What is collagen?

The word collagen derives from the Greek word for glue, Kólla.

90% of the collagen in the body is found in the type 1 form, this form of collagen is a major structural component and is prevalent in the skin, bones, tendons and other connective tissues such as the ligaments. 

Why Healthspan Collagen?

As we age our ability to produce collagen diminishes. Healthspan Collagen tablets can help to supplement the levels of collagen within your body. Each tablet delivers high levels of hydrolysed marine collagen provided in a low molecular weight to aid absorption. This form of collagen also delivers high levels of essential amino acids such as glycine, proline and leucine. 

What is in each tablet?

Each Healthspan tablet contains our experts’ recommended level of 500mg marine collagen and 20 mg of vitamin C, which is included for the synergistic role it plays alongside collagen. Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the normal function of skin, bones and cartilage, playing a role in the smooth working of joints.

Suitable size and easy to take. Comes in a blister pack for convenience.

I notice a difference in my skin condition for the worse, should I run out. I started using it a while back, when I read a similar comment from another of your users, and noticed a positive effectwell within 10 days. So I just keep taking the tablets!

02 January 2017

Take these one-a-day tablets with Gucosamine & pain in knees almost gone. I'm in my mid-sixties and still like to tackle long walks (8/10 miles). Used to have problems with knees on downhills but no problems now.
Think it also helps with arthritis stiffness in finger joints.
