Collagen supplements have been gaining popularity in recent years, in both the traditional gym crowd as well as in the general population at large. As a key structural protein, collagen provides all of the essential building materials for the growth and maintenance of a healthy, active body, so you can remain strong while you’re busy living your life to the fullest.
What is collagen exactly?
About one third of the protein content in the body is made up of collagen, which is a complex structural protein and the primary building block for the body's cells and tissues. Collagen in fact, helps maintain strength and flexibility in ligaments, bones, joints, and tendons, supports healthy skin, gums, teeth, eyes, nails and hair, and helps the body build lean muscle.
Of course, not all collagen supplements are created equal...
You may be tempted to try collagen to help you keep up with your busy lifestyle, but with all of the options, how do you choose the right one for you? First of all you'll want to select a non-GMO collagen, sourced entirely from pasture-raised, grass fed cattle, so you can be sure your collagen is free from both antibiotics and added hormones. Beyond that, you'll also want to pay attention to dosing, as all of the latest research points to a scientifically validated optimal dose of 10g daily for optimal benefits.
