The Collagen Trend: How It’s Benefiting Your Clients (UC-II®)

Clients want a magical supplement that does it all. From smoothing out their wrinkles to helping them lose weight. Most of the time, you have to deliver the unfortunate reality that health supplements are specific and target only one or two related health concerns. However, manufacturers have begun producing new supplements with what many dub a “miracle” ingredient: collagen.

Sources of Collagen

Collagen is found naturally in the human body. Our tissue structure and tissue elasticity depends on the compound. It’s also found in animal proteins but not in the meat we eat. That means clients are dependent on their own bodies to produce collagen to keep their skin smooth and tendons flexing. Or, do they?

Collagen can be found in a small dose in certain natural foods like turmeric. Of course, a person would have to consume large quantities in order to create any result. That’s where supplements come in. Collagen supplements impact a person’s collagen levels directly.

The Many Benefits of Collagen

With so many health ingredients on the market, you might wonder if collagen is a worthwhile investment. The truth is that collagen far exceeds the benefit of many other ingredients. Here’s how:

  • Skin – Several studies have been published on the effects of collagen on skin elasticity. It has been shown to make a significant reduction in the signs of aging on the skin.
  • Bone and Joint – Collagen bone studies abound. One proved that rats had an increased bone mass after being administered collagen supplements. Improvement in joint pain has been established for human test subjects. And patients with osteoarthritis have even found collagen supplements to be helpful in reducing symptoms.
  • Athletics – Since collagen is a protein, adding it into an athletic diet aids in muscle development and recovery.
  • Stomach – There are several hypotheses being tested concerning how collagen may help ease food sensitivity and digestion.
