You’ve probably heard of collagen before, but are you familiar with what it does for your body? Let’s take a deeper look at how collagen in Tchê can benefit your health!
Collagen is the main protein found in our bodies, consisting of about 30% of the protein in our body. Cells called fibroblasts are responsible for the production of this natural protein along with other fibers that promote the connective tissue in our bodies to remain “glued together”.
Collagen is basically the MVP in assisting our bodies to build our skin, nails, hair, bones, tendons, organs, and other body parts!
Collagen can be described as “the connector” in our bodies. It contributes to connections in our organs such as our skin, muscles, kidneys, and even aids in repairing arteries from damage caused by fat deposits.
It contributes to the connections between bones and cartilage by anchoring tissues together. Collagen also contributes to the elasticity in skin, allowing us to move our bodies and being able to retain our shape.
Aiding wound healing
When healing from injury or wounds, collagen plays an essential role. Our bodies relay the message to fibroblasts to travel to wound sites and produce collagen.
This supports the creation of new blood vessels in order to bring blood and essential vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin A and zinc which are also found in Tchê) that supplement healing.
Improving joint health and Reducing inflammation
In some studies (*1), collagen has been found to improve symptoms of osteoarthritis by reducing symptoms of inflammation. This reduction of inflammation happens when our bodies store collagen in our joints. It then stimulates collagen production in that area, which reduces inflammation as collagen blocks cartilage destroying enzymes.
Osteoarthritis can cause pain and discomfort as the connective tissue in the joints tear. As we age, connective body tissue will wear out, or become injured leaving us in pain.
In Tchê, we include the 1000mg per serving clinical daily dose of collagen needed by your body in order to allow your body to do the work to repair itself. Collagen has been known to be one of safest and effective supplements with little to no side effects when used by most people.
We believe that by giving our bodies the whole ingredients it needs, it allows us to heal ourselves from the inside out.
