Description: Designs For Health Active Body Collagen
Collagen is the most important and abundant protein in the body, synthesised primarily from the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.
Because collagen is required for connective tissues to maintain flexibility and strength, optimal levels of collagen are required for the body to maintain healthy lean muscle mass and promote muscle growth and strength. It is also required for the structural strength and mobility of bones and joints.
Adequate protein intake is particularly important for active individuals and collagen turnover significantly increases following intense exercise.
Collagen peptides contribute to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass by promoting the synthesis of protein in muscle tissue following exercise, particularly when ingested following the performance of the physical activity.
Collagen levels naturally start to decline from 18 years of age, progressing from DECREASING approximately 1% each year after 40 to 75% by the age of 80.1 Along with the performance of a regular intense physical activity, other factors that can also accelerate the rate of collagen loss including oxidative stress, nutrient deficiencies, alcohol, smoking and hormone fluctuations.
Bioactive Collagen Peptides in Active Body Collagen
The BODYBALANCE Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCPs) in Active Body Collagen are produced using certified technology resulting in specific peptides optimised to provide targeted structural and functional benefits. These BODYBALANCE® BCPs are a rich source of crucial amino acids that are necessary for tissue building and repair whilst also contributing to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and maintenance of bone health. BCPs help to maintain healthy protein synthesis to support the growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass.
