BodyMax6000 (Type I & III Collagen)
BodyMax6000 is a multi purpose protein that
offers many benefits because of its excellent
bioavailability. In this section we’re going to
talk about protein structure, cellular structure
and molecular structure (molecular weight).
Three very important properties that make up
the foundation and body of BodyMax6000.
There are four levels of protein structure .
These levels are distinguished from one an-
other by the degree of complexity in the poly-
peptide chain (linked amino acids). The four
levels of protein structure are primary, second-
ary, tertiary, and quaternary structure. A single
protein molecule may contain one or more of
these protein structure types.
The structure of a protein determines its func-
tion. For example, collagen has a super-coiled
helical shape. It is long, stringy, strong, and
resembles a rope. This structure is great for
Haemoglobin, on the other hand, is a globular
protein that is folded and compact. Its sphere-
icle shape is useful for manoeuvring through
blood vessels. Proteins are synthesized in the
body through a process called translation. Translation occurs in the cytoplasm and involves the translation of genetic codes, assembled during DNA transcription, into proteins. Cell structures called ribosomes help translate these genetic codes into polypeptide chains that undergo several modifications before becoming fully functioning proteins.
The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body. Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. For the transfer of force from muscle cells to bone, the proteins of extracellular matrix (ECM) , particularly collagen, are important. When muscles run out of energy during either aerobic or anaerobic respiration, the muscle quickly tires and loses its ability to contract. This condition is known as muscle fatigue. A fatigued muscle contains very little or no oxygen, glucose or ATP, but instead has many waste products from respiration, like lactic acid and ADP. The body must take in extra oxygen after exertion to replace the oxygen that was stored in myoglobin in the muscle fiber as well as to power the aerobic respiration that will rebuild the energy supplies inside of the cell. This explains why you feel out of breath for a few minutes after a strenuous activity—your body is trying to restore itself to its normal state.
As the largest protein in the body, collagen is a chain of 18 amino acids. Protein digestion of some dietary collagen supplements are often incomplete, resulting in some very large peptide chains. These long molecules are typically not well utilized in the body’s efforts to keep up with the declining production. BodyMax6000 is formulated with a more thorough pre-engineered protein breakdown process resulting in a more uniform result - thus a usable small chain of peptides and amino acids are ready to be utilized by the body.

BodyMax6000 is formulated at a molecular weight of approximately 3,000 Daltons. Proper molecular weight is very important as this allows the body to optimize and utilize the collagen molecule efficiently thereby rendering all the benefits that collagen has to offer. When we compare the concentration of amino acids in collagen found in human tissue and human cartilage with bovine hydrolyzed collagen, it is evident that they are almost identical. This is extremely important because their amino acid compositions function in a compatible nature with each other (bovines and humans) thus establishing a type of molecular blue print with each other. Therefore, the science of collagen suggests that bovine hydrolyzed collagen is more compatible with the human body and therefore works best for the human body. Natural protein (in every day foods otherwise known as essential amino acids) are different than collagen protein because of their own specific amino acid content. All of Fikzol's Type I & III products are from hydrolyzed bovine skin hide sources. Arginine in hydrolyzed collagen is found in much higher concentration. The biggest difference is found in glycine see collagen and beauty sleep and proline; in hydrolyzed collagen, these are three times higher than in other proteins.
BodyMax6000 focuses on 4 primary benefits: achieving gains in lean muscle mass, renewing and strengthening connective tissue, strengthening skeletal structure and increasing bone density. Additionally, BodyMax6000 has 2 secondary functions: arterial strengthening and weight management. The burning of fat (not burning carbohydrates and proteins) can be achieved in 2 very different ways: 1) taking BodyMax6000 in the day time before physical activity (1 hour away from food) and 2) taking BodyMax6000 before bedtime. Two very different times of day and 2 completely different regimens. Clearly physical activity (along with a balance diet) will achieve weight loss in a more expedited manner. However, the weight loss process is very slow when taking BodyMax6000 before bedtime. When following a before bedtime regimen, noticeable weight loss (along with a balanced diet) can take up to 3 to 6 months. Bear in mind weight loss results may vary depending on the individual.
How can collagen help you burn fat while sleeping? When taking hydrolyzed collagen before bedtime the collagen will be utilized by your body as a cellular healing partner assisting your body in the cellular healing process. This process is ongoing throughout the night while we are asleep which is why we feel great in the morning when we get a good nights rest. Your body does much of its cellular healing work in its first stage of sleep. The first 60 to 90 minutes of sleep are a period of repair and healing in the body. It is at this stage where the collagen is most effective in assisting your body to heal while you are sleeping. When taken at night, it strengthens lean muscle tissue and stimulates the burning of fat. Collagen draws energy from fat cells to continue the cellular healing process while you sleep.
Hydrolyzed collagen also has a high concentration of glycine and promotes the release of growth hormone which all contributes to cellular healing and burning fat while you are sleeping. see collagen and beauty sleep.
BodyMax6000 is made from high grade gelatin, which is extracted from bovine hides via an advanced enzymatic process. Without heat and acids, the bio-compatible integrity of the finished molecules will be guaranteed. As mentioned earlier BodyMax6000 renders a molecular weight of approximately 3,000 Daltons. The average size of a human cell varies quite a lot. A single nerve cell can be up to a meter long while a cheek cell averages about 50 micrometers or .05 mm. The average cell though is between 10 microns and 100 microns. By way of contrast, the neurons connecting our brains to our legs can reach lengths of over a meter. A micron is 1 / 1 millionth of a meter. A dalton is a measure of mass whereas a micron is a measure of distance. A quality hydrolyzed collagen molecule to be absorbed properly by the human cell must fall well within the size of the human cell. BodyMax6000’s hydrolyzation process allows it’s collagen molecule to successfully meet the body’s absorption demands and parameters to achieve all the wonderful benefits Fikzol's BodyMax6000 has to offer.
