Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, accounting for about one-third of its protein composition. Unlike most collagen supplements, WillPowder’s collagen peptides are made up of highly bioavailable Type I and Type III collagen, meaning it will be easily absorbed for maximum benefit. Our collagen will support 90% of your body’s collagen, providing structure to skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue, and teeth, as well as muscles, organs, and arteries.
Collagen is said to be the “glue” that holds our bodies together. In our youth, our body produces all the collagen it needs, allowing for firm skin, supple joints, and strong bones. However, production levels start decreasing after you turn 30, gradually leading to physical signs of older-looking skin, thinner hair, brittle nails, stiff joints, and slower recovery from physical activity. In addition, the reduction in collagen results in hormonal changes, as well as increasing the negative effects of drugs and alcohol, consumption of hydrogenated oils, sugars, and processed foods, exposure to chemicals and radiation, and stress. Therefore, supplementing daily with a high-quality collagen supplement is a steadfast way to get ahead of the most common signs of ageing.
In an ideal world, we would be getting doses of collagen from our diets. Collagen is abundantly found in animal connective tissue, skin, bones and cartilage (especially in bovine cow collagen); however, we rarely consume adequate amounts of these sources.
Thankfully, WillPowder’s Swiss Bovine Collagen will reduce signs of ageing; aid in skin repair and hydration, leading to more elasticity and fewer wrinkles or cellulite; support hair and nail growth; promote healthy and strong bones, teeth and joints; decrease musculoskeletal aches and pains; is a rich source of glycine which helps with detoxification; repair fast-growing tissue like gut mucosa, skin, and gums; help build muscle mass and will easily mix into a variety of foods and drinks (making it easy to sneak it into your children’s meals!).
