Why is it necessary to supplement with collagen?
Genacol® can slow down the aging process by providing the body with sufficient collagen to repair the body and thus leading to less degeneration as the body ages.
Collagen is naturally produced by the body, but begins to decrease from around the age of 25. This decrease in production accelerates between the ages of forty and fifty with many studies showing that normal collagen production can diminish at a rate of 1% per year after the age of forty. Therefore, by the age of fifty, the body has lost more than 15% of its capacity to make collagen. By the age of seventy, this is more than 30%. This process can be slowed by commencing collagen supplementation from the age of 25 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Further to this, there are many elements that can harm and reduce our body's collagen production. These range from smoking, drinking alcohol on a regular basis, coffee, intensive stress and excessive physical training, infections, pollution and bad climatic conditions, medication and drugs.
The body's use of collagen cannot be emphasised enough here, as it makes up the body's joints, muscles, hair, skin, tendons, and ligaments. It constitutes most of the body's structural support and is the primary substance of all connective tissue. It is this fibrous tissue that holds the body together.
Collagen fibres are woven together like pieces of fabric to form a network in which new cells grow and reproduce. Any time the body needs to build new cells, such as in the healing or growing process, or rebuild damaged cells, collagen plays the central role.
Hence as we age and our collagen production slows, deterioration of various body parts gradually follows. The first signs are wrinkling of the skin and the beginning of unexplained joint pain. Those wrinkles and joint pains only are a part of the result.
Genacol® works fom the inside out and since health begins inside the body, the secret of a young and healthy appearance is to act on the source of the degeneracy before it settles down. By supplementing with Genacol® you are able to slow the aging process and stay younger for a bit longer.top
