Collagen has become a buzzword in the last few years and for good reason – collagen makes up a significant component of many tissues such as 65% to 80% of tendons, 70% of ligaments, 70% of cartilage, and 23% of bones. It also is found in your hair, skin, nails and intestinal tract. Collagen is FULL of benefits; however, our natural production of collagen begins to drop off in our twenties and may only be 50% by age 60.
It’s very difficult to get enough from diet alone, and processed foods that many people consume too frequently only deplete our collagen stores even more. That’s where collagen supplementation comes in.
Benefits of Collagen Supplementation
Here are some common benefits you may notice – both inside and out – from a high-quality collagen supplement like Key Collagen which we created last year, adhering to the highest standard of quality.
Those are the physical things you’re going to be able to see, but at NutriKey and our parent company Nutritional Weight & Wellness we aim for healing from the inside as well. Collagen helps to do just that.
How Key Collagen is different from other collagen products:
How to Use Key Collagen
Key Collagen is a flavorless powder, so you can add it to your coffee, tea, and yogurt or in your smoothie. We encourage you to use Key Collagen for at least three months to determine how your body may benefit. Many of the benefits may take longer than three months; remember that the damage you’re trying to repair didn’t happen in a short amount of time. We all want instant results, but anything that heals your body for the long haul takes time.
