Collagen peptides from 100% willow cattle (50%), vegetable fibre (inulin) (23%), vitamin C
GOOD TO KNOW:
Collagen / Collagen
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 structural framework of the body, collagen plays a crucial role in supporting and connecting everything together. There are a considerable number of clinical studies that demonstrate the benefits of collagen peptides in relation to 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 proportion decreases to 5-10
Vegetable fibre (inulin)
The healthy fibre provides superfood for the good bacteria in our intestines and has a prebiotic effect. Prebiotics are indigestible food components for bacterial species in the colon. Inulin Boost helps the strains of bacteria that are beneficial for our organism and other useful microorganisms to spread more effectively. This promotes a healthy intestinal flora and potential pathogens make life difficult. Furthermore, inulin supports the improved absorption of nutrients and minerals (e.g. calcium, magnesium).
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.
