If there was one key to maintaining a youthful appearance, it would be maintaining the health of your collagen.
What is it that actually allows us to remain youthful and to age gracefully? There are many factors involved in maintaining optimal health and skin appearance—diet, hydration, nutrition, detoxification, sleep, exercise, habits, attitude, lifestyle and environment just to name a few. But one key factor stands out when it comes to preserving skin health and youthful appearance—COLLAGEN.
Collagen is the most abundant protein throughout the human body. It offers support and strength to cell structures including bones, organs, vascular system, connective tissue, hair, skin, nails—the list is endless. Collagen not only anchors cells to each other like cement and glue but also 40% of our skin is made up of collagen. Collagen gives skin its ability to move, stretch and rebound into shape—known as skin elasticity. As you lose skin elasticity, this leads to wrinkles and visible signs of aging.
Collagen health is crucial for:
- Healthy skin
- Organ function
- Athletic performance
- Bone health and density
- Joint health
- Gut Health
While we’re born with an abundance of collagen in our skin, the body's production of collagen begins to slow down in our mid-to-late 20's and continues to decrease dramatically after age 30. From there, the collagen levels in our skin begin to drop by 1-2% each year. When collagen starts to decline with age—or due to excessive exposure to UV rays, pollution, or cigarette smoke—our skin’s structural integrity becomes compromised.
The Challenge with Collagen Supplements
Creating effective collagen supplements is more complex than one might think. The collagen molecule is the largest molecule in the body—often called the 'super molecule'—and its tightly wound 'triple helix' design is simply too big and too strong (stronger than steel by weight) to penetrate the surface of the skin, or to be broken down by digestive enzymes and absorbed into the bloodstream when ingested.
This makes it difficult for topical applications or collagen drinks and collagen powders containing plain 'collagen' to replenish collagen in the skin. While moisturizers, serums, and collagen creams containing plain collagen may claim to support the body’s natural production of collagen, they can’t replace the collagen in your skin. The same is true for any collagen supplement you ingest (be it a collagen powder, collagen pill or collagen drink) that contains plain, whole molecule 'collagen.' The molecule is just too big to be absorbed and have any desired effect.
The Best Way to Build Collagen
The fact remains that the best way to build collagen is to take the precursors that allow the body to do what it does best: build molecules. If your body has been producing collagen since you were a baby, then why is there an assumption that we must consume animal collagen supplements for our collagen process to not slow down? This concept has been pushed heavily be the meat industry, but it is a fallacy.
Our team has a medical background of over 40 years and if there is one key thing that we have learned it is that the body runs on precursors and building blocks.
The molecular building blocks of collagen in the body are Vitamin C, L-Proline and L-Lysine. Taking these three nutrients together, in the proper doses, produces the 18 amino acid chains that then go on to produce the hundreds of combinations to produce collagen. We combined these nutrients into doctor formulated daily packs (along with synergistic co enzyme b complex) that support your body’s own ability to create collagen.
It is important that these nutrients come from pure, high quality sources, and that they are formulated in such a way that they are actually able to be absorbed by the body. There is a big difference in simply consuming the cheapest store-bought form of L-Lysine and consuming pharmaceutical grade nano free-form L-Lysine such as the L-Lysine in our collagen pre-cursor daily packs. This difference in quality and bioavailability could determine whether the nutrients simply pass through your body or are absorbed and utilized by the body providing real benefits.
A keynote on our product is that we have included a therapeutic dosage of these building blocks, as most collagen booster supplements on the market contain a dosage for your chihuahua. The human body requires 3000mg of Lysine and 1000mg of Proline along with 1000 mg of Vitamin C to properly fund its daily collagen needs. The therapeutic dosage of these nutrients, along with the pure quality and nano-form technology, is the reason for the higher price on our 30-day packs as it combines four products in our product line into one convenient, doctor formulated, daily pack.
The Collagen Precursor packs are 100% vegan and ethically sourced offering those with a beauty regimen a more effective, cleaner and safer alternative to conventional collagen supplements. One pack per day gives your body everything it needs to optimize the process of collagen synthesis. For optimal effectiveness make sure to stack the collagen precursor packs with our Biodynamic Inflammation Tonic formula to lower inflammation levels in the body, as high levels of inflammation interfere with the collagen synthesis process.
Collagen does not have to come from animal products. When you give your body the key nutrient building blocks that it needs, it can produce its own collagen well into your later years. With our Collagen Precursor daily packs, now you can accomplish this simply and effectively.
