Collagen is the new black

We live in an age where we want everything STRONGER, BETTER, FASTER - but those expectations are unrealistic & especially when we talk about skin health - from the inside out. Results from drinking water & supplementing is often subtle but definitely real! We wanted to sound off on a favourite of ours - COLLAGEN 🙌🏼: this anti-aging angel is an essential protein that serves as a natural building block within our bodies. It basically holds us all together and is found in our bones, muscles, skin, and tendons, adding strength and structure. As we get older, collagen gets depleted, which is why we start to notice a lack of elasticity and an increase in things like wrinkles and lines. Plus outside factors like sun, smoking, and sugar can also inhibit collagen production 🙅🏻‍♀️🚬 ☀️🍭! Let’s relate to skin now - the primary difference between collagen protein and other proteins is the amino acid profile. All protein contains amino acids that our bodies use to rebuild and restore. However, collagen is unique in that it contains higher levels of three important amino acids: proline, hydroxyproline, and glycine—all of which play an important role in helping to revitalize your skin, hair, nails, and joints. Additionally, it's great for gut and bone health 💪🏼 - an overall great addition to your supplement line-up!
