Why Collagen Protein?

In a sea of protein choices, collagen stands out, claiming not just to be a protein but a whole health booster. But hold on – before we dive in, let's figure out what makes collagen special.

Why collagen is important

Collagen is a major component of the human body. About 30% of our total body protein is collagen.

Collagen is crucial for mobile joints, stable bones, healthy muscles, strong ligaments and tendons, smooth skin, glossy hair and healthy nails. It is one of the primary structural proteins of connective tissues and also abundant in blood vessels, intervertebral discs, the blood-brain barrier, the cornea, dentin and the intestinal wall – a vital component of our whole body.

BODYBALANCE® Collagen Protein

While collagen itself is very high in protein, that is only half the story. BODYBALANCE is made of collagen peptides, which act as an instructor to a specific task, that is, they teach the body to build more lean mass. The protein fraction then goes ahead to build the muscle mass.

When compared to other proteins, BODYBALANCE gives you '2 for the price of 1', combining the peptide teaching the body to build muscle, and the protein itself.

Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®)

Recent investigations have shown that BODYBALANCE® significantly boosts the mTOR pathway, a crucial protein for metabolism. This pathway maintains the balance between protein synthesis and degradation, promoting lean tissue growth.

BODYBALANCE® affects fat metabolism by enhancing the AMPK enzyme, which increases fatty acid metabolism, providing more energy for cells and reducing fat mass. With its unique amino acid composition and high bioavailability, BODYBALANCE® stimulates both fat and muscle metabolisms, ultimately improving body composition.
