What is Collagen?

*    Collagen is a glycoprotein containing galactose and glucose.

*    Glycine is one-third of the total amino acid content of collagen, hydroxyproline and proline account for another one-third of the amino acid content of collagen.  Hydroxyproline is exclusive to collagen therefore to estimate collagen, normally hydroxyproline estimation is done.

*    Collagen has intermolecular cross-linkages and, as a result, the collagen fibers have a high tensile strength.  The younger the subject, the lesser the cross-links.

*    As the subject progresses in age, the collagen cross-link concentration increases.

*    Oxidative deamination initiates the cross-linking through lysyl oxidase.

*    Cross-linking of collagen is a progressive process but is not in every muscle.

*    There are about 14 types of collagen. The type I, II and III comprise the bulk.    

Why Collagen?

Let’s 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 1% 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
* Healthy strong hair

Why Encore Collagen Capsules?

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 approximately 80% 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 maintain.

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 promote healthy joints.

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.

How safe is Encore Collagen?

The US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed the GRAS (generally recognised as safe) status for collagen/gelatine.

Our Facilities are FDA registered and practice under strict GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) here in the USA. All product lots must pass a detailed quality control test before distribution.

Are there any side effects of taking Encore Collagen?

Collagen is a food and not a food additive or pharmaceutical drug.  It has a strong safety profile: Extensive studies demonstrate no significant side effects.

What is the source of Encore Collagen?

Encore Collagen derives from chicken sternum (the safest and most effective source). Our chickens are raised in the USA and are hormone free, antibiotics free, plus free range.

In addition our product naturally contains mucopolysaccharides (a fancy name for carbohydrates). These carbohydrates include Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and Hyaluronic Acid which makeup the synovial fluid and sugar aminos required to make collagen type II cells. Typically our formulation contains 65-70% of Collagen Type II and naturally accruing 25-30% of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and Hyaluronic Acid.

As you may already know, these 3 elements are well known for joint support and helps us win the battle against joint pain. Only Encore Collagen can deliver this necessary protein to the body’s resource center and is guaranteed to contain The Highest Quality Pure Type II Collagen Protein. Your body deserves only the best so don't be fooled by other products on the market as they are not the purest form.
