Collagen Inside and Out

Lately, a lot of my clients are asking about collagen.

What is Collagen

What people don’t realize is that collagen is the most abundant and important protein in the body. We know it good for the skin, hair and nails. It is great for cartilage, tendons, veins, intestines, soft tissue of our organs, especially our heart and brain.

Types of Collagen

There are 4 types of collagen: Type I, II, III, V and X. (V and X are considered the same.) Type I is the most common collagen in supplements.

Here more specific information I got from the Youngevity Blog:

“Type I collagen makes up roughly 90% of the collagen found in the body. It is found in almost every tissue in the body including skin, bones, tendons, blood vessels, cartilages, and many other connective tissues. The main source of type I collagen comes from bovine, fish, and eggs (the whites and shells).

Type II collagen is essential for building cartilage which helps support the joints in the body. Cartilage provides your bones and joints the cushion they need for protection. Also it helps give structure to the ear, nose, bronchial tubes, rib cage, and more. The best sources of collagen type II are chicken collagen and bone broth.

Type III collagen is the second most abundant type of collagen found in the body along with collagen type I – they are often found in the same location. Collagen type III can be found in skin, organs, and blood vessels. Sources of collagen type III include bovine, bone broth, and fish.

Type V and X collagen, although a minor collagen component, they still play a significant part in regulating the development of collagen fibers of connective tissue. It is often found alongside type II collagen helping to support joint cartilage.

Benefits of Collagen

Healthline.com states the these benefits of collagen:

  1. May improve skin health
  2. May relieve joint pain
  3. May prevent bone loss
  4. May boost muscle mass
  5. May promote heart health

Don’t forget collagen may help hair and nails with strength and growth. Also, it may also help with brain health and gut health.

Why Collagen Degrades

According to Healthline: “As you age, your collagen production naturally declines. Additionally, collagen becomes fragmented and more loosely distributed.” Your lifestyle and diet can accelerate this decline. Factors include:

  1. Smoking cigarettes is known to degrade collagen that causes skin aging, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity
  2. Excessive drinking has also been shown to accelerate skin aging by reducing collagen production and damaging skin repair mechanisms
  3. A diet high in sugar and ultra-processed foods can lead to premature aging that  contributes to glycation, that reduces collagen turnover and interferes with collagen’s ability to interact with surrounding cells and proteins
  4. Excessive sun exposure degrades collagen and causes premature aging

Ways to Consume Collagen

You can get collagen from bone broth, foods that we eat and by consuming Collagen Peptides supplements.  Bone broth comes from chicken and beef broth soups. Plus people love to put Collagen Peptides in their shakes and smoothies.

What is great is that I offer a variety of different types of Collagen Peptide products to choose from.

My Favorites Collagen Products

Being a runner, my favorites Collagen Products are Collagen Peptides Joint Health Support and plain Collagen Peptides.  In January, I broke my foot and they helped me heal quickly. 

Living in Southern California, my skin gets exposed to the sun. It is important to consume collagen internally and apply it to my face. I recently tried a new collagen product that I do apply directly to the skin.  It is a Face Serum Bundle that includes Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Collagen Serum.

The powerful combo of taking powder collagen internally and applying the serums to my skin is truly helping my skin’s appearance. My face does feel soft.  Even my Esthetician noticed and said that my skin had great elasticity.

Collagen Peptides Hair, Skin & Nails Support and Collagen Creamer are great, and I don’t purchase them on a regular basis.  The Multi-Collagen Peptides Gummies are a great buy when they are available.
