Your body has so many cells, parts, and systems. And many of them are held together with collagen. The most abundant protein in your body is all about connection and strength. That’s because collagen’s adhesive qualities are only matched by its ability to provide structure and strength.
The roots of the word “collagen” go back to the Greek word kólla, which means glue. And now all that talk about connections and adhesive effects starts to make a little bit more sense.
Collagen is a structural element of bones, muscles, tendon, and ligaments. Collagen and skin are always talked about together, because it’s a major component of your largest organ. But that’s just the start. Collagen is also found in:
- blood vessels
- the cornea of your eye
- discs between your vertebrae
- the digestive tract
The fibrous nature and strength of collagen make it an ideal protective casing for your kidneys and other organs. And it also helps connect cells all over your body to each other – bones, ligaments, and organs—all the way down to the cellular level.
About 90 percent of your collagen is Type I. That’s the strongest type because it’s made of fibers densely packed together. It’s a structural component of bones, skin, tendons, cartilage, teeth, and other connective tissue. And can stretch—a lot, without breaking.
Your muscles, organs, and arteries rely on Type III.
Bring Out Your Best with Type I and III Collagen Peptides
A glance in the mirror is often enough to help you identify where your skin health is thriving. You can also learn where your skin needs more support. Even though the analysis you’re doing is on the outside, the solution could start on the inside.*
Drinking a collagen supplement can help you meet your skin health goals. And you’ll see the benefits reflected back at you after incorporating Advanced Collagen into your beauty routine.*
That’s because fine lines and wrinkles are no match for the beauty-boosting benefits that collagen has to offer. Advanced Collagen supports skin health and helps combat the visible signs of aging. Collagen peptides maintain the elasticity of your skin, supporting your skin’s natural smoothness and bounce.*
Collagen also supports moisture retention and can help combat loose and lackluster skin. A firm, youthful complexion is well within your reach when you have the support of collagen peptides in your diet.*
That’s why USANA Advanced Collagen drink mix relies on types I and III collagen peptides. Collagen peptides (or protein chains) create strong connective tissues and give your skin its shape. They’re also responsible for your skin’s elasticity, or stretchiness.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, but its natural production declines over time. This often leads to your skin showing visible signs of aging (something you might notice in the mirror). That’s why it’s important to stock up on the protein that can support the appearance of youthful skin. Bask confidently in your fresh-faced glow with USANA’s skin-support supplement—Advanced Collagen.*
Learn About Collagen with these Amazing Facts
30 Facts that make Collagen Your Coolest Protein
Your skin isn’t the only facet of beauty supported by Advanced Collagen. You can support your body’s many important functions with the key ingredients that make Advanced Collagen a perfect addition to your luxury skincare experience and health-supporting supplementation. Boosting nutrients like biotin, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C all play supporting roles in the Advanced Collagen drink formula. When they come together these key ingredients create a supplement that boasts many skin-health and body benefits.*
Biotin (Vitamin B7)
Beauty isn’t just about skin. Your nails and hair can be strengthened with the support of biotin. Vitamin B7 (biotin) is included in the Advanced Collagen drink formula for added benefit*
One of Biotin’s purposes in Advanced Collagen is to support healthy skin hydration levels. Finger- and toenails originate in the deep layers of your skin. Your nails need access to ample hydration to appear smooth and strong and grow quickly.*
And biotin doesn’t only maintain healthy nails. This B vitamin also supports the appearance of full, shiny, healthy-looking hair. Biotin can help optimize hair volume and maintain healthy hair texture, length, and strength.*
Biotin also helps maintain healthy bones and normal gene expression, while supporting the production of glucose from sources other than carbohydrates (Glucose is a simple sugar your body uses as energy. It usually comes from carbohydrates. But biotin is part of enzyme reactions that make this important energy source out of fats and proteins).
Biotin also aids in the regulation of which genes are expressed. That’s because it affects important proteins called transcription factors (proteins that help read the DNA code for the cell). Biotin’s entanglement with DNA doesn’t end there. It also modifies special proteins in the cell nucleus that help organize DNA. This packaging process also impacts gene regulation.
Hyaluronic acid works alongside collagen’s stretchy support to deliver additional cushioning power to your complexion. Together, they support healthy skin aging and work to maintain your skin’s smooth and youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body and acts as a cushion or lubricant between tissues and joints. This cushioning quality makes hyaluronic acid an important component of any skincare routine. USANA Advanced Collagen capitalizes on the power of this bouncy biological compound by including it in this potent formulation.*
Antioxidants are essential to any luxury skincare experience.
Free radicals and environmental damage are at the root of many skin-health concerns. When you supplement your skincare routine with antioxidants like vitamin C, you are supporting the neutralization of oxidative stress.*
Damage from free radicals can accrue over time and show up in your skin as fine lines and wrinkles. With the help of vitamin C and the collagen support from Advanced Collagen, you can restore and maintain your youthful radiance and glow.*
Vitamin C is possibly the most well-known nutrient in the world. Much study has revealed wide-ranging impacts on maintaining your health. In addition to supporting collagen production, vitamin C also
- Acts as an antioxidant, helping protect you from free radicals by shedding electrons to neutralize damaging compounds
- Plays an important part in maintaining healthy immune function through support for white-blood-cell production and protection
- Supports cardiovascular health
