While topical creams and cosmetic products can improve your skin from the outside, nutritional supplements taken orally can have an impact from within the body. Consuming collagen peptides has clinically been shown to promote younger looking skin by improving epidermal moisture content which prevents skin aging.
Other studies have demonstrated that collagen peptides can prevent the formation of deep wrinkles, improve skin suppleness, replenish moisture levels in hair (increasing growth and retention), and supports stronger and accelerated nail growth.
Supplementation with collagen peptides can also protect the degradation of connective tissues in athletes which ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, hair, tendons, cartilage, bones, and joints. A 2011 study found that supplementation with 30 – 70 grams of collagen peptides per day reduced the risk for muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries in athletes. Collagen peptide supplements are the perfect protein to consume before and after exercise, helping to maintain and restore the protein content of muscle.
Collagen Peptides are also a great, natural alternative to quick-fix medications for gastrointestinal problems. Rather than simply masking symptoms, the 18 amino acids found in collagen peptide can prevent and even heal many digestive disorders by increasing stomach acid, healing stomach ulcers, aiding in digestion, and healing and sealing the gut lining.
