why you should try proto-col's pro sports plus collagen tablets
Each collagen tablet contains 1000mg/1 gram of pure collagen hydrolysate. Our collagen is type I and III with an optimised type II grade. Our jar contains 150 tablets with a recommended serving of 3 to 5 tablets per night.
Collagen is the main structural protein of the various connective tissues in all humans and animals. Collagen is also the main component of connective tissue; it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25-35% of the whole-body protein content, which in turn is approximately 30% of total body mass. Depending on your goal i.e. beauty enhancement with the reduction of lines and wrinkles, or connective tissue repair, collagen hydrolysate can play a key role.
There are numerous types of collagen hydrolysate in the marketplace; collagen hydrolysate can be derived from fish (marine), chicken sternum, porcine and bovine. However to date there is no clinical evidence that any collagen other than from a bovine source actually works. This research has been authenticated by the CRI (Collagen Research Institute) which is based in Kiel, Germany and headed by the world’s leading authority on Collagen Hydrolysate research Dr Steffen Oesser.
You also have to take into account the production method and the grade of collagen. This plays a huge factor in whether you will see results for skin or for connective tissue. For tissue repair which incorporates ligaments, tendons, muscles and cartilage you require far larger amounts of collagen than what is required for beauty, where 1.2-2.4 grams per day is proven to be sufficient.
take pro sports plus collagen tablets the right way
When dealing with tissue damage from sports injuries or from the wear and tear of age, which can manifest itself in osteoarthritis or other such age related connective tissue issues, you require approximately 3 to 5 grams of collagen per day. This is best taken at night due to the body’s ability to repair during Alpha sleep (first two hours of the deep sleep cycle). proto-col collagen hydrolysate tablets are the most effective way to deliver such a large dose of collagen at this time of day. If you are an active sportsperson you can also achieve a 5 gram dose through proto-col pro gold sports whey and collagen protein.
proto-col collagen is approved by the CRI and is one of the only brands of collagen hydrolysate on the market with both beauty claims which have been cleared by FSE Food Supplement Europe (see our beauty collagen capsules type I and III) and claims under review by EFSA for our sports collagen capsules and tablets which are type I and III with an optimised type II collagen. This makes our product the most targeted and results-based collagen on the market.
