The BODY PROTEIN mechanism
The exact mechanism of DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE is still subject of ongoing research, but current data suggest, that the mode of action is based on the multifactorial impact of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® on various metabolic processes and the overall functional unit of muscle: e.g. muscle and fat metabolism.
Recent investigations revealed, DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE significantly stimulates the mTOR pathway.
Availability and activity of this key protein are essential for protein metabolism. The protein metabolism ensures balance between protein synthesis and protein degradation. More synthesis than breakdown indicates an anabolic state that builds lean tissues, higher breakdown than synthesis indicates a catabolic state that decreases lean tissues.
Also, DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE influences fat metabolism. A sufficient energy supply is mandatory for the proliferation of muscle cells and the synthesis of new muscle tissue. The AMPK enzyme is responsible for energy transfer in the muscle cells. The stimulation of AMPK leads to an increase in fatty acid metabolism, which provides more energy for the cells and results in a reduction of fat mass. Due to its specific amino acid composition and its excellent bioavailability. DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE stimulates fat and muscle metabolisms, finally leading to an improved body composition.
Studies confirm the efficacy of DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE (‘Body Balance’ is the registered name of the peptide complex.)
Several randomized, placebo-controlled, double blinded studies have demonstrated the efficacy and potential of the daily intake of 15 g of DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE in combination with resistance training.
In the latest studies 2,3, the effect of post-exercise supplementation on lean body mass, fat mass and muscle strength in combination with resistance training was tested. 114 healthy, physically inactive men aged 35-60 participated.
The primary outcome was to compare 15 g DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE supplementation with placebo. Changes in body composition were measured by DXA scans. DXA represents the “Gold Standard” in body composition measurement. Total body scans using DXA give a precise measurement of body composition, including bone mass, lean body mass and fat mass.
In addition, muscle strength, waist circumference and various blood parameters were determined. The results of the primary endpoint of the study revealed a statistically significant (p<0.05) increase in lean body mass after supplementation compared to placebo.
The positive effect was also reflected in the results of the secondary study criteria. DERMACLINICAL MY BODY YOUNGER – COLLAGEN HYDROSOLATE treatment led to an improved muscle strength, a reduction of waist circumference and a statistically significant fat mass reduction (p<0.05), after collagen peptide intake.
During a research based on focus group discussion conducted 2015 in the US, the UK and Germany, our researchers investigated the mindset of the following three target groups:
Men and women between 25 and 35 years, user of protein products
Determined, young and ambitious
Young males are interested in muscle gain – for visual effects but also increasing strength.
Women are interested in losing weight or shaping and toning. Also the so-called ‘generation fitness’ is convinced that working on its appearance is expected from society. So, the physical appearance is by far one of the main drivers!
