Colvita: Lyophilization vs Hydrolysis

Colvita: Suplementos de Colageno | Hidrolisis vs Liofilizacion

In its natural state, collagen is a macrostructure insoluble in water. Obtaining collagen is normally carried out in two ways: lyophilization O Hydrolysis.

1- Freeze drying

Colvita® It is obtained by freeze-drying. It is the extraction process used by the pharmaceutical industry.

The freeze drying It is one of the methods used to obtain dry products. It is a freezing process at temperatures below -40ºC under vacuum conditions (1Pa), with subsequent dehydration by sublimation. 

As a result of this process, the active substances retain their properties and valuable components such as  polypeptides.

In the case of using the freeze drying For the extraction of collagen, electrophoretic analysis and morphological examination by electron microscopy confirm that this procedure used to extract collagen does not alter the polypeptide composition of the molecule and its structure.

The NNU (net nitrogen utilization) ratio for the amino acids obtained is 98,96 %. This is a very high anabolic value for a protein isolate. For this reason, 48 mg of lyophilized collagen per capsule in Colvita® They are not comparable to other products with lower or unavailable NNU. The average market value is 16%.

2- Hydrolysis

Direct extraction of collagen-rich tissues, such as the skin, bones and cartilage of animals from the slaughterhouse through direct hydrolysis with proteolytic enzymes or through hydrolysis in acidic or basic media, followed by multiple purification stages, until reaching the final product that is subjected to drying.

The collagen extracted in this way is marketed as  Hydrolyzed collagen, is the most abundant on the market and the cheapest. It is the process used by the food industry.

It looks like freeze-dried collagen in its amino acid/peptide composition, but not in its structure, which has been lost in the extraction process, therefore its applications are not comparable to freeze-dried collagen which is the one used in Colvita®.

Origin of Collagen

Most collagen is obtained from bovine or porcine connective tissue.  of waste from slaughterhouses, from third countries.

He collagen of Colvita® is extracted from  the scales of freshwater carp, - Hypophthalmichty Molitrix  raised in European fish farms with the highest quality control - Collagen from Colvita® It is obtained in the form of triple helix (spiral) molecules that are precursors of collagen fibers. 

Benefits

The regular use of Colvita®provides the body with  free amino acids of collagen type I and their associated benefits:

Wisteria: essential for growth hormone, useful in the formation of red blood cells, keratin (affects the appearance and condition of the skin), also ensures better muscle condition and the adequate amount of bile acids, and also has anti-stress properties.

Proline: supports the condition of collagen and elastin fibers, supports and strengthens ligaments, cartilage, connective tissue, heart muscle, supports wound healing and tissue reconstruction.

Lysine: improves the immune system, participates in the process of building tissues, cartilage, hormones and enzymes, facilitates the absorption of calcium in the bones, protects against viruses, for example, flu, herpes and viral hepatitis.

Alanine: regulates glucose metabolism in muscles.

Tyrosine: produces thyroid hormones, has a beneficial effect on the functioning of the pituitary and adrenal glands, has an antidepressant effect and supports the treatment of insomnia.

Arginine: dilates blood vessels, stimulates tissue growth, including muscle tissue, increases insulin and testosterone levels and adds vitality.

Methionine: It detoxifies the blood in pregnant women, and in all of us it defats the liver, cleanses the kidneys, helps in the treatment of rheumatism and osteoporosis, and lowers cholesterol.

Glutamine: supports our memory and concentration, as well as the functions of the nervous system.

Histidine: important in the production of red blood cells and muscle tissue and especially important as an ingredient in a diet for adolescents.

Composition

Freeze Dried Collagen: Collagen represents 30% of the proteins contained in the human body and the fifth most abundant protein. 

Soft body parts contain a small proportion of collagen while harder tissue (tendons, skin and nails) are almost entirely made up of this protein. Collagen production in humans decreases as we age. Collagen is, in large part, responsible for the condition of the skin, bones and cartilage.

AlgaFucus Vesiculosus: Seaweed extract. Algae are responsible for fighting free radicals. It is rich in minerals such as Magnesium and Zinc and micro elements essential for collagen synthesis, such as Vitamin C.

Vitamin E: It is an essential nutrient for human beings. It is an antioxidant and also contributes to cell maintenance and conservation. 

In Colvita® ® uses D-alpha-to-copherol, a form of vitamin E obtained from natural resources with great biological richness, and Tocotrienol. This vitamin also fights free radicals, as well as the signs of aging in our body.

Vitamin E and vitamin C together promote the synthesis of collagen in the body. 

How to use
