Collagen is the body’s most important building block and it makes up approximately 30% of the proteins in our bodies. Collagen is the key structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of all our connective tissues (including skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones). In essence, collagen is strong and flexible and is the ‘glue’ that holds everything together.
With age our bodies naturally start to produce less collagen hence the importance of increasing our collagen intake through a balanced healthy diet and supplementation. There are a variety of different forms of collagen available for this purpose and these include porcine and bovine collagen, however, in Joint Complex we selected Peptan® Marine Collagen, as it is the most bioavailable collagen on the market. Just one sachet of Joint Complex contains 5,000mg of Peptan® Marine Collagen.
