Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, forming strong sheets and cables that support the structure of skin, internal organs, cartilage and bones, as well as all the connective tissue in between. At the molar mass of 102,000 grams per mole, collagen is an extremely large protein, consisting of thousands of atoms. Its three dimensional structure consists of thickly woven fibrils that wrap around into a triple helix conformation. This structural support is what makes skin thick, and plump, and elastic. Collagen’s role in the aging process is well confirmed. This structural supporting network is what gives skin its appearance. It’s what gives (makes or breaks) the youthful look of firmness, evened tone, elasticity, and a smooth, unwrinkled surface. Protein structures are what make skin look aged and wrinkled or radiant and youthful. When the structural support of these protein fibrils becomes compromised, it becomes less bulky, takes up less space, and brings skin cells out of alignment.
What is happening that makes your skin look older? It loses its elasticity, it becomes thin; it forms wrinkles; it loses its smooth finish; it loses its spring. What explains this? Skin is made up of proteins that support its cellular structure. At the deepest molecular level the proteins that connect skin cells diminish in quantity and become thin. After the age of 25, the biological processes that make these proteins can no longer produce them in abundance as they once did. Not only are less of these proteins produced, the proteins are not as thick and long as they once were.
As the effects of aging are due to improper protein production (the breakdown of proteins), this preparation is the first to fight directly with the cause of aging, not just the effects. Since stifling protein breakdown is the only way to prevent aging, reinforcing protein configurations is the most effective means to that end.

Supplementing diminished collagen levels
Stimulating collagen-producing cells into renewed activity.
Perhaps the most salient attribute of biologically active collagen compounds is their ability to unify with the tightly meshed, cellular matrix of skin that would normally block absorption. The structural similarity of the active protein to that of the skin's proteins acts as an admission ticket to the biological processes that use it, allowing the product to absorb and effectively supplement diminished collagen levels.
Although many products claim to contain collagen as an ingredient, the quality and purity of it are tentative (most products contain 1.5%). What makes Baltic Collagen special is the patented purification process that yields a 98% pure collagen product that remains biologically active and stable at room temperatures. It remains alive so that it can biologically mend with the skin's incomplete proteins in order to regain the structural backing that it once had. Why Collagen?
