How to have beautiful skin without signs of aging and movement without restrictions? The key to beauty, youthfulness and musculoskeletal health is collagen. It is one of a number of proteins that are abundantly found in the human body. However, an unhealthy lifestyle, stress and toxins from food or the environment deplete the natural reserves of collagen, which affects our appearance, but also the condition of our ligaments and joints or the way we feel.
Collagen can be replenished externally. But why take it in supplements derived from animal sources when our bodies are adapted to produce their own collagen? Sunwarrior offers a plant-based solution specifically designed to encourage the body to produce collagen naturally.
Our beauty and vitality should spring from within – healthy, natural and pure!
Collagen – what is its function in the body?
There are many types of proteins in our body. Collagen is one of the most important and abundantly represented among them. As part of the intercellular mass, collagen fibres make up almost a third of all proteins.
Collagen is the basic building material of all connective tissues. Its quantity affects the condition of bones, joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. It contributes to the elasticity and strength of blood vessel walls. It is collagen that makes the skin beautifully taut, the hair wonderfully elastic and the nails strong.
Our body can make collagen on its own. However, its natural production decreases with age or due to lifestyle factors. A lack of collagen leads to gradual degeneration of tissues, which can manifest itself in musculoskeletal problems or the outward "cosmetic" manifestations of (often premature) ageing.
Therefore, it makes sense to help the natural production of collagen in the body. Supplementing it has a positive effect on ligaments, joints, tendons and cartilage, helping you to enjoy movement again. And, of course, it also benefits natural beauty.
Why collagen peptides?
Amino acids and peptides of plant origin are so-called precursors – substances that our body can convert into its own collagen. Our natural stores of collagen are depleted by exposure to toxic substances found in water, air and food, plus stress or excessive sun exposure. Later on, we lack our own collagen and need to replenish it externally. Sunwarrior has come up with an effective vegan solution that promotes the body’s own collagen production, helps improve musculoskeletal fitness and promotes natural beauty.
Combined with a healthy lifestyle and exercise, Collagen Builder promotes the natural preservation of youthfulness. In addition, its beautifying formula contains a variety of supportive nutrients for enhanced product efficacy such as vitamin C, trace minerals, organic leafy greens, silicon and biotin. The overall effect is further enhanced by the synergy of the hydrating ingredients hyaluronic acid and tremella mushroom extract, which bind water and maintain the moisture and suppleness of the skin.
What is the advantage of a plant-based collagen product?
In conventional dietary supplements, most collagen comes from the bones, skins and connective tissues of animals, including cattle, fish, horses, pigs or rabbits. The difficulty is usually in their digestibility and absorption into the body.Let us explain the mechanism of processing of ingested collagen in the body. When we look at its structure under a microscope, we find that it is inelastic and highly tensile. There are enzymes, called collagenases, which can break collagen into smaller particles. However, these are not normally found in our digestive tract. During enzymatic hydrolysis in the acidic environment of the stomach, collagen is partially broken down, but only into relatively large and less easily absorbed pieces. This reduces the bioavailability and the amount of active collagen components in the target tissue.
In order for the individual valuable components contained in collagen (
