Collagen is measured in daltons; this lets you know the size of the collagen and how fast it will be absorbed. Ologen collagen is 1000 daltons, ideal for your body to absorb and that’s why you will see and feel results in only 7 days.
Disclaimer ( results are dependent on the health of your digestive system, remember it’s not what you eat, its what your body can absorb through your digestive tract.)
What is collagen
You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It’s one of the main building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in all body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth.
Four different types of collagen
There are at least 16 types of collagen.; The four main types are type I, II, III, and IV
Here’s a closer look at the four main types of collagen and their role in your body:
- Type I: This type accounts for 90% of your body’s collagen and is made of densely packed fibres. It provides structure to skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue, and teeth.
- Type II: This type is made of more loosely packed fibres and is found in elastic cartilage, which cushions joints.
- Type III: This type supports the structure of muscles, organs, and arteries.
- Type IV: This type helps with filtration and is found in layers of your skin.
As you age, your body produces less and lower-quality collagen.
What is collagen made of
Collagen is a protein made from amino acids, specifically glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine. Collagen peptide supplements are typically derived from bovine connective tissue or fish. Marine collagen is type 1 and the overall best preformed for general health and skin rejuvenation.
How much collagen can you take?
Oligen™ collagen is fast to metabolise because of its molecular structure. Oligen suggests a minimum of 5g a day, but for faster results, Oligen suggests up to 20g a day is a safe amount. Because collagen is a protein, any extra will be used by muscles to repair.
How often can you take it?
Collagen has a half-life of 2 days, to continue results constant use is recommended
