The Codeage team is excited to announce the release of the new Codeage Liposomal Collagen Peptides + in a powder format.
This new collagen formula adds another great choice for those looking for an advanced collagen product in our collagen collection.
This new formula is different than the others as it features a liposomal delivery mechanism for the collagen.
Collagen and collagen peptides
Collagen is a type of protein that is found in the body. It can play a role in the strength and elasticity of the skin, bones, and other connective tissues. Collagen production may decline with age. There are several ways to help with collagen production and/or collagen levels, including eating collagen-rich foods such as bone broth or certain types of fish.
Collagen peptides are known as chains of amino acids that can play a role in the structural support of skin, hair, nails, and joints. Collagen peptides may also be a source of protein, and they may help with energy levels among other properties.
There are different types of collagen and each type may play a different role for our organism.
Liposomal delivery is a process by which nutrients or therapeutic agents are encapsulated within liposomes. This process has historically been used to try to alter degradation and allows for a different absorption of specific agents. Liposomes are small, spherical vesicles that are made up of a phospholipid bilayer. The phospholipids are arranged in such a way that the hydrophobic (water-repelling) tails face inward, while the hydrophilic (water-attracting) heads face outward. This creates a lipid bilayer that is capable of forming stable vesicles.
The liposomal delivery process begins with the preparation of the liposomes. Phospholipids and other molecules can be usually mixed together in an organic compound. This forms a lipid film on the surface of the water. The film can then be sonicated, which creates small vesicles that are about 200 nanometers in size. The vesicles are then purified and centrifuged to remove any unwanted material.
The final step in this specific liposomal delivery process example is loading the nutrients or agents into the vesicles. This is done by dissolving the agents in an aqueous solution, such as saline or buffered water. The nutrients-containing solution is then added to the purified liposomes, and they are mixed together. The resulting mixture is then incubated for a period of time, typically overnight, to allow the nutrients to diffuse into the vesicles.
This is just a general description of one type of liposomal delivery process. There are many different processes and techniques that exist today and they can be used interchangeably depending on many different variables such as their intent and why they are used for. Codeage offers different formulas with a liposomal delivery such as our liposomal turkesterone and our liposomal magnesium.
Liposomal collagen powder
Codeage Liposomal Collagen Peptides + comes in a powder format and offers 2 types of collagen: type 1 collagen and type 3 collagen.
This liposomal collagen formula also features vitamin C and comes with a liposomal delivery matrix from non-GMO sunflower oil. It also contains quercetin phytosome.
Codeage Liposomal Collagen Peptides + is non-GMO and unflavored. It can easily be mixed in beverages or other food recipes.
