FURTHER FOOD COLLAGEN BENEFITS
Our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen as we age. Over time we get wrinkles, saggy skin, and our hair and nails become weak and brittle. Collagen supplementation can help reverse the toll that aging takes on our bodies. Further Food Collagen Peptides can help increase skin elasticity, decrease wrinkle depth, hide cellulite marks, and build stronger hair, nails and teeth.
Collagen has unique structural properties and an amino acid profile that make it essential in reducing gut inflammation, healing stomach ulcers, aiding in digestion and regulating stomach acid secretion. Studies have shown that several of the amino acids in collagen have direct benefits in helping to heal leaky gut and IBS.
Supplementing with Further Food Collagen Peptides can help to prevent and reverse arthritis, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis by rebuilding our bones, joints, and ligaments. Numerous studies have shown that supplementing with collagen can reduce arthritis-induced joint pain, stiffness and inflammation. Collagen also has proven benefits in alleviating joint pain and injuries from exercise and other physical activities.
Studies have shown that collagen protein is one of the most satiating proteins, which means that supplementing with Further Food Collagen Peptides will help suppress appetite by triggering the release of hormones that tell your mind you’re not hungry. You will lose weight faster and keep it off with Further Food Collagen Peptides! Further Food Collage also contains 18 amino acids and 8 of the 9 essential amino acids making it ideal for muscle repair and recovery.
FURTHER COLLAGEN FAQs
How absorbable is Further Food Collagen in my body? Further Food Collagen Peptides are short-chain amino acids and are highly bioavailable, meaning that the collagen is absorbed immediately. Research has shown that more than 90% of collagen is absorbed into the bloodstream within the first six hours after consumption. This means collagen can begin restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints and ligaments immediately!
How do I use it? How many scoops should I consume per day? Take one to two scoops one or two times per day. More can be taken for an additional protein boost.
Are there any side effects? No known side effects have been reported. We recommend not taking collagen on an empty stomach in order to prevent any intestinal discomfort that may occur during digestion of large amounts of pure protein.
How long will it be before I see results, and how long will the results last? Collagen begins restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut immediately. Clinical trials have shown visible improvements after four to eight weeks of supplementation. However, one should take collagen peptides indefinitely to combat aging because our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with Further Food Collagen Peptides is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health from the inside out.
I eat a lot of protein/meat. Do I still need to take it? Yes! Western diets are mainly composed of eating muscle-meat proteins instead of connective tissues proteins which are rich in collagen. Only collagen proteins can repair our connective tissues, ligaments, joints, skin, hair, nails, teeth, and bones.
What does it taste like? Further Food Collagen is tasteless and odorless, so it can be added to any drink or food without changing the taste. You can mix it and use it in a variety of recipes, click here for collagen recipe ideas.
What are the ingredients and how do I store it? Further Food Collagen is made with 100% hydrolyzed collagen peptides. It’s pure protein, and free from sugar, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or any added ingredients! Further Food Collagen Peptides should be stored at room temperature.
Is Collagen the same as gelatin? No. Collagen and gelatin are both sourced from cartilage and have the same makeup of amino acids, but gelatin undergoes more extensive processing which decreases its bioavailability. Further Food Collagen helps our body to repair and replenish cells in a more effective and beneficial way than gelatin.
Can children use Further Food Collagen Peptides? Yes. Further Food Collagen is tasteless and odorless, which makes it great for picky eaters. Further Food Collagen is a clean, pure protein powder without any sugar or preservatives, so parents can boost a child’s nutrition and protein intake without any harmful additives or ingredients.
Can diabetics use Further Food Collagen Peptides? Absolutely! In fact, taking collagen is even more important for people with diabetes! Diabetics have high blood sugar levels which can cause breakdown of collagen through a process called glycation. This leads to faster aging and increases their need for collagen supplementation.
