Collagen is a very popular buzz word in the beauty industry at the moment - and there is a reason for that. Read why collagen can have a positive effect on your skin, in below newsletter!
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is the largest and most abundand protein in the body. It forms the connective tissue of your skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Think of it as the glue that holds your body together. From the age of 30, our own natural collagen production begins to decline, which is why you experience fine lines in your skin and possible loss of firmness etc.
Collagen is a complex protein made of three chains of amino acids - in fact, the protein that you have the most in your body - collagen makes up more than a third of your total protein. It consists, among other things, of "glycine", "proline" and "hydroxyproline" - all 3 amino acids that help your body produce new collagen.
If you take collagen as a supplement, you support your own natural collagen production.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN BOOSTER?
Our COLLAGEN BOOSTER is a collagen supplement based on pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides from grass-fed cattle, types I and III, in capsules.
When the collagen is hydrolyzed, it means that the collagen is broken down into small chains which makes it easier for the body to absorb and therefore more efficient. This is also called collagen-peptides.
CAPSULE VS POWDER?
We have chosen to produce our collagen powder in capsules, while others sell it as loose powder. It's a matter of taste what you like best. If you don't make a daily smoothie and add the powder - or don't like the powder in your coffee / water (as some brands recommend), then capsules are super practical.
They are also easy to carry on the go or travel with. You can also always open the capsule and pour the contents into a smoothie if you wish.
TYPE & ORIGIN?
Collagen is not just collagen - we have chosen the type and source of collagen of which we have been able to find the best results. It is collagen from cattle as it contains type I & III, with which the experts we work with have had the best results and recommend. It is important for us to emphasize that the collagen is based on grass-fed cattle. Both due to animal welfare, but also due to the nutritional content of the animal. Many studies indicate that our bodies process the nutrients from grass-fed cattle, better.
AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I START?
The body's own collagen production begins to decline slowly around the age of 25-30. This is also where most people experience, seeing the first "age signs" such as fine lines in the skin. Therefore, it is also around that period, it makes sense to begin taking a supplement of collagen. The effect will of course vary from person to person - we all absorb nutrients differently. Some will notice big changes and others will not. This is also the case with skin care products and other supplements - it depends on our ability to absorb and our natural deficiencies.
ONLY RELEVANT FOR THE SKIN?
Absolutely not! Collagen supplements are widely used in the beauty industry, but collagen is much more than skin. Collagen is part of many essential functions of the body, which is why many exciting research have been made regarding joints, bones and digestion.
RECOMMENDED DAILY DOSAGE:
4 capsules that give you 3000 mg of pure collagen. This gives up to 30 days of consumption pr. COLLAGEN BOOSTER.
CAN YOU COMBINE COLLAGEN BOOSTER WITH OTHER SUPPLEMENTS FOR BETTER EFFECT?
We recommend combining this collagen supplement with vitamin C. Vitamin C supports the body's own production of collagen. COLLAGEN BOOSTER is not formulated with vitamin C, which is why you can supplement it with eg Vitamin C Booster or our VITAMAX Multivitamin, as it also contains vitamin C.
