Collagen MB by Systemic Formulas
Collagen is the predominant form of protein throughout the body. It’s part of connective tissues, bones, cartilage, and supports red blood cells and tissue integrity. With aging, the body’s production of collagen decreases which results in many health issues. Supplementing with collagen boosts the body’s metabolic processes and can help offset the decline in collagen due to aging. Collagen proteins are long chain amino acid structures, particularly rich in glycine, which supports metabolic functions and detoxification. Collagen plays a vital role in joint maintenance and the body’s normal joint health processes. It also is essential for skin elasticity (Collagen Type I) and thus has gained a reputation for skin, hair, and nail normal health and youthfulness. Collagen is particularly beneficial to the skin’s dermis (the deep layer) health, especially for people over age 50. Collagen has the amazing ability to support muscle, bone, and connective tissue in balance with body fat, thus supporting a favorable muscle mass and body composition. Eggshell membranes are powerhouses of nutrients similar to Collagen types I and V. They are rich in glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycans and amino acids—all vital nutrients for joint health and strong connective tissues throughout the body. The availablity of these supportive amino acid chains provides the body the specific molecules it requires to maintain overall integrity of his structure and functionality.
Hyaluronic Acid: Supports the body’s innate collagen synthesis processes, i.e. the body’s inherent youthful cell maintenance processes.
This revolutionary formulation provides speciﬁc muscle and connective tissue collagen peptides rich in BCAA’s, cellular energy building blocks, and medium chain fatty acids for energy and immune support during growth. Validated in several clinical studies, collagen promotes lean muscle mass strength and ﬂexibility. Speciﬁc research found that collagen peptide supplementation, along with resistance training, improve muscle body composition in Sarcopenic men (J. Nutr. 2015; 114). Collagen peptides improve health at the cellular level as they have been shown to interact with the cellular machinery, including NrF-2 and PGC-1alpha transcription factors which govern speciﬁc genes. Speciﬁc amino acids in the formula also inﬂuence muscle building through the mTOR (mechanistic Of Rapamycin) pathway. Cellular energy is critical during any muscle building process, therefore the following natural ingredients were added at clinical levels: Creatine, which recycles Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the main cellular energy molecule; β-alanine which supports muscle re-building; HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) prevents muscle breakdown, thereby supporting muscle building; and ﬁnally an amazing molecule called Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN), an important molecule that mediates the rate-limiting enzyme in NAD+ biosynthesis. NAD+ is inﬁnitely important in mitochondrial health including SIRT1. The resulting formulation delivers balanced muscle tissue support and sustained cellular energy.
Collagen MB is the world’s most potent and complete formula containing:
