What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in human and animal bodies. Derived from the Greek word for glue, the simplest explanation for collagen’s function is to hold different body tissues together and provide elasticity. There are at least 16 types of collagen that are currently known, but Types I, II, and III collagen can comprise as much as 90% of our collagen protein. These types are found in our hair, skin, nails, connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, etc.
As we age, the body’s ability to naturally produce collagen steadily declines, resulting in negative effects like fine lines and wrinkles, brittle skin and nails, thinning hair and hair loss, joint weakness, and increased susceptibility to joint, ligament, and tendon injuries.
By taking a collagen supplement, we can help our bodies replace natural sources of collagen depleted through slowed-down production. CollagenB3 has 20 grams of Types I, II, and III collagen in every serving, many times more than collagen products from many leading competitors. Here are just a few of the potential benefits from taking CollagenB3:
- May support for beautiful hair, radiant skin, and strong nails.*
- May provide natural energy, stamina, and focus.*
- May bolster bone, joint, cartilage, and tendon health for a stronger body.*
- May support a healthy digestive tract.*
Should I Still Take Other Types of Protein?
CollagenB3 offers a powerful punch of collagen protein with 20 grams per serving, but it’s important to remember that not all proteins are the same. For example, collagen protein is not effective for building and maintaining muscle mass; for that, whey protein found in SiseLEAN Vanilla or Chocolate would be the optimal choice (also, SiseLEAN can serve as a meal replacement where CollagenB3 cannot).
If you’re working on building muscle, SiseLEAN and CollagenB3 offer a perfect one-two punch: SiseLEAN helps to repair muscles and increase muscle mass and CollagenB3 helps to support the tissues that connect our muscles and strengthen our ligaments and cartilage as joint health is a critical component of healthy exercise.
