Collagen Peptides are highly digestible & bioavailable (degree & rate of absorption). Studies have demonstrated that Collagen is efficiently digested (±90%) and absorbed into the blood stream in form of small peptides within one hour. This rapid absorption ensures an effective delivery of the essential peptides and amino acids to their site of action within the body.
Collagen is a light golden colour powder, high quality fat- and sugar-free source of protein. With a faint, neutral taste with no odor. It is Type I Collagen Peptides that are high purity natural bioactive proteins. Containing 18 key Amino Acids and offers exceptional nutritional properties not found in other protein sources. The Amino Acids in Collagen are identical as found in skin, joints and bones. It is natural with excellent digestibility and no additives or preservatives. When consumed, these Peptides trigger increased collagen production in the body that results in improved gut & joint health, and noticeable results seen on the surface in the form of younger, healthier looking skin, hair & nails. Extensive research has shown the beneficial effects of collagen peptides in preserving joint health and reducing pain by the synthesis of Type II collagen.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the major protein in the connective tissues of the body. It holds all living tissues together ('the glue') and ensures the integrity, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bones.
It is the most abundant protein, representing almost 30% of all human protein content – the building block in our vascular & digestive system, skin, tendons, cartilage & connective tissue and is a critical component of muscle and bone structure. It is naturally produced by the body, but wanes with age. By the age of 25, collagen levels are starting to decrease, and by 60, less than half your body's collagen is left. Bad habits speed up depletion.
What is Hydrolyzed Collagen?
Hydrolyzed Collagen is produced through the process of enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen protein. This process involves the breaking down of the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands using combinations of enzymes.
Collagen protects the eyes against UV-Rays. Lutein selectively accumulates in the retina of the eye, where the incoming UV & Blue light is absorbed.
The collagen is highly digestible & bioavailable. It rapidly delivers specific peptides to connective tissues and stimulating the synthesis of endogenous collagen in skin bones, joints & muscle.
Collagen Peptides have been proven to stimulate cartilage cells synthesis, producing increased collagen. Following ingestion, collagen peptides rapidly accumulate in cartilage and provide a pool of specific Amino-Acids to promote endogenous collagen synthesis in the cartilage cells.
Hair & Nails
Collagen provides the structural foundation for hair & nails. When Collagen Peptides are ingested, the Amino Acids are absorbed and used by hair follicle cells to produce keratin proteins for healthy hair, finger- & toe-nails.
Collagen Peptides increase the density of the deeper skin layers, providing more strength to the skin and increases the skin moisture. Helps fight against the visible signs of skin ageing & improves skin elasticity.
Collagen Peptides can help to maintain the nitrogen balance and preserve lean body mass. Collagen peptide supplementation in combination with resistance training has been shown to improve body composition and increase muscle strength.
Collagen peptides promote bone health by stimulating bone renewal, maintaining bone mineral density, improving bone solidity and strength, thus, prevent bone loss. It is proven to stimulate chondrocytes to produce more Aggrecan and collagen Type 2, promoting healthy joints and reducing the degrading effects of osteoarthritis. Studies have shown that collagen peptides accumulate in cartilage following ingestion. The presence of specific collagen peptides may promote endogenous collagen synthesis in the cartilage cells. Also slow down cartilage degeneration.
Sun Collagen Gold Contains
(Unique to SUN Collagen Gold ) that protects the eye’s retina from UV-Rays and Blue Light. Lutein is an antioxidant which supports the human body in its defense against oxidative stress.
Maritime Pine Bark Extract
(Unique to SUN Collagen Gold) gives UV Ray photoprotection for human facial skin and it reduces hyperpigmentation while improving the epidermal skin barrier function.
Vitamin C (buffered)
Is a co-factor which supports the production of collagen in the body. Buffered Vitamin C is easier on the stomach for individuals with a sensitive or compromised digestive system.
Increases mitochondrial function and reduces inflammation; it can help lower oxidative damage, promote exercise capacity and decrease fatigue.
Its functional benefits support an active, heathy lifestyle, without the worry of gastric discomfort. Replacing calories, providing an increased feeling of satiety and attenuating(reducing) blood glucose. Promoting regularity & digestive health with a Prebiotic effect; furthermore, promotes the mineral absorption of Ca, Mg, Fe & Zn.
Reduce the release of molecules associated with inflammation (anti-inflammatory effect), and boost levels of the powerful antioxidant glutathione. MSM can naturally speed muscle recovery after intense exercise by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. MSM may improve skin health by strengthening keratin and reducing inflammation.
How to replenish with Collagen
It is recommended to consume 14 grams Collagen peptides on a daily basis = 2 levelled scoops.
SUN Collagen Gold Peptides dissolves easily, making it ideal for mixing into almost any regularly consumed food or beverages.
If you have a medical condition or are pregnant, please consult your medical doctor or Health care Professional.
Collagen Peptides are bioactive proteins promoting muscle regeneration. Muscle restoration after exercise, aiding muscular contraction, improving athlete performance, reducing joint pain.
Providing a high satiety effect, Collagen Peptides are an excellent protein source to control moderate cravings – weight management.
Hydrolyzed collagen is a key element in skin renewal treatments (Laser, Peels, Microneedling, etc.). It contributes to skin restoration due to the amino acids and peptides that are available for the fibroblasts to rebuild the skin’s collagen.
