NOWAY® BODYBALANCE has excellent bioavailability and bio-efficacy

NOWAY® BODYBALANCE® is a specific unique combination of bioactive dietary peptides from hydrolyzed bovine collagen. What this means to you is that you will be taking a highly biologically available protein, which has been already broken down into a highly absorbable form.

What is a peptide?
Peptides are compounds consisting of two or more amino acids linked in a chain.

The protein chain is made up of amino acids but does more than just the sum of its parts. Peptides can have a function; they can activate or induce an action.*

It is important to understand that peptides have an effect in addition to the amino acid profile.

Many people will assess protein quality or protein score by the amino acid profile and disregard the other beneficial effects from the peptides.

For example:
Insulin and human growth hormone are peptides and have a much larger effect than the amino acids they contain. They are major chemicals that regulate our growth and metabolism and so many functions in our body.

Then consider that gluten and casein are also peptides contained in wheat and dairy respectively and they can have a major negative or positive impact in some cases and neutral effects in others, but either way, their effects cannot be predicted by their amino acid profile.

Therefore, it is important to understand that every collagen product is different depending on the contained peptides (if any at all). Specific bioactive collagen peptides need to be studied to understand what effect each different version will have. Not all collagen is alike and specific hydrolyzed collagen peptides be assessed by their amino acid profile alone.

So what is BODYBALANCE hydrolyzed collagen peptides?
BODYBALANCE is a form of hydrolyzed protein made from collagen. Protein is made up of chains of amino acids. Hydrolyzing protein basically means breaking down these chains. If you hydrolyze completely you get the individual amino acids. If you stop the hydrolyzing process before it has completely degraded the protein; you will find peptides (smaller chains of amino acids still joined together).

Noway Bodybalance is highly bioavailable for easy and great absorption.
NOWAY® BODYBALANCE® is made using a unique process recreating a digestive process with specific acids and enzymes capable of making a specific functioning peptide blend. This means half the digestion work has been done for you!

Hydroxyproline is a component of collagen and can be used as a marker to predict the rate of absorption of collagen peptides and amino acids.

Figure 1. The bioactive peptides are absorbed intact within minutes bypassing across the mucosal barrier as a complete peptide that is no longer subject to enzymatic cleavage. This is rapidly followed by a high peak of systemic amino acids.

Collagen as a “gut-friendly” protein
Collagen is “Dairy free”; no milk and therefore no lactose and no casein. Many people are intolerant to dairy and experience bloating or gastric upset and even extra mucous and sinus in many cases. Collagen is dairy free.

Many legume-based plant proteins inhibit amylase and thereby contribute to fermentation of sugars rather than digestion, hence why beans can make you fart. A lot of legume plant-based proteins contribute to bloating and gas production.

Feed the Collagen in your Body
percentage of collagen

30% of the protein in the body is collagen.
10% of skeletal muscle mass is made up of collagen.
30% of muscle power is generated by this connective tissue.
25% of the cell nuclei in muscle cells originate from connective tissue fibroblasts.

Tendon: collagenous tissue that connects muscle and bone

Endomysium: collagenous tissue that wraps every single muscle fiber

Perimysium: collagenous connective tissue that bundles several muscle fibers

Epimysium: collagenous connective tissue that wraps the whole muscle

Fascia: collagenous connective tissue that covers the entire muscle, located over the layer of epimysium

Collagen is a structural protein and the main component of connective tissue
Were you aware that collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body? 30% of all the protein in your body is made of collagen² NOWAY® BODYBALANCE® is a hydrolyzed collagen protein, meaning it feeds the 30% of your body protein.

Imagine a bee hive. The honeycomb is the infrastructure that holds the honey. The limiting factor to how much honey can be held in the hive is proportional to the amount of compartments in the honeycomb. Collagen supports the honeycomb and dietary protein and amino acids helps to fill that infrastructure. Collagen supports the infrastructure to make it possible to hold the muscle. If you focus on loading the body with protein for muscle and not build the infrastructure it needs, it will overflow and go straight through. In terms of anatomy and physiology that relates to excretion or retention of nitrogen. *[i]

Acid: Base balance NOWAY® BODYBALANCE® has a net alkalizing effect in the body.

Unique amino acid profile
(these include high amounts of hydroxyproline, bioavailable arginine and glycine)

Hydroxyproline is relatively unique to collagen.

There is very little or no dietary hydroxyproline supplied from plants, dairy, or other proteins unless you consume large quantities of collagen (Connective Tissue) in meats and bones. Hydroxyproline is one of the major amino acids found in collagen protein.
