Trec Collagen Renover is a complex of two ingredients - collagen hydrolysate and vitamin C, the compounds which are essential in connective tissue regeneration, which builds i.a. cartilages, bones, joints and skin.
Collagen is the main component of connective tissue, which makes it elastic and resistant to stretching - thanks to its proper concentration, skin looks young and osseous and cartilaginous tissues have proper mechanical resistance. The form of hydrolysate in the supplement is pure collagen with high bioavailability.
Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is responsible for a range of functions in the organism. Its form contained in the supplement intensifies the process of biosynthesis and building collagen in connective tissue, works like an effective antioxidant and increases bioavailability of zinc and iron.
Strong structure of connective tissue
The main protein building extracellular matrix and being the component of connective tissue is collagen. It appears both in the proper connective tissue as well as in supportive tissues - cartilaginous and osseous. We may distinguish a few types, depending on the structure and place of appearance, the most important are the ones, which will take the structure of fibers - type I appearing in skin and type II building cartilages and bones.
Collagen biosynthesis encompasses intra- and extracellular stages and its complexity conditions the occurrence of fibers composed of 3 twisted spirals with the structure similar to a rope or cord. All of this is possible thanks to the characteristic sequence of amino acids - glycine-X-Y, where there is proline for X and hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine for Y - amino acids with untypical structure, which occur as a result of post-translation processing. It takes place in the participation of hydroxylases, copper and vitamin C, therefore, along with collagen, they condition proper structure of bones, skin and the osteoarticular apparatus.
Structure of supportive tissues
Osseous and cartilaginous tissues are formed by three types of cells - mature cells (chondro- and osteocytes), actively synthesizing the elements of the matrix (collagen, proteoglycans and other proteins - chondro- and osteoblasts) and also modified macrophages, i.e. cells resorbing bones and cartilages, taking part in the process of their reconstruction (chondro- and osteoclasts). Along with age and among people prone to injuries during practicing sports, degeneration of osseous and cartilaginous elements of joints takes place - inflammatory enzymes secreted by cells lead to destroying organic and non-organic elements, therefore proper supplementation is important.
Other properties of vitamin C
Moreover, ascorbic acid is an essential chemical compound, necessary for the synthesis of catecholamines - hormones as well as neurotransmitters obtained from the amino acid tyrosine, which are produced in the following sequence: tyrosine-dopamine-noradrenaline-adrenaline. Its presence is especially important to perform the reaction of creating noradrenaline, which plays a role of the hormone (i.a. it takes part in lipolysis and increasing blood pressure) and the neurotransmitter (it takes part in regulation of sleep).
Additionally, vitamin C, in cooperation with vitamin E play a role of intracellular antioxidants. Due to the environment of activity, alpha-tocopherol reduces free radicals remaining as a result of oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids released from cell membranes, while ascorbic acid, as a compound soluble in water and occurring in cytosol reduces the oxidized form of vitamin E.
Antioxidant effect along with promoting endothelial synthase of nitric oxide (which results in its increased production) is reflected in practice primarily in preventing diseases of the cardiovascular system, including atherosclerosis and hypertension.
To sum up, Tren Collagen Renover is an ideal supplement, addressed to people, who want to enjoy good condition of skin for long years and those who are prone to the factors which are destructive for the osteoarticular system (physical exercises, age).
The preparation is recommended as dietary supplementation among sportsmen, obese and elderly people Regular use strengthens joints and lowers the risk of injuries. Moreover, the preparation may constitute a supplementation of daily skin care, as it supports and maintains its good condition.

Collagen is a major component that builds connective tissue (tendons, ligaments cartilage, bone, and blood vessels) from the group of fibrous proteins (i.e. scleroprotein), representing a quarter of the content of protein in the body. It is composed of amino acids (glycine, hydroxylysine, hydroxyproline and proline). Distinguished are eight types of collagen located in different parts of the human body. The source of the acquisition is gelatin (a component of the connective tissue of animal origin). It occurs most frequently in the form of processed collagen hydrolyzate characterized by a high and a good absorbency of amino acids. Recommended in sports supplementation and physically active people, as well as during convalescence after injuries and certain diseases. Available as mono-preparation supplement or of multi-compound supplement (usually also containing chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and ascorbic acid).
Dosage: 10-20 g per day.
Collagen hydrolyzate (FORTIGEL) obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen, which is a major ingredient, building up connective tissue (tendons, ligaments cartilage, bone, and blood vessels), from the group of fibrous proteins (i.e. fibrous scleroproteins). Patented formula of collagen hydrolyzate, forming amino acids (such as proline, glycine, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine) connected by peptide bonds. It is a substance easily digestible and well assimilable . Recommended in sports supplementation and for people, who are particularly active, as well as during convalescence after injuries and certain diseases.
Dosage: 10-20g per day (normally used in supplementing).
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.
It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.
Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.
