Promoting a Youthful Look. The Lowdown on Collagen Supplementation

The sports nutrition world has taken huge steps in improving the quality of their products. Like training and nutrition plans however, it is usually hard to pick out what works and what does not. Usually it is a shot in the dark if we made a great purchase or wasted some money. In sports nutrition though, as in anything else, cost and value are two different things.


Fitness is about not only feeling good but looking good as well. Looking good is completely relative and based on everyone’s own opinion, however looking youthful is a very important goal many people share, especially with women. There are so many creams and home remedies that people follow to get a youthful look. When one wants to look youthful (especially women), we can look at skin, hair and nails.


These days it seems like sports nutrition companies are looking at the non-essential (the body produces on its own) components of the body and enhancing them. The muscle gain and fat loss are now being joined with the noted above the health of skin, hair and nails to help accomplish that youthful look.  How does the sports nutrition world help with the health of these three things?


Collagen supplementation. 


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. That description alone should get people, especially the women, focused and ready to read this.


Sports nutrition companies like 1Up Nutrition have implemented this amazing protein 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.


We all supplement with something. If it be multivitamins to replenish lacking vitamins from our workouts or eating. Fish oil is great for joints and fighting fat as well. Proper and effective supplementation is like nutrition and training, you must do your research and get a good knowledge base. Collagen is one of those things that we have in the body that can be affected not only by our fitness lifestyles, but life too as we age. Find a product like 1Up Nutrition’s Her BCAAs to help promote good health from an exterior and interior perspective.
