start with what happens to your body as you age. In your teen’s and
early 20’s there is an abundance of growth hormone and this promotes the
growth of muscles tendons and ligaments, collagen is used as the building
protein for this growth. When we get in to our mid twenties
the growth hormone diminishes and stops and the collagen produced by the
liver is then used to promote healthy muscles and build existing muscles.
However, from about
the age of about 25, the amount of collagen produced by our bodies reduces
at a rate of between 1 to 1½% per year. This means that by the age of 45
you have approximately 25% less of the collagen in your body that is needed for
optimum joint and skin health.
Earlier users have reported when taking
type II collagen capsules the following effects:
||Skin condition and
texture including fine lines,
wrinkles, cellulite and stretch marks
||Healthier joints and a marked decrease in
joint aches and pains
||Hydration of skin
||Strengthening of nails

Why Encore Collagen
Collagen is the glue that holds our
bodies together. It is the most abundant structural protein in the body.
60% of the body is made up of connective tissue and collagen represents
of all connective tissue. 75% of the dermis consists of collagen and it
accounts for 90% of dermal volume.
It is therefore one of
the body’s most vital components. Unfortunately, it is generally
acknowledged that the body loses collagen at a rate of approximately 1.5%
per annum from the age of 25-30 years onwards. A proper collagen balance in
the body is thus highly desirable but is not so easy to achieve and to
Studies show the depletion of collagen
in the skin leads to the formation of wrinkles and the appearance of
ageing. Depletion of collagen in connective tissue – tendons, ligaments,
muscles and cartilage – results in the reduction of support for the joint
structure of the body contributing to poor joint health. Collagen also helps
Collagen is being
injected into the skin to address the problems of facial lines but this
procedure has to be repeated regularly and can be costly. Collagen is also
available in creams and gels but needs the support of a carrier to enable it
to penetrate into the dermis to produce desirable results.
Encore Products’ labs have
perfected the manufacturing process, the end result of
which is a pure Type II collagen formula.
The collagen is
supplied in capsules/pill form not painful costly injections. For best results the capsules should be
consumed last thing at night because the peak period for repair and
regeneration is during the first two hours of sleep – known as the alpha
cycle. The capsules can also be taken before exercise or physical activity. It is a natural substance, is non-toxic and has no known side
effects. It is therefore very safe to use.

and Hyaluronic Acid which makeup the synovial fluid and sugar aminos
required to make collagen type II cells. Typically our formulation contains

Chondroitin, and Hyaluronic Acid.
