Collagen has been called the most important building block in the human body. It comprises over a third of your body's proteins. It makes up 75% of your skin and 30% of your bones. And in joints, collagen makes up 70% of cartilage and up to 90% of tendons and ligaments. Collagen production begins to diminish starting at age 21. By the age of 40, the loss is typically about 1% per year.
choline-stabilized OrthoSilicic Acid. ch-OSA® is BioSil®'s patented complex that's clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, thicken and strengthen hair, strengthen nails, increase bone mineral density, and increase bone collagen formation. ch-OSA® activates the biological pathways that generate collagen.
BioSil® is not made out of collagen, it generates collagen. When you ingest collagen, your body breaks it down and uses it as food. BioSil®, by contrast, switches on the body's own collagen-producing cells. In skin these cells are called fibroblasts. In bone, they're called osteoblasts. BioSil® not only generates collagen, the newly formed collagen has your own DNA fingerprint.
