THE ESSENTIALS ON COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS
(1) WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen occupies up to 30% of total protein in the body found in the skin, bone, joint, cartilage, blood
vessels, tendons, and teeth.
As we age, around the age of 25, collagen levels start to drop, at about 1.5% every year. Rather alarmingly,
by the age of 45, the collagen levels in your body will have reduced by up to 30%.
(2)NOT ALL COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS ARE CREATED EQUAL.
The quality and absorbability of Collagen supplements vary widely for several reasons. The Physician’s
Desk Reference (a highly respected medical guide for doctors) contains research that proved that
only about 10-20% of the nutrients in vitamins supplements are absorbed into the human body. This
means you may consume a lot of supplements but theymay not be effectively absorbed into the body
The patented process (U.S Patent 4,804,745) of Collagen hydrolysis reduces collagen proteins into
small peptides (Collagen Hydrolysate) to an average molecular weight between 2,000 and 5,000Da,
which has been proven to be able to absorb by the body.
As shown in the charts below, Ultimate Colla-gen is laboratory tested in Korea againstother commercial
Japanese and German collagen in the market; Ultimate Colla-gen has one of the smallest molecule
sizes in the market.
Collagen Average Molecular Weight Analysis (Feb 2012, Korea)
Over 3,000 Da 3,000-1,000 Da 1,000-250 Da Below 250 Da
Ultimate Colla-gen offers nano molecular collagen sized below 1000Da making it easy to be absorbed
by the body.
(3) WHAT ABOUT COLLAGEN HYDROLYSIS - THE PROCESS OF BREAKING COLLAGEN DOWN?
Collagen molecular size can be small but the process of hydrolysis is as important.
Most commercial manufacturers opt to use the least expensiveprocess of heat, HCl acid and other
acids for Collagen hydrolysis. Through this process, the Collagen end product is small in molecular
structure but the heat and acids may have already damaged the core integrity of the Collagen.
The best and most expensive method for hydrolyzing collagen is to use proteolytic enzymes. Without
heat and acids, the biocompatible integrity of the finishedmolecules will be guaranteed.
Ultimate Colla-gen represents an unprecedented advance in Collagen Science presenting Collagen
Hydrolysate, hydrolyzed using proteolytic enzymes in a GMP environment, producing Collagen molecules
structure of below 1,000 Da.
(4) READ THE LABELS.
Independent studies have shown that some supplements actually contain little of the substance it is
supposed to. Somesupplements may contain a lot of fillers, flavours and other ingredients. It is important
to look at supplements’ labels that tell you how much of the supplement is in the sachet.
Each sachet of Ultimate Colla-gen has 5,000mg of pure nano sized premium Collagen Hydrolysate
from fish origin together with 6 other nutrients packed in a 9500mg sachet. Each sachet is 90% nutrient
packed.(5) WHERE IS THE SUPPLEMENT FROM?
The quality of any supplement is as good as the source it is from. Ultimate Colla-gen is produced in a
GMP environment (Good manufacturing practices).
As of June 2007, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued the final rule establishing regulations to
require current good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements. Goodmanufacturing practices
(GMPs) ensure that proper controls are in place for dietary supplements so that they are processed
in a consistent quality manner.
The GMP requirements include quality provisions related to:
• The design and construction of physical plants that facilitate maintenance.
• Cleaning of plants.
• Proper manufacturing operations.
• Proper quality control...
