Collagen with vitamin C.
Collagen Powder from Healthwell contains collagen and vitamin C which helps maintain normal skin, cartilage and bone structure. Collagen is found in all our supporting tissues and is sometimes called the body's glue. Most of our collagen is found in the skin - in fact, 70% of it consists of collagen. There it contributes to structure, stability and keeps the skin hydrated. So it is no wonder that collagen today is popular to use in so-called beauty supplements. Collagen is actually a protein that the body itself can produce, but with increasing age this production decreases. The amount and quality of collagen in the skin can also be affected by external factors such as sunlight, smoking and declining estrogen levels.

Where is collagen naturally found?
Because collagen is a protein, it is found naturally in foods such as meat and offal. Fish scales are also rich in collagen. Vitamin C is important for the body to be able to produce collagen, which is the reason why Collagen Powder from Healthwell contains this vitamin. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant that protects the cells in the skin from being broken down prematurely.
The collagen powder in this dietary supplement is a form of collagen called hydrolyzed collagen or peptide-collagen. This means that the protein is broken down into smaller parts, which makes it easier for the body to absorb. The structure of the hydrolysed collagen allows 95% to be taken up within 12 hours. The molecular weight of the collagen is 2000 daltons, a measure that shows that the molecule is small enough to be absorbed by the body in an efficient way. The advantages of collagen in powder form are that it can be easily mixed with other powder supplements and it is easy to dose. For those who have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets, a powder supplement may be a better option. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a collagen supplement in capsules, we have the Collagen Plus.
