GOOD TO KNOW
Collagen is the building block of our body and is the most common protein found in the human body – it makes up over 30% of the body’s proteins. Collagen gives our body support and structure and is present in all connective tissues such as skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. As the body’s structural framework, collagen plays a crucial role in supporting and connecting everything together. There are a considerable number of clinical studies showing the benefits of collagen peptides in skin, bones and joints, weight management and sports nutrition. Our collagen mainly contains Type I and Type III collagen, the most common type of collagen found in the human body, which is found in connective tissue (skin, bones and tendons). The presence of type III collagen is strongly dependent on age: Young skin can contain up to 50% of type III collagen, but with age this percentage decreases to 5-10
Cocoa is the king of antioxidants, which makes it rise into the super league of power foods. Cocoa is also distinguished by its high content of magnesium, calcium, unsaturated fatty acids and iron, which make it particularly valuable. At the same time, cocoa has a reputation for making us happy and having a positive effect on our general well-being: Feel sweet and happy!
The tropical energy-giver is the new star among the watchmakers. The small seeds of the guarana plant contain two to three times as much caffeine as coffee beans, but our body absorbs and breaks it down more slowly. This leads to a gentle and even release of the guarani (caffeine), which makes it more digestible for us. But Guarana can also be beauty! The antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of guarana help to reduce skin impurities. The caffeine content in guarana also helps to stimulate and revitalize the skin with increased blood flow, making the skin firmer and more refreshed.
The Peruvian super root is also known as Andean ginseng and is said to show its stimulating effect in a very special way. Maca is characterized by a variety of healthy ingredients and has the effect of an adaptogen, making it the ultimate post-workout booster.
The antioxidant, also called ascorbic acid, is probably the best known of all vitamins. It is mainly found in fresh vegetables, is involved in many metabolic processes and protects the cells from aggressive oxygen compounds (free radicals). Due to its antioxidant effect it protects our cells from rapid aging. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for normal skin function.
Power for the nerves. Sunflower lecithin contains the natural lecithin total complex from sunflower seeds in high concentration. Lecithins, in turn, belong to the group of phospholipids, which are important components of cell membranes, including those of the brain and nerve cells, and play a central role in the repair and regeneration of body cells.
