Collagen - The Secret Fitness Weapon
August 26, 2017
Want to know what the secret weapon to fitness is? COLLAGEN! And it’s the number 1 thing most people miss in their diet which could be affecting their performance.
If you are someone who exercises you are probably aware of the importance of protein in your diet – but if you think about it muscle isn’t actually built by what you eat but more so how you’re training to rip and rebuild muscle.
Any form of workout you do, be it yoga or weights, is aimed at stretching the muscle and producing micro-tears – which then stimulates re-building – and that’s where collagen comes in.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, our building block, and is responsible for ‘glueing’ us together and healing. Probably the biggest barrier to increasing physical performance is soreness and pain or injury. If you’d like to fulfil your highest level potential – then you should consume collagen daily.
Our bones, tendons, ligaments and muscle are all made up of collagen. After exercising, we can get soreness in the shoulders, tendons, ligaments…and it is collagen that will repair them!
Collagen peptides trigger bone formation, and increases bone mineral density. It can also trigger an anabolic effect on cartilage tissue, maintaining the structure of the joint and aiding joint comfort.
Collagen protein also has a high-percentage of the amino-acids glycine and arginine – together they synthesise creatine which helps to improve athletic performance and increase lean body mass.
Many sports medicine practitioners and chiropractors will recommend collagen for disc care too. Whereas whey protein is good – collagen is paramount.
