Did you know that collagen is the main structural protein found in the body? Take a quick read on Wikipedia, and see for yourself the vast information on collagen, in short it is mainly found in connective tissue, we have it in our cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments and skin. As the main component of connective tissue, we are made up of between 25%-35% of the collagen protein, making it the most prolific protein in the body.

Collagen fibres are the main component of the extracellular matrix that supports most tissue and gives cells structure from the outside, however it is also found inside certain cells, it has a great tensile strength. Along with elastin, soft keratin it is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Almost 70% of the skin is made up of collagen and water, so as soon as it starts to degrade, the obvious visible signs are wrinkles that accompany the ageing process. However, it is hugely important when it comes to preserving skin elasticity, improving skin hydration, and contributing towards both reversing and delaying the most common signs of ageing.

So why is it required as a supplement if your body has this abundance?

Simply, since like so many things that are great in our youth, those levels change over time. Imagine the bodies, natural morph from baby to teenager. All that growth and what it takes to sustain it over those early years. We are full to the rafters with skin bounce, density, and suppleness. Following into adolescence and eventually touching down into adulthood. It is then, as we reach our mid to late twenties that supply, and demand starts to unhinge. By the time we reach our mid-forties, it is though that we have depleted around a third of our natural collagen supplies. Speed up the clock a further twenty years, is there any collagen left? Possibly around 50% of our natural supplies…

This is what the collagen providing brands all point out, if we are looking to improve, enhance and restore any of the following, then potentially a collagen drink could be the daily supplement to reach for in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.

  • Healthier, younger looking skin
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Plumper, more radiant skin
  • Stronger nails and healthier hair
  • Support for your joints from the inside out
  • Supple and radiant skin
  • Prevents and helps reverse issue like arthritis.
  • Metabolism booster
  • Boost energy levels
  • Aids in weight loss by keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
  • Stronger bones and joints
  • Helps tackle issues relating to the menopause.
  • May help reduce risk of bone diseases like osteoporosis.
  • Maintains a health gut.
  • Maintains a healthy heart.
  • Helps with liver function and detoxification.
  • Helps maintain a normal nervous system.

So where to start when choosing your collagen drink? Many say that collagen drinks are the superior form of collagen as they are so readily absorbed into the gut, easy to take – especially if you find swallowing pills a cumbersome task. So, let us take a cheeky sip through the most wanted collagen drink brands on the market right now.

Doctors Formula | The Soluble Solution to Ageing

There are many formulations to choose from, but the reality is the higher the dosage of marine collagen, the better it is likely to be for our overall health, skin, hair, nails, and joints. My advice, look for the brands who offer the highest daily dose. Absolutely 10,000mg of marine collagen per day for maximum effect. Here is what to look out for.

If they have types I and type III collagen specified, even better as Type I collagenaccounts for up to 90% of your body’s natural collagen, helping to rebuild tendons and bone. It helps to support the “scaffold” structure required for both skin and body support, strengthening the structural element from within, while on the outside the appearance of the skin appears strengthened, fine lines and wrinkles are minimised and hydration levels in the skin improved.  Type III collagen supports the organs, arteries, and muscles.

Structurally, these predominant types of collagen are composed of polypeptide chains, called alpha chains. Glycine, Prolineand Hydroxyproline are the important amino acids to look out for. Why you may ask? Because every third to fourth amino acid in collagen is glycine, one of the three amino acids your body needs to combat oxidative stress and premature ageing. The most abundant amino acid in collagen with benefits to the skin, joints & bones. It may also help you to sleep through its calming effects on the brain. Lysine the building block for protein. An essential amino acid because your body cannot make it, so you need to obtain it from food. It is important for normal growth and muscle turnover. Lysine assists in the transport of fats across your cells to be burned for energy. It is essential for the formation of collagen, and effective wound repair. Finally, Proline - nearly every protein that the body makes contains at least some proline, but proline is specifically important in collagen. Our bodies can make proline from glutamic acid, the most abundant amino acid in food. Proline works in harmony with ornithine, for tissue growth.

Both types I and type III collagen are associated with healthy skin, renewing the collagen “glue” that holds everything together and keeps us looking more youthful. Hydrolysed collagen (also known as collagen peptides) is collagen that has been broken down into more easily dissolvable amino acids. To help improve skin hydration, firmness, smoothness, elasticity, and suppleness. Antioxidant rich to help prevent the visible signs of ageing, most brands will show that the source of hydrolysed collagen is from fish, so not suitable for vegetarians or vegan friendly.

Extra beneficial ingredients to watch out for in your collagen booster drink are key active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid as this boosts the skins moisture content, while defending against moisture loss – think of it as an additional ingredient for fresh faced youth. The additional benefit is that it helps to keep joints lubricated, so fewer creaks and moans from your joints.

A collagen booster drink rich in Rich in B vitamins such as B6 also supports a healthier skin, has a detoxifying effect, and helps in enhancing the health of blood vessels. While it is claimed it can also improve cognitive function & relieve mood swings. B7 will help promote healthy and shiny hair. As B5 proves to be essential to help your body process fats and proteins, and is required to help keep your nervous system, skin, hair, eyes, and liver in a healthy condition.

Finally, if you can find Vitamin C blended into the mix too, you know that you are onto a winning formulation! As, an essential nutrient to maintain healthy skin, blood vessels, bones, and cartilage. While it is involved in the formation of collagen, vitamin C helps to protect the health of both body & skin cells and assist in wound healing and regeneration at the same time.

So, if we do not want to look in the mirror and face the wrinkles, moan about our creaking joints, then it is time to join the millions of collagen booster drink users, who, by drinking their daily dose, feel more vibrant, look healthy, have a happy gut and the joints of a much younger version of themselves.
