Could Collagen Be the Key to Your Happiness?

Could Collagen Be the Key to Your Happiness?

We all know that beauty is skin deep, but what if I told you that you could improve not just the look of your skin, but also your tendons, bones, and joints; and that you could do it all with a single supplement? Though it may sound incredible, it's actually true! Collagen peptides have many benefits for the body, including helping to repair tendons, bones, and joints; as well as keeping the volume of the skin. In other words, collagen helps keep the skin looking young and prevents fine lines and wrinkles. In a 2019 review, skin elasticity and hydration improved when collagen hydrolysate supplement was used daily over a one to three month period. Another study found that improvements in appearance were only seen in women with a BMI of less than 25 after taking 2.5 milligrams of collagen hydrolysate per day for 180 days. Finally, one difficult condition from a dermatological standpoint is pressure ulcers which can be notoriously difficult to treat; however 89 long term care residents with moderate to severe pressure ulcers saw significant improvement after being treated with 15 grams of collagen hydrolysate 3 times per day for 56 days.

  • Collagen is a vital protein that works as the body's scaffolding. It has many benefits, such as helping to repair tendons and bones, keeping skin looking plump, and preventing fine lines and wrinkles.

  • A review published in 2019 found that skin elasticity and hydration improved when collagen hydrolysate supplement was used daily over a one to three month period. Another study found that improvements in appearance were only seen in women with a BMI of less than 25 after taking 2.5 milligrams of collagen hydrolysate per day for 180 days.

So what is this miracle supplement? Collagen is a protein found in animal tissue that makes up approximately 30% of the protein in our bodies. It is the most abundant protein in mammals, and is what gives our skin strength and elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which leads to the formation of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Supplementing with collagen can help to reverse these effects by providing our bodies with the building blocks it needs to produce more collagen.

There are many different types of collagen supplements on the market today, so how do you know which one is right for you? The most important thing to look for is hydrolyzed collagen, as this type has been shown to be the most bioavailable (meaning your body can actually use it). Within that category, there are several different options: marine-sourced collagen (derived from fish), bovine-sourced collagen (derived from cows), or porcine-sourced collagen (derived from pigs). Marine-sourced collagen is generally considered to be the best option as it contains higher levels of glycine and proline (amino acids needed for collagen production) than either bovine or porcine sources; however, some people prefer not to take animal-based supplements for ethical reasons. If that's the case for you, there are now several plant-based options on the market made from algae or other plant sources. Whichever type you choose, make sure you're getting a high-quality supplement from a reputable company. At EXCITE MY our Premium Collagen Complex has both marine-sourced and bovine-sourced hydrolyzed collagen.

Conclusion:

If you're interested in improving your health—inside and out—collagen may be just what you're looking for! This amazing supplement has many benefits for both our internal and external health, including joint repair, bone health, skin elasticity, and more. While there are many different types of collagen supplements available on the market today, marine-sourced collagen is generally considered to be the best option due to its high levels of glycine and proline. So what are you waiting for? Give our collagen a try today!
