Collagen Lychee Genki Ramune Soda
What is Collagen?
Collagen is a natural animal derived protein, essential to human life: 1/3 of total body protein content (2/3 of the skin)
It holds it all together: Skin, bones, muscles, blood vessels, tendons, cartilage, and teeth.
Good News: Exists naturally in our body
Bad News: Decreases with age
“Collagen” is the most abundant protein in our body, comprising about one-third of the total protein
“Collagen peptide” is prepared by decomposing gelatin into smaller particles using proteinase
How much collagen do we need?
Yesterday: As humans consume animal byproducts, they have consumed collagen (gelatin) since ancient times.
Today: Gelatin in the form of collagen peptide, has opened a new frontier in the health, food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.
Increased solubility & absorbability -> High versatility & applicability
Known facts: Human body utilizes between 2,000mg to 5,000mg collagen/day in people above 20 years old. A person must therefore consume at least a similar amount to “break even” Collagen Genki Ramune Soda contains 4,000mg(4gm) of Fish Collagen Peptide!
Benefits of Collagen Peptide
Heart Health: Research indicates that collagen may help reduce the risk of heart related conditions. Collagen peptide helps soften the arteries thus reducing the chances of atherosclerosis – a disease characterized by narrowing of the arteries. Collagen provides structure to your arteries. Without enough collagen, your arteries may become weak and fragile.
Tissue Repair: Collagen essentially works as scaffolding and helps regenerate tired and torn tissues of muscles, bones, tendons, cartilage, and skin. It helps in tendon repairing during forceful and strenuous sports activities.
Skin Health: Collagen helps to promote healthy, radiant skin by nourishing our body. Collagen actually is the nutritional building block required to improve skin structure. 75% of our skin is collagen. It is the key component for supple and radiant healthy skin.
Bone Health: Research has shown that daily intake of collagen peptide helps to restore bone mineral density, support healthy bone metabolism, and help preserve bone health.
Muscle Health: Creatine helps improve muscle mass, build strength, and improve athletic performance. Collagen contains amino acids – arginine and glycine, which are the important building blocks for creatine. Collagen can reverse the aging trend in people diagnosed with sarcopenia, age related muscle loss.
Eye Health: Collagen helps maintain the pigmented layer of the retina and the clear gel that fills the eyeball. Collagen is an amazing nutrient that helps the eyes stay young.
Gut Health: Collagen is linked to reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. Glutamine, one of the amino acids present in collagen is the key amino acid for preventing inflammation of the gut wall and healing leaky gut syndrome.
Hair health: Collagen provides amino acids to produce keratin protein, which promotes hair growth, strength, and elasticity. It also prevents hair thinning associated with aging. Collagen has antioxidant properties that help fight damage to hair follicles.
Nail Health: Ingestion of collagen supports healthy nails. When the body needs more collagen for nail support, nails become brittle. Collagen peptides contain arginine. Arginine delivers nitric oxide to the nail beds. One study discovered that when participants took collagen for 24 weeks, it improved their nail health resulting in lesser breakage by 42% and improved growth rate by 12%.
Joints, Cartilage, and Tendons: Low collagen levels can loosen your cartilage and tendons – meaning your joints can be more easily injured. Tendons are made of collagen fibrils that connect muscle with bone. Excess exercising or awkward movements in sporting activities often results in injuries to the Achilles tendon as well as nearby muscles and can impair sporting performance.
Genki our brand ambassador who is a very energetic footballer and an athlete well knows the importance of quick repair and recovery of injured muscles, tendons, and cartilage. Collagen Ramune is Genki and his teammates’ favourite ‘go to’ drink to rejuvenate and recharge for upcoming football matches.
Immunity: The benefits of collagen are extensive, but how does it fit in with the current health crisis and strengthening our immune system? Ingestion of collagen peptide improves the number of NK cells and T cells and henceforth the immunity of humans. Natural killer(NK) cells and CD8+ CD28+ T lymphocyte cells(T cells) are necessary for the control of viral infections. Additionally, Glutamine is a key amino acid that is needed for a strong immune system, and it also happens to be a key amino acid in collagen. Glutamine plays a role in cellular repair and stimulating immune cells. It helps to speed this process up, meaning faster recovery and stronger cells to protect against illness.
Nutritional role of Collagen: All collagens contain 19 different amino acids, with a particularly high content of hydroxyproline, glycine, and proline. The abundance of hydroxyproline is noteworthy because this amino acid is not found in other proteins. When collagen peptide is ingested, it is partially digested to free amino
acids and partially digested as hydroxyproline (smaller peptides). The amino acids are used as raw materials in collagen synthesis and can also directly stimulate cellular responses. The hydroxyproline peptides stimulate cells in the skin, joints, and bones and in cells activation/suppression.
Brain Health: Collagen being remarkably versatile, non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible qualifies as a high potential biomaterial, in terms of brain repair.
The human brain is the main epicentre of the central nervous system (CNS) and it controls the most vital tasks of the body. Structurally the CNS along with the spinal cord is chiefly made up of thick collagen fibres. Factually, collagen is present in all mammals, both at intracellular and extracellular level. It constitutes 20-30% of all body proteins in humans.
