Peptan Collagen with Reishi
You may be somewhat familiar with collagen if you buy skin care products or watch commercials for anti-aging creams, but the importance of collagen goes well beyond trying to look younger.
Collagen is a group of proteins found abundantly throughout the body. It provides strength and cushioning to many different areas of the body, including the skin. More specifically, collagen is found in various types of connective tissues such as cartilage, tendons, bones, and ligaments.
Peptan are bioactive collagen peptides that have been specifically developed to deliver multiple health benefits, supplied in a form that can be easily used and digested by the human body.
Our natural blend of Peptan Collagen and Reishi mushroom assists with joint, bone & skin health, combats signs of aging and acts as a nutritional supplement. Reishi is known as the “elixir of life”, it helps the body to resist disease and stress, boost energy and promote longevity.

How it works
Peptan are bioactive collagen peptides that have been specifically developed to delivery multiple health benefits and functional properties.
Collagen is a triple helix built from 3 amino acid chains, which forms strong fibres and provides the body with structure.
Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein and maintains the form and function of our skin, cartilage and joints.
There are a few types of collagen:
Peptan Type 1 – same type found in our bones and skin and used for overall mobility and skin beauty.
Peptan Type II – it is unique composition that contains the same matrix ingredients that are found in human cartilage and used to support joint health.
Peptan Type III – Type III is often found with type I. When our skin recovers from damage, type III appears as scar tissue. It can also be found in our blood vessels.
Key areas for Collagen benefits:
SKIN – collagen constitutes 70% of the skin’s dry mass content and are a key component of the skin’s structure.
TENDONS – contains 85% collagen type I and must be able to withstand the tension and forces between muscles and bones during muscle contraction
JOINT CARTILAGE – Collagen fibres make up 70% of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength.
BONES – representing 90% of organic bone mass. Collagen provides the structural framework on which calcium and other minerals are anchored.
Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum)
Known as the ‘elixir of life’ it helps the body to resist disease and stress, boost energy and promote longevity.
Adverse reactions are extremely rare, but using reishi for three to six months continuous my result in dryness of the mouth, throat and nasal passages; stomach upset; or nosebleed. These complications appear so seldom that their exact causes are not known.
If taking blood-thinning medications such as warfarin, use Reishi only under a doctor’s supervision.
