’’THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW’’
..’’Collagen is the most important protein, not only for humans, but for all the vertebrates . It makes up more than 30% of the protein mass in the human organism . It is the main component of the most important tissue in our lives – connective tissue. Everyone knows how important blood is to the organism, but few are aware that as an organism, we are literally swimming in collagen . The cellular fluid, in which our tissues are submerged, is actually collagen . The bone hair and dental matrices are likewise collagen What is the largest human organ? This question is a tough one and often draws the wrong answer . The answer is the skin, which covers, protects and adorns us . It also serves our organism in excretion, emission and respiration - 70% of skin protein is also collagen . Collagen is not given to us once and for all . It is constantly undergoing change . It dies and is simultaneously created and constantly supported by chondrocytes, keratinocytes and fibroblasts – the cellular production and renovation works for collagen . How does this work? Well, in the teeth, eyes and hair there are biosynthetic processes underway which join at least 19 amino acids in a cyclical pro- collagen sequence . The peptide sequence chain forms a polypeptide chain which contains as many as 1000 amino acids . This “factory” releases cellular fibroblasts which once in extracellular space, join into spirals, usually laevorotatory super helices .
These are the basic aspects of our knowledge on biochemical proteins . We can often hear opinions on the “impossibility” of spreading collagen onto the skin and having it penetrate to the dermis and, in particular, creating fibroblasts or keratinocytes from it . This is a misunderstanding . There will be much more on the penetrability of collagen later in the text . However, no one has ever demanded that high-molecular fish protein, upon being spread onto the skin, should reach the cells naturally producing collagen in the human skin . And no one has ever stated that this is the case . First of all, this is clearly impossible . Secondly – what for? The trans - dermal mechanism of Natural Collagen relies on something much different . Upon encountering the five layer barrier of the epidermis, fish collagen spirals break down into amino acids, which are constructed the same way as human collagen . These are the same amino acids as in human collagen: hydroxylene, glicine, proline and hydroxyproline . This last one is worthy of special attention, as it is relatively easy to measure it in micrograms per cubic millimetre in all research materials . The same is true with comparative trials in the extracellular matrix . The extracellular matrix is a gelatine network of proteins and sugars which act as a framework for the three layers of skin: the epidermis and hypodermis which are connected by the dermis . The extracellular matrix is composed mainly of collagen,
elastin, glycoprotein and carbohydrates . Its consistency and appearance would remind one of Collagen Natural Silver if we were to evaporate two thirds of its water . If we are striving to improve the condition of collagen in our dermis through diet and the application of creams (with biologically active substances and vitamins with carriers) as well as caring for it with natural collagen - we are in fact striving to increase the amount of collagen in the extracellular matrix! This forms a protein web , whose density determines the elasticity, firmness and degree of skin wrinkling . For the extracellular space this is a collagen “factory”, of fibroblasts, chondrocytes and keratinocytes freeing the polypeptide amino acid chains . It is here, with the help of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) as an activator, the amino acid sequence twists into helices . We already know that this happens much more enthusiastically when the extracellular matrix is reinforced by a shower of peptides which, are absorbed and dissolved, on their way through the high capacity layers of the dermis - fish collagen spirals . That is what, in basic terms, the transdermal process of Natural Collagen looks like . Today this process can be revealed in five ways: by a tissue biopsy measuring the number of hydroxyprolines before and after application of protein hydrates onto the skin, by administering a radioisotope preparation and tracking its movement through the organism, by observing the decreased suppression activity of T lymphocytes isolated with collagen in vitro, through the immunofluorescent marking method and finally by determining the level of the densitometry percentage in a peptide preparation accompanying the so-called alpha chains. No one has questioned the transdermal nature of these peptides . What we don’t know exactly however, is why amino acid tissue simulations of fish collagen hydrates activate the function of fibroblasts and keratinocytes . This question requires research of the highest level which, at the moment, is doubtful to be carried out in Poland . In any case, the frequent questioning of the benefits of Natural Collagen form a “scientific standpoint” is clearly off the mark . None of collagen’s critics can question the basis of the research because no one is undertaking this research .
Collagen protein is still a grey area in the field of bio-organics, and those who think they know it well, are quickly humbled . We are, at present, not even able to precisely describe all of varieties and sub-varieties of collagen . Triple helix collagen has a very similar “appearance” to human DNA spirals, and it turns out to be even more mysterious than that “rather well known” spiral . Human DNA however, is doomed to the cell, while super helices live extracellular . If you read or hear the following statement:“collagen as a protein is high-molecular and it cannot penetrate the skin etc ” you know that they are being logically and technically correct, but are speaking off the subject . They are preaching about something which has never been stated . Natural Collagen does not penetrate, as it does not need to penetrate to the dermis . It is totally sufficient for the stimulation of reconstruction of the organism’s own collagen . If hydroxyl peptide chains or hydroxyproline remaining from the fish protein spirals are torn away due to penetration of the epidermis, they will enrich the extracellular space of the layer connecting the epidermis and the dermis . Relatively speaking, nothing much happens during this process, aside from the original formation phase of peptides, which are “pushed” out of the cell anyway . Here, in the extracellular space, the pro- collagen formed in the fibroblasts is synthesised into helices . Thus “our” collagen NEED NOT penetrate to the nucleus of the cell . The fish collagen applied to the skin does not adhere miraculously to our collagen fibrils . Nor does it penetrate the skin in whole form, nor does it reach the interior of the fibroblasts . No one has ever said it does .
It immediately enriches the extracellular matrix of all the layers of the skin with amino acids, which causes an, as of yet clinically undefined mechanism, facilitating fibroblast activity . At the same time increasing the organism’s production of its own collagen . Cosmetologists and dermatologists questioning the a priori activity of Natural Collagen do so strictly on the basis of the books from which they learned - 100% of which were written in the 20th century . They wrote in the late 60s that collagen cannot dissolve in water (which is obviously not true), at the end of the 80s that it can only possess a spiral structure within a living organism (also untrue) and at the close of the 90s, and even later, that it was “too large” molecularly to move about in the epidermis (also no longer current) . Normal immunological research has currently shown how collagen molecules are formed, and eventually migrate into the extracellular matrix of the epidermis, where peculiar enzymes lead them to connections with several hundred amino acid peptide constructions, created in keratinocytes . All this goes on in an epidermal layer, “too dense” according to modern cosmetology, to fit in any high-molecular proteins . One major firm on the Polish market recently publicized pre-EU accession research from the SCCNFP (an EU Scientific committee) showing that compounds, with a molecular weight greater than 1000, “get stuck” in the epidermis . Yet developments in biochemistry are encouraged with the pace allowed by the speed of the information age . Thus collagen created in the keratinocytes (and then in the epidermis) proceed with great ease to extracellular space . An identical thing happens in the extracellular matrix of the membranes of the stratum basal . Fish collagen hydrates (Natural Collagen) which is conformed to a spiral structure of 1,4nm to 120 nm, clearly can reach extracellular space . Its penetration of the epidermis and connection to the epidermal-dermal extracellular matrix is, today, no longer in dispute . No clinical research is required . Today the theory of an absolute ceiling on epidermal capacity is scoffed at by students practising on electron microscopes . Yet even now in Poland many doctors and cosmetologists have not the slightest idea about the extracellular matrix, nor the objective fact that it exists in all layers of the skin . There is much fascinating literature on the subject of the extracellular matrix, which is also known as ECM . There are other questions which likewise need to be understood and empirically accepted as important phenomena, such as: collagen’s ability to retain a helix structure outside its natural environment (that is inside a vertebrate organism), its ability to achieve a metabolic process once there as well as defining to what degree, and why, we speak at all of a “living” biologically active protein . One thing we can say about the ingenious discovery of fish collagen by Polish scientists is that those, who learn of its existence, are almost never indifferent . On the contrary, it produces enormous enthusiasm, bounding on euphoria or , conversely, extreme denial . Then who, instead of being sincerely happy that such a wonderful thing has come into the world and seeking to widen knowledge of it – would seek to criticize and deny?
• those who believe collagen will ruin their business
• those who receive the information in good faith, but not good knowledge
• those who receive the information, but not well enough or completely enough
• those who are immediately turned off by the collagen distribution system
Lets begin with the last one . There are many groups of experts who would shout the praises of the collagen phenomenon as loudly as they denounce it, had they heard about it from a doctor, pharmacist or even the advertising media . Anyone instead of a sister-in-law or neighbour who (oh the horror!!) actually sells it . It really is hard - but necessary - to tell people who are so hooked on the stereotype that, no this isn’t wine made by your sister-in- law, or your neighbour or even the distributor – this is true collagen . It is just that this particular product is a “living” protein which dies in the heat . One summer’s day in a shop with no air-conditioning, or even on the road to the shop and since, owing to its properties, it is not such a good idea to place collagen in shops, or even pharmacies, it makes no sense to entrust
it to advertisers or pharmacies . Whether or not someone likes direct selling or not, sometimes the nature of the product demands this form of distribution . After all no one is forcing this product . Its exactly the same with collagen . No advertisement is able to effectively present its benefits and importance as well a distributor who also uses it . Therefore it is necessary to present it to the receptive sceptic . A separate issue is the “quality” of knowledge about collagen . That is precisely the idea behind this . Armed with the valuable knowledge and very strong relevant arguments contained in this text, as the proponents of Polish fish collagen, you will be able to change the opinion of people imprisoned in stereotypes or limited by viewpoints which have been determined by out of date information. You will even change the minds of those who see collagen as the competition . How? By making them obsolete . So then, what’s the idea of this “living” collagen? Isn’t that overdoing it? It turns out that some people seek to trivialize the collagen molecule, by imagining it as something comparable to a sperm cell, breaking its way through the barrier protecting the epidermis, to eventually fertilize the fibroblast with a family of wee little collagenies.
Such a presentation is bound to arose laughter or offense in anyone who has even a smattering of biochemical, anatomical or cosmetological knowledge . The truth however, is otherwise . We all know that when a tree dies its leaves keep growing and its sap flows through its trunk, right up until the chain saw starts cutting . When a person dies their hair and nails (skin fragments) live, and even grow, for several more days . The development of life on Earth is based on proteins . They die completely when there peptide chains break down . Some primitive organisms are able to return their proteins to full vitality after long periods of complete hibernation . Bedbugs after two days and some bacteria after even two hundred years! How? Because the proteins that allow for their revival do not submit to degradation . When defining collagen it is clearly easy to start abusing semantics . But only in the case of the unschooled presenter . The fact is that what we are holding is actually living collagen Living because, despite being sealed in this cold glass, nearly dehydrated to a pulp, they still retain the same spiral structure which they obtained in the metabolic matrix process of the organism . Not many people gasp the essence of this phenomenon of Polish biochemistry , and it all comes down to this: the protein extracted from the skin of a fish eaten two years ago, continues to possess the identical conformation, according to its rank, as a fish just pulled from the net . All due to a process involving the lightning fast removal and freezing of the skin, (before the collagen molecules break down) followed by an extraordinarily delicate mechanical process, a slowly finessed chemical reaction, multiphase filtration and finally - something no laboratory in the world, outside the one in Gdansk, has been able to do – collagen which doesn’t lose its helical structure, and which comes out clean (though brittle and defenceless) . Next into a water solution and obediently into the jar . What could be better than several dozen tons of beef collagen, produced every year at varying quality, in different locations around the world? The differences are many – but the most important is that this is “living” collagen . It has a roughly lower molecular mass than bovine collagen, and reaches deeper after being applied to the epidermis . At the moment of contact with the human organism, it is not just a static bundle of “dead” amino acids, but a constantly ordered, three-core spiral . It isn’t until it reaches the stratum corneum of the epidermis that it is sliced into peptide chain parts . But this is another, and unusually fascinating story.’’
