Nutritional Fundamentals for Health (NFH)
Collagen is an important protein and the primary component of various connective tissues in the body, accounting for at least 30% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen is mostly made of a repeating sequence of three amino acids (Gly- X-Y), where Gly is glycine; X is often proline, and Y is hydroxyproline or hydroxylysine. This atypical amino acid profile is suggested to be one of the possible aspects that stimulates collagen synthesis in the cartilage and the extracellular matrix of other tissues.
NFH Collagen SAP provides high quality collagen hydrolysate (derived from a combination of type I and III collagen) sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised, BSE free cattle that can help reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. NFH Collagen SAP is a source of the essential amino acid lysine to help in collagen formation.
