Eggshell Membrane Collagen Support Complex Features & Benefits
- Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Proteins are made up of amino acids, and the amino acids glycine and proline (or hydroxyproline) are essential build- ing blocks of collagen. Collagen’s rigidity and resistance are why it is the structural support protein of ligaments, tendons, bones, and skin. There are 28 different types of collagens, but 90% of the human body’s collagen is type I. As we age, our skin collagen content decreases, reducing elasticity and resulting in wrinkles.
- Eggshell membrane has been traditionally used in Asian cultures to promote healthy, beautiful skin.
- Eggshell Membrane Collagen Support Complex is 40% protein, containing all vital amino acids required to help your body produce collagen.
- Collagen in Hair and Nails.
Several proteins are critical for strong, healthy hair and nails. Keratin is the principal fibrous protein in hair and nails and works alongside elastin and type I collagen to reduce breakage and maintain a healthy structure.
- Collagen in the Skin.
Type I collagen is found in abundance in skin, and functions to help maintain optimal moisture levels and reduce excessive wrinkling.
- Bones and Joints.
Collagen, mainly Type I, works alongside crucial minerals, such as calcium and magnesium in providing the tensile strength for healthy bones. In addition, Type I collagen is a main component of the connective tissue that makes up tendons and ligaments. To provide additional support and strength to our skeletal system, joint cartilage responsible for cushioning and supporting our joints, is made up of Type II collagen.
