Doctor’s Best Collagen Types 1 & 3 is a dietary supplement which contains the highest-quality collagen proteins types 1 and 3, which underwent enzymatic hydrolysis in order to guarantee the proper amino acid content and effectiveness. The product is additionally enriched with vitamin C, which is involved in the synthesis of collagen and promotes the proper condition of connective tissue.

The supplement supports the treatment of bone and joint diseases as well as improves the condition of skin, hair and nails. Moreover, it positively affects joint mobility and increases comfort of exercising.

Collagen is a common extracellular protein which is the basic structural component of dermis. Collagen proteins make up for 1/3 of all proteins in the body system, and they are present also in ligaments, tendons, cartilage and cornea.

The main function of collagen is the maintenance of the proper structural integrity of connective tissue, its elasticity and resistance to stretching. Collagen type 1 is present mainly in the skin, bones, ligaments and tendons, while collagen type 3 – in the skin, blood vessels and intestines.

Until now, 29 genetically different forms of collagen were described. Their common characteristic was the presence of super-helix, a triple helix. Super-helix is stabilised mainly due to the presence of glycine and large amounts of proline and hydroxyproline. All proteins from collagen group are built only of endogenous amino acids.

Collagen and ageing
With age, the ratio of collagen synthesis drops. Also the activity of enzymes involved in posttranslatic modifications is lower, and collagen fibres become thinner. Already after the age of 25, the human body system loses its ability to keep the balance between synthesis and degradation of collagen, which results in deterioration of skin and nails condition, impaired functioning of blood and lymphatic vessels as well as can lead to serious consequences, like arthritis or osteodystrophy.

Moreover, with age we can observe impaired functioning of fibroblasts, which results in slower production and exchange of collagen. Impaired collagen metabolism contributes not only to dysfunctions within mobility, whose symptoms include stiffness and joint pain, but it also negatively affects tissues and organs, for which collagen is important.

Collagen – a protein important for skin
As the most important component of extracellular matrix, collagen is crucial for skin, as it is responsible for its elasticity and durability. Collagen type 1 is the most common in the skin and is a fibrous support for skin, while collagen type 3 entangles collagen fibres type 1 and determines their proper arrangement. Impaired collagen metabolism can be a cause for premature wrinkles, skin damage and discolouration.

Collagen can restore young appearance of skin, counteract hair loss and add brigthness, strengthen the nail plate and prevent its splitting.

Collagen for the proper functioning of bones and joints
Collagen type 1 makes up for 85–95% of all organic substances in bones. It is responsible for the tissue resistance to stretching and bone hardness.

Collagen hydrolysate promotes joint protection and can contribute to the reduction of pain resulting from overburden or injuries. Collagen supplementation can also contribute to the restoration of joint cartilage.

To sum it all up, Doctor’s Best Collagen Types 1 & 3 is a dietary supplement which brings many benefits for both health and beauty. It is intended for people being at risk of damaged joints resulting from overburden and other factors which can negatively affect joint structure.

The product is also recommended for elderly people, athletes and people struggling with autoaggressive diseases (osteoarthritis). Also obese people who put their joint at risk of increased burden should take care of the proper collagen level in the body system.
