Collagen

The Key to Becoming Healthy, Strong, and Attractive for a Lifetime

You may already know that 70% of your body weight is water, which is essential for your connective tissue hydration and the ability to keep your body mobile and healthy. But did you also know that proteins are also a big part of your body composition? They have an important role to play by providing structure and function to your heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and of course skin, bones, and the rest of your connective tissue.

What is Collagen?

With a presence of approximately 30%, collagen is the most frequently found protein in the body and a very significant component of your connective tissue, playing a main role as a building block of your bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and everything surrounding it. Collagen is stabilizing and it gives elasticity to your connective tissue!

Collagen architecture is the key to fascia functionality, which is an important part of your connective tissue health. Collagen density and architectural patterns are deciding factors in tissue stability and elasticity. Collagen is an active force transmitter and has amazing tensile strength—scientists like to compare it to a steel cable. These qualities can make your movement more energy conservative rather than energy consuming and improve your overall performance!

Collagen is rich in arginine and glycine, both known to be important for the synthesis of creatine. Even though there are 28 different types of collagen currently known, the human body mainly consists of collagen types I, II, and III:

  • Type I Collagen: Accounts for about 90% of the body’s total collagen content, mainly in the connective tissue of the skin, bones and tendons.
  • Type III Collagen: Found in skin and muscles.

Types I & III are the types of collagen present in Resync Collagen Blend.

What are collagen peptides and why are they beneficial?

Collagen peptides are smaller pieces of collagen that are safe and allergen free. More specifically, hydrolyzed collagen peptides (broken down collagen) are made for better absorption for people interested in strengthening their body via collagen peptide supplements. When collagen goes through hydrolysis (breakdown through water) it becomes much more bioavailable and is more easily absorbed by your body. Fast digestion and rapid absorption can only enhance muscle and connective tissue regeneration.

If collagen is already in my body, why should I be taking collagen peptide supplements?

With age, you lose your mobility and range of motion: our metabolic processes become less efficient and the natural collagen production in our body slows down. Clinical studies show that we lose 1.5% of our body’s store of collagen every year after the age of 25. And by the time we get to 45 we have lost approximately 30% of our store. When collagen is lost, the functional characteristics of your tissue are lost e.g. skin loses elasticity leading to less pliability and wrinkles, epidermal thinning, dryness, bruising and impaired healing. On top of natural aging, daily activity and repetitive movements can place a burden on your connective tissue as well.

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides from Resync provide an avenue for regenerating that lost collagen and supporting your body strength and recovery.

Resync Collagen and Lifestyle

Since we do not eat enough of the right food that can contribute to collagen synthesis and often we do not realize that other things present in our diet can actually degenerate the quality of our joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, skin and hair condition as well, we need proteins for a balanced diet and there are special proteins with added benefits. Hydrolyzed collagen peptides belong to the second category, and they are indispensable for optimal stimulation of the cells.

You should take into consideration taking product like Resync Collagen Blend to support your performance and connective tissue health, and close the gap between your joints being “tired” and ready to go. Recent research shows that one of our major fears associated with age, is loss of energy and mobility, often times resulting in loss of independence and joy in life.

Resync products address both of these challenges. Our products consist of the effective amount of hydrolyzed collagen peptides and nitric oxide precursors with antioxidants, plus additional valuable ingredients to support your connective tissue system. You can increase your quality of life, live in good health, and focus on what matters to you.

Additional Tips for Healthy Collagen Formation:

  • Consume adequate amounts of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins daily–energy suppliers.
  • Ensure important amino acids are available to you on a daily basis.
  • Ingest sufficient vitamins B6, C, D, and calcium.
  • Combat inflammation with omega-3 fatty acids –they contain anti-inflammatory micronutrients.
  • Sign up for our email list to gain more data on how to eat to decrease inflammation in your body.
  • Exercising regularly is important for healthy collagen formation, however, excessive training without sufficient regeneration is likely to lead to not only a reduction of collagen, but further damage to your connective tissue.
