THE APPROXIMATE AMINO ACID COMPOSITION OF GELATIN
|Amino Acid||Weight %||Mol %|
Protein is necessary for tissue building and repair. Protein is made up of amino acids. You will notice the amino acid profile is the same in the Gelatin Health range of Gelatin / Collagen products. The difference in each of the products is where and how the amino acid chain is split. This enables the product to be produced with specific molecular weight, size, and structural properties to help with tissue building and repair when used as part of a healthy diet involving the consumption of a variety of foods.

HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN AND BONE DENSITY
Bones are the framework of our body. Bone is living tissue that changes constantly, with bits of old bone being removed and replaced by new bone. You can think of bone as a bank account, where you make “deposits” and “withdrawals” of bone tissue. Gelatin and Collagen are rich in nutrients that assist bone health and prevent fractures, brittle bone and degeneration.
WHAT IS BONE DENSITY?
Simply put – it is the amount of bone mineral in your bone tissue. In our body, we need the minerals calcium and phosphate to make and keep healthy bones. Healthy bone density is when you have a balance between the reabsorption of old bone and the creation of new bone.
WHY CAN OUR BONES BECOME WEAKENED?
During our life, our body reabsorbs old bone and then create new bone, and as long as your body has a good balance of new and old bone, your bone density stays healthy and strong. Bone loss occurs when more old bone is reabsorbed than new bone is created. Sometimes bone loss occurs without any known cause. Other times, bone loss and thin bones can be genetic. Brittle, fragile bones can be caused by anything that makes your body destroy too much bone or keeps your body from making enough bone. ** If you think you have weak bone density, talk with your doctor and get it checked**
WHAT ARE OSTEOBLASTS AND OSTEOCLASTS?
This is the name given to the cells that break down and build bone tissue, a function that is critical in the maintenance, repair, and remodelling of bones. Osteoclasts break down bone and osteoblast make bone.
THINGS WE CAN DO TO HELP BUILD BONE DENSITY
Building bone density may be accomplished through several different ways.
Exercise – Weight-bearing exercises like walking, dancing, tennis, basketball, climbing stairs or light weightlifting are all beneficial. Weight-bearing refers to how much of your bodyweight you are holding up while exercising – not lifting weights.
Calcium – Increasing your calcium is a great way to strengthen bone density. It is one of the main factors for building bone density. You can do this by increasing foods that contain high amounts of calcium like broccoli, dark leafy greens and almonds.
Vitamin D – Vitamin D is extremely important for us to be able to absorb calcium from food. You can get Vitamin D from supplements, or it comes directly from sunlight.
Hydrolysed Collagen has been shown to be effective on increasing bone density by its ability to stimulate osteoblast activity. Research has shown that Collagen products and Gelatin are able to act safely and therapeutic towards conditions such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis — Role of Collagen hydrolysate in bone and joint disease.
