Newsflash! Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides are a great supplement for men! Especially men who have seen their 30th birthday come and go. This may come as a shock to some, but it’s true. For a long time, collagen was looked at as a supplement for women because of its ability to promote and fortify your hair, skin and nails. As the product grew, so did the research – now there are hundreds and hundreds of legitimate studies out there that prove collagen is much more than a supplement for external beauty. But let’s face the facts guys – it’s 2019 – and if you’re not taking care of your hair and skin in particular, you’re a dinosaur.
The point of this blog isn’t to tell men to clean up their act, comb their hair and take care of their skin. The point, just like everything we do, is to enhance your overall state of well-being, which is why Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides are very relevant to men. The days of taking whey protein and creatine are over – although maybe keep the creatine – that probably the only tried and tested supplement in the world of sports nutrition! It’s time to think outside of the box and look at other supplementation, which is why we are laying out some reasons for men to start taking collagen:
- Protein & Amino Acids: If you’re well-versed on training, dieting and supplementation you know that you should be getting most of your nutrients from food. However, for rigorous exercise and activity it’s also important to supplement protein and amino acids. Enter Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides – a pure, bioavailable source of protein with a wonderful amino acid profile. It’s the cleanest, optimal way to get those bioactives into your bloodstream ASAP…
- Digestive Health: This leads to my next point. Pure Collagen Peptides help improve your digestive health by fortifying your gut lining. This is SO SO SO important. Remember what we just said in #1 – you’re getting most of your nutrients from food – but if you have leaky gut or other digestive issues you’re missing out on a significant portion of those nutrients. You need those nutrients for muscle growth and repair, mental focus, energy and dozens of other reasons. We’ve said it a million times – everything starts with gut health. One thing two heaping scoops of dairy-based proteins do is wreak havoc on your gut!
- Joint & Tendon Support: Outside of hair, skin and nails the impact collagen peptides has on your joints and tendons is wonderful. If you were a warrior in your 20’s you’re probably reaping the benefits in the way of aches and pains in your 30s. If you’re still physically active today trying to be the hero in the gym or during a CrossFit session you need to be very aware that your joints and tendons aren’t what they use to be. You can reverse the degradation by supplementing collagen and start feeling better ASAP!
- Well… Hair and Skin: So, we covered all the macho stuff like building muscle and while collagen has many other benefits, we should include the perks supplementing offers to your hair and skin. Listen, we are all victims of our genetics and if you’re thinning up top you mine as well build muscle, fortify your gut, support your joints and tendons AND promote hair growth. It wouldn’t hurt to keep that skin looking fresh for the ladies as well.
The days of Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides being just for women is over. The days of trying to be macho are also over. It’s time to make the right decisions for your overall health and wellness and Zammex Nutrition’s Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides is where we start. You can do something as simple as dropping a scoop in your morning coffee and you’ll be on your way. If you’re feeling a bit crazy – try mixing it in your pre-workout, BCAAs or taking them post-workout. You will not be disappointed!
