Collagen is a natural protein that makes up about 25% to 35% of the whole body proteins. It is important for elasticity and strength in muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and skin. It provides structure to the body and support and connects organs to the skeleton. Collagen is mainly composed of amino acids (building blocks of proteins) and is the main protein in connective tissue.

In an easy way to understand, collagen is the glue that holds the body together and is responsible for skin’s elasticity. Without it, the body would, quite literally, fall apart. There are more than 25 types of collagens that naturally occur in the body. They are responsible for various functions in the body. Type I is the most abundant type of collagen in the body and skin, making up to 75% of the dermis (underneath the epidermis).

The real secret behind collagen stimulation is not "Collagen Creams". Scientists have proven that bovine collagen, which is what has been used up until now, cannot be soaked into your skin when applied.

The particles of bovine collagen are simply too large to penetrate your skin. The biggest secret to stimulate production of your own collagen is in the new European invention. This is the first cosmetic product in the world to be based on fish collagen with the unique formula Q5-26. It possesses epidermis repair properties and does not lose the key to its secret, the triple helix, at room temperatures.

Often collagen is discussed in relation to the skin. It works with keratin to provide the skin with strength, flexibility, and resilience. However, as of 25 years of age the collagen in our skin that keeps us looking young begins to break down and our body’s ability to produce new collagen slows down. Wrinkles and fine lines start to appear. Within five years of menopause, 30% of skin collagen is lost. As such, it is an important substance for those looking for ways to fight the visible effects of aging on the skin. Some skincare professionals actually advise people on ways to stimulate the production of collagen in skin care

It is hydrated from a tri-level collagen solution obtained from fish. The ingenious aspect of this is that the collagen was captured in the vital moment when the protein helix "jumped" from the donor organism into the solution. As a result — long after the fish is eaten — we have its triple-spiral collagen captured in a glass jar.
