Prostate & FOY
Heber Bartolome, a rock icon in the Philippines, has been experiencing issues with his prostate, a common problem for men over 50. In Heber's case, however he was hospitalized for over 3 months and had a catheter inserted. After taking Fountain of Youth Collagen for a little over a week, he was discharged from the hospital, got back to jamming with his band and is playing golf again.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is found in our muscles, bones, skin and tendons and is referred to as the ‘glue’ that helps hold the body together. It also gives our skin strength and elasticity, and helps replace dead skin cells.
Collagen is also full of conditional amino acids like arginine, glutamine, glycine and proline. These are amino acids that, under normal circumstances, are produced by your body. However, when you’re sick, under stress or otherwise unhealthy, your body may not be able to produce enough of these amino acids on its own. It needs help from outside sources (your diet or supplements) to get its fill. And these ‘nonessential’ amino acids are actually quite important. Proline and glycine, in particular, play a major role in ensuring your body’s running smoothly.
Proline makes up almost 15 percent of collagen. It also helps your artery walls release fat buildup in the bloodstream, shrinking the fat in the arteries and minimizing fat accumulation. Healthy arteries equal a healthy heart! Glycine also makes up a major portion of collagen. And while size-wise it’s the smallest amino acid, big things come in small packages, and glycine is no exception. To ensure our cells function properly, it helps build healthy DNA strands. It’s also one of three amino acids that form creatine, which promotes healthy muscle growth and boosts energy production during work outs.
