of hair and nails

Collagen has a beneficial effect on the strength and appearance of the hair. They split and fall out less, increase in volume, grow faster, acquire a healthy shine. The nail plates also become thicker and break less often.


Building muscle mass

About 10% of the muscles are made up of collagen. Its reception allows you to prevent a decrease in their tone with age and strengthen the effect of sports training.


Injury prevention

Collagen is necessary for bone strength, elasticity of the ligamentous apparatus and joint health. It increases the stability of the structures of the musculoskeletal system to physical overloads and shocks.


Improved digestion

Some amino acids in the composition of the nutrient have a beneficial effect on the organs of the gastrointestinal tract, normalizing their work. For example, the intensity of inflammation in irritable bowel syndrome decreases.


Strengthening of the vascular wall

Collagen prevents the fragility of blood vessels, reducing the risk of strokes and the formation of atherosclerotic deposits.


Prevention of oncology

Collagen not only helps to preserve youth, but also prevents cancer cell degeneration.


Weight loss

Collagen improves metabolism, promotes weight loss, and also prevents the formation of cellulite.


Improving the quality of sleep

With sufficient intake of collagen in the body, falling asleep occurs faster, sleep becomes deeper, after waking up there is no feeling of fatigue and lethargy.
