Some of the benefits of collagen for exercising
Collagen is well known for all its beauty benefits, but there are a lot more benefits to collagen.
Collagen is the most plentiful protein in our body, and It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons … As a matter of fact, collagen helps to give your skin strength and elasticity (beauty benefits I mentioned before). It is also great for your hair and nail’s health, plus it also helps replace dead skin cells.
But did you know that Collagen is also very important for our joints and tendons?
While in our early years the body usually produces the right amount of collagen, the collagen production naturally begins to slow down as we age.
Collagen is also very important for the gut health as well as muscle and joints!
Collagen protein for fitness
I have been running as a way of getting fit and realized very quickly I could use some help and decided to start taking a collagen recovery complex and this is where the Neocell Collagen Sport, Ultimate Recovery Complex, Belgian Chocolate, come into play.
I am what you can say a picky drinker, but this chocolate flavored complex is actually tasty and easy to mix.
The recovery complex, has no sugar, gluten, or artificial flavors, or lactose. What it does have is 30 g of protein, 15 g of pure whey protein isolate,15 g of super collagen peptides, 4.5 g BCAAs & L-Glutamine, along with multi-vitamins and protective antioxidants.
I love the benefits and the ease of use and preparation and my sore muscles and joints certainly welcome the extra help.
Collagen is also a great way to boost the gut health…Needless to say I am really happy I added the collagen shake to my fitness routine.
Another import element in skin health along with joints and even eyes health is the Hyaluronic Acid as it is an important disaccharide found in every tissue of our body and works as a lubricant. Therefore, the importance of this acid to maintain healthy joints, skin and eyes is obvious.
The hyaluronic acid often referred as HA is very important to feeling and looking good and a great way to nurture your skin from the inside out. HA is spread broadly through connective, neural, and epithelial tissue, and it is considered as a main constituent of the tissue that provides structural support to cells.
Both the collagen and the HA have been a great addition to my daily routine not only for the fitness benefits but the beauty aspect as well.
Neocell has kindly offered one lucky Jen’s Fun Finds readers, the chance to win a free 3 lb. Collagen Sport Ultimate recovery complex and a 60 capsule Hyaluronic Acid bottle.
