COLLAGEN – THE BACKGROUND STORY
Collagen is a structural protein and a very important one! It amounts to 30% of all proteins in the body, which makes it the most abundant of them all.
Collagen is also the single most important component in all connective tissues, from the smallest cell to the biggest human organ, the skin.
Therefore the collagen level in the body has effects that are both visible – skin, hair and nails, and invisible – overall health-state, cell-repair cycles, bone density and fat-metabolism.
On average a healthy human body produces collagen until around the age of 40. But a decrease in this natural production may already begin in the 20s!
Usually by the age of 60 the natural collagen production has dropped to a point when a full compensation is no longer possible.
The effects that come with declining collagen levels are again visible as well as invisible.
The most obvious one is on the skin: As the collagen matrix in the dermis degenerates it breaks up and increasingly loses its capacity to maintain hydration.
Consequently the skin feels thinner, loses its elasticity and forms wrinkles and dry patches. A lack of collagen will also show in the hair and the nails.
Less visible but maybe even more important are the effects on cartilage in the joints, on ligaments and tendons, on the duration of repair cycles and muscle regeneration.
In summary it is fair to say that a reduced collagen level will affect both the outward appearance and the overall physical wellbeing.
However, while these consequences are perfectly natural and will eventually catch up with all of us they can be slowed down and or even interrupted for a limited time!
The key is to provide your body with collagen from outside! Because not only is it possible to replenish the depleted depots, the intake of collagen from the outside will even stimulate the body’s very own natural collagen production!
QWELL COLLAGEN WATER – SCIENCE AT WORK
The patent-pending production process of qwell collagen water utilizes only the purest water and the highest-grade Peptan® collagen. Peptan® collagen consists of carefully controlled natural bioactive peptides of unique purity that are taste- and odor-neutral.
Peptan® collagen peptides are manufactured in a gentle enzymatic process to ensure the precise degree of hydrolysis and optimal molecular weight that is essential for a rapid absorption and transportation in the body to where they are most effective.
But on top of replenishing the body’s own natural collagen depots drinking qwell collagen water also stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production. It is this dual action that makes qwell a very effective contributor for rebuilding your collagen matrix! Studies show that this is the most effective way to ensure a sufficient collagen level.
So by drinking qwell daily you can rebuild and sustain your collagen matrix for a youthful looking healthy skin. And at the same time qwell will help to protect the infrastructure of your musculoskeletal system which is essential for your mobility.

28% skin hydration enhancement with qwell collagen water
Studies show that from the age of 20 the skin loses 1% of its collagen every year. As the collagen matrix in the dermis degenerates it becomes brittle and increasingly loses its capacity to sustain hydration. Consequently the skin gets thinner, loses elasticity and starts to sag and wrinkle. However, the naturally reduced collagen level is not the only cause for aging skin! Environmental pollution, an unhealthy lifestyle, UV rays – there are many more factors that can damage collagen fibers, limit hyaluronic acid production and therefore lead to decreased skin moisture.
Removes the bags under the eyes
Reduces the depth and size of wrinkles
Slows skin aging
qwell collagen water is specifically designed to effectively compensate collagen deprivation and its effects.
A double-blind placebo-controlled trial with 33 middle aged women in Japan showed that the Peptan® collagen (used in qwell!) increased skin hydration by 28% after eight weeks. 91% of this research group reported a higher skin hydration level during the same period.
So qwell collagen water with Peptan® peptides will support the structural integrity of the skin’s collagen matrix which is key to a youthful, healthy appearance.
ALWAYS GOING STRONG. WITH QWELL COLLAGEN WATER.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and the key component in all connective tissues – it is a major building block for the skin, the bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It basically provides the infrastructure of the entire musculoskeletal system and is therefore essential for your mobility.
That is why consuming qwell collagen water regularly will help you to achieve significant health benefits like enhanced bone density, reduced joint pain after exercising, quicker muscle regeneration and consequently an overall improved fitness level.
Everyone knows about the importance of always staying hydrated. With qwell from now on staying hydrated comes with an extra benefit!
QWELL LEADING INNOVATION
qwell is a true next-generation functional beverage. Its recipe is unique – with its combination of premium collagen and pure water qwell is the first of its kind. It is special also because of the high-end production and the scientific approach.
But what makes qwell really innovative is the thinking behind the brand! As a product qwell is 100% designed to answer to the demands of todays consumers! qwell is convenient because it combines two essential elements in one product. qwell is accessible because it is inexpensive and open to everybody – hedonists and party-people, athletes and health-nerds, women and man, young and old.
The truth is, we want you and you and you to feel just qwell!
And that’s the real innovation behind qwell.

REINFORCED SKIN AFTER JUST ONE MONTH
A clinical trial carried out in France by COSderma and involving 106 women showed that after a 4-week Peptan® consumption, collagen breakage in deep skin layers significantly decreased. After 12 weeks of Peptan® usage, lower levels of collagen fragmentation were observed compared to the start of the study. Recovered skin is the result of the action of Peptan®, it increases collagen levels, which contributes to improving the condition of the skin and restoring its youthful and pleasant look.
New study reveals the benefit of collagen peptides for sports recovery.
A recent study, performed by the Newcastle University, UK, has brought to light the benefits of collagen peptides for sports recovery. It underscores the value of collagen supplements for healthand fitness, suggesting that collagen contributes to more rapid post-exercise recovery and performance improvement.
The study was designed as a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlledtrial, involving 24 active young men. The results were very clear: Supplementation with the collagen peptides clearly lowered the perceived muscle soreness at all time points after the intense muscle-damaging exercise. Even more strikingly, the Peptan supplemented participants demonstrated an improved performance with the effect reaching statistical significance at 48h post exercise. This positive outcome indicatesthat Peptan helps to accelerate the process of recovery frommuscle damage induced by intense exercise. Since collagen is a key component of the extracellular matrix sheath that enwraps the muscle fibers, it is conceivable that Peptan supplementation might either prevent damage to the sheath or allow it to repair more quickly.
Muscle Soreness (by VAS score)
Figure 2: Muscle soreness was recorded on a VAS scale for pain after the performance of a squat (90° knee flexion) before and after a session of intense exercise by 24 participants supplemented with either Peptan or a placebo
Performance(by countermovement jump height)
Figure 3: Performance was measured by the height of a countermovement jump (knee flexion of 90° and jumping up as high as possible) before and after a session of intense exercise in 24 participants supplemented with either Peptan or a placebo.
Good news for athlets as well as casual users
This study proves thatcollagen peptides can reduce the recovery time after physical activity. The outcome clearly indicates that athletes can use Peptan® to maintain a high level of performance after a period of activity.
