What does AminoLock® Collagen mean?

AminoLock® Sequential Technology applies a selection principle to create a high concentration of amino acid sequences.
This is an exclusive approach developed by our research and development division that increases collagen peptides using the highest biotechnical manufacturing standards.

AminoLock
This process provides excellent nutritional support to compensate for the reduction in collagen caused by the natural ageing process.

What’s more, this process makes Genacol original formula the only product on the market with such a high concentration of amino acids, with benefits that are supported by three clinical studies.

Why is collagen so important?

Collagen is a structural fibrous protein that makes up the white fibres (collagen fibres) of the skin, tendons, bones, cartilage and all connective tissue.
Collagen is the protein that makes up the support structure of the body.
As the body ages, it produces less and less collagen, leading to a deficiency that can result in osteoarthritis, joint pain, back pain, wrinkles, lack of energy, lack of flexibility and more.

This is why we recommend that you use Genacol products regularly to allow you to see meaningful results.
