What is Collagen?
Collagen is what holds our bodies together, maintains elasticity, and regenerates new tissue. This rough fibrous material known as connective tissue makes up skin, hair, & muscles, including tendons, cartilage, and bone. It makes up 70 % of the protein in the skin, and 30% of the body, making it an obvious choice for those with an active lifestyle seeking anti-aging benefits.
Not only is collagen found in the bodies of humans, but it is also found in the connective tissue of animals and fish. For this reason, consuming animal or fish skins can significantly improve your body’s ability to maintain healthy collagen tissue for beautiful skin and healthy bones.
Animal-derived collagen can originate from multiple sources, including skin (for example, chicken or salmon skin), bones (bone broth), and tendons (including chicken feet). By consuming dietary collagen, derived from animal or marine protein, we can increase collagen in our own body.
Symptoms of Collagen deficiency
Collagen declines approximately 1.5% per year starting in our twenties. That is about a 25% drop in Collagen by the time people reach their 40’s.
“As the body ages, it doesn’t build collagen the same way it used to. We knew this was an issue we needed to solve.”
Low collagen symptoms in the body to look out for:
- Early Signs of Aging (wrinkles, sagging).
- Joint Pain
- Weak Muscles
- Injury Prone
- Low Bone Density
- High Blood Pressure
- Dry Skin
- Brittle, Dull Hair
- Weak Nails
- GI Tract Issues (leaky gut)
Why do we need collagen in our diet?
Since collagen is a structural protein in the body, it’s vitally important for promoting healthy:
- Skin, hair, and nails
Research by The Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology resulted in collagen peptides treatment promoted an increase in nail growth rate. Additionally, 64% of participants achieved a global clinical improvement in brittle nails, and 88% of participants experienced an improvement 4 weeks post-treatment. Similar mind-blowing studies were conducted on Collagen’s ability to increase hair growth and reduce premature aging.
Collagen is unique from other protein, being high in specific amino acids. Marine Collagen Peptides are especially high in glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline.
“Our research revealed that the marine collagen’s unique amino acid structure was an important part of increasing chondrocytes; critical in collagen building cycle, not like any other protein.”
Why is collagen effective for active lifestyles?
Collagen positively enhances joint mobility and pain management both during and after physical activity.
“The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of specific collagen peptides in reducing pain in athletes with functional knee problems during sport. The results revealed a statistically significant improvement in activity-related pain intensity.”
Comparing Collagen to Whey and Plant Protein
Consuming whey protein, plant protein and muscle meat proteins provide you with healthy amounts of amino acids. However, these proteins are not as high in those specific amino acids (glycine, proline, hydroxyproline) that largely make up collagen.
How to increase collagen in the body naturally
Some of the following proteins, fruits, and vegetables either boost collagen or can prevent collagen breakdown:
- Wild Salmon
- Whole Grain
- Bone Broth
- Leafy green vegetables
- Chia Seeds
“As you age, however, your body may no longer absorb nutrients as well or synthesize them as efficiently,” Dr. Bradley says. “To make sure your body has enough ingredients to make collagen, you may need to change what you eat or take dietary supplements.”
Do Collagen supplements work?
Yes, but not all Collagen supplements are created equal.
That is why we did our homework at Active Beauty. We have formulated the most superior collagen that is extremely effective and easy to use.
