Collagen is the fibrous protein component of skin, cartilage, bone and connective tissue. With age, our collagen begins to weaken and become less pliant. The result is dry, wrinkled skin.
Studies have shown that adequate collagen production can also help support strong coronary arteries, cartilage and bones, as well as improve the function of the organs, which are cemented by collagen fibers.
For the optimal production of collagen in the body, a continuous supply of vitamin C and the amino acids lysine and proline is required. Vitamin C and lysine are not produced in the body, so dietary supplementation with these collagen-building nutrients is essential to help keep your skin healthy and beautiful.*
Dr. Rath Healthy Collagen Synergy Formula has been developed from the ProLysinC formula.
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, L-lysine, and L-proline.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals. Unlike animals, humans do not produce vitamin C, so proper supplementation is vital for the health of connective tissue.
L-lysine: An essential amino acid, is a building block of collagen. L-lysine helps maintain healthy connective tissue. L-lysine is not produced in the body and supplementation is necessary to help protect support of the body's connective tissue.
L-proline: Another amino acid, is a building block of collagen that also strengthens the body's connective tissue. This nutrient is produced by the body in limited quantities, so additional supplementation is important to ensure the optimal production of collagen.
