What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in all living beings, making up about 30 percent of your pet’s body. It is one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is found in the digestive tract, bones, skin, blood vessels, and tendons, and it plays a vital role as structural protein and connective tissue.
The science behind collagen
As your pet ages, natural collagen levels decrease, contributing to several health issues such as spondilitis, osteoperosis and tendonitis. Consumption of collagen acts as a preventative and curative measure to the above and serves as a natural form of the following:
• Glutamine: This substance keeps your pet’s gut healthy.
• Glucosamine and Chondroitin: These are structural components of cartilage that protect your pet’s joints.
• Vitamins and Minerals: Healthy teeth, a shiny coat and strong bones are the result of the right combination of nutrients.
• Gelatine: Gelatine keeps nails strong and hair healthy.
Apart from the benefits above, the amino acids in collagen help develop a healthy appetite and make digesting food easier due to its high glycine content. With the regular consumption, collagen peptides also promote mobility in your pets, making them feel as great as they did during their growing years. Adding collagen to your pet’s diet can help maintain good health and overall wellness by keeping these illnesses at bay in the most natural way.
Made from healthiest ingredients
Marine Collagen is gluten, sugar and preservatives-free hydrolysed collagen made from the healthiest of fish scales. It is a type 1 collagen which accounts for 90% of the collagen in your pet and is made of densely packed fibers that give structure to the skin, bones, fibrous cartilage and teeth amongst other things. This collagen is manufactured using the process of hydrolysis, resulting in small molecules of collagen that are very easily absorbed by the body.
Why your pet needs it?
Like humans, dogs are also prone to problems such as joint pain, shedding of fur, digestive issues and dry skin. These conditions are further aggravated as they grow older, which is why collagen is so advantageous to your kitties and pooches. This collagen can be consumed by all breeds of active puppies/kittens as well as older and mature dogs. Long-term benefits of taking collagen can most definitely be seen with the regular intake of collagen, both internally and externally. All in all, your pet will surely thank you for introducing collagen to their diet!
