Pourquoi prendre du collagène ?

Why take collagen?

Why use collagen ?

Collagen is a protein present in all the structures of our body: skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments. It represents more than 30% of the total proteins of our body.

The problem :

It is that the older we get, the more we lose collagen : hence its usefulness both in the sports field and in the beauty and well-being sphere, where we hear more and more about it.

Where is collagen found?

Collagen is essentially animal and can come from the marine or bovine world. In the case of fish, it comes from their skin or cartilage, or even from the shell of certain crustaceans. In cattle, it also comes from the skin or cartilage.

For vegetarians, you can find collagen from eggshell membranes: their dosage will however be much lower than marine or bovine collagen.

What form of collagen to use?

Collagen is usually found in the form of PEPTIDES.

Indeed, collagen is such a heavy protein that it cannot be assimilated as it is by the body. This is why we find hydrolyzed forms on the market: hydrolysis makes it possible to cut the molecule into peptides, and thus to considerably reduce its size. There is one exception: UCII collagen (UC2) which is native type 2 collagen.

Types of collagens

Collagens are often accompanied by the “type” formula: there are 3: Type 1, type 2, type 3.

Types 1 and 3 are derived from skin and cartilage. These types indicate only a source and not their field of effectiveness.

Is it good for the skin, for the joints to take collagen?

Collagen peptides (hydrolyzed collagen) act everywhere on the body: skin, cartilage, joints, tendons, muscles.

No matter what supplement you take, it will act all over the place and will not be selective.
