We often get questions about the differences between types of collagen, what brands are the best, what the actual benefits are, etc. In this week’s episode we brought back our special guest, Casey, who is going to answer some of these questions and explain the anti-aging effects of collagen, as well as some of the other benefits. He will also explain why our Collagen Ultra Powder is a better choice than many collagen products on store shelves.
Products Mentioned in Today’s Show
Collagen Ultra Powder – Collagen Ultra contains FORTIGEL® which has been shown in human studies to stimulate collagen regeneration, type II collagen and aggrecan, which all help to maintain healthy connective tissue.1-3 Most therapies simply block joint pain and connective tissue discomfort from exercise, and in doing so inhibit the regeneration and elongation of specific precursors, such as polysaccharides, and deplete nutrients such as vitamin C and magnesium that maintain joint and connective tissue health. FORTIGEL®, TendoActive® and Mobilee® protect and preserve cartilage, tendons, ligaments, intervertebral discs, and fascia. These three clinically studied ingredients support the natural healing process and maintain the structure of connective tissues.
Hair, Skin, and Nails – Hair, Skin, and Nails provides several essential vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients needed to support healthy skin, hair and nails. This formulation provides betaine HCL, which helps to promote efficient digestion and assimilation of protein and minerals necessary for hair and nail health. It includes MSM, which provides a bioavailable source of sulfur, for connective tissue integrity. Saw palmetto is added to support normal levels of DHT, known to play a role in the thickness and health of hair. In addition, silica (from horsetail grass extract) is included for its collagen enhancing properties. Each serving contains 325 mg MSM, 100 mg betaine HCl and 240 mg saw palmetto. Added support from vitamin A, D3, folic acid, B12, biotin and selenium provide a full spectrum of skin, hair and nail support.
