Take positive action and maintain skin firmness from deep within, with FANCL HTC Collagen tablets. Active Ingredient: High Tripeptide Containing Collagen (HTC Collagen). Daily Intake: 6 tablets per day Recommended to take after dinner or before bed time Product Literature What is collagen and why is it so important? Collagen is a kind of protein. 20% of the human body consists of protein, and one-third of that protein is actually collagen. The most collagen-rich part of the body is our skin, but collagen is also a vital component of our bones, muscles, blood vessels and all internal organs. To say that collagen is important to our body is an understatement! What does collagen do? Collagen takes the form of fibre and film and works like a kind of glue to connect cells and make up each body part. On skin, it works as a kind of spring and gives our complexion that always desirable “bounciness” that keeps us looking youthful and fresh. The ability of our body to create collagen peaks in our twenties and thirties, after which it steadily declines. By our sixties, our ability to produce collagen within our own body is just a quarter of what it was at its peak. How is HTC Collagen different from regular collagen? The key different between FANCL’s original creation – HTC Collagen and regular collagen lies in its structure. Regular collagen is structurally formed by a large number of amino acids, which means that skin has difficulty absorbing the resulting large molecules. HTC Collagen is very different. Due to a bonding of just three amino acids, HTC Collagen can be absorbed by skin 4 times more, and much faster, than regular collagen with longer structural bonds. Furthermore, FANCL’s HTC Collagen actually boosts synthesis of collagen. Even on skin with low metabolism and signs of aging, HTC Collagen gives skin an instant collagen kickstart.
