why collagen is the glue that holds everything together...

Collagen is one of the most abundant body proteins, making up about 30% of your body and approximately 80% of all connective tissue (natural component in tendons, joints, ligaments, muscles, hair and skin and is necessary for the successful maintenance thereof). 

As we age this protein is slowly lost, leading to joint degeneration, synovial (joint) fluid loss and dramatic skin changes (wrinkles, cellulite, dryness and loss of elasticity). 

Collagen is not available in food so supplementing with a highly absorbable hydrolysed collagen is recommended to help maintain the vitality of connective tissues and  improve general health & appearance.

“Within five years of menopause 30% of skin collagen is lost.” Br. Med. J. (Clin. Res. Ed.) 287 (8402): 1337.38.1883

Studies show why Type 1 Hydrolysed Collagen is a Powerful Bond in Anti-Ageing Technology:
» Type 1 Hydrolysed Collagen, is the same Collagen as that found in human skin and bones.

» It has been clinically shown to improve skin moisture level, skin suppleness and skin smoothness. It does so by reducing the number of micro relief furrows and preventing the formation of deep wrinkles.

» Apart from the other 18 amino acids, the glycine and proline concentration is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins.

» It is easily used and digested by the human body.

» It has been scientifically proven that taking 10g a day of Type 1 Hydrolysed Collagen for a period of 4 to 24 weeks will  increase bone mass density and have a positive effect on relieving joint pain.

NuCol contains both Type 1 and 2 Hydrolised Collagen which in combination have been shown to assist in improving skin moisture & preventing deep wrinkles and to support healthy joints & bone strength.
