General FAQs

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein and the second largest substance in the body,
behind water. Collagen is a structural protein, making up 75% of our skin and giving it
shape. Collagen is also most commonly found in our bones, cartilage and connective
tissues, making up over 90% of our ligaments. Other structures that are primarily made of collagen include our hair and nails.

Collagen acts as a scaffold within the body, providing structural support, strength and a degree of elasticity (in combination with elastin). In the skin, collagen helps form a fibrous network, upon which new cells can grow. Collagen is also required in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells.

What is in collagen?

Collagen is composed of a series of amino acids, including glutamine, arginine, proline
and glycine Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins and are essential to
synthesizing hormones and moving chemical messages through the body.

As for collagen, amino acids bind together to form procollagen, a precursor for the
protein that’s still strong enough to provide strength and structure. To become collagen,
procollagen undergoes a grouping process, forming long collagen chains with more
than a thousand amino acids. Those chains arrange themselves side by side and bind
together into fibrils, or three-dimensional helices. Many of the unique capabilities of
collagen – for example, being elastic and forgiving enough to be stretched without
tearing – are thanks to the unique properties of these triple helices. They bind closely
together to form a dense sheath of cells and act as the foundation of body materials,
whether it’s in your epidermis (upper layer of skin), your gut, or anywhere else.

What is the difference between Marine and Bovine collagen?

REVIVE OCEANGLO


Revive’s Oceanglo is a natural bioactive collagen peptide powder sustainably derived
from the skin of fish. Revive’s Marine Collagen peptides consist of primarily Type 1 and Type 2 collagen and works from within to promote optimal skin and cellular function as well as cartilage lubrication, by delivering essential micronutrients to the collagen matrix below the dermis. Replenishing collagen levels will help benefit the building blocks that maintain hair, skin and nails.
Once Revive Oceanglo Collagen is ingested, it is absorbed and distributed by the
bloodstream via blood vessels to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin. Here it
stimulates fibroblast proliferation. Thereby increasing the body’s natural production of
collagen.
By ingesting hydrolyzed collagen peptides, you are increasing the pool of specific amino
acids available to the cells in the body that produce collagen. Revive Oceanglo marine
collagen also improves skin elasticity by increasing the density of fibroblasts, which are
the cells responsible for rebuilding connective tissues.
Being a natural supplement, Revive Oceanglo is a non-invasive and effective solution to
nourish your hair, skin and nails
This option is suitable to pescatarians.

REVIVE GLOTRITION

Revive’s Glotrition is a natural bioactive collagen peptide derived from animal (cow/
beef) Not suitable for vegetarians or pescatarians. Revive’s Bovine collage peptides consist primarily from type 1 and type 3 collagen, and works from within to promote optimal skin function and healthy gut and digestive functions .

Bovine collagen is a rich supply of proline and glycine, which are important for
creatine production and helping to build muscle. Type 1 and 3 collagen both help to
maintain the structure and health of skin, bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and blood
vessels. Both of these types are found in the intestines, suggesting they play an
important role in gut health.

Once Revive Glotrition is ingested , the peptides acts in two different forms in the
dermis. In the first action, the free amino acids provide building blocks for the formation
of collagen and elastin fibers. In the second action, collagen oligopeptides act as
ligands, binding to receptors on the fibroblasts’ membrane and stimulating the
production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
Being a natural supplement, Revive Glotrition is a non-invasive and effective solution to
nourish your hair, skin and nails and gut.

Can men use collagen?
