5 reasons why collagen is a great source of protein

December 06, 2018

Did you know that 25%- 35% of the entire body's protein content is composed of collagen?

There are so many protein benefits to collagen, as it contains essential amino acids that wind together to create fibrils. Although it's most commonly found in the skin, tendons and ligaments, it's also found in the eyes, gut and teeth.

Each sachet of Absolute Collagen contains 7.7 grams of protein, as well as all nine essential amino acids.

Absolute Collagen contains higher levels of Glycine, Hydroxyproline, Proline, Alanine amino acids in comparison to Whey and soy protein. This specific amino acid composition provides Absolute Collagen it's unique bioactive properties not found with other protein sources.

These amino acids act as building blocks supporting the connective tissues and muscle health.

Collagen is the best sources of protein, making it a must for post-workouts.

Here are 5 benefits to collagen protein:

It eases joint pain and helps you build muscle

The cartilage in your joints weaken as you age, making mobility harder. Collagen looks after your joints to keep them strong. Many of our #Absoluters say that Absolute Collagen has helped them with joint pain like arthritis.

Collagen also keeps you in the gym longer, as it provides your muscles with protein to retain muscle mass.

It gives you strong, healthy hair

You can thank collagen for the reason why your hair stays in great shape. Collagen protein helps your hair grow as well as strengthen your hair follicles.

Did we hear you ask for more volume? Yes please! Since collagen strengthens your hair follicles, this means that it increases each hair’s diameter leaving your hair looking fuller and healthier.

It strengthens your nails

No chipping, cracking, or breakage here! Say goodbye to brittle nails with collagen.

A study conducted by the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology had 25 participants take collagen supplements for 24 weeks. At the end of the trial, they found that there was a 12% increase of nail growth rate and a decrease of 42% in the frequency of broken nails. Plus, about two-thirds of the subjects reported better outcomes with brittle nails.

So if you tend to break your nails, try taking a daily dose of Absolute Collagen.

Collagen helps you look younger

Collagen is the main structural protein in your body, but research shows that by age 25, our natural reserves start to deplete. This causes sagging skin, wrinkles, and decreases skin elasticity.

Ingesting collagen from the inside out is the perfect way to naturally stimulate collagen production. Keep your skin silky smooth, prevent wrinkles, and other signs of ageing with Absolute Collagen’s drinkable collagen supplements.

It helps look after your gut

Collagen is such an important component of the gut’s connective tissue.
If there are alterations to the intestine’s barrier function this can result in leaky gut syndrome which means that you won’t be able to digest your food properly and can lead to inflammation.

Collagen protein helps to regulate stomach acid secretion, preventing heartburn, stomach ulcers and other digestive conditions caused by an overly acidic environment. 

Absolute Collagen is available in ready mixed 10ml sachets and contains 8g of hydrolysed marine collagen to help stimulate the body's natural collagen production and reduce signs of ageing.
