Tanka MULTI Collagen+ is formulated with marine type 1 and 3 hydrolyzed collagen peptides, organic pomegranate seed oil and chamomile oil.
Collagen is one of the most plentiful proteins in the human body. It is a major building block of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is responsible for several biological functions, one of which is to provide structural support in connective tissue, muscle, and skin. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas and teeth. You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
The human body creates collagen naturally, however, over time the production of Collagen slows down. As a result, the skin begins to lose some of its ability to bounce back into shape, a process that many call “elasticity.” As this occurs, wrinkles begin to form. Those who want wrinkle-free skin or other health benefits often look to supplements to increase their Collagen intake.
Collagen supplements in the forms of tablets, capsules, lotions and powders break down in the body digestive system, which drops the bioavailability and absorption rate of the Collagen to less than 10% of the intake.
Tanka's Multi Collagen+ Bracelet sustains greater than 90% bioavailability over a period of 30 days with the bracelet's macromolecular Controlled Release avoiding the first-pass metabolism associated with the digestive system or other intake forms.
Collagen Bracelet's Features
Consumers around the world are becoming more and more aware of the benefits of nutritionally enhanced products, as well as the health impact of the ingredients. Collagen peptides support bone and joint health, promote beauty from within and offer interesting advantages in sports nutrition.
Tanka's Multi Collagen+ mainly contains type I and Type III collagen. The most common collagen in the human body is Type I, which is found in connective tissues (skin, bones and tendons). The presence of Type III collagen strongly depends on age.
As a pure protein source, collagen peptides consist of a unique combination of amino acids profile, which include 8 out of 9 amino acids that are essential to our bodies. Unlike other proteins, collagen peptides are rich in hydroxyproline, which is an important component for collagen proteins. It is also an excellent source of glycine and proline.
