Collagen I and III Dietary Supplement

Collagen I and III Dietary Supplement
Collagen M.D.
7oz $18.95


Collagen Type I & III together account for 90%
of the collagen present in the dermis with up to
60-80% for Collagen Type I and 15-20% for
Collagen Type III. This collection of fibers is
responsible for maintaining the structure and
resistance of tissues and constitutes a dynamic
network which anchors the skin in the deeper
layers, thereby creating a support base for the
skin. In addition to its architectural properties,
collagen also regulates the activity of fibroblasts,
playing a role in their migration, proliferation and
differentiation, and in their adhesion to various
elements of the extracellular matrix.
Collagen Type I & III are the main components
of hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, muscles, gums,
teeth, bones, blood vessels and eyes.

In 6oz of water or juice, blend 2 scoops of powder (over 35 years old) or 1 scoop (under 35 years old) or as directed by your physician. Use juice containing Vitamin C or take with a Vitamin C supplement for maximum collagen support.
For optimal nutritional benefits, take on an empty stomach and wait 20 minutes before eating
Do not add to milk or other protein dinks/powders as this will decrease the benefits. May be take with other vitamins and minerals.

Collagen Type I & II …6.6g
Collagen Type I and III protein peptides 
derived from 100% pure bovine collagen.

Health Benefits of Rutabagas

All crucifers (brassicas or cole crops) are high in antioxidant and anti-cancer compounds. The anti-cancer properties of these vegetables are so well established that the American Cancer Society recommends that Americans increase their intake of cruciferous vegetables.

Rutabaga’s most significant nutrient comes from vitamin C. One cup contains 53% of the daily recommended value, providing antioxidants and immune system-supporting functions that help protect the cells from free radical damage. Although rutabagas provide only 5% of the iron needed for healthy blood on a daily basis, vitamin C enhances its absorption, while helping to form both collagen and the thyroid hormone thyroxine, which protect cells against damage, encourage wounds to heal, fight infections, and promote healthy bones, teeth, gums, and blood vessels.

Beta-carotene-rich rutabagas are also an excellent source of potassium and manganese (for energy), and a good source of fiber, thiamin, vitamin B6 (helps support the nervous system), calcium (for strong bones), magnesium (helps absorb calcium and combat stress), and phosphorus (helps metabolize proteins and sugars).
