Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body is paramount in maintaining optimal connective
tissue integrity. Collagen production is vital for skin elasticity, hair growth, skin hydration, joint comfort,
cardiovascular health, digestive health, dental health, wound healing, and increased bone density.
Collagen supplementation goes beyond our skin health and has many therapeutic benefits that combat
inflammation and anti aging.
COLLAGEN, HEART HEALTH, STRESS, AND SKIN.
Ultra18’s grass fed collagen peptides contains type I and type III which are vital for optimal health. Collagen
type III are vital for blood vessel elasticity thus optimizing stroke volume (blood flow), and lowered blood
Type I supplementation supports the development of skin, bone, teeth, tendon, ligaments, vascular ligature,
Collagen production declines with age and even more when the body is chronically stressed out. High levels of
cortisol (stress hormones) break down our own collagen and is the mechanisms behind stress related aging
and increased wrinkles.
Increased cortisol breaks down collagen in our blood vessels and this decreases our cardiovascular health and
output. Blood vessels are made of up collagen and increased collagen production is associated with more
elastic blood vessels and cardiovascular output.
EVIDENCE BASED BENEFITS
Hydrolyzed collagen peptides provide the amino acids of collagen synthesis in the dermis via
increased elastin fiber creation (70,72).
Type I supplementation supports the development of skin, bone, teeth, tendon, ligaments,
vascular ligature, and organs (70,71,72).
Collagen type III peptides are vital for blood vessel elasticity thus optimizing stroke volume
(blood flow), lowered blood pressure (72, 70).
