Collagen is the glue that holds the human body together, making up 75 percent of the skin and 25 percent of the internal body structure. There are 26 different types of collagen, providing effective essential amino acid production; injury prevention; and beautiful, strong hair, skin and nails. GreenAcres Market, in Oklahoma City, is offering Genacol, a collagen supplement that has been available in Europe and Canada and has now come to the United States.
Most of the collagen supplements on the market today contain only types I, II and III, but Genacol contains five types of collagen. It should be taken at night for best results.
“As we age, our collagen production begins to decline, producing wrinkles, aches and pains in the body,” explains Certified Naturopath Rohab. “Collagen plays a key role in our tendons, muscles, fascicules, blood vessels, bones, hair, skin and more. It is excellent for anti-aging, for people with fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, arthritis, tendinitis, joint pain or old injuries that lead to the breakdown in the joints. Taking a supplement rebuilds the collagen in the body, and Genacol triggers other types of collagen in the body to work more efficiently.”
