Everything you need to know about Collagen

Collagen is one of the central structural components in hair, skin, nails, joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bones, arteries, veins, muscles and the digestive tract. Our bodies produce it naturally and it’s the single most abundant protein we have, making it essential to our overall wellbeing. A steady production of collagen is integral to providing strength and structure for firm skin, healthy hair and strong nails. Its regenerative properties support and enhance the health of our bones, joints, cartlidge, tendons and ligaments. Its reparative properties support gut and vascular health. As we age, the natural production of collagen slows down, bringing with it the unwanted effects of aging. As our natural supply of collagen tapers, the existing collagen structures become weak and disorganised. Introducing and maintaining hydrolysed collagen in your daily diet at any age is enormously beneficial, and supplementing with hydrolysed collagen from as early as your twenties is an excellent preventative measure in helping to maintain your collagen structures before they have a chance to start weakening and breaking down.

How to use

Be Bright’s Collagen is best enjoyed in a cup of tea or coffee, a glass of juice or in your daily smoothie. It is also a great addition to soups, stews and broths. It’s vital to ensure that the collagen powder is completely dissolved, particularly if you are taking it in something cold, like juice. We recommend that you dissolve it in a little bit of warm water before adding it to something cold.

You need to ingest a minimum of 10grams (10 000mg’s) of Be Bright’s pure collagen per day. This amounts to one heaped tablespoon or 3 heaped teaspoons through the course of the day. For optimum results, please use 2 heaped tablespoons per day.


The science

Collagen is a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. The collagen molecules are packed together to form a scaffolding of long, thin fibrils that act as the body’s support structure, and anchors cells to each other. They give the skin strength and elasticity. There are at least 16 types of collagen, but between 80 – 90% belong to types 1, 2, and 3. The different types have different structures and functions within the body. The collagens found in the human body are strong and flexible and Type 1 collagen fibrils are particularly capable of being stretched. Gram-for-gram, they are said to be stronger than steel. Hydrolysed collagen is rich in the amino acids proline, hydroxyproline, glycine, glutamic acid and alanine. These amino acids are what the body uses to build new collagen fibres and repair and restore weakened collagen structures. The consistent daily intake of hydrolysed collagen feeds your body with these amino acids enabling this restorative process to occur.
