Jarrow Formulas Collagen Optimizer is a complete formula directed at the support of the health of joints and bones and the improvement of general condition of hair, skin and nails. The fundament of the supplement is constituted by the highest-quality hydrolyzed fish collagen type I, which complements systemic supplies of collagen and stimulates its endogenous production. Its absorption is supported by niacin and vitamin C. The whole is complemented by silicon, which is essential for connective tissue.
The preparation is in the form of a comfortable to use citric flavor and aroma powder. Despite the origin of the raw material, it is devoid of fish smell and flavor. It also does not contain sugar – steviol glycosides are responsible for its sweet taste.
The supplement is recommended to people who need support for the movement apparatus, i.e. sportsmen, seniors, convalescents who are recovering after injuries and fractions. It may be used also by people who complain about bad state of hair, skin and nails. It protects skin from the harmful influence of sunrays, it smoothens small wrinkles, stimulates hair growth and prevents nail splitting.
Collagen is a structural protein, which builds almost all tissues and organs of the human organism. It helps to maintain strengths and elasticity of skin, tendons, joints, bones, muscles and ligaments; it ensures proper condition of blood vessels, is responsible for the appearance of skin and nails. Apart from its fundamental biomechanical functions, collagen also takes part in the development of organs, wound healing and regeneration of damaged structures of the connective tissue.
Fish collagen type I is considered to be one of the best external sources of collagen. Its amino acid profile is similar to human collagen – it contains large concentration of glycine, hydroxyproline and proline. In comparison to bovine, chicken or porcine collagen, collagen obtained from fish is absorbed by the organism two times better. It is also characterized by better bioavailability, which stems from the low molecular weight and small size of peptides of the hydrolyzed fish collagen. It is incredibly vital and to a large extent it decides about the effectiveness of the supplement.
Exogenous fish collagen constitutes perfect support for bones, articular cartilages and tendons. It stimulates the activity of osteoblasts (blood-forming cells), supports the process of mineralization and at the same time it improves the endurance of bones and makes them resistant to fractions. It also ensures proper elasticity and extendibility of tendons. It may be used in the prophylaxis of osteoporosis; it works well for elderly people, among whom natural production of collagen drops, contributing to the dysfunctions in the osteoarticular system. It is also recommended to sportsmen, who are especially prone to injuries related to overburdening of the movement apparatus.
Fish collagen accelerates regeneration after injuries, shortens the time needed to heal wounds, prevents tissue scarring. The ability of the organism to repair damages developed in connective tissue or bones to a large extent is based on collagen. It is not only thanks to its building element, but it also controls many cellular functions, including the processes of proliferation and migration of cells and the synthesis of important proteins.
Fish collagen influences the condition of skin, hair and nails. It is responsible for smoothness, elasticity and firmness of skin. It prevents the loss of moisture, decreases visible signs of aging. It may contribute to smoothing minor wrinkles and prevents the creation of deep ones. It improves the state of nails – it strengthens nail plate, limits its brittleness and splitting. Is stimulates hair growth, increases its thickness and elasticity.
Silicon is classified to the so-called trace elements, but despite its small amounts in the body, the organism cannot properly function without it. The role of silicon to the largest extent is related to the health of connective tissue.
Silicon conditions the production of collagen in the organism. It plays the function of a cofactor of an enzyme from the group of proline hydroxylases, which activates endogenous synthesis of collagen. It also has influence on gene transcription of collagen type I.
Silicon supports the condition of articular cartilage. It works with glycosaminoglycans (GAG) and mucopolysaccharides (MPS), which are in the composition of the cartilage structure, ensure its proper amortization and resistance to friction.
Silicon stimulates bone mineralization. It is one of the most important processes with the principal meaning for bone density, toughness, endurance and resistance to fractions.
Vitamin C supports proper collagen production. Only in its presence, the conversion of L-proline to hydroxyproline is possible, which constitutes an essential stage of the process of collagen synthesis.
Red Orange Complex® is and exceptional, patent-protected mixture of extracts from certain kinds of Sicilian oranges. It constitutes a natural, incredibly rich source of flavonoids, anthocyanins and vitamin C.
In supplementation, it mainly works as a product which secures skin from the harmful influence of UV radiation. Solar radiation contributes to the intensification of the production of free radicals in the organism, it increases oxidative stress and consequently it generates inflammation in the organism. This, in turn, results in damaging DNA and accelerating skin aging. Bioactive compounds contained in red oranges have massive antioxidant potential, therefore they may naturally counteract these phenomena.
Niacin, i.e. vitamin B3 plays a range of various functions in the organism – it supports energy production, is responsible for coordinating the nervous system and facilitates detoxification. It also has important influence on the appearance of skin, hair and nails.
Niacin strengthens lipid barrier and improves skin moisture. It was proven in the research that the treatment with niacin during a month decreased transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by 24%. At the same time, natural protective barrier of skin was enriched – the amount of phospholipids was increased by 67% and the number of ceramides by 34%.
Niacin inhibits the process of skin aging. It limits collagen degeneration and contributes to increasing the number of fibroblasts (the most numerous cells of connective tissue). It was proven in the research that under the influence of niacin, the number of fibroblasts increased by 20% while the secretion of collagen was improved by 54%.
Niacin improves the color of skin, prevents hyperpigmentation and freckles, which appear on skin under the influence of sun or as a natural consequence of aging. It regulates the production of melanin and inhibits the transport of melanosomes to keratinocytes. Thanks to this, it counteracts the cumulation of melanin and brightens complexion.
Summing up, Collagen Optimizer is one of very few complete products which may be applied both for health and beauty. It is appropriate both for men and women at all ages. It supports the osteoarticular system and alleviates any symptoms of this system. It prevents injuries and in case they appear, it shortens the time needed for post-injury regeneration. It ensures beautiful appearance and optimal condition of hair, skin and nails.
Complex preparation directed at strengthening connective tissue. Preventively it is recommended to use 1 portion per day. Dissolve a measured amount of powder (1 scoop = ca. 6,5 g) in cool water or another liquid and drink.
In order to ensure optimal bioavailability of the supplement, it should be taken on an empty stomach, preferably around 30 to 60 minutes before a meal. Special attention should be paid to the fact that collagen cannot be combined with products containing protein (including protein supplements), which inhibits and impairs the absorption of collagen.
