Why Zinc is Critical to collagen absorption

WHY ZINC IS CRITICAL TO COLLAGEN ABSORPTION?
and what about VITAMIN C?
The wonderful thing about taking PURE Hydrolysed Collagen, is that it is easily absorbed, instantly, from the stomach – however there’s a caveat – you need to have the right environment to do so.
Collagen-repairing enzymes in the human body are all ZINC-BASED. If you don’t have enough zinc, your body can’t break it down sufficiently.
Your collagen begins to decline at the age of 21 – we know, depressing – but true. At this age it begins to break down faster than it can be replaced. By the age of 25, you are losing at least 1% of your collagen a year. Might not sound like much, but if you smoke, you’re dehydrated or overly stressed – it’s much more than 1%.
Small wrinkles begin to appear on your forehead, around the eyes and neck. Your hands and fingers are no longer as smooth – this is due to collagen breakdown. ZINC improves stomach acid and is necessary for the uptake of all nutrition, not only collagen. Just one a day is enough.
What about VITAMIN C?
Without enough vitamin C the body cannot produce collagen. While vitamin C is not essential for the absorption of supplemental collagen, it does help the endogenous production of collagen.
It therefore makes sense to always at least take Zinc and Vitamin C daily whether you take collagen or not.
Vitamin C prevents faster breakdown of collagen in the body – though it will continue to decline but at a slower rate.
