If you're here, you probably already know that collagen is a key protein in the human body. You've probably hear about it helping with hair growth, nail strength, skin elasticity and fair skin.
However, I bet you didn't know that taking collagen could be as easy as enjoying a matcha latte or a refreshing charcoal lemonade. That's where we come in — Fancy Formulas has the best tasting collagen powders in the market, making taking a collagen supplement a breeze.
Now, lets get into the top 5 benefits of taking a collagen powder:
1. Improves Hair, Skin and Nails
Like we said, this is the most commonly known benefit of taking a collagen powder. But that doesn't make it irrelevant, in fact, it's the reason most people take a collagen powder supplement at all!
Adding a collagen supplement to your diet will promote natural and healthy hair growth, giving you the locks of your dreams. Collagen is also a prime building block for our skin, so supplementing with it aids with skin elasticity, preventing wrinkles and more.
Lastly, collagen helps turn brittle and breaking nails into naturally full, gorgeous and strong nails!
2. Detox and Get Better Gut Health
Your liver is tap-tap-tapping away at toxins on the daily, so why not help it? Collagen protein contains glycine, which is excellent at supporting your liver as it goes through it's natural detoxification process.
Similarly, collagen helps replenish cells in your intestinal wall and therefore helps prevent toxins from swimming from your intestines to your bloodstream (also commonly referred to as having a leaky gut).
Since collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, supplementing with it helps repair a lot of the natural damage your body takes.
3. Happy Heart, Happy Life
Speaking of collagen repairing your body, let's talk about how it can help your most important organ: your heart. Collagen contains proline, which adds structure to your arteries and helps prevent deposits of fat from hardening your arteries or raising your blood pressure.
And while we're on the subject; collagen has also been said to help boost your metabolism and promote healthy weight loss.
4. Protect Those Bones
When we say collagen is in just about every part of your body, we mean it. Collagen makes up 1/3 of your bones' properties, so by supplementing with a collagen powder, you are literally giving them strength.
As you get older, your bones get weaker, leading to an increased risk for osteoporosis or severe fractures. Adding collagen to your diet will support bone health, increase bone density and help alleviate joint pain.
5. Gains for Days
I bet you didn't know that your muscle tissues are made up of collagen, although it should be no surprise at this point since we've learned just about every part of your body is made up, in parts, of collagen.
Collagen protein is used by your muscles to keep them strong and properly functioning. By adding collagen powder to your daily routine, you'll help your body boost muscle mass, and even stimulate growth after exercising. Now, Fancy Formulas can become your favorite gym buddy, especially since we include MCT oil in our collagen powders.
