How Core Collagyn Works
The primary source of protein in our body is from collagen found in the connective and fibrous tissues. Collagen is integral in connecting parts of the body including tendons, ligaments, skin, bone, and cartilage. 1,2 Collagen is an amino acid built from peptide chains and is a concentrated source of proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline. 3,4
Core Collagyn contains Fortigel®, Fortibone®, Tendoforte®, and Verisol® collagen peptides to promote vibrant skin and nails while also supporting healthy joints, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Fortigel® promotes joint health. Fortibone® promotes bone health. Tendoforte® promotes healthy ligaments and tendons. Verisol® supports skin and nail health.
Healthy Skin and Nails
Collagen production decreases as we age resulting in dry skin and brittle nails. 5,6,7 Collagen peptides such as Verisol® may help support elasticity and hydration of the structural components of skin and nails. 5,6,7,8 Clinical studies demonstrate oral supplementation with collagen helps promote healthy skin and nails by stimulating natural collagen production processes along with other proteins in the body. 9,10,11
Healthy joints are protected by cartilage. Collagen supports the integrity of cartilage, but unfortunately collagen production decreases as we age. 12 Dietary sources of collagen such as Fortigel® may help support this symbiotic relationship. 13,14 Clinical studies demonstrate supplemental collagen’s ability to help promote healthy cartilage production and support healthy joints. 13,14
Healthy Bones, Ligaments, and Tendons
Healthy bones, ligaments, and tendons are the result of healthy collagen in the skeletal system. Collagen in the bones, ligaments, and tendons supports flexibility, elasticity, and mobility. 15,16 Dietary sources of collagen such as Fortibone® and Tendoforte® may help promote healthy bones, ligaments, and tendons. Clinical studies demonstrate supplemental collagen’s ability to help promote healthy bone collagen matrix. 15,16
