There are hidden heroes in the sports nutrition world that do wonders for the body. Collagen is one of those heroes. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. Its presence is in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It's what helps give our skin, nails and hair strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells. Collagen in a nut shell seems to reverse the aging process for many people, or at the very least slow it down.
It is obvious then that supplementing with a product that contains collagen would do a world of wonders for anyone. Women seem to be more cautious of the things effected by collagen in the body, even though it is important to some men as well.
Specific benefits of collagen (to name a few) are:
- Brainand Alzheimer's Protection
- Prevent and Help Treat Heart Disease
- Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Ease Joint and Knee Pain
- Less Back Pain
- Improve SkinElasticity
- Prevents Brittle, Broken Nails
Collagen pretty much has an effect on everything in the body. Studies have shown its effectiveness in regeneration abilities of tissue throughout the body, especially in the digestive system. Collagen plays a huge roll in overall function and health when it comes to the GI tract and stomach. It helps out with numerous ailments and conditions, such as in leaky gut syndrome. By supplementing with collagen, a person can actually rebuild their body’s tissue, literally!
1Up Nutrition have implemented this amazing building block into products. 1Up Nutrition’s Her BCAAs is loaded with all the amazing BCAAs that will help with promotion of protein synthesis (building) and recovery. It has a very effective 3:1:1 ratio of leucine, valine, and isoleucine. This product also provides a great blend of glutamine which is imperative for prevention of muscle breakdown (catabolism) and help promote recovery. The game changer however is the hydrolyzed collagen formulation. Think of hydrolyzed collagen as the missing link in supplying amino acids like glycine, proline and lysine that are required by the body to build connective tissue to regulate cell growth. As stated earlier, this will do nothing but benefit hair, skin tissue, muscle, cartilage, ligaments and blood cell growth.
So, in understanding the importance collagen plays in the body, do you have a reason not to take it?
