Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that is found in the body and is essential for the health of our skin, hair, nails, and joints. It’s the most abundant protein in our bodies and makes up about 30% of the total protein found in our bodies.

One of the biggest benefits of consuming collagen is that it helps to improve the health and appearance of our skin. Collagen is responsible for giving our skin its elasticity and firmness, and as we age, our bodies produce less collagen. This can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. By consuming collagen, we can help to support our bodies natural collagen production and keep our skin looking youthful and radiant.

Useful properties of COCONUT BARS:

Coconut bars are rich in such vitamins and minerals as: vitamin A - 15.7%, beta-carotene - 17%, vitamin B1 - 24.4%, vitamin B5 - 12.9%, vitamin B9 - 20.2%, vitamin E - 32.2%, vitamin PP - 39.5%, potassium - 30.6%, silicon - 21%, magnesium - 30.8%, phosphorus - 31%, iron - 20.2%, cobalt - 12, 4%, manganese - 92.4%, copper - 55.8%, zinc - 16.6%

Benefits of coconut bars

Vitamin A is responsible for normal development, reproductive function, skin and eye health, and immune support.

B-carotene is a provitamin A and has antioxidant properties. 
6 micrograms of beta-carotene are equivalent to 1 microgram of vitamin A.

Vitamin B1 is part of the most important enzymes of carbohydrate and energy metabolism, providing the body with energy and plastic substances, as well as the metabolism of branched-chain amino acids. 
The lack of this vitamin leads to serious disorders of the nervous, digestive and cardiovascular systems.

Vitamin B5 is involved in protein, fat, carbohydrate metabolism, cholesterol metabolism, and the synthesis of a number of hormones, and hemoglobin promotes the absorption of amino acids and sugars in the intestine and supports the function of the adrenal cortex. 
A lack of pantothenic acid can lead to damage to the skin and mucous membranes.

Vitamin B9, as a coenzyme, is involved in the metabolism of nucleic and amino acids. 
Folate deficiency leads to disruption of the synthesis of nucleic acids and protein, resulting in inhibition of cell growth and division, especially in rapidly proliferating tissues: bone marrow, intestinal epithelium, etc. Insufficient folate intake during pregnancy is one of the causes of prematurity, malnutrition, congenital deformities, and developmental disorders in the child. A strong relationship was shown between the level of folate, homocysteine, and the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin E has antioxidant properties, is necessary for the functioning of the gonads and the heart muscle, and is a universal stabilizer of cell membranes. With a deficiency of vitamin E, hemolysis of erythrocytes and neurological disorders are observed.

Potassium is the main intracellular ion involved in the regulation of water, acid, and electrolyte balance and is involved in the conduction of nerve impulses and pressure regulation.

Silicon is included as a structural component in the composition of glycosaminoglycans and stimulates the synthesis of collagen.

Magnesium is involved in energy metabolism, the synthesis of proteins, and nucleic acids have a stabilizing effect on membranes and are necessary to maintain calcium, potassium, and sodium homeostasis. Lack of magnesium leads to hypomagnesemia and an increased risk of developing hypertension and heart disease.

Phosphorus is involved in many physiological processes, including energy metabolism, regulates the acid-base balance, is part of phospholipids, nucleotides, and nucleic acids, and is necessary for the mineralization of bones and teeth. 
Deficiency leads to anorexia, anemia, and rickets.

Iron is a component of various proteins, including enzymes. 
Participates in the transport of electrons and oxygen, ensuring the occurrence of redox reactions and activation of peroxidation. 
Insufficient consumption leads to hypochromic anemia, myoglobin deficiency atony of skeletal muscles, increased fatigue, myocardiopathy, and atrophic gastritis.

Cobalt is part of vitamin B12. 
Activates the enzymes of fatty acid metabolism and folic acid metabolism.

Manganese is involved in the formation of bone and connective tissue and is part of the enzymes involved in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates, catecholamines; 
necessary for the synthesis of cholesterol and nucleotides. 
Insufficient consumption is accompanied by growth retardation, disorders in the reproductive system, increased fragility of bone tissue, and disorders of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.

Copper is part of the enzymes that have redox activity and are involved in the metabolism of iron, stimulating the absorption of proteins and carbohydrates. 
Participates in the processes of providing tissues of the human body with oxygen. 
Deficiency is manifested by violations of the formation of the cardiovascular system and skeleton and the development of connective tissue dysplasia.

Zinc is part of more than 300 enzymes and is involved in the synthesis and breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and nucleic acids and in the regulation of the expression of a number of genes. 
Insufficient intake leads to anemia, secondary immunodeficiency, liver cirrhosis, sexual dysfunction, and fetal malformations. 
Recent studies have revealed the ability of high doses of zinc to disrupt the absorption of copper and thereby contribute to the development of anemia.
