If something was ailing you back in the old days, they’d tell you to eat that specific part of an animal. Whatever the case may be – heart, liver, eyes, testicles, you name it – just eat that animal part and you’d be cured!
Of course, that tradition has been abandoned in our wise, civilized culture. We use supplements now:
Can’t stand the taste of liver? No problem, take a dessicated liver supplement instead.
Have a thyroid issue? There’s a thyroid glandular supplement for that.
What about joint-related issues, wrinkles in your skin, or weak and brittle hair and nails? Simple, just take a collagen supplement.
You see, collagen is the “glue” that keeps the cells of all your connective tissue connected. As we age, collagen production wanes and as a consequence, your connective tissue literally falls apart. Your skin is a good indication of that – what you see on the outside is what’s happening on the inside.
Collagen not only provides many beneficial effects for your skin, hair, nails, and joints, it can provide support for your digestive, immune, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and central nervous systems as well. Put simply, collagen can provide many “anti-aging” benefits.
How does it work? Well, the specific amino acid composition of collagen actually stimulates the synthesis of collagen in our body. Of course, different collagen sources have different properties and thus different effects.
Most of the collagen on the market comes from cow (bovine), chicken (fowl), or pig (porcine) sources. Fish collagen has become very popular lately due to a more efficient absorption, a superior ability to heal wounds and regenerate bones, and its powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
If you combine fish collagen with bovine type I and III collagen (the main type in skin, bones, tendons, and ligaments) and chicken type II collagen (the main type in joint cartilage and other tissue), look out! You’ll have a potent combination that’ll supply a wide range of benefits.
A New Collagen Formula
I’m excited to announce a new addition to our anti-aging line of supplements. Catanzaro Supplements Collagen Formula is a unique animal, so to speak. Unlike other collagen products on the market, our formula is sourced from three different animals, not just one! That provides a big advantage in terms of the amino acid content and the diverse set of qualities that each source provides.
In order for a collagen supplement to be effective, it must contain “hydrolyzed” collagen. Collagen molecules are simply too large to be absorbed efficiently. They must be hydrolyzed, or broken down into small chains known as collagen peptides to truly perform their magic.
Our formula contains hydrolyzed collagen, which is fairly easy to digest and will dissolve readily into hot or cold liquids. You can add it to your Bulletproof coffee or to your meal-replacement shake, mix it in oatmeal or yogurt, and so on. There’s no added flavor – it’s just a clean source of protein from grass-fed cows and wild-caught fish that you won’t taste.
To derive the full benefits of our Collagen Formula without any interference from competing amino acids, take it first thing in the morning and before going to bed on an empty stomach. During an injury, additional doses spread throughout the day may be useful.
If you wish to retain a youthful appearance on the outside and a youthful structure on the inside, consider a good collagen formula as part of your daily regimen.
