Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and belongs to the structural proteins with the function of providing support and shape. There are as many as 28 different types of collagen in the body, which make up 30% of all proteins. Collagen is an important building block of skin, muscles, joint cartilage and all connective tissues.
Read why it is necessary to add it to the body and which Collagen from Medex to choose.
Collagen is derived from the Greek word "kólla", which means glue, and the suffix "gene", which means to create. Collagen represents as much as 30% of all proteins in the body and is thus the most represented protein in the human body. There are more than 28 different types of collagen in our body. Collagen fibers are the main building blocks of the intercellular space of connective tissues, which gives cells support and ensures tissue stability. Collagen is present in the skin, cartilage, bones, muscles and tendons and in all connective tissue.
Our body produces collagen on its own, but after the age of 20, the process of collagen formation in the body slows down. This is first noticed in the skin, which becomes dry and sagging, wrinkles appear, nails become brittle and brittle, and hair becomes thinner. The decline of collagen in the body is also reflected in the difficulty of movement, as the amount of collagen in the joint cartilage and tendons decreases, as well as in the muscle fibers, which become less and less flexible, and the muscle mass begins to decline. Since collagen plays a very important role in our body, it is a highly desirable ingredient in both cosmetic products and nutritional supplements.
Studies on the effectiveness of hydrolyzed collagen have shown that the particles of hydrolyzed collagen are perfectly absorbed, pass largely undamaged through the intestinal wall and pass from the intestine into the blood. Collagen molecules travel through the bloodstream and are deposited where the body needs collagen the most.
The products from Medex's collagen line contain various patented forms of hydrolyzed collagen, which differ depending on the purpose of use.
The main difference between the different forms of collagen in products is the size of the collagen molecules. This determines where in the body the hydrolyzed collagen will be deposited.
- Improves the structure and appearance of the hair.
- Increases hair thickness.
- Improves nail strength.
Hydrolyzed collagen consists of collagen molecules of different sizes, which are well absorbed by hair and nails.
In the body, it ensures the maintenance of their normal structure, which is also proven by studies:
- Consumption of 2.8 g of collagen powder per day for 3 months demonstrates a positive effect on the structure and appearance of the hair. (Margenti et al., 1984)
- Consuming 7 g of collagen powder per day for 3 months has been proven to maintain a normal nail structure. (Research by Makino Publishing Company "Health Research Team", 2004)
With regular consumption of Collagen powder, your nails will be strong and your hair will be strong and shiny.

- Improves firmness and elasticity of the skin.
- Reduces wrinkles.
Collagen is present in the deeper layers of the skin - in the dermis - and provides the skin with support, strength and elasticity. With aging, the body produces less and less collagen, which is reflected in dry and sagging skin, wrinkles appear, and the skin loses elasticity.
The patented form of collagen in Kolagenlift reduces wrinkles, improves skin tension and elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid fills the space between the collagen fibers, and the added vitamin additionally supports the function of collagen and hyaluronic acid: the niacin in Kolagenlift solution contributes to maintaining healthy skin, and the vitamin C in Kolagenlift powder plays a role in the formation of collagen for normal skin function.

PACKAGING: can, 120 g
The decrease in the amount of collagen in the body is also reflected in poorer cartilage regeneration. This is especially noticeable after difficult movement, as collagen is also an important component of articular cartilage.
Healthy cartilage has a smooth gliding surface that allows the joint to move smoothly. Make sure yours stays that way too.
Kolagenflex contains a patented form of Fortigel® collagen, which consists of short molecules with a large proportion of amino acids, important for building articular cartilage. The added vitamin C plays a role in the formation of collagen for the normal functioning of cartilage and bones.
INGREDIENTS: collagen Fortigel® of bovine origin, vitamin C
RECOMMENDED: Adults between 25 and 65, athletes.
USAGE: The recommended daily amount is the content of 1 bag (10 g). Mix it in yogurt, juice, water or another drink and wait until it dissolves well. We recommend regular daily consumption.
PACKAGING: 14 bags of 10 g
Medex's Collagens - Collagen in powder, Collagenlift, Collagen lift in liquid, Collagen Q+ in capsule and Collagenflex - contain patented forms of collagen with different sized molecules, which are well absorbed precisely in the places where the body needs collagen the most.
