Collagen is also a kind of protein. Collagen is absorbed by digestive enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract. The absorbed amino acids are not necessarily reconstituted into collagen but are used as raw materials for the synthesis of other proteins. Long term use of synthetic ingredients is not good for your health.
In addition, all edible proteins, including collagen, are not recommended for long-term use in special flying conditions. Except for the unnatural synthetic ingredients mentioned above, excessive intake of protein itself can cause urinary protein, increase the burden on the kidneys and damage the kidneys after long-term use.
Collagen (also known as collagen) is a structural protein of extracellular matrix, English name "collagen", from the Greek evolution, polysaccharide protein, white, containing a small amount of galactose and glucose, is the main component of extracellular matrix (ECM), accounting for about 85% of the solid collagen fiber.
Collagen is a kind of macromolecule protein which is ubiquitous in animals. It mainly exists in the connective tissue of animals (bone, cartilage, skin, tendon, toughness, etc.). It accounts for 25%-30% of the protein in mammals and is equivalent to 6% of the body weight.
In many marine organisms, such as fish, its protein content is even more than 80%. It plays an important role in supporting, protecting, combining and forming barriers. In addition to biomechanics, it also has functions such as signal transduction, growth factor and cytokine transport.
