Information on Collagen
Collagen is actually a group of proteins which occur naturally. It can be found in the connective tissues and the flesh of animals, especially mammals. It is the most important component of the connective tissues and it may make up up to 35% of the whole body protein content. When in the form of elongated fibrils, collagen can usually be found in the fibrous tissues like skin, ligaments and tendons, but it can also be found in the intervertebral discs, the gut, blood vessels, bones, cartilage and cornea. Collagen constitutes up to 2 percent of muscle tissue and it is one of the most important components of endomysium in the muscles. Gelatin, which is a substance known to most people and used extensively in industry and foods, is actually collagen which has been hydrolyzed irreversibly.
Trans Dermal Collagen Gel
Trans dermal collagen gel is actually a certain type of skin treatment which is very popular among a large number of people. There are still quite a lot of people who are not aware of this type of treatment and who are not informed at all about all of its features. Wrinkles and fine lines on the skin form because the skin gets dry as a consequence of the process of aging. The skin on the entire body starts to sag. These occurrences take place because the skin starts losing its capability to generate collagen on its own. The cells in the skin start losing water and shrink, while their metabolic processes get gradually slower and slower.
Collagen is responsible for providing the skin with constant renovation of the cells, proper moisture, elasticity, connectivity and firmness. The solution for all skin aging problems lies in replenished shortage of collagen. The problem is that collagen cannot be absorbed and integrated into the skin’s structural matrix even if it comes from natural sources. The best possible way of dealing with the process of aging is to replenish the collagen deficit and accompany it with promoted activities of Coenzyme Q10 and another chemical compound known as hyaluronic acid. These substances are very efficient in fighting the free radicals and reducing the amount and severity of damage they cause to the human body. Trans dermal collagen gel is efficient in dealing only with some aspects of the aging skin problem, but unfortunately it does not cover all different types of contributing factors, which is why it is actually not the best option.
