Collagen Supplementation

Collagen II Joint Formula by Collagen MD

  • The Body & Type II Collagen
    • Type II Collagen makes up approximately 85-90% of articular cartilage and 50% of all protein in the body’s cartilage.
    • Cartilage is composed of 70% water and a type II collagen structure with proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, comprised primarily of aggrecan and chondroitin which are produced by chondrocytes (cells found in the collagen matrix).  Preteoglycans bind to hyaluronate and stabilise the macromolecule.
    • Chondrocytes obtain nutrition from the synovium by diffusion and the action of joint movement circulating the synovial fluid (lubricating fluid found in joints).
  • Collagen II Joint Formula:
    • Is a doctor formulated, premium collagen supplement that is hightly bioavailable, providing the essential nutrients and protein building blocks needed to support and maintain healthy cartilage and joints.
    • Parallels the amino acid structure of collagen type II in the body and offers almost 100% bioavailability and utilization where the body needs it most.
    • Is a dietary source of 65-70% collagen type II protein and 25-30% glycosominoglycans (GAGs) & mucopolysaccharides (chondroitin, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid).
    • Provides the body with 18 amino acids considered important for cartilage health and maintenance.  The percentage and molecular weight of Type II collagen amino acids are different than those found in collagen Type I & II (Please see below).
    • Provides the health benefits of Manganese and Pomegranate Seed Extract with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and the antioxidant and collagen promoting properties of Vitamin C.
    • Is Gluten Free and Dairy Free
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis:
    • Type II Collagen is the primary protein in cartilage and is essential to joint health and function.
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease caused by the body mounting a response against its own cartilage, composed mainly of collagen, which cushions and lubricates joints.  The chronic inflammation of the joints associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis gradually erodes both cartilage and bone.
    • Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and is a chronic degenerative disorder, of unknown cause, characterisded by a gradual loss of articular cartilage.  According to the World Health Organization, after the age of 50, 10% of men and 18% of women suffer from osteoarthritis.
    • Collagen II Joint Formula contains the natural amino acid building blocks found in the body’s cartilage and provides a natural source of nurtitional support that may be beneficial for maintaining good cartilage and joint health.

Advanced Connective Tissue Formula by Collagen MD

  • Fine Lines, wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity, dry skin, hair, nails and eyes are symptoms commonly associated with aging skin and other connective tissues in the body. On a daily basis, the body repeats a cycle of collagen breakdonw and rebuilding.
  • As we age, the body breaks down collagen faster than it can be replaced.  The natural decrease in cell renewal, combined with the continuous environmental stress that most skin and other connective tissues in the body endures, is a contributing factor to the dull, rough or dry texture associated with aging skin, as well as, other symptoms of dryness the body’s connective tissues may be experiencing (ie: dry eyes, dry hair, etc….)
  • Collagen M.D. Advanced Connective Tissue Formula targets these skin care concerns and helps to maintain the healthy appearance of skin, in addition to, nourishing, lubricating and strengthening other connective tissue structures of the body such as the eyes, bones, blood vessel walls, etc.
  • Collagen M.D. professional grade collagen pepetides are a valuable source of glycine, proline, alanine, and hydroxyproline, the main constituents of collagen.  Replenishing these constituent amino acids is essential for maintaining healthy, smooth skin, strong bones, moist and lubricated eyes, and the elasticity and strength of blood vessel walls.
  • Advanced Connective Tissue Formula:
    • Is a doctor fomulated nutricosmetic dietary supplement that offers a natural and internal approach to skin care and connective tissue health.
    • Offers the right combination of premium collagen peptides, Vitamin C, Biotin, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, as well as, the lubricating and hydration properties of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to provide daily support for healthy skin and connective tissue throughout the body.
    • Collagen Type I & III have been hydrolyzed enzymatically to keep the collagen amino acid ratio at a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability.
    • Advnaced Connective Tissue Formula is neutral in taste and specifically formulated in an easy to use powder form.
    • Can be used in conjunction with the Collagen Type II Joint Formula for maximum supplementation and nourishment of the connective tissues of the body and joints.  Recommended that if taking both supplements, that you take them at separate times of the day.
