What Is Collagen Protein?
Simply put, collagen is the most abundant and arguably the most important protein in the body. In fact, collagen constitutes a whopping 30% of the protein in your body. Aside from water, collagen is the most plentiful substance in your body.
For example, collagen makes up 70% of the protein in our skin, and it’s one of the primary structural proteins in joints, bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, hair, fingernails, blood vessels, spinal discs, the intestinal wall, the blood-brain barrier, and more. Collagen is the glue—literally, it comes from the Greek word for glue—that supports, connects, and holds everything together.
Not surprisingly, maintaining healthy levels of collagen is vital to support many aspects of overall health, including:
- Smooth, healthy, young-looking skin
- Strong, healthy fingernails and glossy hair
- Healthy, supple joints and strong, stable bones
- Healthy digestion and gut health
- Strong, healthy tendons and ligaments
- Healthy, flexible blood vessels
- Properly functioning organs
And More! The moral of the story is that collagen is a vital component of your entire body, and it has a tremendous impact on how you look and feel.
Why Do You Need a Collagen Powder?
When you’re young, your body makes all the collagen it needs. That’s why your skin is firm and glowing, your joints are supple, your bones are strong, and your digestive system works like a champ.
As you get older your body loses its ability to make collagen, plus collagen starts to break down more rapidly thanks to things like smoking, stress, excess sun exposure, changes in digestion and hormones, physical activity, and diet. For example, consuming sugar, refined carbs, and poor-quality fats (such as industrial produced vegetable oils), which are common in processed foods, can all accelerate collagen depletion.
In simple terms, we produce less collagen with age.
For example, studies show that skin levels of collagen decrease by about 11 – 13% with each passing decade after the age of 20, and by the time we hit our 80s, we’ve got roughly one-third of the collagen we did when we were in our 20s.
Over time, this explains, at least in part, why…
- Skin sags and wrinkles
- Hair gets thinner, and nails lose their strength
- Joints become stiff and less flexible
- Recovery from activities like exercise slows
- New food intolerances pop up, and gut-related complaints come out of nowhere
- Our bodies seem to turn on us
That may sound grim, but it’s not all bad news. In fact, there’s GREAT news. You can ramp up your body’s collagen production by consuming more collagen protein in your diet.
Collagen protein is very different from other common protein sources—such as beef, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, and plants—because it features a unique profile of amino acids, and it is especially rich in glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which is found ONLY in collagen protein. Together, these three amino acids account for 40 – 50% of the amino acids in collagen protein, which is 10 – 20 times higher than other common protein sources.
Why is that important? These are the raw materials the body needs to combat collagen breakdown and support healthy levels of collagen. Even more, research shows that consuming a very specific type of collagen protein—known as collagen peptides—trigger the body to make more collagen and produce more hyaluronic acid, which is a lubricating fluid that’s a key component of healthy, hydrated skin and healthy, supple joints.
So, where can you find collagen protein?
Well, just like us, collagen is the primary structural protein in animals. You’ll find it in their connective tissue, including skin, bones, and cartilage. Unfortunately, we’ve all but abandoned the traditional “nose to tail” way of eating.
Most of us eat boneless, skinless muscle meat, which provides protein that’s quite a bit different than collagen protein, which has a very specific combination of amino acids and functional properties. We rarely eat bone-in meat, let alone the skin, organ meats, and other connective tissue from land and sea creatures.
And while bone broth can be a great source of collagen protein, making homemade bone broth takes time to make and clean up—a lot of time. The good news is that you can buy pre-made bone broth that’s pretty darn tasty. However, that can become an expensive habit quite quickly, and let’s face it, most people aren’t interested in sipping a cup of bone broth every single day, which you’d need to do to continuously support healthy levels of collagen.
The Problem with Most Collagen Supplements on the Market
Thankfully, there’s a better, simpler solution that makes it even easier to get more collagen in your diet: You can use a collagen powder. Unfortunately, not all collagen powders are created equal.
Most collagen protein powders come from a single source, such as chicken or cattle. This is important because different sources feature different types of collagen. While at least 28 different types of collagen have been identified, the three most common are types I, II, and III, which account for 80 – 90% of the collagen in the body.
Now, these various types of collagen are important because they serve different functions in the body. For example, collagen types I and III, which come from cattle and fish, are found in our skin, bones, and tendons. Type II collagen, which comes from chicken, is almost exclusively present in the cartilage between bones.
The point here is that if you want to reap the broad range of benefits associated with collagen protein, then you’ll want a collagen powder that contains multiple types of collagen from various sources.
In addition to that major problem, here are some of the other drawbacks of many multi collagen powders, including bone broth and gelatin supplements:
They are not broken down into smaller collagen peptides, also known as collagen hydrolysate or hydrolyzed collagen, which are bioactive collagen building blocks that are more easily and readily absorbed (than whole collagen protein).
They are not complete proteins. Collagen protein is typically considered a “low-quality” protein because it is missing one of the essential amino acids (i.e., tryptophan), and that means those collagen supplements can’t be used to replace dietary protein.
They taste and/or smell which limits how you can use them and can ruin the taste of whatever you mix them in.
They don’t dissolve well in cold or room temperature liquids, often leaving a sticky, clumpy mess at the bottom of your glass that’s unpleasant to drink.
Fortunately, that all changes now, and we’re excited to introduce you to your collagen powder solution: It’s called BioTrust Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein.
