Surprising Benefits of Collagen
Here’s some more surprising benefits of collagen protein. Plus learn how and when to take it for your best results!
1. Digestive Aid
Collagen soothes and heals the digestive tract and helps repair the mucous lining. It also helps break down the protein and fat from foods, making them easier for the body to digest.
To help with digestion, before meals, add 1 scoop of collagen peptides (Find HERE) to your beverage. Doing so will increase protein absorption and hydrochloric acid production. It will also help heal your digestive tract.
2. Skin Health
Some doctors refer to collagen as the new anti-aging product of the century and I have to agree! It ensures cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of the skin. Collagen is primarily composed of the amino acids glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline. These particular amino acids are shown to reduce the signs of aging. Clinical research has shown that Vital Protein’s Collagen promotes younger looking skin, improves skin moisture level, improves skin smoothness, improves the signs of deep wrinkles and improves skin suppleness.

To maximize skin benefits, drink THIS green tea frappuccino and add in 1-2 scoops of collagen peptides. Drink at least 3-4 times a week. I drink this daily for maximum skin benefits!
3. Weight Loss
Collagen is a great source of protein and provides 18 grams of protein per 2 scoops! Studies show that collagen peptides consumed at breakfast are 40% more satiating than other proteins (such as whey or soy) and correlate to a 20% reduction of food intake at lunch. (source)
If you are looking to jumpstart your weight loss efforts, try THIS filling breakfast shake (my favorite!) each morning and add in 2 scoops of collagen peptides.
4. Joint and Bone Health
The amino acids in collagen, gylcine and proline, repair tissue, lessen inflammation and provide relief from joint pain, similar to taking cortisone or ibuprofen. The glycine also speeds wound healing, helps stiff joints and promotes recovery. Another more recent study assessed the efficiency of collagen peptides in a randomized, double blind, controlled multicenter trial, in which 250 subjects with primary osteoarthritis of the knee were given 10g of collagen peptides daily. The results showed a significant improvement in knee joint comfort, and again subjects with the greatest joint deterioration benefited most. (source)
Several studies also show that supplementing with collagen builds bone density. Collagen peptides stimulate osteoblasts, which are the cells responsible for bone formation. (source)
If you are looking to lessen inflammation or build bone density, try THIS delicious turmeric tea and add in 1-2 scoops of collagen peptides. Consume at least 3-4 times a week (ideally, daily) for maximum benefits.
5. Athletic Performance
The specific amino acids, primarily glycine and proline help repair tissue, lessen inflammation, shortens recovery after exercise and helps with sports related injuries. Supplementation with collagen peptides showed a reduction of risk for injuries on muscle, tendons, and ligaments in athletes. Also the glycine and arginine content in collagen aids athletic performance and help maintain and restore muscle mass. Arginine stimulates the release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland, which is known to increase muscle mass and that may explain the performance gains. (source)
If you’d like to increase your athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury, try THIS protein shake using collagen peptides after a workout!
6. Sleep Tonic
Glycine plays an important role in the neurotransmitters within the brain. Recent research shows that glycine improves sleep quality who have difficulty sleeping. Ingesting collagen improves sleep quality but it also helps reduce daytime sleepiness and helps improve memory during waking hours.
If you could use some help getting better sleep, try this bed time sleep tonic: Mix 1 tablespoon collagen peptides with chamomile tea an hour before bed. Chamomile further helps sleep and relaxation, so this bedtime tonic works extremely well!
