About one third of all of the protein in your body is collagen. Collagen is a major structural protein, forming molecular cables that strengthen the tendons and vast, resilient sheets that support the skin and internal organs. Bones and teeth are made by adding mineral crystals to collagen. Kinbi Collagen provides structure to our bodies, protecting and supporting the softer tissues and connecting them with the skeleton. But, in spite of its critical function in the body, collagen is a relatively simple protein.
As pores and skin ages and also with the effect of solar injury our dermal layer that accommodates collagen and elastin fibers that help the higher pores and skin layer, lose lot of collagen.
Due its key functions in health and beauty, keeping high levels of collagen protein in our body is very important at all times for both men and women alike. As collagen degradation leads to wrinkles and other undesirable effects, it is particularly important to supplement collagen as we age. Therefore, collagen has been long used in Japan as we provide in a health & beauty supplement in the form of drinks, tablets, capsules, gelatin, powder, and many other edible forms that can be also mixed with regular foods and drinks. Moreover, by the use of unique Japanese technology, the taste and feeling of collagen-enhanced Kinbi foods and Kinbi Collagen drinks can be as enjoyable as usual!
