Naturion Q and A 问与答

What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant body protein that is found in mammals, and more widely in the animal kingdom. Collagen fibers are the major constituents of connective tissues, skin, tendons, cartilage and bones. Collagen is an extracellular protein which maintains the structural integrity and the mechanical properties of tissues and organs. Collagen is an insoluble protein. Fully digestible, Peptan™ collagen peptides are 97% pure proteins made of all essential amino-acids, except tryptophan, which makes Peptan™ very suitable as a protein source in functional foods, low sugar, and low carbohydrate products.


哺乳动物和更广泛的在动物王国中, 胶原蛋白是人体含量最丰富的蛋白胶原纤维结缔组织,皮肤,肌腱,软骨和骨骼的主要成分。胶原蛋白是一种细胞外蛋白质,保持结构完整性组织器官的力学性能。胶原蛋白是一种不溶性蛋白质。完全消化Peptan胶原蛋白是由所有基本氨基酸色氨酸,这使得Peptan非常作为功能性食品,低糖,低碳水化合物产品的蛋白质来源适宜97%的纯蛋白质。

What Type are Peptan Collagen peptides ?

As most of the collagen peptides come from skins and hides, Peptan™  is Type I collagen, the same collagen as that found in human bones and skin.


What is Type 1 Collagen ?

Type I collagen is present in connective tissue and bone where it makes up about 90% of the organic matrix. Defects in one or both alleles of the type I collagen gene causes "brittle bone disease" (osteogenesis imperfecta). Patients suffering from such defects have low levels of fully functional type I collagen resulting in fragile bones.



What is the difference between Type 1 & Type 2 Collagen? 

Collagen types are a biological classification.Type I collagen is found in bones and skin. It accounts for more than 90% of organic mass of bone and is also the major component of skin, tendons and ligaments.Type II collagen is the main collagen of cartilage. Purified collagen II does not exist by itself, only in combination with glucosamine & chondroitin. It is thus a different product.


胶原蛋白一种生物类型分类 1胶原蛋白是存在于骨骼和皮肤。它占超过90有机质量,也是皮肤,肌腱和韧带的重要组成部分 2型胶原软骨的主要胶原蛋白。纯化的胶原蛋白2 存在本身只有在与葡萄糖胺软骨素的组合。因此,这是一个不同的产品

Where does the Collagen...Gelatin from?

Collagen is natural protein in fiber form which is main component of skin and bone of living things. Usually collagen cannot be eaten and absorbed because of its large molecule and high density. It is necessary to process into small molecule to be absorbed easily. Those products from collagen are gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen.



 Human bodies compose of total 29 types of collagen but the important ones are only 4 types as shown in Table 1. The general word we call “collagen” is hydrolyzed collagen extracted from Collagen Type I, the main component of bone and skin which can be found in cow skin, pigskin, cow bone, fish skin, fish scale. 

The molecule size of collagen is very big around 300,000 Dalton, then extracted to be gelatin with only 100,000 Dalton, finally the smallest size, Hydrolyzed Collagen wotj 3,000 – 5,000 Daltons for easy absorption. 

胶原蛋白的分子大小是非常大的约30万道尔顿,然后提取到与只有10万道尔顿,最后是最小尺寸,水解胶原蛋白wotj明胶3000 - 5000,便于吸收道尔顿。

Do Collagen really work?

Recent years, Collagen products actively tight together with ANTI-AGING for those who wish to stay young and smooth skin etc. But the responde from most of the collagen user, their feedback is Collagen only gives Short-term Effects, Once stop taking it, rapidly restore to previous condition within few weeks. Reason is collagen easily break down, especially under the sun.That is why necessary to maintain. 



How dose Naturion contribute to weight management ?

Proteins are known to be the most satiating macronutrient for animals or humans. A 97% pure protein, Peptan™ can be used in a blend with other proteins, animal or vegetable, to increase the satiety effect of enriched protein food such as meal substitutes, protein bars, soups…Fat-free, cholesterol-free and carbohydrate-free, hydrolyzed collagen will assist the formulator in development work for balanced food, as it helps to maintain the body and the texture of reduced fat and sugar products.

What is Osteoporosis ?

Osteoporosis is a general disease of the skeleton characterized by a low bone mass and reduction of bone density. Consequently, bone fragility and risk of fracture are increased dramatically.
According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, 30 to 50% of women and 20% of men will experience osteoporosis fracture after their 50’s.



What is Osteoarthritis ?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder of the joints characterized by a loss of articular cartilage and a destruction of articular and peri-articular structures (bones, muscles). Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative joint disease. Osteoarthritis may be classified as primary, when there is no obvious cause, or secondary, when preceded by a related disorder. The prevalence of osteoarthritis is higher among elderly people.



How dose Naturion contribute to joint health ?

Several studies suggest the evidence that collagen peptides, thanks to their amino-acid composition (glycine and proline in particular) regenerative on the cartilage. There are multiple potential applications since the target population may vary from athletes (whose joints are subjected to stress), to elderly people (the group the most affected by osteoarthritis).

How is hydrolyzed collagen taken?

10g of hydrolyzed collagen should be taken daily over a period of 2 months. Best dosage form is a water-soluble powder mix. It's important that people taking collagen internally drink plenty of water. 8 glasses or more per day.

How long will I need to take hydrolyzed collagen?

Expert recommend a daily intake of 10g hydrolyzed collagen for at least 2 months. Research shows that if you stop taking hydrolyzed collagen altogether, the symptoms may reoccur. Therefore, once you have benefited from hydrolyzed collagen, a maintenance dose taken every other day is recommended.




When to use collagen ?

For best result the collagen should be consumed last thing at night because the peak period for repair and regeneration is during the 1st two hours of sleep-known as the alpha cycle. Collagen should also be consumed in the morning before breakfast .



Any scientific support ?

Yes, international studies confirm that collagen has regenerative on the skeleton and locomotive system (bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments). Many articles in reputed journals carries articles on collagen and support the consumption of collagen.



Can I take it when I am on other medication?

Yes, since hydrolyzed collagen is a food supplements and not a pharmaceutical drug, there are neither contraindications nor known side effects.



Is it safe ?

Yes, it is produced through enzymatic hydrolysis process of type 1 fish skin and scales. No serious adverse side effects are known to exist for consumption of hydrolyzed collagen protein.

Any site effect after consumer if collagen?

No, as it's 100% natural marine collagen. 

Can we mix together with any beverages?
