Mid 20’s? Unfortunately, Yes! This is the age in which collagen production begins to naturally decrease in the body, contributing to intrinsic aging. As we continue to age, our body begins to produce and absorb less nutrients. The decline in collagen production is a great example of the body’s natural inability to keep up with the demands of the body, resulting in the visual, physical and noticeable effects of ageing.

When we think of “ageing”, we immediately think of our “appearance”, rightly so. But ageing is much more complex than that.  Our body systems, muscles, joints, hair, nails and skin are all greatly impacted by this inevitable process, aided by the decrease in collagen production.

As we have moved away from our ancestral diet (utilizing the entire animal), we have lessened our consumption of essential nutrient (especially collage) found in higher concentration in these discarded parts-the bones and hide. Although we do obtain some collagen from our daily diets, it may not be enough to replace the deficit.

 What are Type 1 and 3 Collagens?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, accounting for roughly 30% of all protein. Type 1 and 3 collagens constitutes 90% of collagen found in our body, making it essential for anti ageing, skin care, lean muscle building, bone, tendon and joint support, in addition to its contribution and support to the digestive system, circulatory system and immune system. In many respect, collagen acts as the “glue” for the body and is essential to maintain, slow and rejuvenate our skin, hair, nails and its vital systems.

What is the Solution?

A healthy lifestyle, definitely helps!  When we are younger, it is easy to neglect some essential needs of the body because it has the ability to compensate. However, as we age, it is more common to feel the brunt of everyday life, and make choices that fit within our hectic schedules. We should introduce a healthy diet plan as early as possible to support our bodys systems, and take proactive steps to reduce the external factors that contribute to ageing such as sun damage. UV protection is always a must! but healthy eating becomes even more important as we start to age. To compensate for the varying deficiencies and fight anti-aging, health professionals often recommend supplements rich in essential nutrients. Protein Basix has supplements to assist in bringing those nutrients to your body.

Protein Basix Supplements

Protein Basix is launching two new health supplements, specifically, Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptide Powder and Bone Broth Hydrolyzed Protein Powder. Unlike other collagen products available, Protein Basix collagen powder and Bone broth powder has been “hydrolyzed”, a process in which large, hard to digest and absorb proteins are broken down into their smaller parts.  This is important, because large proteins are not easily digested and are more difficult for the body to absorb and utilize. Uniquely, both supplements are rich in protein but derived from two different sources. The beef collagen used in the Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides comes from cow hide while the Bone Broth Protein Powder takes its source from actual cow bones. Both protein sources are packed with type 1 and 3 collagens and a great source of amino acids. If you are looking for an added boost, Bone Broth Hydrolyzed Protein provide additional benefits of minerals, glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid - necessary for improving bone and joint support.What’s great, is that the natural occurring hyaluronic acid also contributes to anti-aging and skin care!

Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides

Taken from the cow hide, Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptide provides a great source of protein for your body. Each scoop will give you double the amount of collagen than other brands. Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides will help rejuvenate the skin, improve hair and nail health, and strengthen bones. Overall, the supplement can slow down the process of aging or at the very least assist in the prevention of premature aging.

Apart from benefits for the bones and skin, Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides provides a healthy dose of bioactive nutrients and amino acids that are important for improving circulation in the body, aid in digestion, help with “leaky gut” syndrome and support a healthy immune system.

Bone Broth Protein Powder

The Bone Broth Protein Powder takes its protein directly from cow bones. With the use of Bone Broth Protein Powder, not only does it benefit bone and joint health but the addition of the glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid assist with digestion, healthy muscle mass and improved immune system. Hyaluronic acid is specifically beneficial for joint support, better skin, hair, nails and anti-aging.

Additional Benefits of Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides and Bone Broth Protein Powder

Both supplements have great health benefits. They are quite the comprehensive solution. The use of Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides and Bone Broth Protein Powder will not only strengthen your body from the inside by supporting the health of your bones and joints, but can benefit your outer appearance as well.

You also don’t have to worry about your weight loss plan. Both supplements will complement your weight loss plan by improving your metabolism. There are no carbohydrates present and they are perfect to go with any low carb or PALEO diet plans.
