Collagen is a type of protein found in many parts of our bodies including hair, nails, skin, bones, muscles, tendons, our blood vessels and our digestive system.
In fact, it makes up nearly 1/3 of your body's protein composition. Many like to call it the "glue" that holds it all together.
There are at least 16 types of collagen found throughout your body (source).
What are the benefits of Collagen?
Collagen has many benefits to us, and unfortunately, as we age, our collagen production slows down dramatically. This results in wrinkles, aches and pains throughout our bodies, a lack of hair density, skin problems and even leaky gut.
Here are the 3 main benefits of collagen supplementation (clicking links will take you to that specific benefit):
Collagen can give your body the tools it needs to continue to thrive!
1. Improves Hair, Skin & Nails
Have you noticed that as we age, our skin becomes looser, we develop wrinkles, our skin starts to discolor, our hair may start falling out and our fingernails/toenails need to be cut less often? This is in part due to collagen production declining as we get older, in additional to other lifestyle factors contributing to the aging process.
But there is good news! Increasing collagen consumption has been shown to help the cells in our skin, hair and nails to repair, thus contributing to smoother and firmer skin, healthier nails, and fuller hair.*
2. Help Tendons, Ligaments, & Joint Recovery
Collagen has amazing recovery properties that give your bodies what is needs to repair the damage from an intense workout, or even just the daily grind of everyday life!**
We work hard to grow our muscles stronger, but what are we doing to strengthen/repair those things we call tendons and ligaments that connect our muscles and bones? Well, unless you are routinely eating organ meats, drinking bone broth on the regular, or taking daily doses of a delicious multi collagen supplement that just so happens to have a CB Supplements logo on it, you are doing very little for your tendons and ligaments.
Collagen will absolutely not guarantee injury from not happening (we can’t make that claim!), but individual results seem to suggest that collagen supplementation throughout the day has powerful abilities to help our bodies rebuilt and recover faster.
3. Fights Against Leaky Gut
To start, lets describe what exactly the term ‘leaky gut’ means.
Leaky gut is what it sounds like — a condition where there are small holes in the small intestinal lining thus allowing toxins to pass directly into the bloodstream and result in inflammation in the form of knee pain, migraines, skin disorders, gluten sensitivity, colon cancer, you name it.
Inflammation is the root of most disease and leaky gut is a main contributor, allowing bad things access to parts of your body where toxins should never be present.***
So how does collagen fight against leaky gut? Short answer is that collagen protein helps form connective tissue in the lining of the digestive system that effectively closes the holes in a leaky gut.
Collagen has been shown to heal damaged cells in the intestinal track by infusing essential amino acids found in the profile of collagen protein to the stomach lining.
*No, collagen does not cure baldness, if it did, we would be billionaires.
**Everybody is different. Some individuals will need 1 serving of collagen per day to notice a difference in their recovery, while other may need quadruple the amount. There is no silver bullet.
