Collagen is a biological macromolecular substance that plays a combined role in animal cells and is the most abundant protein in the human body, accounting for more than 30% of the total body protein. Collagen is one of the most critical raw materials in the biotechnology industry and is the best raw material for a very large demand. Its application areas include raw materials, cosmetics, food industry, research purposes.

Collagen is widely found in animal skin and bones, such as beef tendons, trotters, pigskin, chicken wings, chicken skin, skin and cartilage. Eat more food can be added to a certain extent, collagen, but these ordinary foods in the collagen protein are macromolecules, and can not be directly absorbed by the body, and most of these foods are higher fat content.

Collagen is rich in human needs glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and other amino acids. Collagen is the most important component of the extracellular matrix.

The Effect and Function of Collagen

1, can prevent cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that collagen can lower blood triglycerides and cholesterol, and can increase some of the lack of essential trace elements in the body, so that it is maintained within a relatively normal range, is an ideal weight loss lipid food. In addition, collagen in the body to help discharge aluminum, aluminum in the body to reduce the aggregation is also unique. Aluminum is harmful to the human body, studies have shown that the recent increase in Alzheimer's disease and aluminum intake, while collagen has accelerated the effectiveness of hemoglobin and erythropoiesis, it has improved circulation, coronary heart disease, ischemic encephalopathy beneficial.

2, can be used as a calcium supplement food. Characteristics of Collagen Amino acid hydroxyproline is a carrier for transporting calcium into bone cells in plasma. Bone collagen in bone cells is a binder for hydroxyapatite, which forms the main body of bone with hydroxyapatite. Therefore, as long as adequate intake of collagen, can guarantee the normal body calcium intake, collagen can be made into calcium health food.

3, can be used for special people. The root cause of gynecological diseases from endocrine disorders, collagen can improve the gynecological diseases, and menopausal women need collagen supply to the body, making menopausal women can more easily face all kinds of discomfort.

4, collagen contains a lot of glycine, not only in the human body involved in synthetic collagen, but also the brain cells is a central nervous inhibitory transmitter, to produce calm the central nervous system, anxiety, neurasthenia, etc. have a good The role of collagen protein in the stomach can inhibit the role of protein due to gastric acid coagulation, which is conducive to food digestion, as well as inhibition of gastric acid and gastric juice secretion, can reduce the pain in patients with gastric ulcer, promote gastric ulcer heal.

5, collagen is the body responsible for the immune function of the important function of the amoeba cell cleaning foreign body of the sensor, so the prevention of disease is very helpful. Can improve immune function, inhibit cancer cells, activate cell function, activation of bones, treatment of arthritis and soreness.

6, to prevent skin aging, to wrinkles. With the growth of age, the gradual loss of collagen, which led to support the skin collagen peptide bond and elastic network fracture, the spiral mesh structure was destroyed, the skin tissue is oxidized, atrophy, collapse, the skin will appear dry, Wrinkles, loose inelastic and other aging phenomenon, so women add collagen is a must decline.
