Collagen Types 1 and 3

What is Collagen?

Essential structural support for hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments and bones

Collagen is the major structural protein in connective tissue and the most abundant protein in the human body. It provides essential structural support for hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments, bones and blood vessels.

There are a number of different types of collagen; the most prevalent two in the body are Types 1 and 3 with Type 1 being the most abundant and being present in almost every type of tissue.

Bone contains almost exclusively Type 1 Collagen. The collagen in bone provides structural strength to the bone tissue and prevents bone fragility. Type 1 is also a major protein in skin connective tissue providing skin with its strength and resiliency.

Type 3 is found in high levels in cardiovascular tissue and newly developing skin. Types 1 and 3 are often found together in the same tissue as they complement each other.

 

Benefits:

  • Support for hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments and bones
  • Support for ageing – collagen required for growth & repair and wound healing. The rejuvenating process becomes less efficient as we age. This manifests internally and externally. The obvious effects showing in the skin. As the skin ages, levels of types 1 and 3, plus elastin, decrease in the dermis – resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and an aged look. The ageing rate depends on many factors, such as UV exposure, genetics
  • Doctor’s Best Collagen provides the building blocks for collagen renewal and maintaining the body’s healthy structure. By using this consistently it can lead to a more healthy, vibrant, youthful tissue structure
  • Helps maintain strong, healthy bones
  • Vitamin C is included as it is required for collagen synthesis and strengthens collagen matrix
  • Support for joints. By using hydrolysed collagen this also supports the structure and function of cartilage and can help stimulate the production of a major protein in cartilage (Type 2 Collagen)

Structure of collagen

Collagen is a long fibrous protein that makes up the matrix of connective tissue. It gives sturdiness and integrity to the fibre matrix. Collagen molecules are rich in amino acids, particularly glycine and proline. Doctor’s Best Collagen has been enzymatically hydrolyzed into component amino acids for optimal absorption and utilization by the body.

What is the difference between collagen types I, II, and III? Can I take all three at once?
Type I is the most abundant collagen in the body and is in high concentrations in blood vessels, tendons, skin and muscle tissue.
Type III is used by the body for quick repairs and is often a precursor to type I.
Type II is the major component of hyaline cartilage in joint tissue.
Taking all together would likely yield an increase in the building blocks that are needed by the body to support connective tissue in many different areas.
Why does the label of Best Collagen Types 1 & 3 suggest that the product not be mixed with protein supplements?
The Best Collagen Types 1&3 should not be taken with protein powder supplements to ensure optimal absorption. The product can still be taken concurrently with a protein supplement however; the supplements should not be taken at the same time.
It seems that information is now out claiming that magnesium stearate is a form of, or implicated in, trans fat, which everyone now regards as being bad. Why does Doctor’s Best use magnesium stearate in its products?
Magnesium Stearate is used as a lubricant in the formula. Magnesium Stearate is a salt of stearic acid.
Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid. A trans fatty acid (commonly shortened to trans fat) is an unsaturated fatty acid molecule. Stearic acid, being a saturated fatty acid, is not a trans fat. The magnesium stearate used in Doctor’s Best products is vegetable sourced from palm oil.
What is the croscarmellose sodium excipient that is found in several of the Doctor’s Best products?
Croscarmellose sodium is a commonly used excipient in tablets. It is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a "disintegrant," which means it helps tablets break apart in the stomach. In simple terms, croscarmellose sodium is made of cellulose gum with a very small amount of sodium. The sodium content is less than a half a percent (less than 0.5%).
Cellulose is a non-digestible fiber, which means the tiny amount in tablets passes through the gut without being broken down or absorbed. As far as adding to anyone's dietary sodium intake, the amount is too small to be of any consequence (Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients, 2nd Ed. American Pharmaceutical Assoc).
What is the raw material of the Best Collagen Types 1&3?
Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen.
Is it OK to take Collagen Type 2 with Collagen Types 1 and 3, or do they compete with each other for absorption?
They do not compete. To some extent, both would be digested in the GI tract and provide building blocks to the body for connective tissue support.
Type I is the most abundant collagen in the body and is in high concentrations in blood vessels, tendons, skin and muscle tissue.
Type III is used by the body for quick repairs and is often a precursor to type I.
Type II is the major component of hyaline cartilage in joint tissue.
Taking all together would likely yield an increase in the building blocks that are needed by the body to support connective tissue in many different areas.
