Collagen and Hair Care
Collagen is a protein and most people associate collagen with
skin. While it is true that collagen is the support structure for
skin, giving skin its resilience. Collagen is a very important protein
for our whole body including our hair.
Collagen is one of the proteins found in most connective tissues,
including cartilage, bone, and skin. Collagen is a protein that
makes up about 30 percent of our body. Collagen is unique among
body proteins because it is the single-most important protein of
connective tissue. Collagen is very important to the body repair
process. As a matter of fact, collagen is the material that holds
your body together. Next to water, collagen is the most important
structural substance in our bodies, accounting for 25-30% of its
total protein. Your ligaments, tendons, bones and skeletal muscles
are all held together by collagen, as well as the smooth muscle
tissue like your blood vessels, digestive tract and organs. It is
even the main component of your hair, skin, and nails.
As we age, our body loses its ability to make collagen, thus,
it starts to break down. It is thought that from the age of 25,
your body loses collagen at a rate of 1.5% per year, so by the age
of 35, your body will have lost 15% and by 45, 30%. This is why
our skin sags and wrinkles; hair becomes thinner, dull, or lifeless;
our joints are stiffer and less flexible; and we have softer, less
Supplementing with collagen protein is believed to provide the
body with the amino acids necessary to manufacture and support collagen.

collagen that it needs to keep your skin, hair, nails, tissue and
joints healthy and young.
In the case of hair care, when you restore lost collagen to the
hair shaft you are able to improve hair growth by up to 36%. Col-pure
collagen supplement strengthens hair and increases the diameter
of individual hairs. This is very important for hair loss and thinning
hair because the increased diameter of the individual hairs give
and overall fuller hair appearance.

Col-Pure offers other anti-aging benefits: improved skin elasticity,
improved mobility in conditions such as arthritis, and the replenishment

While the collagen protein itself does not burn fat, it places
the body's metabolism in an optimal state to do so. When taken at
bedtime, it is extremely effective during the first phase of sleep
in which the body is in a natural state of repair, building and
healing muscle tissue. Collagen's specific amino acids help to preserve
and build lean muscle. Since muscle helps to regulate and increase
the metabolism, fat can then be burned as energy to help support
this bodily repair process.
When used as part of a total weight management program that includes
healthy eating and exercise, collagen protein can be a very effective
tool in the fat loss and body toning process.
Body Shaping Potential ...
As we age, our bodies lose their muscle content and gain fat, so
the muscle-to-fat ratio is lower than in youth. Collagen protein's
muscle sparing and supporting capacity also make it highly effective
in helping the body to regain its shape and tone. Users typically
notice a reduction of fat in inches (not muscle or water weight
as with other weight loss products) and a firmer, more toned body.
