COLLAGEN: SPORT AND AGEING
Collagen plays a very important role in the ageing process and the regeneration of the human body, and is one of the main factors in maintaining a youthful appearance, our agility and also our mobility. It is responsible for keeping our joints and soft tissue young, strong, injury-free and pain-free.
Collagen is in continuous regeneration. With age, our metabolism slows down and this, together with the deficit in the production of hormones, causes us to gradually lose the capacity to regenerate it. From the age of 25, 1.5% of collagen is lost per year, so by the age of 50 we have lost almost 40%. When doing sport greater wear is generated in the joints and soft tissue and thus the need for collagen repair is much greater.
As a consequence of this, we age, the skin loses thickness, elasticity, and flaccidity, and wrinkles appear. The healing process worsens, and stiffness appears in the joints, increasing pain, injuries and a decrease in bone density and muscle mass and tone (sarcopenia).
In the practice of sport, the rate of wear of the body structures formed by collagen is greater than its rate of regeneration, affecting joints, muscles, the cardiovascular system and also at an external level. In these cases, the body needs to have easily available the nutrients and co-factors that optimize this repair, based on the synthesis, transport and assimilation of the appropriate, high-quality molecules. Here it is really important, in addition, to have correct transport of nutrients and metabolites.
What do we need to repair our collagen?
- Avoid factors that accelerate this loss of collagen, such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, stress, pollution or oxidative stress.
- To facilitate a correct stimulation of the production of a quality collagen.
- An adequate supply of nutrients (structural amino acids) and the co-factors involved.
- Correct hydration.
RECOMMENDED DAILY DOSE
Take 1 dispenser (20 g) diluted in 1 L of water once a day, or half a dispenser (10 g) in 500 ml of water, twice a day.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS VEGAN COLLAGEN (IN POWDER FORM)
Glycine, L-Lysine, L-Arginine, L-Proline, Methylsulfonylmethane, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine, Calcium, Magnesium, L-Triptophan and Lactobacillus acidophilus.
- The amino acids provided by VEGAN COLLAGEN are rapidly assimilated for optimum product effectiveness.
- The collagen molecule is mainly formed by 3 amino acids: Lysine, Proline and Glycine.
- Glycine is also an amino acid with antioxidant properties and acts as a neurotransmitter in the spinal cord and brain.
- Arginine is another amino acid that decreases its synthesis with age, and is necessary for the secretion of growth hormone, essential for the generation of collagen and other muscle proteins.
- Magnesium favors the synthesis of proteins and correct osteomuscular functioning.
- Vitamin K is responsible for correct coagulation and re-mineralization of the bones. Together with Boron, they prevent atherosclerosis by preventing calcium from being deposited on the artery walls. The probiotic contained in VEGAN COLLAGEN (Lactobacillus acidophilus) provide 50% of our daily requirement of Vitamin K.
- Methylsulfonylmethane is a powerful muscle protector which helps to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. In addition, it is necessary for the initiation of collagen fibre formation (hydroxylation of lysine and proline).

VEGAN REGENERATOR: The secret of Jesús Calleja
If you combine VEGAN COLLAGEN + VEGAN COFACTOR + VEGAN VITA C you will obtain optimal results, thus enhancing its benefits, as Jesús Calleja knows, since he tried it a few months ago, he is a fan of this VEGAN REGENERADOR program.
VEGAN REGENERATOR: The Secret of Jesús Calleja
The 3 products need continued use if they want to maintain the benefits in the body since the aging process is continuous.
- Neuberger, 1952 Collagen regeneration is a continuous process.
- Rath, 1998. Free amino acids of rapid absorption activate the regeneration of bone, cartilage and fibrous tissues as they are the true substrates of collagen synthesis.
- Jackson, 1987. Glycine is an essential amino acid because of its high demand by the body.
