Collagen is one of the most important proteins in your body and can be found in skin, cartilage, bones, sinews, muscle tissue, as well as all connective tissues. Find out why it is necessary to add it to your body and which Kolagen from Medex fits your needs.
Collagen and its role in your body
The name collagen stems from Greek »kólla« which means glue, and »gen« denoting »producing«. Collagen represents 30 % of all proteins in the human body, which makes it the most abundant protein. As much as 28 different types of collagen molecules can be found in our body.
Collagen fibres are the main constituents of the extracellular matrix that functions as an anchor for the majority of tissue and provides structural support to the surrounding cells. Collagen can be found in skin, cartilage, bones, tendons, muscle tissue, as well as all connective tissues.
Collagen is a substance that is naturally produced by the body. However, when we reach our thirties, the process of producing collagen in the body slows down, which causes the occurrence of wrinkles, dry and flabby skin, crinkly and torn nails, poor hair structure, loss of muscle flexibility, joint mobility and difficulty moving.
The importance of collagen for our body makes it a desired ingredient in cosmetics, as well as food supplements.
Collagen as a food supplement will make up for the inevitable loss of your own collagen and ease the above-mentioned symptoms.
Hydrolysed collagen – for the best absorption of collagen in your body
Studies on the effectiveness and absorption of hydrolysed collagen have shown that hydrolysed collagen particles are well- absorbed, pass through the intestinal wall undamaged and as such enter the circulatory system and connective tissue (cartilage and skin).
Medex collagen line includes different patented forms of hydrolysed collagen, depending on the purpose of each product.
Kolagen powder for strong nails and hair
Hydrolysed collagen is composed of molecules of different sizes that are well absorbed into hair and nails. In thebody, it maintains their normal structure, which has been proven by different studies:
• The intake of 2.8 g of collagen powder per day for three months in a row has shown positive results in the structure and appearance of hair. (Margenti el al., 1984)
• The intake of 7 g of collagen powder per day for three months in a row has proven to maintain a normal nail structure. (Makino Publishing Company »Health Research Team«, 2004)
Regular use of Kolagen powder results in stronger nails as well as thicker and shiny hair.
INGREDIENTS: 100 % hydrolysed bovine collagen
RECOMMENDED FOR: Adults over twenty who want to improve the quality of their hair and nails.

Kolagenlift for naturally beautiful skin
Collagen is found in the deeper layers of our skin - in the dermis, skin’s middle layer - where it imparts strength, support, and a certain amount of elasticity. With ageing the body loses its ability to produce collagen, which results in dry and sagging skin, wrinkles appear and skin loses elasticity.
The patented forms of collagen in Kolagenlift are proven to reduce wrinkles, improve skin tensity and elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen fibres; moreover, added vitamins support the impact of collagen and hyaluronic acid: niacin in Kolagenlift solution contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, and vitamin C in Kolagenlift powder contributes to the normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin.
INGREDIENTS: Verisol® collagen, hyaluronic acid, niacin
Verisol® collagen is a bovine protein with specific ratio of different amino acids and good bioavailability. It contains collagen molecules with low molecular weight that are well absorbed into the skin and nourish it from the inside.
RECOMMENDED FOR: Adults over thirty-five who want to improve the appearance of their skin.
USE: The recommended daily allowance is one bottle. The solution in the bottle is ready to drink. To achieve the best results, we recommend regular every-day use.

Kolagenbody for firm body and maintenance of body mass
Collagen is also the main ingredient of connective tissue surrounding muscle fibre, and provides for muscle firmness and flexibility. With ageing, the ability of our body to repair collagen is significantly lower, muscles become flabby, and muscle weight lowers.
Kolagenbody was developed to help maintain firm body and muscle mass.
It contains hydrolysed Bodybalance® collagen, magnesium and vitamin C powder – the combination of active ingredients that contribute to normal muscle function and to the growth in muscle mass.
INGREDIENTS: Bodybalance™ collagen (bovine source), magnesium, vitamin C
RECOMMENDED FOR: Adults over forty, endurance athletes who lack time for muscle regeneration, as well as seniors who are facing loss in muscle mass.
USE: The recommended daily allowance is one and a half scoops (10 g; scoop enclosed). Dissolve the powder in 2 dl of cold liquid and mix well to dissolve. To achieve the best results, we recommend regular every-day use.

Kolagenflex for the ease of moving
Lower concentration of collagen in the body is also reflected in slow regeneration of cartilage. The most noticable consequence is difficulty moving, since collagen is an important constituent of articular cartilage.
Healthy cartilage has a smooth surface that enables joints to move smoothly. Keep yours like this as well.Kolagenflex contains the patented Fortigel® collagen, which is composed of short molecules with a high proportion of amino acids essential for formation of articular cartilage. Added vitamin C contributes to the normal collagen formation for normal function of bones and cartilage.
INGREDIENTS: Fortigel® collagen (bovine source), vitamin C
RECOMMENDED FOR: Adults between twenty-five and sixty-five of age, athlets.
USE: Recommended daily allowance is one bag (10 g). Mix it with water, yogurt, juice or any other liquid. To achieve the best results, we recommend regular everyday use.
PACKAGING: 14 bags, 10 g each
