What is collagen?
Collagen is somewhat of a buzzword at the moment, but this protein is vital for humans. It is the most abundant protein in our bodies and the most plentiful substance after water. It is found throughout the body, from cornea and teeth, to blood vessels and the gut lining.
Why Phyto Pro Collagen Booster?
Traditionally, collagen supplements have been made from either bovine or marine sources, this not only makes them unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans, but they also contain whole collagen. Our bodies can’t absorb collagen whole, it has to break it down into its constituent parts, and then use the amino acids wherever they are needed. This is where Phyto Pro Collagen Booster differs from other collagen supplements. Instead of delivering whole collagen molecules, it provides the body with the actual building blocks it needs, in easy-to- absorb formats, to produce its own collagen from your regular diet, without the need for animal-derived ingredients.
If it doesn’t contain collagen, what is it made of?
The key to producing new collagen is providing all the co-factors your body needs. The Phyto Pro Collagen Booster contains concentrated, clean and ethically sourced forms of these co-factors, along with key concentrated amino acids to maximise collagen synthesis.
The formula is 100 percent vegan and contains no artificial colours or flavours, dairy, fillers, gluten, GMOs, preservatives, processed sugar and soy. It is also kosher and Halaal certified.
• Amino acid complex
Glycine and Proline.
These are the two main components of collagen, making up 50% of all new fibres, from clean, plant-based sources. – Serine, Lysine and Glutamine. These are the precursors and activators necessary to build new fibres, protect from UV radiation and strengthen existing cells and tissues.
• Co-factor complex
Vitamin C (Organic Baobab Powder, Ascorbic Acid) and Zinc. The main co-factors that boost collagen production, protect against damage from sun exposure and help to heal existing collagen fibres.
Vitamins B6 and B7. These vitamins act as antioxidants and the “cement” between amino acids.
• Antioxidant complex
Co-Enzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Opti-MSM.
Have been included to reduce inflammation, slow down age-related damage, and boost production and strength of collagen.
• Orange juice powder
For wholefood vitamin C and flavour.
• Stevia glycosides to add sweetness.
Benefits of Phyto Pro Collagen Booster
Collagen production tends to slow down as we age, which is why our joints hurt, our vision deteriorates and our skin wrinkles. Taking Phyto Pro Collagen Booster will help your body produce the collagen it needs to keep your skin resilient and your cartilage and connective tissue strong and flexible. Your body is a very clever organism, and will send the collagen to where it is needed most. There are 3 types of collagen, and each serves a different purpose within the body. The Phyto Pro Collagen Booster helps your body to produce all three types, so every part of the body can benefit.
