Collagen is such a buzz word right now. I wanted to explain why I am choosing a liquid collagen over a powder version. First of all, we all stop producing collagen in our late 20’s. So everyone should be taking some kind of collagen.
What exactly is Collagen? Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It is the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments, skin, and muscles. It is very important. The main benefits of taking collagen include skin health, relieves joint pain, prevents bone loss, boosts muscle mass, promotes heart health, gut health, nail growth, and hair growth.
Collagen is a main component of our bone, skin, muscle and ligament structure. There are several types of collagen, but types I, II and III are most common in the human body. Type I accounts for most of our collagen and is made of densely packed fibers needed for teeth, bones, ligaments, skin and connective tissue. Type II is found in elastic cartilage, which provides joint support. Type III is found in the structure of muscles, arteries and organs. As we grow older, our bodies produce less collagen, which may contribute to aging skin and wrinkles. Lifestyle factors such as smoking and too much sun exposure may also damage collagen production.
You can get collagen from some foods like bone broth or pork skin, but to be honest, taking a supplement is easier and its already broken down in a way your body can absorb and use faster.
SO Why liquid over powder? Liquid collagen is digested and absorbed into the bloodstream more quickly and efficiently than solid supplements (which your body has to work harder to extract nutrients from) We absorb 90% of the liquid collagen vs. 30% of the powder collagen. This is for everyone! The quicker you can absorb the collagen the quicker it can start working for you. This is for everyone!
