The Power of Collagen

Collagen is like the glue that holds us together. It is the most abundant protein in the human body found in our skin, hair, nails, joints, muscles, bones and even organs. It provides structure, strength, and elasticity to our connective tissues, keeping them firm and flexible.

Did you know that collagen also plays an important role in the body’s healing process? It orchestrates the repair of tissue damage, relieves inflammation and so much more. By replenishing our collagen levels, we can actively bolster the strength and resilience of our bodies, while also slowing down the signs of aging.

Factors that affect your body’s collagen levels

As we age, our body’s natural collagen production begins to decline. However, there are a few other factors that can deplete our collagen reservoirs, including:

  • High sugar consumption
  • Excessive alcohol consumption and smoking
  • Too much sunlight or training in the heat
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lack of key nutrients for collagen synthesis (such as silicon, zinc and vitamin C)

Understanding the power of collagen peptides

Like all proteins, collagen is made up of amino acids linked together. Think of collagen like a triple-stranded necklace, each strand strung with 1,050 pearls, and each pearl representing an amino acid. However, as the body is unable to absorb collagen in its whole form, it must be broken down into peptides during the digestive process. This is where hydrolyzed collagen peptides really shine, breaking collagen down into smaller chains for better absorption.

When it comes to peptides, two key factors determine their efficacy — size and sequence. Peptide size acts as the key to unlocking collagen’s potential. Just as the right key fits into a specific lock, CanPrev’s collagen peptides are precisely sized and sequenced to target and enhance collagen production where our body needs it the most. Whether you’re looking to prevent creaky joints, increase muscle growth or achieve plump, glowing skin, our collagen formulas are here to help.

Unlocking the potential of Type 2 collagen

Type 2 collagen, unlike other types, is undenatured or unaltered. This means that its natural structure is kept intact. But how is this achieved? Through polypeptide chains. These chains are essentially long strings of amino acids which link together, forming the sturdy framework that gives Type 2 collagen its unique properties.

This form of collagen works specifically on the immune system which modulates our inflammatory response. This in turn helps to reduce joint pain and results in a more rapid restoration of cartilage destruction in our joints caused by auto-immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

CanPrev’s Type 2 Collagen has been proven to reduce joint pain and stiffness in as little as 7 days. Formulated with boswellia, a powerful anti-inflammatory, it helps to reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis and is also suitable for those trying to manage chronically painful joint conditions caused by auto-immune disorders. It can also be used to turn down the heat on inflammation caused by an acute injury.

Collagen does a lot for us. By nourishing our bodies, we can boost and replenish our collagen levels, fortifying our bodies against aging and lifestyle stresses.
