Hey guys: if you’ve been tuning out all the noise around collagen because phrases like ‘get a glow’ and ‘youthful skin’ don’t really apply to you – guess what? Besides being a bit of a big deal in the beauty world, collagen actually has a whole host of other health benefits that work to repair, rebuild and heal in just about every area of the body. Especially places like your joints, your muscles and even your digestion.
So if you’re battling some of the signs of aging, like achy joints, low energy and especially those rocky recovery times, you’ll want to add collagen as a powerful ally.
What it is:
The bone broth trend you’ve been hearing about? That’s actually a collagen thing. Collagen is a complex protein that acts like glue in the connective tissues throughout our entire body. It performs a number of important processes, is a key component of joint health, gut health AND is a fast and effective workout recovery tool. It’s also a key ingredient for those looking to increase strength and boost energy levels.
So even if you aren’t looking for that dewy morning skin (though it can never hurt) you need to pay attention to your collagen levels. Why? Because if you like to run, bike, work out, and recover quickly from it all, collagen is your new wing man.
Why Take a Collagen Supplement?
In the heyday of our youth, collagen is as abundant as our energy (and in inverse proportion to our impulse control). But as we age, our collagen levels take a nosedive – by about 1.5% per year. This wouldn’t be a big problem, except for the fact that our body uses collagen to heal and repair in every area.
Less collagen means weaker joints, longer recovery times and yes, even skin that starts to look like you feel some mornings.
But you can work to restore your collagen levels by supplementing with collagen peptides, and that’s where Sproos comes in.
4 Reasons to Use Collagen Right Now:
- Because: Joint Health
Collagen is a key factor in building, repairing and maintaining the cartilage in our joints. Adrenaline junkies tend to experience more damage in those areas than most (remember all those bmx jumps you missed?) and our joints rely on the cushioning that the surrounding tissue and cartilage provide. But once the cartilage is damaged by time, overuse or even a predisposition to arthritis, you begin to get joint pain and that achingly familiar morning stiffness.
Collagen feeds the tissue and cartilage that make our joints work smoothly and effortlessly. Add in some key ingredients for keeping the joint areas soft and flexible, and you have Sproos Up Your Joints.
And even if you haven’t had to deal with joint pain so far, you can start taking collagen now as a preventative measure.
- Recover Like a Boss
Like to run, bike and work out but dread the recovery time? Collagen can help. Collagen is a key ally in your ability to ‘bounce back’ from a tough workout. If you are a powerhouse at the gym, but hurting the next day – you can speed up your recovery time with collagen. Collagen, and its co-stars in Sproos Up Your Joints, arginine, glycine and proline, help to fight inflammation, and to repair, maintain and restore muscle mass.
- Support Gut Health
If you’re the type to carry your stress in your stomach, then you know exactly what it feels like to be in a constant battle with your digestion. Beyond the well-meaning elimination diets and frequent bathroom trips, there is a tool to help. Issues like Leaky Gut develop when the lining of our gut becomes porous, allowing undigested food particles, pathogens and more to ‘leak’ through what should be a natural barrier … and straight into our bloodstream. Leading to: inflammation, low energy, foggy head, weight gain and more.
One of the most amazing aspects of the human body is its ability to heal. Sproos Up Your Gut is a synergistic blend of 5 active ingredients (starring collagen, of course) meant to help heal and seal the gut lining. So say goodbye to leaky gut and digestive issues by sending collagen straight to the source.
- Promote Hair Growth
Noticing an unsettling, um, trend amongst your friends (everyone turns into an eagle at some point, right?) you’ll be happy to hear that collagen can also support a healthy head of hair (not to mention beards). How? Collagen in a key component of healthy skin, nails and hair. It is found right in the hair follicle, and as we age and face declining collagen levels, this depletion of has been linked age-related hair loss. Luckily, our Sproos Up Your Skin and Hair blend is specifically designed to enhance your skin and hair health. And it tastes great.
As a powerful tool for daily maintenance, healing and repairing all of the hard-working parts of your body, collagen is so much more than a beauty trend. So start incorporating a scoop into your daily routine, and say hello to your new ally!
