First and foremost let’s get down to the basic question we all have when we hear talk about collagen, WHAT IS IT?! Collagen is commonly known as the most abundant protein in our body that rejuvenates and maintains hair, skin, and nails strong and healthy. But it’s not just a superficial beauty booster, it’s much more. Collagen is a fundamental building block of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments!
Derived from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue; collagen, in a sense, is the “glue” that holds all these things together. It provides structure to various places in our body, predominately in our bones, skin, tendons, and ligaments. However, after 25 our natural collagen production declines and the structure we once had falls with it. That’s where we at Just Bloom come in!
Benefits of collagen
After years of sports and heavy lifting, I ended up having really bad knee pain that would cause me to end my workouts. The collagen powder was my go-to especially since all it took was one pouch a day! Supplementing with Just Bloom Collagen helped reduce my joint pain enough to get me back into the gym. Like many, I took collagen with a grain of salt. I believed it to be a snake oil scam with false promises of bouncing back to where I was physically a few years ago. Three weeks is all it took to start noticing the results! Possibly even sooner because I had become so acquainted with my knee pain that once it disappeared I hadn’t noticed until I was deep into week 3! As collagen production declines with age we begin to notice stiff joints, weaker bones, hair loss, wrinkly skin, and brittle nails. Taking collagen can help counteract the natural decline brought on with age and make your skin look firmer, aid with bone health, reduce joint pain, and strengthen nails.
In addition, collagen may help improve:
- Stronger, more elastic skin, so it may prove helpful in combating scars, stretch marks, cellulite and damaged skin
- Promotes longer, stronger, less brittle nails
- May be able to help with hair loss by promoting hair growth
- Is a super protein that promotes fullness and weight loss
- Promotes gut health
Just Bloom vs. the Competitor?
There are various collagen brands, each with a unique twist and added ingredients designed to fit a certain, usually active lifestyle. However, collagen needs vary from person to person and rely heavily on their lifestyle and diet. What works for an active person might not fit that of someone who has no time to be active. Depending on the collagen brand many recommend anywhere between 12-15 grams of collagen, but in reality, 2.5-10 grams is more than enough to start noticing results. In addition, many collagen companies use fillers and mask the collagen aftertaste with strong artificial flavors and added sugars.
Just Bloom is different in part due to its versatility and easy to absorb formula that doesn’t contain the collagen aftertaste and fillers many collagen products utilize.
