Is Collagen Supplementation Just a Fad?

Collagen is more than skin deep and most certainly more important than just a fad, when it comes to the health of our tissues as we age.

In fact, collagen is the most prolific protein in the human adult body and is the predominant protein in fascia, made up of amino acids. Unfortunately, our body stops producing collagen in our mid to late 20’s then, around age 30, our collagen production begins a long, unyielding decline. After age 30, our collagen level drops 1%-2% every year and by age 40, we have lost 10%-20% of our collagen. By 50, we are down 20%-40%. By the time we hit 60 – well, you get the picture.

As with everything, especially supplements, there are the good, the bad and the ugly! Let’s face it there is alot of rubbish out there, which can be highly expensive to pose as good, but truely it tends to be full of nothing but fillers and often worse than the cheaper products available. After doing a lot of market research, and trying many different brands, we finally found Adashiko Collagen.

Adashiko was created in 2013 by Japanese cosmetics developer Yuko Arquette. After working as a product developer for Japan’s leading cosmetics company, Kanebo Corporation, for twelve years, Yuko saw a gap in the market for a high-quality ingestible product to maintain and restore the skin and body from the inside out. She started working closely with a leading Japanese pharmaceutical company to develop her products, and Adashiko was born.

Known as Super Collagen, Japanese produced peptide collagen is the finest in the world. With an advanced low molecular weight of 3000 Daltons, Adashiko is the best-absorbed version of collagen on the market, making it highly dissolvable with no taste or odour.

Peptide Collagen is hydrolysed to reduce its molecular weight to 1/60th of the size of the original molecule. Due to the size of peptide collagen, it can be properly absorbed into the bloodstream and carried to cells in the body, where it sends a signal that stimulates fibroblast and cartilage cells to promote the formation of new collagen.

Adashiko products are manufactured to the highest possible quality and contain 100% natural peptide collagen.
