CollaGEN provides high-quality type I and II collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid and key cofactors to support collagen production. The powder formula can be mixed with any hot or cold beverage.
This formula contains collagen peptides that are enzymatically reduced to the smallest particle possible to enhance absorption and activity in the target tissue. These peptide fragments are considered "bioactive" because of their enhanced biological activity.
- Skin, hair, and nails
- Tendons and ligaments
- Cartilage and joints
- Bone strength
The 7 top potential benefits of Collagen supplementation:
1. Supplements Help Replace What’s Naturally Lost Through Aging
Collagen is the “glue” that holds your body together.. It makes up about one-third of the protein in your body. Your body produces less collagen starting in your thirties and forties. Collagen peptides added to your diet may serve to replace what your body begins to lack as you age and support your overall health.
2. Collagen Is an Easy-to-Digest Source of Protein
Collagen supplements are hydrolyzed, meaning the collagen is broken down, a process that makes it easy for your body to digest. The process of hydrolyzing also allows collagen peptides to dissolve in water, which makes it relatively simple to use them in everyday foods (like water or smoothies).
3. Collagen Helps Smooth Wrinkles and Boost Elasticity in Skin
Skin health is the most well-researched benefit of taking collagen. In a January 2019 review in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, researchers analyzed 11 randomized, placebo-controlled studies of more than 800 patients who took up to 10 grams (g) per day of collagen with the goal of improving skin health. The results? The supplements were shown to improve skin elasticity, help it better hold onto moisture, and rev the density of collagen fibers within the skin. Ten grams per day could be a small step in preserving a youthful appearance.
4. Collagen May Help Lessen Joint Aches and Pains
Joint pain can make it difficult to exercise which can knock you off the path toward your goals. Taking a collagen supplement may help you get back on track. Oral collagen may support cartilage repair and may also have an anti-inflammatory effect.
5. Oral Supplements May Promote Gut Health
In inflammatory digestive conditions, such as irritable bowel disease (IBD), there is a “gut healing” theory about collagen.
6. Collagen May Buoy Your Heart Health
Researchers think that collagen may help fortify blood vessel walls to reduce the risk of artery disease.
7. Peptides Can Keep Bones Healthy
Bone mineral density decreases as you age, especially after menopause. In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial on 102 post-menopausal women, participants who took collagen peptides for one year increased their bone mineral density compared with the control group. Researchers postulated that this was because collagen stimulated bone formation while slowing down bone loss.
