Valuable information and answers to common questions regarding CYNERGY MED COLLAGEN

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body needed for the structure and density of the skin, joints and bones. Approximately 80% of young and healthy skin is made up of collagen. However, the fibroblast cells responsible for producing collagen slow down collagen production and the number of these cells decrease with natural ageing of the body.

What is the difference between the collagen in the skin and the collagen in the product?

The collagen naturally present in our skin, joints, bones, tendons and ligaments has a high molecular weight (300kDa). If ingested, it is not digested or absorbed. The collagen in our product is hydrolysed collagen with a lower molecular weight (~5kDa) and is easily digested in the stomach and absorbed in the small intestine.

Where does your collagen come from?

We only use patented collagen extracted from the fish skin supplied by France. No other animal sources are used. Collagen can be obtained from various animal sources e.g. chicken, bovine, porcine, fish or marine animal.

What type of fish is used for the source of collagen?

Tilapia fish. The fish supplied by France are deemed fit for human consumption and guaranteed by health certificates signed by official veterinarians. They only come from fish farms registered by the European Union for the import of edible fish.

Where do our ingredients come from?

We source the best and highest quality ingredients carefully selected from suppliers around the globe.

What is the source of hyaluronic acid?

CYNERGY MED COLLAGEN contains hyaluronic acid (HA) based in bio-fermentation.

Why liquid rather than tablets?

Aside from being easier to swallow, a liquid is readily absorbed as soon as it enters the stomach. Daily dosage (30ml) of CYNERGY MED COLLAGEN contains 10,000 mg of hydrolysed collagen which can be up to 40 times more than a typical collagen tablet. Tablets and capsules may cost less, but in reality, liquid represents far better value due to more hydrolysed collagen being absorbed and distributed in the body.

What happens after oral ingestion of CYNERGY MED COLLAGEN?

The enzymes in our stomach breaks the hydrolysed collagen down into smaller peptides and free amino acids which are then easily absorbed in the small intestine before passing through the small intestine walls to reach the blood stream supplying the dermis. Here, they activate the fibroblast cells to make new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin to hydrate the skin and the rest of the organism and improve its current status.

Doesn’t the stomach acid destroy the collagen preventing it from reaching the dermis (skin’s deeper layer)?

No. The collagen peptides in our product are specifically formulated to retain their structural integrity and cannot be broken down by the stomach acid.
