Collagen constitutes of aprox. 25% of the body structure and participates in vital functions of almost all systems, organs, and tissues. With age, the organism loses the capacity for collagen reconstruction. Collagen synthesis disorders occur also in situations of its intense destruction, with permanent overloads (physical activity, high-performance sports) and autoimmune diseases (osteoarthritis).
Collagen metabolism impairment is manifested not only by disfunctions within the musculoskeletal system (rigidity, periarticular pain) but also within the tissues and organs for which collagen and similar substances play strategic functions. Collagen deficiency leads to senile body changes: wrinkles, cellulite, skin dryness, nail and hair lustrelessness, and hunched silhouette. The most dangerous for health and life are immune system disorders as collagen plays a very important role in immune defence - it limits the penetration and dissemination of pathogenic factors - environmental toxins, micro-organisms, and cancer cells.
All these symptoms can be prevented or delayed by collagen supplementation.
