Why take IPS Hydrolysed Collagen daily?

The modern man is busier than ever!

With a significantly increased workload over the past few years, men are playing a bigger role in managing their families and raising young children. To top it all off, they are taking on more responsibility for their own physical health and, of course, their professional life.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen for Men is a “must-have” supplement for any man who wants to keep up with our fast-paced society. Most modern men do not follow a “nose-to-tail” diet as their ancestors did, which included the gelatinous parts of animals, we therefore need to supplement our collagen intake.

Think of IPS Hydrolysed Collagen as your secret weapon – a complex protein consisting of a triple helix of amino acids that forms the structure holding all the body’s cells together. Collagen ensures the integrity, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, bones, joints, and muscles in the human body. IPS Hydrolysed Collagen can be taken on its own or in conjunction with your favourite gym or health supplement. It is perfect for men of all ages who want to keep their physique in optimum condition.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen consists of small peptides produced from gelatinization and subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis of native collagen found in rich collagenic animal tissues.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen helps keep your joints healthy and helps your body relieving joint inflammation. Hydrolysed collagen has an elevated level of tolerance and safety making it suitable for long-term use in bone and joint degenerative diseases and to maintain healthy skin.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen also helps with the formation of collagen in the body, in combination with vitamin C, D and calcium.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen is highly soluble, and not influenced by heat or pH. It is neutral in taste and odour and compatible with other ingredients.

Ideally, IPS Hydrolysed Collagen should be combined with vitamin C, as vitamin C is used in the biosynthesis of collagen. Furthermore, vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help neutralise the free radicals that speed up collagen breakdown.

It is recommended to take a calcium supplement with IPS Hydrolysed collagen as calcium contributes to the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth, supporting the cartilage.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen is the secret weapon that every man needs in his daily routine.

What is collagen?

Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix in the various connective tissues in the body. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content.

Collagen consists of amino acids bound together to form a triple helix of elongated fibril, which is known as a collagen helix. It is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and skin. Hydrolysed collagen is simply collagen that’s been broken down into easily digestible peptides, and in this format, it is better able to be absorbed by the body.
