Collagen, What is it? Which Type do you Need?

Have you thought about taking Collagen and if so, why?

It can be confusing trying to find the Collagen Capsules which will best suit your needs.  Some people may not even realise there are different types of collagen!  The question you should be asking yourself is “Why am I taking Collagen in the first place?

Collagen the facts?

Collagen is the primary structural protein found in the body, making up over 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content.  It is abundant throughout the body and is found in connective tissue, bone, all organs and especially skin where it makes up to 90% of the structural protein.

Collagen is the main component of connective tissue.  Collagen, in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendon, ligament and skin, and is also abundant in cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral disc. It is like a superglue, holding us all together. Unfortunately we start to lose it from the age of about 25, and the results of collagen loss start visually, the changing shape of your face, loss of skin elasticity, formation of line and wrinkles, but it’s the internal issues that we really have to worry about.  The loss of strength in ligaments, tendons, cartilage and of course bone, which long term could contribute to Osteoarthritis.

Let’s take a closer look at the three main types of collagen found in the human body.

Type I Collagen

Type I Collagen is the most common type of collagen found in the body.  It’s found in tendons, skin, artery walls, cornea, and the organic part of bones and teeth.  Type I Collagen is good for improving your skin and hair as well as being an overall balanced collagen type.

Type II Collagen

Type II Collagen is found in Hyaline Cartilage and makes up 50% of all cartilage protein.  It’s also found in the Vitreous Humour of the eye.  This collagen gives our body its structural strength and stability.  Although very beneficial the source of type II collagen in an edible form is still restricted to fish collagen, and although available there is no scientific evidence that it can deliver the potential benefits that we require.

Type III Collagen

Type III Collagen is the collagen of granulation tissue and is produced quickly by young fibroblasts before the tougher type I collagen is synthesized.  It’s also found in muscles, artery walls, skin, intestines and the uterus.  This makes us strong, it is the collagen structure in the muscle that is torn during exercise and is responsible for repair of the muscle.

proto-col’s new Bioactive type I & III collagen. The Proto-col range have a variety of Collagen Capsules and tablets available. 

The new bioactive collagen peptide containing type I and III collagen is a triple helix structure and combines the three most repetitious amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.  Collagen type III is a form of granulation tissue, and is produced quickly once stimulated by young fibroblasts before the tougher type I collagen is synthesized.  The new bioactive peptide of this sport collagen has been optimised so that it also covers all the potential benefits of type II collagen without actually being type II in a raw form.

By delivering all three required types of collagen requirements which are naturally found in our body, our “body and joint formulation” becomes a ground breaking new formulation of collagen hydrolysate that can be used both by the elite athlete and the health and well-being enthusiast.

No More Heroes

no more H&B

A sad day for The Health and Beauty Company as James Greenwell announces that he will no  longer be supplying them with any of the Proto-col products that have been available to them and their party planners since Feb 2012. The Health and Beauty Company’s rapid rise was primarily down to the lovely range that James’ company had developed. Their 2 big sellers were Green Magic and collagen capsules, as they captured the market in the health sector. Where I live in the SW corner of Scotland, I couldn’t mention the words “Green Magic” to anybody without being told that they had bought some at a party that their friend had held last night/week/month. It didn’t matter, everybody had heard about it. Last night, 20th November 2013, James Greenwell announced that he was no longer supplying them with his products in a post I saw on the Proto-col page on Facebook. For many Health and Beauty Company Consultants this may be the end of an era. Those that recognise that the Proto-col products were the big sellers will realise that without them, the company could well be doomed.

However all is not lost. For those people who have been introduced to Green Magic and collagen capsules, these will still be available to the public via a “Proto-col professional”. These people are individuals who have a recognised qualification in a Health or Beauty realm, who understand the products that they are promoting. They will be available from Chiropractic clinics, salons, and gyms amongst others to stock these wonderful products. What are you waiting for? Give them a go and see what everybody here in the UK is raving about.

Now Time for Make-up!

If you have been following today’s blogs, you will have already read that I am a newbie (despite being in my maturer years) where skincare and make up goes. I have sensitive skin, so have always shied away from make-up and a beauty regime, but not any more. Now I am confident, because I have found a range that leaves me feeling great, no matter how long I wear it.

First I use a Primer. They call it their “Miracle Base Primer” and that is just what it is! Just a small amount, applied to the face, and is smoothed in. And then you get a “wow” moment, as it goes from feeling like any other primer, to being the silkiest, smoothest thing you have ever put on your skin. You must try it for yourself to feel that silkiness!

With vitamin E to protect and aloe vera to nourish and calm the skin, the miracle base primer is key in your daily skincare routine.

ImageAs a McTimoney Chiropractor I am constantly washing my hands, in between each client This tends to leave them feeling dry, so I like a hand cream that I can use when dealing with my clients. Proto-col handcream is ideal becasue it does not leave my hands all sticky, so I can get to work immediately after applying it. This handcream was developed so that it soaks in straight away, without leaving a greasy film on the skin, making it ideal for those of you who work with  paper, as it does not leave a mark. It is one product of a range all designed to suit all skin types. Many of my clients have skin complaints and often ask me not to use cream or oil on them because of their sensitivities, but they all love this. I have converted many a person who said that they could not use creams, over to the Proto-col range.

This 40 ml size hand cream has been developed in association with Debbi Moore Designs
“Naturally rich in Vitamins A, E & F, proto-col’s nourishing collagen hand cream soothes rough, dry and chapped hands boosting cellular activity and improving skin elasticity. Combining royal jelly, a natural antibacterial agent and a rich source of Vitamin B5, with shea butter and collagen to hydrate and nourish, regenerate and protect, proto-col’s collagen hand cream leaves your hands feeling beautifully soft and supple.
The light formulation absorbs quickly, without leaving a greasy residue, helping to restore the youthful appearence of tired looking skin and nails. Massage proto-col’s collagen hand cream into your skin throughout the day, providing you with fabulously soft, intensely moisturised, younger feeling skin.”
