What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, comprising about 30% of all the protein in our bodies; with 70% of the protein found in our skin, 90% in our connective tissue, and 90% in our bone mass. This is why collagen is often referred to as “the glue that holds the body together” because without collagen our bodies wouldn’t be able to perform a lot of its essential functions.
While our bodies do naturally produce collagen, unfortunately, the older we get the less collagen we are able to produce. This starts happening as soon as our 20’s and is one of the main contributors to the signs of aging such as wrinkles, thinning hair, joint pain, poor digestion, etc...
Unfortunately, supplementing our bodies with collagen is not easy. One of the only ways to add collagen to our diet is to eat an abundant amount of animal protein including the connective tissue where the collagen rich proteins are most prominent. In today’s average diet, this is something that most people wouldn’t feel comfortable with or have access to.
With Collagen For Her: Collagen Peptide Powder, we can help supplement the collagen we need by simply adding a scoop or two to our daily routine! The essential amino acids in our collagen peptide protein powder are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and go to work at repairing and rebuilding the connective tissue lacking the collagen it needs!
Essential Amino Acids
When you take Collagen For Her Collagen Peptide Powder you are providing your body with 20 amino-acids, 8 of which are essential. These amino acids are considered essential because they cannot be manufactured by the body, meaning that you must get these from various dietary sources and supplements like Collagen For Her.
8 Essential Amino Acids
One of the main benefits of histidine is its support on joint function, repair, and regeneration. In addition, its anti-inflammatory properties help ease joint pain and stiffness. Histidine is a precursor to histamine production, which plays an important role in the transportation of oxygen between cells.
Isoleucine is one of three branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). It is an amino acid best known for its ability to increase endurance and help heal and repair muscle tissue after strenuous activity. This amino acid is especially important to athletes, bodybuilders, and workout enthusiast because of its functions.
Leucine is another one of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). It is also of extra importance to athletes and those who do strenuous workouts due to its ability to facilitate muscle protein synthesis and maintain muscle mass. It also can help control weight and cholesterol levels.
Lysine plays an important role in collagen as an anti-aging agent, helping with hair loss, combating wrinkles, and strengthening the elasticity of skin. It also has additional benefits like helping leaky gut syndrome and improving bone health.
Methionine plays an important role as a powerful antioxidant and plays a critical role in your body’s metabolism. It has also been shown to help fight radicals in your body and slow the aging process.
Phenylalanine can help support healthy mental functioning and help manage healthy joint function, especially in people of older age.
It is a critical protein for the heart, muscles, and central nervous systems and helps maintain proper protein balance in the body.
Valine is the third of three branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). Valine helps prevent the breakdown of muscle by providing extra glucose for energy. It also plays an important role in helping to repair tissues and promote normal growth.
Other “Non-Essential” Amino Acids
While these other amino acids are not technically considered “essential”, we must remember that this only means that our body has somewhat of an ability to synthesize them, however, they are still very important to our overall health and we need to make sure we are getting enough of them!
Glycine and Proline, for example, are two of the most abundant and prominent amino acids found in collagen and help regenerate cell growth that tends to diminish as you enter your mid 20’s. While Arginine, Hydroxylysine, and Hydroxyproline help regulate protein metabolism, promote skin, joint, and tendon health, and play a major role in bone and connective tissue.
The amino acid profile found in Collagen For Her Collagen Peptide Powder helps provide you with the necessary nutritional profile your body needs to help combat the signs of aging.
So if you are looking for a completely all-natural, non-GMO, gluten, dairy, soy and sugar free protein powder to help your bombshell bod look and feel young, beautiful, and confident, then Collagen For Her is exactly what you are looking for!
