Increase Bioavailability

Bioavailability in terms of collagen supplements refers to the efficiency with which your body can absorb, utilize, and convert collagen into its active form for use in various biological processes

Increased Bioavailability is accomplished by:

Bioactive Targeting

Bioactive Collagen Peptides® are more prominent in target areas to stimulate the target cells

Add Key Collagen Rebuilding Agents

A cofactor for enzymes that catalyses the hydroxylation of proline and lysine, promoting the optimal folding of the stable collagen triple-helix configuration (molecular positioning)

Acts as a co-factor for specific glycosyltransferase enzymes. Sugar molecules added by these enzymes play a critical role in stabilizing the collagen triple helix

Zinc is a co-factor needed for enzymes involved in multiple steps of collagen synthesis

Necessary for the formation of key amino acids – cysteine and methionine. These are critical building blocks for collagen molecules. Cysteine provides the sulphur atoms necessary for the formation of disulfide bonds which aids stability in the collagen structure. Methionine acts as a crucial starting point for the assembly of collagen’s structural components.

*MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is used as a source of sulphur, by providing the necessary sulphur atoms for cysteine and methionine synthesis
