How taking collagen can boost your workouts and speed up recovery time.

Collagen often gets spoken about in terms of skincare, but in fact it has a whole lot of other benefits – in particular where our fitness levels are concerned. While we often get told that collagen makes up the building blocks of our skin, it is actually the most abundant protein in your body. As well as giving you plumper skin, more vibrant hair and stronger nails, it also provides the foundation for our cartilage and muscles – which are vital for an effective exercise regime.

However as we age, our natural supply of collagen starts to deplete at a rate of 1.5% every year, falling by as much as 30% by the time we reach the age of 45. So taking a collagen supplement either before or after a workout will not only benefit your skin, but can also help you to preserve muscle mass and keep joints and ligaments healthy.

During and after exercise, your muscles can lose protein as a result of oxidation, inflammatory reactions, and muscle micro lesions.  Studies have shown that, due to its high amino acid content, taking collagen after a gym session can actually help to regenerate proteins that get broken down during exercise, allowing you to rebuild muscle mass as well as increasing muscle strength. Ideal if you’re looking to get toned and fit for next year. And if you happen to sustain a muscle injury during exercise, taking collagen can speed up the healing process. This is because collagen formation has been identified by scientists as the key process when it comes to healing torn and ruptured muscles, working to regenerate muscle fibres and produce connective scar tissue.

A great way to top up your collagen levels is by taking Rejuvenated’s award-winning Collagen Shots before or after a workout. It features a high-strength 10,000 mg hydrolysed marine collagen, (combined with essential antioxidants and vitamins B3, B5, C with zinc and copper) to naturally increase your body’s collagen production – and make the health benefits of your exercise regime go even further!
