Over the years, wear and tear on skin, hair, bone and joints become more prevalent. Ultimately, this wear and tear can result in dry and wrinkled skin, joint aches, and weakened bones. Our bodies depend on their natural collagen production to maintain skin elasticity and provide structural support in connective tissue and muscles and joints. However, as we age, the production of this vital protein begins to slow down—supplementing with collagen may help this issue. Pure Collagen offers a comprehensive collagen formula hydrolyzed into small bioactive peptides that support healthy collagen production throughout the body. *Often referred to as a “complex protein,” collagen contains a plethora of different amino acids, including hydroxyproline, which does not occur in other proteins, and is found everywhere in the body. Studies show that it is one of the most plentiful proteins in mammals as it is responsible for several biological functions. Because collagen is a unique type of protein accounting for as much as 30% of the body’s total protein, it is an essential component of our dietary regimen. Pure Collagen is especially unique because it offers 5g of hydrolyzed collagen, in an easy palatable on-the-go shot.*It is often assumed that collagen supplements can only benefit women versus men due to their association with beauty products, especially those offering lifting and firming benefits. While it is true that collagen is a great skin health supplement, this does not limit it to a specific gender; collagen’s powerful skin, bone and joint benefits are essential to both women and men’s health. As a matter of fact, studies show that daily use of collagen supplement may help maintain muscle strength, an important benefit to everyone. Pure Collagen makes for an easy on-the-go supplement due to its nifty packaging in small vials, convenient for both travel and work.*Pure Collagen can be taken by itself or can be mixed to your taste in 4-12 oz of water, allowing it to be as light or flavorful as you may like. You should consume one vial per day for optimal results.
Key Ingredients in Pure Collagen:
Hydrolyzed Collagen (porcine and fish) 5g:
Collagen is a structural protein (long chain of amino acids) found in our bodies. It is the most abundant protein in the body and has a unique amino acid profile. As such, collagen is a major component of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It provides structure to these areas and functions to hold all these things together. Many people think of it as a “glue” and actually the word collagen comes from the Greek word “kola”, which means glue. There are different types of collagen, but I, II, III are the major types and each can function in different aspects of the body. Primarily, collagen types I and III are grouped together because they are the most abundant and have similar functions. They are best for skin, hair, bone and muscle health. Studies have shown collagen peptides provide numerous beneficial effects on skin by helping to promote skin elasticity, thickness and hydration.
Other research shows the important role of collagen for bone health and strength. Type II collagen is heavily concentrated in cartilage and therefore has been shown as most effective for joint health. However, there is research that shows types I and III also have benefits on joint health. After collagen is absorbed in the body, it works in the various tissues where cells will build the peptides into complete collagen that support the areas that need it – skin, hair, bone, muscle, joint, etc. Hydrolyzed collagen peptides refer to collagen that has been broken down into much shorter chains of amino acids, which creates a form that is better absorbed into the bloodstream. As we age, collagen levels in the body decline, which helps explain the negative changes with regards to skin, hair, bones and muscles. Collagen supplementation is critical for healthy aging because of its unique role in helping to maintain and support the important aspects of skin, hair, bone, joint and muscle health!
