Benefits of Collagen Peptides

Have you been wondering about collagen and if you can benefit from it?

Well in this article we will look at Collagen Peptides. How you can supplement with them and the benefits to be reaped as a result.

Alright, so let's get into it.

What Are Collagen Peptides?

First things first. What is Collagen? Collagen is the primary structural protein that literally holds our bodies together. It is made up of 19 amino acids most notably; glycine, proline, alanine, hydroxyproline, and glutamine.

Collagen is a major component in the structure and strength of our bones, ligaments, and tendons. Where it provides the elasticity and resilience of our skin, hair, and nails.

How Do We Supplement With Collagen Peptides?

You can take it “straight” through collagen gelatin. Alternatively, you can also take it through Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides, where the Collagen is broken down into smaller amino acid chains. What that means to you, is that your body can typically absorb the peptides much easier and more completely. Thereby allowing your body to reap all the benefits collagen has to offer.

Some of the reported benefits of collagen are:

  • Improving skin, hair, and nails
  • Relief of joint and tendon pain
  • Increasing muscle mass and fat loss
  • Improving digestive health
  • Reducing cellulite
  • Mitigating bone loss
  • Promoting heart health

With collagen being such a major component of our body’s structure it would make sense that supplementing with it would help to improve a wide range of areas for our bodies.

A Deeper Dive Into The Benefits of Collagen Peptides?

Now let's take a deeper look into the benefits of collagen peptides

A recent study of women supplementing with 2.5- 5 grams a day for an eight-week period showed improvements in skin elasticity and hydration, as compared to those who did not [1]

Studies on Athletic Performance

A study published back in 2008, followed 147 athletes both male and female over a 24-week period. The purpose was to see “the effects of collagen hydrolysate on activity-related joint pain in athletes who are physically active and have no evidence of joint disease.” The main findings were, that supplementing with collagen can support joint health and reduce athletic-related joint pain. Thereby helping to improve athletic performance. [2]

Furthermore, a very interesting and detailed study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, showed how collagen peptide supplementation in combination with resistance training helped to increase muscle mass. [3]
This makes sense, because of what we know about protein and amino acid supplementation to help increase muscle mass.

The takeaway here is, using collagen peptides throughout the day is a perfect way to boost your overall protein intake.

There are many other studies and articles on the benefits of collagen. Far too many to cover here, but the consensus seems to be that everyone, especially athletes, can gain from supplementing with collagen on a regular basis.

Why Nutrex's COLLAGEN?

Now we know what collagen is and its benefits. Why should you choose Nutrex’s Collagen Peptides?

Our high-quality collagen peptides provide both Bovine Collagen Types I and III, plus, Marine Collagen Peptides. The actual collagen protein has already been hydrolyzed and broken down into smaller, easy-to-absorb bioactive particles. Providing you with a more complete spectrum, higher absorption, and bioavailability.

Collagen is the main structural protein in the human body and is a major component of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments, and supports cartilage. As you age, your body processes less collagen. Hard workouts also put stress and strain on the body. Supplementing your diet with collagen may help support your joints⁣⁣

Our COLLAGEN Capsules are quick, convenient to carry & use. You can take them with you in your gym bag, handbag, pocket, or car and use them anytime, anywhere.

Collagen supplementation is probably one of the most underrated supplements for sports performance. However as the research has suggested and many athletes are realizing, you can reduce joint pain, increase joint health & mobility, and help to improve muscle mass.

Reduced Pain & Increased Mobility = Improved Performance
