Whether you’re a long-time collagen devotee or just now jumping on the bandwagon, we’re here to help you figure out the right collagen supplement to choose. Although you can’t really go wrong by choosing any of the collagen options from Live Conscious®, one might be a better choice for you than the others. There is also no harm in trying them all; in fact, that may be a great way to ensure you’re getting everything you need for the ultimate support for your entire body.
What Is Collagen?
Understanding what collagen is and what it does in the human body can get quite complex, so we will get straight to the point. Collagen is the building block of the human body, plain and simple. Skin, hair, muscles, bones, and even internal organs are all put together with collagen.
There is an inner production of collagen, which our bodies make from amino acids (bits of protein), that breaks down and reassembles into different structural patterns. This internal production, aka synthesis, slows down as we age, and the signs start to show as the skin becomes less supple and joints may lose some flexibility.
Ingestible collagen is something that we get from an outside source to make it easier for the body to have the building blocks it needs to make healthy tissues (and beautiful skin!).
If you have been checking out collagen products, you will often see type I, type II, type III, and so on on the label. You might be thinking, “What the heck are all of these different types, and which do I need?” The different types of collagen all have slightly different structures and are found in different places in the body. Most of the collagen in the body is type I, but the other kinds are very important as well. It is good to get several types if possible to make sure you’ve got everything your body needs.
Live Conscious® is so passionate about collagen that we offer 3 different product options with multiple collagen types. We’ve got something to fulfill every need, so you can find the best option that works for your body and your lifestyle.
Live Conscious® Collagen Offerings
1. Live Conscious® Collagen Peptides
Our Collagen Peptides are formulated for enhanced bioavailability. What is a peptide? They are also known as hydrolyzed collagen, a form of collagen broken down into shorter chains for maximum absorption. An enzymatic action breaks the collagen into smaller pieces, so you could say that it has been kind of pre-digested. This makes it easier for the body to get to where it needs to go.
Containing type I and type III collagen, this formula is especially great for supporting bone and joint health and strengthening hair, skin, and nails. An extra bonus is that this formula is easy to digest and supports gut health, which promotes overall health!
This product is great for people looking to maintain shiny, beautiful hair, healthy skin, strong nails, and support their joints. It’s also a good option for busy people who may not have a lot of extra time, as it is so quick and easy to use. Simply stir it into your favorite beverage, mix it into a smoothie or add it to almost any recipe. As the peptides are broken down into smaller components, this is also a good choice for people with sensitive digestion or who may need a little extra help absorbing nutrients.
Our Collagen Peptides are sourced from grass-fed cows, so it is also a good choice for people looking to support the humane treatment of animals and who care about where their food and supplements come from.
2. Live Conscious® Beyond Collagen®
Live Conscious® Beyond Collagen® is a comprehensive collagen supplement containing five different kinds of collagen from bovine, marine, and avian sources.
