What is Klean Collagen+C?
Klean Collagen+C™ is a delicious natural berry drink mix that contains highly bioavailable collagen peptides combined with naturally sourced vitamin C from organic amla fruit for joint and connective tissue support.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, synthesized by fibroblasts, chondrocytes and osteoblasts. Our joint cartilage and ligaments are made up of 70% collagen and our tendons are 85%. These fibers are highly dense triple helix alpha-chains of amino acids with ~ 1000 amino acid residues per chain. Intact collagen has a tightly bound protein structure and is hard to digest, but when broken down to its hydrolyzed (peptide) form it is easily absorbed in the intestinal tract. Collagen and gelatin are derived from the same source so they have identical amino acid profiles which include essential and non-essential amino acids glycine, glucosamine, hydroxyproline and proline. Collagen peptides offer protection for connective tissue that may become injured as a result of insufficient collagen in the tissues. Vitamin C in combination with the amino acids proline and glycine found in gelatin has been studied for its synergistic effects on the production of collagen after exercise.
