The First Product To Be Launched Of The 4 New Supplements!
Life expectancy in industrialized nations is increasing year by year. Statistically speaking, a 65-year-old man still has 17 years ahead of him; a woman of the same age still has 22 years. As a common saying goes: “Everyone wants to grow old, but no one wants to be old.” One of the biggest fears relating to old age is the loss of mobility, often times resulting in loss of independence. In addition to living longer, we want to live longer in good health, and with a high quality of life. No question, at some point, most of us will have to live with certain signs of aging. However, when they occur and how strongly they really affect us is something that can be influenced.
What Is SUPERPRO?
SUPERPRO is a collagen peptide complex. What separates SUPERPRO from other collagen proteins is…. Collagen is a larger cell and can take some time for the body to absorb it but the real issue is that your body will use it wherever it needs, not always sending it to the muscle. Our body is full of collagen, different areas of the body, have different collagen cell sizes. SUPERPRO have a range of different collagen cell sizes for muscle, skin, joint cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Due to the collagen being cut down to exact cell sizes, this helps the body absorb the collagen a lot quicker and because it is already in the right cell sizes, the body knows exactly where it needs to go.
Each individual ingredient (collagen cells) has been clinically proven to decrease wrinkles within the skin (giving you that young firm look), regenerating joint cartilage, improving strength and structure of ligaments and tendons, 3x more muscle growth, power and strength than whey protein and more health benefits that will be explained further on.
Basically studies showed that these individual ingredients give you a higher quality of life and clinically proven to slow down the effects of aging…so we decided to put all of these ingredients (collagen cells) into one product to do exactly that and as far as we know, no one else has yet to do so.
How Bioactive Collagen Peptides Can Improve Quality Of Life.
We can Create the essential conditions to healthy living so that health disorders and restrictions strike as late as possible and possibly a milder form, as a result we can increase our life expectancy while also increasing our quality of life with greater activity and mobility. when you’re young, the metabolism runs at full speed, all body cells constantly renew themselves. As we grow old, processes in our body changes the metabolism slows down, body tissues are no longer reproduced at a required level.
Cartilage tissue wears out, bones become weak, blood vessels calcify and stiffen, blood flow decreases,skin loses ability to store moisture. the aging process cannot be stopped or reversed (yet). Aging is not a disease but causes restrictions but we can significantly improve the quality of life. In a natural way but how, why? Every body is different so depending on lifestyle and diet choices, depends on how your body will age.
30% of the human body is collagen. manly found in protein and the most important component of connective tissue. It’s also the central building blocks ofthe bones, joint cartilage, ligaments, tendons, fascia and other tissues and structures. It’s almost present everywhere in the body, forming and connecting moving parts (bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments). Collagen also provides structure and tension in the tissue and fascia.surrounding the tissue together with water, it erects barriers that divide the body into its various compartments, ensuring their function.
Collagen has enormous tensile strength, stronger than steel cable of the same thickness. This is why collagen can withstand tremendous loads. The skin is particularly important: It is used in the construction of a protective outer coating from the outside world, shielding us from harmful influences and from drying out. The intestinal wall is the inner counterpart to the outer skin. It protects us on the inside, but allows nutrients and other important food constituents to pass through, and be absorbed by, the body. Collagen is an essential component of all tissues and lends them functionality and stability.
Our body produces collagen. Proteins are constantly being synthesized and degraded, 400g of degraded proteins are replaced by new protein, everyday. With aging, the metabolic process slows down, the production shrinks 1.5% every year.
Types Of Collagen
28 types of collagen are known, the body manly consists of type 1,2 and 3.
TYPE 1 - 90% of the body’s total collagen, manly connective tissue of skin, bones and tendons.
TYPE 2 - joint cartilage.
TYPE 3 - Skin and Muscles.
*As people age, the ratio of the different types of collagen in the tissue, particularly in the skin, changes . In newborns, for example, the ratio between type I and type III collagen is still almost balanced. Over the years, this ratio changes more and more in favor of type I collagen, and the concentration of type III collagen decreases significantly. Overall, the amount of all collagen fibers declines considerably in mature skin causing it to become thin and wrinkled.
Our body is constantly breaking down old tissue and building new tissue to keep us young. With age it slows down but doesn’t stop. When out body breaks down collagen, long chains are disassembled by enzymes for removal, which then the body gets a signal to start rebuilding. A young body reacts quick, as we age this process starts to slow down.
When we consume collagen peptides as a dietary supplement, we ingest just these collagen snippets – but in larger amounts. Our bodies are rapidly digesting and absorbing collagen, mainly in form of the smallest units – single amino acids, but also partially in intact form as collagen peptides (=collagen snippets). These collagen snippets reach the blood stream and distribute throughout the body. Now, the cells in our body, which are responsible for connective tissue / collagen metabolism, notice that there is an imbalance. It is like an alarm, “Attention! There are loads of collagen particles swimming about here – now we really have to get to work and make even more collagen!” As the collagen supplements provide the amino acids (=building blocks for collagen synthesis at the same time), they support the body twofold.
Collagen peptides can be so well absorbed by the body because they are water-soluble, and – unlike other proteins – have a very simple peptide structure, that is very easy for the body to work with. They are “broken down”, with an enzymatic treatment, and can therefore be absorbed more quickly and extensively than undenatured collagen.
Collagen peptides stimulate our body’s own collagen production, the connective tissue metabolism comes to life. Skin for example; it can be shown that other important components of skin structure, such as elastin and proteoglycans, are also produced in greater quantities. The dermis, the second layer of skin, is, so to speak, completely overhauled. At the same time, the degradation of the skin is slowed. In total, more collagen is being built up than broken down. This also happens in cartilage and bone: increased formation, slower degradation.
When taking collagen peptides, our body’s need time to adapt to these processes. overtime it can rebuild joint cartilage and stop wrinkles - collagen peptides do not only affect the symptoms but also address the causes of the problem directly.
Not all collagen peptides are the same. different cells react to different “snippets” of collagen.
There are certain cells in our body that are responsible for collagen formation:
- Chondrocytes: Collagen formation in joint cartilage
- Fibroblasts: Formation and degradation of collagen in the skin, ligaments, and tendons
- Osteoblasts and Osteoclasts: Formation and degradation of collagen in bones
Research, science studies - created a method of cutting the “snippets” out of the long chain of amino acids “to size” precisely the right way further explanation later.
SuperPro has different collagen peptides for your joints, firmer skin, stronger muscles, tendons and ligaments that have been scientifically proven to work, designed with collagen “snippets” that has been formulated for specific purposes.
Overtime collagen production starts to loose its equilibrium with increasing age. More collagen is broken down and less and less is formed. which is why the proteins (collagen snippets) that stimulates the body’s own production process becomes increasingly important.
We need proteins for a balanced diet and there are special proteins with added benefits. collagen peptides are in the second category, they’re indispensable for optimal stimulation of the cells. collagen peptides are pure protein, safe and allergen free. Easily and completely digested. providing amino acids as building blocks, the composition of which corresponds exactly to natural collagen. Natural collagen lacks tryptophan, an essential amino acid. This isn’t necessary in nature for the formation and function of the body’s own collagen. Collagen peptides that are absorbed via the diet, do not require this amino acid either. Collagen peptides are ideally suited to stimulate the formation process of collagen tissues in the body.
Long Term Energy Source
Collagen peptides should not be the only source of protein! This ensures that all necessary amino acids are available to the body in sufficient amounts. Proteins contribute to the body’s energy supply. Collagen peptides contain a high amount of the so called “energy amino acids” proline and glycine, which are converted to glycogen and stored in the muscles as an energy supplier. The process takes time, protein “long term energy providers”.
Collagen peptides free of purines, lactose, gluten and contains no allergens. Although they have a satiating effect, they don’t cause a full feeling or bloat.
How SUPERPRO Produced
Collagen and collagen peptides are produced from mostly skin and bones from pigs and cattle or fish. At the beginning of the production process the collagen is extracted. The natural collagen is dissolved very gently in warm water in a state-of-the-art, rigorously controlled process. This takes place in closed systems under the strictest hygiene conditions. The purity is also impressive: Cutting-edge filtration and analysis methods ensure the highest quality. Incidentally, quality already begins with the selection of the raw materials. After extraction, collagen still consists of very long amino acid chains. In the next step, the collagen is hydrolyzed with the help of enzymes. As if they had been cut with natural scissors, the long chains are broken down and divided into shorter sections so that they can be optimally utilized by the body. Now that the process is complete, the peptides have the optimized length to support bones, joints, muscles or skin. Sounds simple, it’s a highly modern and complex process. No other synthetic components or solvents are used in this process, collagen peptides produced are completely natural.
Amino Acids in SUPERPRO
The Optimal Length & Composition.
The average chain length in the production of collagen peptides, depends on the production process. How the big collagen molecules are ‘cut’ into small peptides pieces. Different chain lengths are each ideal for particular health objectives, to stimulate specific cells in our body involved in connective tissue metabolism. The length of the collagen peptides is typically between 5 to 100 chain links with a corresponding molecular weight of between 500 to 10,000 daltons.
Collagen peptides with a molecular weight of between 2000 - 5000 daltons (Which corresponds to around 20 to 50 chain links) have the highest bioactivity. This length needs to be tweaked even more finely, if you want to make collagen peptides that are targeted specifically at cartilage growth, firmer skin or stronger bones, these collagen peptides can be absorbed and used excellently in the body.
The human body has a variety of amino acids and besides tryptophan - they are all contained in collagen peptides. The body contains 20 amino acids that can form proteins. These are protein forming or proteogenic amino acids and are divided into 3 groups.
The essential amino acids include isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, histidine and valine. These cannot be synthesized by the body itself. Conversely, arginine, glycine, proline, tyrosine, cysteine and glutamine are considered as conditionally essential amino acids. The body can synthesize them in principle, but in certain situations (or conditions, hence “conditionally”) they have to be ingested with food. In this case, the body requires so many of these amino acids that it simply cannot meet the demand through self-production. These conditions may include, for example, intense exercise, stress, recovering from injuries or aging. The body synthesizes five amino acids itself. These non-essential amino acids include alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid and serine.
Quality of protein is very important! Essential amino acids should account 19% of proteins and non essential amino acids should account 81%.
Glycine, which is the smallest in the family – and extremely important. - à Most proteins do not contain much glycine. In collagen, however, it is abundant, usually about 25%. It has a special property: It is soluble in both fat and water, can overcome the blood-brain barrier, and also performs important functions in the brain. It supports our memory capacity, has a positive effect on sleep quality, and helps to regulate the sleep-wake cycle. In addition, it plays a role in the formation of a serotonin precursor. This so-called “happiness hormone” brightens our mood and helps us unwind after stressful days. If you have good serotonin levels, you are satiated more quickly and for longer and less prone to depression. A diet rich in glycine is therefore beneficial in many respects. To achieve an intake of 2.5 grams of glycine, you only have to consume 10 grams of collagen peptides per day.
Impaired collagen formation – the consequences
Serious health problems and functional disorders can occur if collagen formation in the body slows down – not only as a result of age, but also as a result of illness. Ecchymosis (bruising) and internal bleeding can result, the collagenous structures of tendons and ligaments can be destroyed, and serious damage to the blood vessels can occur. There are multiple causes for impaired collagen formation: Anybody who is constantly on a diet and neglects to provide the body with sufficient energy in the form of carbohydrates or stresses the body on an ongoing basis, can suffer from excessive protein deprivation. Another major factor is chronic inflammation. It accelerates the degradation of proteins because the corresponding enzymes are overactive. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in the collagen formation. One of the most important stabilizing components of collagen protein is the amino acid, hydroxyproline. If there is insufficient vitamin C available in the body, hydroxyproline cannot be incorporated adequately. The body also requires sufficient “building blocks” for collagen formation. Vitamins B6, C, and D, as well as calcium are also required in sufficient quantities for these complex processes.
Difference between collagen & collagen peptides
Collagen molecules are very large, which is why the body has difficulty absorbing and using them. Collagen peptides are smaller cut collagen molecules, so our body; in turn, is able to make very good use of them.
Plant protein cannot replace collagen peptides - our body’s are not plant origin. in purely biological terms, we’re “animals”. Collagen peptides from other animals are recognized by our body.
Collagen For The Skin
Your complexion is the fastest aging component in the body, from mid to late 20’s our collagenous connective tissue begins to recede and store less moisture. In our 30’s, wrinkles around our eyes and forehead start to appear. 40’s these get deeper and by 50 our facial contours begin to change. The loses it’s elasticity, which can’t be stopped completely but slowed down.
While you’re young degradation occurs but is built up again but as you age, your body slows down it’s repairs which all of this depends on your gene, habits and diet. which can increase the activity of certain enzymes that break down proteins and destroy the collagen along with it.
Collagen is 80% of skin dry matter and is one of the most important building blocks. Collagen peptides contribute greatly to healthy, tact, youthful skin. reduces wrinkles, gains moisture tones.
Creams don’t work! Studies showed that 80% of participants were very satisfied with the results. Skin becomes firmer.
women have different structure due to being able to stretch for pregnancy, strength is provided by a lattice strength.
Elderly or diabetics suffer from poor wound healing because of the body’s collagen production declines. Our bioactive collagen peptides help with faster wound healing.
SuperPro stimulates hair and fingernails, faster growth and stronger. They don’t consist of collagen but the blood vessels do which supply them the nutrients.
How It Works For Skin
The Bioactive collagen peptides work in two ways.
They stimulate activity of the fibroblasts. Fibroblasts cells build all of the fibres and molecular components pf the connective tissue, giving the skin structure and firmness. Activating the fibroblasts encourages the production of the new collagen structures. This process takes time, after 3 - 6 weeks the skin regains it’s natural tone and improves its moisture storing capacity.
They also provide the skin with the necessary “building blocks” their mode of action is extremely sophisticated -they perfectly resemble the fragments which form when skin collagen degrades. Our body “recognizes” the peptides as degradation products and boosts the body’s own collagen synthesis. The result: thanks to the considerably higher production of natural collagen,the skin can “repair” itself and replace what was lost through age and environmental influences.
Collagen Peptides For Weight Management
Proteins in general and collagen peptides, support weight management. Collagen peptides are easy to digest and are longer lasting energy providers. In combination with exercise and strength training, they also support the build up of muscle mass, which in turn burns significantly more calories than fat.
Studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Collagen Peptides Collagen peptides have been proven to be effective in supporting weight management. Particularly impressive were the results of a study carried out in 1999. Three groups of women each consumed one liquid meal in place of their lunch – one group consumed mainly proteins, another consumed mostly carbohydrates, and the third consumed equal parts of both. In the evening, the women were allowed to eat as they liked. It was interesting to see that the group who consumed mostly carbohydrates for lunch went on to consume roughly 30% more calories than the group who consumed mainly proteins, and still 20% more than the group who consumed equal parts of both. This study demonstrates that collagen peptides, with their high satiation effect, provide ideal support to anybody wanting to lose weight or maintain their weight on a long term basis. In 2008, the University of Maastricht evaluated this hypothesis on the role of collagen for weight management once again. It was confirmed, that collagen and the milk protein alpha-lactalbumin have the potential to increase satiety and decrease the caloric intake compared to other protein sources like casein, soy and whey . Twenty-four healthy men and women between 18–45 years received a breakfast including one of the mentioned protein sources with either 10% or 25% of the daily energy requirement. Three hours after breakfast, they were offered a lunch. Scientists observed the dietary behavior of the participants over three days. They determined the participants’ energy intake and appetite profile, which included hunger, satiety, fullness and the desire to eat. It was observed that collagen and alpha-lactalbumin have a ~40% higher saturation effect than casein, soy and whey. Those participants, who consumed a protein with a higher saturation effect, were less hungry and had a ~20% lower energy intake at lunch than those, who consumed proteins with a lower saturation effect. People, who feel less hungry and therefore consume less, will achieve better results with their weight-loss diet than others. Consequently, these results allow the assumption, that collagen has the potential to play an important role in future weight management concepts
Eat more – keep your weight stable This sounds too good to be true, but it is! It is actually quite simple – muscle burns more energy than fatty tissue. So, if you build muscle mass, you can eat more without gaining weight. Incidentally, muscles don’t only consume energy when we use them, these “combustion engines” continue to run even while we rest or sleep. So, if you love to eat without having to count calories, you should begin building muscle mass. This is particularly important for women because, again, their metabolism works a bit differently. Women need muscles, too Whenever we think of muscle building, we tend to imagine a bodybuilder heaving weights. However, as we have just seen, muscles consume calories. The mass of our muscles and how often we use them, plays a huge role in our metabolism and calorie consumption. Women tend to have a lower muscle mass relative to their total weight than men. So, for them to burn the same amount of calories, they must use their muscles more frequently and train more vigorously. Logical, right? Another disadvantage – calories are converted into adipose tissue much more quickly in women than in men, and where does it tend to get stored? Around the waist and hips! This abdominal fat, however, is not found as a “spare tire” around the middle of the body center, but is also stored in the abdomen surrounding the organs. This visceral fat is actually less of a cosmetic concern than a health crisis because it is a factor that increases the risk for numerous diseases, including cancer. Nevertheless, what typically bothers women is the visible fat. This is what they struggle with most frequently – even with the most diverse of diets, usually without long-term success. Here is the good news, ladies! There is a way to escape the effects of aging, which include weight gain and muscle loss – build up muscle mass! You build up muscle mass with exercise and moderate strength training – and, with the support of collagen peptides!
Proteins are essential for most bodybuilders, and many fitness aficionados also regularly consume protein products. In principle, a sufficient supply of proteins is important since they contain amino acids necessary for building muscle. Here, in particular, whey protein excels with a high proportion of essential amino acids. Those who have an interest in sports-related nutrition are sure to have knowledge BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids). These amino acids, particularly leucine, are known among experts for their effect on muscle building. New scientific studies, however, have clearly shown that collagen peptides also have this positive effect on muscle building. In the world of sports nutrition, this is significant because these findings dispel the decade.
Collagen peptides: Effective and extremely well-tolerated For a long time, the discussion about different types of proteins was limited to the composition of their amino acids. There are numerous proteins that are effective due to their bioactivity, and are by no means classified by their amino acid profile alone – the best examples are enzymes or hormones, like insulin. Scientists have long known that proteins are absorbed in the form of more complex peptides, and have a bioactivity which extends far beyond that of the respective amino acids. In the fitness industry, only now is this information beginning to appear in relevant magazines and portals. It has long been known and scientifically researched, that collagen peptides stimulate the cells that regenerate the collagen in the skin. However, a recent finding is, that this also works with muscle cells. This is significant, because every muscle is connected to the rest of the body by collagen-containing tendons, surrounded by collagen-containing fascia, and divided into compartments by intermuscular collagen tissue and consequently, it is only logical that the effectiveness of collagen peptides in muscle building is also remarkable.
Collagen Peptide Research
Collagen and muscle protein are interwoven, to an extent. Therefore, it stands to reason that these proteins also influence one another. It can be assumed that this is precisely the reason collagen peptides have a comparatively strong effect on muscle development. To investigate this more closely, a number of studies were conducted. One study focused on people suffering from age-related muscle wasting. One group took 15 grams of collagen peptides daily and performed moderate strength training three times per week. The other group received placebo instead of the collagen peptides and only performed the strength training. The group that took 15 grams of collagen peptides daily experienced a significant increase in muscle growth compared to the group that received placebo. What was particularly interesting – the group that took collagen peptides, also saw a decrease in body fat mass, in a similar proportion. Two other studies (submitted for publication) were similarly structured, and also corroborated the positive effects of collagen peptides for the 35- to 65-year-old age group as well as for younger athletes. It is considered an established fact that collagen peptides have a positive effect on the muscles and connective tissue. According to the latest research, the effects are multi-factorial. For example, research showed an increase in the mitochondrial density in the cells. The mitochondria are the so-called “power plants” of the cells that are responsible for converting food to energy. The more mitochondria there are, the higher the metabolic rate and energy consumption of the body – quite simply, more calories are consumed.
Wear & Tear of joints announce their arrival with an initial tweaking in the joints. Which can start out minor and progress to more consistent, permanent pain.
Cartilage – the natural shock absorber. Cartilage is a very important constituent of our joints. It acts as a shock absorber – where two bones meet at the joint, allowing frictionless, smooth movement – while protecting the bones and joints. Since cartilage is not connected to the bloodstream, it receives its nutrients via a different system, the so-called “joint lubricant’ – synovial fluid – acts like a lubricant film and supplies the sponge-like cartilage with nutrients. This works through movement and pressure. Therefore, to supply the cartilage adequately, exercise is absolutely essential.
Once we feel pain, we tend to avoid exercise, which, in turn creates a vicious cycle. When the musculoskeletal system is used less and less, degeneration proceeds ever more rapidly. Through the lack of exercise, the cartilaginous mass no longer receives adequate liquid, and with it, nutrients. It completely dries out, becomes brittle and wears down all the faster; the pain often becomes unbearable and makes exercise à 51 impossible. The muscular system declines very quickly when used too little. The dreaded sarcopenia – age-related muscular atrophy – accelerates many times over. As a result, strength decreases on top of everything else.
We can build muscle mass with physical activity but time wears mercilessly on our muscles. With advancing age, the dreaded sarcopenia sets in. If we do not take active measures to retain our muscle mass, we lose about one to two percent per year from about 40. By 80 we have lost about 40% to 60% of muscle.
The age related muscular atrophy creeps up on people and usually remains unnoticed due to it not being noticeable symptoms. Activities become difficult with age, people accept this is a normal part of aging. The decline in muscle mass is accompanied by a loss of physical strength, loss of mobility, balance and loss of bone mass accelerates. Also, glucose metabolism also changes and risk of diabetes rises.
One study showed, that the combination of collagen peptides and strength training can effectively counteract the dreaded sarcopenia. 53 male sarcopenia patients performed strength training under supervision for 12 weeks and ingested 15 grams of collagen peptides daily. The result: Significantly better muscle growth, improved muscle strength and greater fat reduction than in the group that only did the training.
With respect to our general health, physical performance, and quality of life – connective tissue is, without a doubt, one of the parts of our body that we underestimate the most. Most of us know that healthy and powerful muscles depend on collagen protein. However, the fact that connective tissue also forms one of the body’s largest collagenous structures is new to many people. Therefore, collagen is a central component of connective and structural tissue, and found everywhere in the body. It gives bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, the skin and even the eyes strength and flexibility. If the collagenous structures are degraded by heavy stress – during sport, for example, or by the normal aging process – the function of all organs and tissues that depend on collagen are impaired. Ligaments and tendons become weaker, muscle mass decreases, and above all, the loss of highly important cartilage tissue at the joints can lead to painful symptoms.
Connective tissue includes the skin, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and joint cartilage, but also the fasciae and blood vessels. Collagen is the main component of connective tissue. Collagenous protein has unique properties since it is extremely flexible and, at the same time, very strong and stable. The Achilles tendon, for example, is the strongest tendon in the body and can absorb stress of up to 1000 kg
The connective tissue literally holds our body together – providing it with structure and stability. Besides the muscle, nerve and epithelial tissue, connective tissue is one of the main tissue types in our body. It is virtually everywhere and takes care of the necessary tension of the tissue. Connective tissue includes ligaments and tendons, which connect the muscles with the bones, but also the fasciae. They contain a great deal of collagen, which is the reason for their extraordinary strength and elasticity. For many sports such as football or baseball connective tissue are the decisive factor, because they act like a bowstring or a catapult. They play an important role wherever a strong tension or force is required. Cartilage and joint cartilage are also classified as connective tissue. They are natural shock absorbers and can be found wherever two bones meet. The cartilage tissue is one of the most critical components of our musculoskeletal system. If these shock absorbers are worn out, the bones rub painfully against each other. Because this topic is so important, we have devoted a separate chapter to it. For now, suffice it to say – regular exercise supplies the cartilage with joint lubrication, and supplies it with nutrients. If you take collagen peptides as nutritional supplements combined with regular exercise, the body will once again form cartilaginous mass. However, this can only work where cartilage is still present. Once the cartilaginous mass has disappeared completely, you can only hope for a successful operation. The connective tissue in the bones is also important – although we know how important calcium is for bone density, it is collagen that keeps this calcium in place in the bone. After all, about twenty percent total bone mass consists of collagen. Our blood vessels are also surrounded by a tissue containing many collagen fibers. Healthy and flexible blood vessels are tremendously important for a healthy cardiovascular function. Our skin is also connective tissue and occupies the largest area of our body. Of course, we all want beautiful-looking skin for a young and fresh appearance, but it also plays a decisive role in our health.
