Benefits of Collagen Protein Powder
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body; its name comes from the Greek word meaning "glue". It’s a fibre like structure used to make connective tissue which connects other tissues together. It’s a major component of bone, skin, muscles, tendons, and cartilage. In this article we will explore five benefits of collagen protein powder and why you should give it a go!
Collagen Protein Powder Explained by a Nutritionist
Hydrolysed Collagen protein, also known as collagen peptides, is made from bovine skin, bones and tendons. It’s a highly bioavailable protein source that is easy to digest and absorbed by the body quickly, and therefore is great for anyone that has digestive issues.
Collagen is a natural substance in our body that is produced on a daily basis, however as we age, our production decreases. This is why we see wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of ageing. Including collagen protein powder in your diet, may help to stimulate the body's own production of collagen, which in turn may help to keep your skin looking younger and healthier. Ageing really is a privilege, however if we can slow down that process just a little - then why not?!
SSD's Collagen uses type 1 and 3 hydrolysed collagen protein which is a bioactive collagen peptide protein that may support the body’s own collagen supplies.
Why is Collagen Protein Powder important to your health?
Collagen protein powder is a great source of protein and protein is made up of amino acids which are literally the building blocks of your body. Amino acids make muscle, tendons, bones, organs, skin, hair and nails, as well as enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and other chemicals that are involved in every function that your body performs.
Inadequate protein intake may result in many unwanted processes within the body such as fatigue, muscle wasting, thinning hair, brittle nails, reduced bone density, digestion and liver problems, slow wound healing, memory/concentration problems and mental health problems. Additionally, low protein intake may result in weight gain or make it very difficult to lose weight.
Collagen is a type of protein that can be easily added into pretty much anything. It doesn’t gel, it’s not temperature sensitive and it’s completely flavourless so can be added to any warm or cold liquids or mixed into foods.
