Skin health doesn't just happen from creams and serums you apply to the top layer. Skin grows and repairs from the inside out, so it needs support from the inside out. A daily serving of 10g collagen peptides is a great foundation to adding support through diet.
Collagen is one of the building blocks of the connective tissue in your joints. Recent studies in trained individuals show promising results from collagen supplementation on joints, both in trained athletes and older individuals. Regardless of your background, joint health matters!
Collagen is rich in amino acids that your body needs to build keratin, the protein that makes up hair. While no human studies on the use of collagen to increase hair growth exist yet, it is an easy supplement to add into your daily routine.
Collagen occurs naturally in our skin. It's one of the building blocks that keeps our skin from sagging, and as everyone ages, your collagen density declines.
A recent study on 10g collagen/day showed an increase in skin collagen density & moisture. Each serving of our collagen peptides includes 10g collagen and 100% daily value of Vitamin C.
Like the skin, our joints and bones are also connective tissues. Since collagen is one of the building blocks of connective tissues, joints and bones will see a general decline in collagen as we age.
Recent studies on 10g collagen/day have showed decrease soreness in knee joints in athletes, and active individuals over the age of 40.
Why the Vitamin C?
We commonly get asked if our collagen peptides contain Vitamin C, or why they contain 100% daily value of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is required for the natural synthesis of collagen in our bodies. While most people get an adequate amount of Vitamin C per day for this natural process, we want to be sure everyone purchasing our collagen peptides gets the 100% daily value.
Our Vitamin C comes from an extract of acerola berries, and our collagen peptides are naturally sweetened with monk fruit. They have a mildly sweet flavor and mix easily into any flavored beverage.
