From the inside out, our bodies live on collagen. Seriously. You probably knew that water is the most abundant substance in the body, but did you know collagen is the second most abundant substance in the body? True story. It may go without saying, but this protein comprises the majority of the body’s protein composition, and it’s responsible for so.many.things! Our sweet friend, collagen, gives us plump and hydrated skin, keeps dreaded joint soreness at bay, assists in muscle recovery, plays a role in heart health…and that’s just to name a few! Unfortunately, the body’s ability to produce collagen decreases with age. Around age 25, collagen production begins to decline. After age 30, collagen production decreases by a staggering 1-2% every year.
Slower collagen production is just considered a “natural part” of aging…or maybe it’s just natural for those who don’t know there are collagen supplements to take that help promote collagen growth! Yeah, it’s in creams. But research has shown ingesting collagen rather than a topical application reaps better results with fine lines and skin hydration. Studies also show individuals report less joint soreness and better muscular recovery with collagen supplementation.
If you make the choice to supplement, it should be worth your time, energy, and effort. Plain and simple. With 16 different types of collagen out there, choosing the right forms can really send you into a cost benefit whirlwind. So many collagen protein supplements require you to choose one single type of collagen. Just seems like a lot of commitment to that individual type, doesn’t it? That’s why we created Multi Collagen! With five different types of collagen from four food-based sources, Multi Collagen will maximize your (collagen) gains with minimal effort. It’s odorless, tasteless, and sourced from non-GMO, grass-fed, hormone-free, cage-free, and cruelty-free sources. Win-win-win!
Multi Collagen is formulated with five different types of collagen: Type l, Type ll, Type lll, Type V, and Type X. Type l and Type lll are the most common types of collagen in the body. This dynamic duo supports shiny hair, plump skin (bye bye fine lines!), strong nails, and bone health! Type ll collagen is our joint health. This type of collagen is responsible for the fluids and function in cartilage and joints.
Type l: makes up 90% of hair, skin, nails, organs, bones, ligaments, supports healthy youthful skin
Type ll: helps build cartilage and maintain gut lining, supports joint and digestive health, promotes healthy immune function
Type lll: supports skin and bone health, supports cardiovascular health
Type X: Enhances joint health and is a precursor for new bone formation.
How to use Multi Collagen?
Multi Collagen is unflavored, odorless and tasteless, making it the perfect supplement to add to your favorite food and beverages you enjoy everyday without modifying the flavor. We love adding Multi Collagen to morning coffee or tea, but if you’d prefer that your coffee only includes milk and sugar, you can shake Multi Collagen into water or juice, blend into your smoothies, protein shakes or oatmeal. Multi Collagen is also a great addition to baked goods, simply swap ⅛ – ⅓ of a cup of flour with one scoop of Multi Collagen in your recipe.
