Collagen 101

Collagen 101

Collagen peptides have been one of the most talked-about protein supplements lately and for good reason. From skin and joint support to being completely flavorless, it’s easy to see why so many have become big fans of it, and we happen to love it too. 

We’re sharing the 101 on collagen peptides from what it is to what the benefits are and how you can get more of it in your diet. 

What is Collagen 

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body, and it plays a huge role in supporting skin elasticity, bone strength, and keeping our muscles, tendons and ligaments strong and healthy. 

And, while your body produces collagen, and you can get some from diet, supplementation has really grown in popularity. 

The great thing about collagen peptides is that many products are hydrolyzed, which means that the collagen is broken down as a way to help make it more easily absorbed. The result? Collagen peptides your body can put to good use!* 

Collagen Peptides Benefits 

Ok, so why should you consider giving it a try? Here are three benefits of collagen. 

#1 May Support Healthy Youthful Skin

As mentioned, collagen plays a big role in supporting skin elasticity, but research also suggests that it may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. And, since we start to produce less collagen as we age, supplementing may be a great way to give our skin health the boost it needs to stay looking young and healthy!* 

#2 Potential Joint-Supporting Benefits 

Another huge reason to consider collagen peptides has to do with joint health. 

This all has to do with the fact that collagen is thought to help support the integrity of cartilage, which helps support the health of our joints. And, since again, we start producing less collagen as we age, supplementing with collagen may be a great way to show those joints some love.* 

#3 Collagen Peptides Makes it Easy to Get Enough Protein

If you’re in need of an easy way to get more muscle building aminos into your diet, there’s truly no easier way than by adding a scoop of collagen peptides to your daily smoothie, mug of Cacao Bliss, or your evening cup of Golden Superfood Bliss

Our Earth Echo Collagen Peptides easily mixes into your favorite beverage without altering the flavor at all. You won’t even know it’s there! 

How to Get More Collagen in Your Diet
