What is Collagen flex curcumin?
Collagen flex curcumin is a product with native collagen (undenatured) with curcumin, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and silicon in capsule for relieving joint and back pain.
Collagen represents 30% of all proteins in the human organism and is therefore the most represented protein in our body. It is found in the cartilage, bones and tendons. Cartilage is firm and elastic tissue that absorbs impacts and relieves strains in the joints and retains joint fluid. With aging the quantity of collagen in the body decreases, the regeneration process is not sufficiently efficient, and the joints wear out due to stresses over the years. In some it decreases faster and in some slower; however, the fact remains that joint issues are today one of the most frequent reasons for a poorer quality of life.
Due to joint pain, we often avoid activities that cause such pain, e.g. various sports activities, which further negatively impact our health. As wear progresses, occasional or constant pain may also occur during resting, which may hinder our daily activities.
Joint cartilage wear may also lead to various arthritic conditions. Among the most frequent is osteoarthritis, affecting 10% of people between the age of 40 and 49, and 50% of people over the age of 801. Osteoarthritis is characterised by the deterioration of joint cartilage and bones, which may cause inflammation and pain, swelling, stiffness and poorer joint mobility.
How does it work?
Our immune system, which attacks own cartilage tissue constituents (such as collagen) due to its excessive reactivity, may also contribute to joint inflammation. Collagen flex curcumin contains the patented form of native or undenatured type II b-2cool® collagen (from chicken cartilage), which with its preserved 3D structure stimulates the reduction of the immune system’s reactivity to own collagen in certain parts of the intestine – a mechanism called oral tolerance. It has therefore a beneficial effect on affected joints.
An encapsulated extract of curcumin roots is also added to the product, which additionally contributes to relieving joint inflammation. Curcumin has traditionally been used in folk medicine as a means to relieve various pain and inflammation. In East Asia it is frequently used as a spice; however, this type of use is inappropriate to achieve these effects due to the extremely poor absorption of its active substances – curcuminoids. Curcuminoids from classic alcohol root extracts have very poor absorption properties (< 0.02%), for this reason larger quantities of extract need to be consumed in order to achieve appropriate effects.
The CAVACURMIN® curcumin extract, obtained using a particular patented process, which enables a 40-times greater curcuminoid bioavailability and is one of the best extracts on the market, was added to our product for this reason. With a 200 mg daily dose of extract we can therefore achieve similar effects as if 6-times more classic, highly concentrated extract was consumed.
We also added the patented form of ExceptionHyal® Star hyaluronic acid to the Collagen flex curcumin product. Hyaluronic acid is, in addition to collagen, one of the key building blocks of joint cartilage in the human body. Due to its capacity to bind larger quantities of water, it acts as some sort of lubricant for joints to better slide, and contributes to cushioning impacts to joints during stress and movement. The peculiarity of ExceptionHyal® Star is that it is a wide-range hyaluronic acid, i.e. with molecules of various sizes, which mimic the spectrum of naturally present hyaluronic acid in the body and enable a more comprehensive and efficient action.
Silicon is also important for the normal joint function. It is the third most frequent element in traces in the human body (immediately after zinc and iron), and it contributes to binding collagen fibres and maintaining their firmness and elasticity in joints. It is also very important for correct bone mineralisation (strength).
With aging the content of silicon in joints decreases and coincides with the deterioration of joint collagen. A rich source of silicon are cereals, and men consume it most with beer. Bamboo extract as a natural source of silicon, which contributes to maintaining healthy joints and bones, is used in Collagen flex curcumin capsules.
Added vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of healthy bones and muscle function and to normal calcium and phosphorus absorption, whereas vitamin C contributes to the production of collagen for the normal function of cartilage and bones.
Why choose Collagen flex curcumin by Medex?
- Because it contains patented ingredients proven by clinical studies: type II b-2cool® native collagen (from chicken cartilage) and ExceptionHyal® Star hyaluronic acid (wide range).
- Because it contains bioavalable Cavacurmin® curcuminoids, an encapsulated extract with 40-times higher absorption.
- Because we also added support vitamins and minerals: silicon, vitamin D, vitamin C.
When during the day is consuming Collagen flex curcumin recommended?
The effect of Collagen flex curcumin is highest if consumed on an empty stomach. It is therefore recommended to take it before the first meal of the day.
For how long do I have to use the product?
We recommend regular daily use for a period of 3 months. The product is also suitable for longer uninterrupted daily use.
How much collagen do I have to consume to achieve visible effects?
In order to achieve the effects it is necessary to take as much patented type II b-2cool® native collagen as consumed by test subjects in the clinical studies which have proven the beneficial effect. This dose amounts to 40 mg of type II b-2cool® native collagen, as contained in a daily dose of Collagen flex curcumin.
What is the difference between native and hydrolised collagen?
Native collagen preserves its 3D structure and is undegraded; particles are larger than 350 kDa. Native collagen acts through the immune system – oral tolerance, for this reason absorption is not necessary. Its main effect is the reduction of the decomposition of own collagen. The daily dose of native collagen is smaller than 100 mg.
Hydrolised collagen, on the other hand, is decomposed to smaller peptides in the size of 2-4 kDa. It acts through the reserve of basic building blocks (amino acids) and the stimulation of synthesis with short peptides. Absorption is needed for it to function, and its main effect is to stimulate the synthesis of own collagen. The daily dose of hydrolised collagen is 2.5-10 grams.
