Genepeptide GP100 In recent years, Collagen has been found to physiologically activate the human body.  The proper usage of an enzyme that splits the peptide bonds will enable the control of the amino acid sequence involved in the digestion of the collagen.  If the intentional ingestion of peptides with amino acid sequences that result in such positive physiological benefits becomes possible, it will be an enormous step forward for health. What is Collagen Peptide ? Collagen peptide is the hydrolysed form of collagen, a fibrous protein present in the Extracellurlar Matrix of living cells. After hydrolysis the product loses its gelling ability and makes it soluble in cold water. Collagen Peptide is also known as "Collagen Hydrolysate", "Gelatin Hydrolysate", "Hydrolysed Collagen". It differs greatly from other proteins as it contains amino acids Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline in a concentration that is around 10-20 times higher than in other proteins. These amino acids play an important role in building fibrous tissues. An insufficient supply of these amino acids results in painful joints, brittle fingernails and hair. Many studies indicate that Collagen Peptide has a preventive and regenerative effect on bones, cartilage, tendon etc., Collagen Peptide also contains all the essential amino acids except Tryptophan. What are the Benefits of using Collagen Peptide? The amino acid composition of collagen peptide is almost similar to collagen in body.  Thus Collagen Peptide is a "customised" Collagen building block. It is a product derived from natural source raw material with no reported side effects. It does not react with drugs or other food or food ingredients. Administration of Collagen Peptide stimulates the anabolic phase of cartilage matrix turnover. This brings about a phase of regeneration and stability in joint cartilage. Genepeptide Complex © Copyright BEAUTY’S SECRET COSMETICS USA 2012 Collagen Peptide as a Functional Food Supplement for Joint Health and Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease. One of the root causes for Osteoarthritis is the progressive destruction of articular cartilage. Joint cartilage mass consists mostly of collagen and proteoglycans. The product of cartilage is regulated by specialised cells called chondrocytes. In the process of ageing the chondrocytes can't keep up the natural regeneration process and cartilage starts to break down. Currently there is no wholesome solution to the Osteoarthritis problem. Clinical studies indicate that Collagen Peptide stimulates Collagen synthesis in chondrocytes and hence it supports the joint cartilage. The product is gaining wide acceptance across the world as a functional food supplement for Joint Health. Collagen Peptide has no side effects, as it is natural product. Daily supplement of Collagen Peptide:     Promotes cartilage health     Improves joint flexibility and mobility in joint function     Reduces joint pain     Reduces the consumption of pain relievers     Maintains joint health in active people Collagen Peptide as a Function Food Supplement for Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture.  This is a condition where bone substances degenerate to such an extent that the bone density decreases and its structure becomes porous.  This is most common on women after menopause.  Osteoporosis reduces the capacity of the bone to fulfill their support function. The present treatments include adequate supply of Calcium to compensate mineral loss, but this is only one cause and its solution.  Loss of mineral means loss of collagen also.  It is believed that by administering Collagen Peptide, the building blocks required for renewing Collagen are provided and body then uses them for this purpose.
