What Is All The Fuss All About:

This is an attempt to analyse the information about Collagen beds, to gauge whether we are looking at just a current trend, (what I would call a fad) or if the revolution we are being told about has any real credence. There have been many new things brought to market in our industry over the years, and whilst some have been good for the industry, some have been grossly over played and should never have been taken seriously.

After months of looking at this subject and hundreds of hours of painstaking research, we have decided to write a detailed section about the benefits and effects of Collagen as emitted from a low pressure tube. And, whilst not wanting to bore the pants of you, it is worth a read before you get your money out. But firstly, we need to look at the background to this substance in order to understand its importance to us and our industry and, more importantly, to our clients.

What Is Collagen?

Collagen is a type of protein. Fibrous in nature, it connects and supports other bodily tissues such as skin, bone, muscles and cartilage. Indeed, Collagen is one of the main proteins in the body of mammals, including humans. Some people refer to Collagen as the glue that holds the body together.

Collagen fibres are built into organic elements which form complicated structures of inner and outer membranes of the organs. Collagen is the basic building material of fibrous connective tissue of living organisms. Nineteen different amino acids take part in building Collagen. Some of these amino acids appear in different proteins, but very seldom, and in small quantities. Such amino acids are used in quantitative chemical determination. Research has proved explicitly that the skin ageing process occurs in connective tissue, whose main ingredient is Collagen.

Collagen constitutes 30% of the total mass of proteins present in the human body. However, there are 29 different types of Collagen of which each type has a different structure and purpose. It takes part in the vital functions of nearly all systems, organs and tissues.

Since Collagens are so important within the body, it stands to reason that Collagen deficiencies can be problematic. In fact, there are some genetic diseases that are associated with Collagen deficiencies. For example, osteogenesis imperfecta, commonly referred to as Brittle Bone Disease, results from a significantly decreased level of Collagen. It can also result from the presence of collagen which is of lower quality than normal.

A lack of Collagen can cause disorders within the immune system which can be most damaging to health, because Collagen has a very important defensive function. It limits the absorption and spreading of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, micro-organisms and cancerous cells.

In addition to being so important in the body, Collagen also has many medical uses. It is used in some cosmetic surgery procedures. It is even used in treating and managing serious burns, where it is used in creating man-made skin substitutes.
