Naka Pro - Collagen - 315 Gram(s) - NPN: 80075504 -- What is Collagen?Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is key for all connective tissue (bone, skin, muscle, cartilage, tendons and ligaments). It provides the infrastructure for our entire musculoskeletal system making it essential for maintaining mobility. Ninety percent of bone mass is from Collagen. As we age, Collagen becomes extremely important, not only for bone health, but the health of our joints. It is also the secret to supple and youthful looking skin.What is Hydrolyzed Collagen?There are many clinical trials using Hydrolyzed Collagen for the treatment of Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis / Osteopenia as well as enhancing the appearance of skin. A similar compound, gelatin, has been used to treat musculoskeletal and dermatological issues for centuries. The medicinal uses of gelatin first appeared in writing in 1175 when Hildegard discussed it as a treatment for joint pain. The process for obtaining Hydrolyzed Collagen is slightly different than that of gelatin. Collagen undergoes a gentle enzymatic hydrolysis procedure that results in bioactive collagen peptides.
