collagen helps hold our body together
Collagen is a natural protein that is made up of amino acids – the natural building blocks of our skin. Collagen is found throughout the body – in skin, hair, teeth, muscle, tendon and bone and it helps hold us together.
proto-col uses only hydrolysed collagen which means it has essentially been “pre-digested”, so the digestive system takes less time and energy to break down the protein and therefore it gets absorbed into the bloodstream very quickly. As we get older our body tends to produce less collagen causing loss of skin elasticity and reduced joint mobility. By the age of 45 our collagen level has decreased by about 30 percent. proto-col use bovine collagen as it is so similar to human collagen and many people in the beauty industry have embraced its use to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Proto-col, has helped to reduce this, and now only have slight grinding in my right knee.( I put this down to age). I feel more energised when taking these capsules, and certainly notice the difference when I haven't taken any.
I have recently started to exercise in a women's boot camp, to lose weight, and take more capsules to help relieve aching muscles. It does work. (Posted on 20/04/2015)

Questions & Answers
Q. What are the side effects of taking collagen?
A. Side effects of collagen supplements may also include risk of hypercalcemia. This may be the case if the tablets contain marine sources, such as shellfish or shark cartilage, which usually also contain high amounts of calcium. Symptoms of calcium overdose include chronic fatigue, nausea, and abnormal heart rhythms.
This is not the case with proto-col collagen for our collagen (verisol b – beauty & fortigel – Sport) is derived from a bovine source. The reason why we have chosen this source of collagen is because the results achieved have proven scientific evidence.

Q. Is it safe to take collagen supplements?
A. Research confirms that supplementing with collagen is a safe and effective way to improve the health of skin and joints. The World health organisation have stated that taking a larger dose of collagen hydrolysate is safe to take.
Q. Do collagen pills really work?
The simple answer is yes. The best way to help the body produce collagen, needed to repair cartilage, joints and other connective tissues, and to have metabolically active lean tissue, is to take a collagen supplement. Verisol B is now (2015) clinically proven to stimulate collagen type I (procollagen I / ) production by some 65%. Eating a healthy diet, with adequate protein can help but it doesn’t compare to the intake of a high-grade collagen supplement. Taking vitamin C also helps the body produce collagen in connective tissue.
Q. Can collagen help you lose weight?
A. Collagen can help you lose weight, but it won't do all of the work for you. Collagen is great for providing you just the right tools to act alongside your diet and exercise program. Adding collagen into your diet can help to decrease your food intake, beat cravings, and prevent pain which can result from physical activity. In order to achieve weight loss, it must be used in conjunction with an exercise program to create lean muscle mass. This is not bulky or large muscles, but more lean dense muscles.
