Collagen is found in your skin, muscle, nails, hair, joints and even your bones. Your body makes its own collagen by breaking down the proteins you consume from food into amino acids.
However, as your body ages, it loses some of its ability to break down the protein from your diet and create collagen on its own. Asyour body loses collagen over time, we see the effects of aging through wrinkled skin, muscle stiffness, joint pain and bone loss.
Supplementing collagen can be an effective strategy to reduce the signs of aging, but not all supplements are created equal. Understanding the structure of the collagen protein is key to understanding how supplements, like Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides, can help your body age more gracefully.
The collagen protein itself is made up of three amino acid chains that are wrapped up together. In their natural form, these chains are long and wrapped together, which makes it hard for the body to break down and digest. But these chains can be separated using a water extraction process (hydrolysis) to createhydrolyzed collagen. Then the hydrolyzed collagen chains can be further broken down into smaller pieces using enzymes to create collagen peptide chains (1).
These shorter collagen peptide chains are more readily absorbed by your body (bioavailable) and are more easily used by your body (bioactive) to once again build and repair collagen. That is why collagen peptide chains are called bioactive collagen peptides.
Collagen peptide supplements are backed by clinical researchwith many health benefits. Because the peptides are easy to absorb, they can be immediately used by the body. Daily use of collagen peptide supplements can result in healthy, glowing skin, strong nails, shining hair and smoothly working joints. Supplements are typically offered as collagen peptide powder or pills.
Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides Powderis backed by science and third-party tested to ensure it is the most bioavailable collagen supplement on the market. It includesDigeSEB, which are digestive enzymes that specifically help with the splitting of collagen peptide chains, thereby enhancing your body’s ability to digest and absorb carbohydrates, proteins and fats. The more collagen you absorb, the easier it is for your body to begin to replace and repair its damaged parts.
The collagen powder is a blend of hydrolyzed collagen protein and DigeSEB digestive enzymes that deliver six grams of protein and 50 mg of enzymes in every 50 ml scoop, which comes in the package.
Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides Powder is an odorless, flavorless formulation that you can add to your favorite drink, yogurt, oatmeal, or other foods to get a protein boost without changing how your food tastes. It’s that easy to use.
