Did you know that the only way to replenish collagen is by ingesting it in your diet? Topical collagen creams are simply not effective. However, recent studies have shown that consuming the right type of collagen supplement, whether collagen pills or collagen powder, can noticeably improve skin elasticity. Specifically, this means reducing wrinkles by up to 20%! And that’s just the beginning of the important health and beauty benefits hydrolyzed collagen provides.
At its core, collagen is an essential building block of most tissues and organs in the body – from skin, muscles, bones, and joints to blood vessels and internal organs, such as the heart and lungs (to name a few). Collagen exists in the body as a vast network of fibers that, pound for pound, are stronger than steel cables. And it’s these fibers that weave together (like threads) to create the fabric of the human body. Facial beauty requires this of its collagen supplement, as well as hair and nails appearance, too.
Collagen Depletion Solution
From a health standpoint, it’s important to understand that collagen always weakens and diminishes as we age. On average, collagen levels in the skin decrease by 1-2% per year – reducing skin elasticity, skin moisture and skin “plumpness” over time. But skin changes and reducing wrinkles are just the tip of the iceberg. Collagen depletion occurs throughout the entire inner body and is intimately linked to the aging process.
So what can you do to rebuild collagen now? Of course, you can try eating more collagen- containing foods. But this is inefficient at best, as it’s nearly impossible to get enough collagen from the diet alone. Not only that, collagen in its natural food state is much too large and complex to absorb into the bloodstream.
A better way to replenish low collagen is by consuming “hydrolyzed” collagen. Hydrolyzed collagen is a special type of highly-absorbable collagen that has been broken down into its subunits (called peptides and amino acids). Ultimately these subunits are responsible for imparting collagen’s beneficial effects. Once they reach the bloodstream, they stimulate collagen-producing cells (called fibroblasts, chondroblast and osteoblasts) and thereby promote new collagen synthesis throughout the inner body.
Of course, most people are very familiar with collagen’s skin benefits. But collagen is much more than just a skin nutrient. It’s an incredible tool for healthy aging. Hydrolyzed collagen can impact the fabric of the entire body and boost healthy collagen production in meaningful ways. Knowing this, consider making collagen an integral part of your daily health routine. Take a look at our full line of Youtheory® Collagen supplements.
