Product of The Month: Collagen Max

Collagen Max

Collagen might just be one of the best supplements you can take to help maintain a healthy appearance and mitigate pain in the body. Inside the human body, collagen is used for the production of things like fortified hair, healthy nails, and new skin cells, helping to keep skin tight and free of wrinkles. Starting sometime in your 20’s, your body’s natural production of collagen begins to steadily decline each year – resulting in the visible signs of aging.

The team at the Happy Hormone Cottage and Integrative Hormone Center are proud to offer a carefully curated selection of nutraceuticals to our dedicated customer base of health-conscious patients. We have personally selected each item in our online store because of the value and benefits that they offer.

More About Collagen Max

Collagen Max contains three clinically studied ingredients, each providing its own unique benefits. This unique combination is what sets our product apart from other collagen supplements, offering a comprehensive set of protective and restorative properties that can help your body reduce the risk of injury and improve joint function, among others. These three incredible ingredients are as follows:

Fortigel® – Collagen Hydrolysate 

FORTIGEL®, backed by more than fifteen clinical studies, provides the body with bioactive collagen peptides (BCPs), which contain and assist in the development of connective tissues.

In cell culture studies, FORTIGEL® has been found to induce the synthesis of aggrecan (an important component in cartilage) and type II collagen, which plays a key role in cartilage elasticity, and support tendon and ligament matrix molecules.

Mobilee® – Hyaluronic Acid Extract

Mobilee® is a patented extract, rich in high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is responsible for the lubricating properties of synovial fluid. This fluid can be found in all of the joints in the body and helps them move and function smoothly, with as little friction as possible. 

Scientific evidence shows Mobilee® supports chondrocytes and synovial cell function and is two to four times more active than regular HA in supporting synovial fluid health.9

Tendoactive® – Type 1 Collagen Mucopolysaccharides

Tendoactive® is a combination of type I collagen and mucopolysaccharides. Adult tendons, ligaments, and fascial tissue are comprised mainly of type I molecules organized into structural units. 

While collagen provides much of tendon/ligament structure and strength, mucopolysaccharides are the “glue” that holds them together and allows them to stretch, flex, bend and maintain their resilience

Five Benefits of Taking Collagen Supplements

1. May Ease Joint Pain

Cartilage is highly susceptible to age-related wear and tear. As your cartilage weakens and deteriorates you may start to feel joint aches, pains, and chronic stiffness. It’s possible that upping your collagen intake may help reduce joint pain and alleviate symptoms of arthritis. It is best to take Collagen supplements as a preventative measure, starting early in life, supplementing that natural decline that we mentioned above.

Recent studies have observed patients with varying degrees of Osteoarthritis as they take collagen supplements and have noticed a reduction in related OA symptoms like pain and stiffness.

2. May Reverse Skin Aging

As you get older and collagen production declines – fine lines, loose skin, and dryness can occur. So what happens if you increase your collagen intake with supplements? One of the most well-known benefits is helping to maintain radiant, vibrant skin. This essential protein helps in the production of elastin, adding tightness to the skin, helping it to appear more youthful and healthy.

This 2019 Study conducted by the NIH has shown that Collagen supplements significantly improve skin hydration, elasticity, and density.

3. Helps Build Muscle and Burn Fat

Collagen is an essential part of the formation of major tissue groups and bodily structures. Also an important component of muscle tissue, it can have a big impact when it comes to building muscle mass. 

Collagen also contains a concentrated amount of glycine, an amino acid that is critical for the synthesis of our body’s natural production of creatine. Creatine helps boost the production of ATP, a chemical responsible for providing muscles with the fuel needed to power through your workout. This powerful chemical reaction all starts with collagen!

4. Supports Normal Rejuvenation of Healthy Hair and Nails 

As collagen levels naturally decline, you will notice the luster and shine gradually fade from your hair and nails. Along with changing appearance, you may also notice the rate at which your nails and hair grow declines as well.

Routinely taking Collagen Max supplements are an excellent way to maintain healthy-looking hair and nails and help encourage normal growth.

5. May Improve Digestive Health

As mentioned above, collagen is an integral part of the production and repair of tissues inside the body. Inside of your gut, there is connective tissue supporting and strengthening the protective lining of your digestive tract. 

This is important because if this barrier function of your intestine fails, referred to as leaky gut syndrome, it can allow particles to enter the bloodstream, resulting in inflammation among other complications.
