Collagen is the most abundant fibrous protein in the human body. Collagen is made by specialized cells in the skin, ligaments, bones, and cartilage. Collagen is the glue that holds the body together. Between 25% and 35% of all protein in the body is made up of collagen and up to 70% of the proteins in the connective tissues are composed of collagen.
Dr. Friedlander’s Collagen Peptide is enzymatically broken down to a very low molecular weight that is easily assimilated and absorbed in the intestines without the further requirement of digestive enzymes in the body.
Dr. Friedlander’s Collagen Peptide (plain) has naturally occurring amino acids that are high in glycine, alanine, proline, and lysine. Plain collagen is ideal for the person who needs to take extra collagen due to inflammation which has led to excessive wear and tear of cartilage, joints and/or musculoskeletal injuries. Please see the list below for long-term effects of collagen.
Dr. Friedlander’s Amino Acid Collagen has the following additional amino acids:
Taurine – an antioxidant which offers a protective mechanism that supports the heart, liver, and brain and energy function as well as endurance. Protects against glycation. Supports detoxification.
L-carnitine – supports energy metabolism.
Glycine – supports inflammation, insomnia and wound healing. Supports detoxification.
Long-term effects of collagen help support the following:
- repair of musculoskeletal injuries
- connective tissue
- improved joint flexibility
- increases bone density
- reduced pain
- immune function
- supports vascular function
- reduced inflammation
- improved hydration of connective tissues of the body
- improved signal induction
- improved sleep
- extracellular matrix which supports the transportation of nutrients across the cell membrane
- protects the cell against toxins (environmental, bacteria, virus)
- cell communication
- calcium uptake
- increased metabolic rate
- fine lines and wrinkles
Collagen supports sleep and restores, repairs and regenerates. It is ideal to take before bed.
Recommended dosage: Suggested dosage 2-3 tablespoons twice a day in liquid or food (such as soup, yogurt). Taken on an empty stomach works more for joint inflammation. Taken with meals, Dr. BErnd Friedlander’s collagen supports digestion, balances gastrointestinal inflammation by decreasing the inflammatory response in the gastrointestinal tract.
What is the difference between the collagen/plain and collagen/amino acid?
Collagen/plain – joint, muscular skeletal inflammation. cartilage, connective tissue, ligaments, tendons. Suggested intake (3 rounded T 2x day) Dosage can be increased if desired.
Collagen/amino acid – supports brain, liver and gastrointestinal function
Athletes and Body Builders – supports muscle growth and metabolism.
Antiaging – provides positive nitrogen balance, which is important in the nutritional support of age-related degeneration like collagen and cartilage damage. It is an excellent food product for individuals with a sedentary lifestyle.
Inflammation – helpful nutritional support for individuals predisposed to repetitive joint injury, pain and muscle discomfort.
Musculoskeletal injuries – helps supply nutritional materials for cell repair.
Skin tone – by providing critical nutrients it helps support skin strength and texture. Healthy skin retains moisture better and is more elastic and less prone to develop fine lines and wrinkles.
Hair condition – provides nutritional support for hair.
Nail strength – provides building blocks for nails.
Muscle tone and strength – are supported through enhanced anaerobic metabolism.
Tissue hydration – is supported.
