The Shocking Truth on Whether Collagen Protein Supplements Really Work

Pure collagen protein supplements are being marketed to relieve achy joints, help you lose weight, build muscle and improve the skin’s appearance. Sounds like something of a miracle drug, doesn’t it? There is very little evidence to support these claims.

In the latest report, the need for clinical trials was mentioned, because up to this point, there have only been pre-clinical trials. While there is no reason to believe that the supplements are not “safe”, there no real reason to believe that they are effective, either. Manufactures may have “jumped the gun” on this one.

The only real benefit of supplementing pure collagen protein is to increase your daily intake of amino acids, without increasing your calorie intake. There are however, more well-balanced supplements that include amino acids, vitamins, cofactors, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients.
There is another kind of supplement that has one study supporting its ability to increase the skin’s firmness. That study was conducted using omega3 fish oil. After three months of supplementation, researchers measured a 10% improvement in the skin’s firmness. That’s great, but wouldn’t a 42% improvement be better? Or, how about combining the two to get a 52% improvement?

There is a new line of anti-aging skincare products on the market that has clinical studies to back up the company claims. In less than three weeks of daily use, researchers measured a 42% improvement in firmness, a 27% improvement in moisture content, a 14% improvement in the skin’s ability to retain moisture and a 160% increase in skin cell proliferation.

The cream is really another nutritional supplement, but its one that you apply directly to your face and body. It contains protein, antioxidants, vitamins, coenzymes, essential fatty acids and nothing artificial. That might be the best news of all.

You know, your skin’s cells produce pure collagen protein or at least pro-collagens, which bind with other peptides to form fibrils. Bundles of fibrils form collagen/elastin fibers. The processes go on every day and night, throughout your life. They just slow down with age. But, it looks like we don’t just have to sit back and take it. We can do something about it.

By taking dietary supplements like resveratrol and using nourishing creams, it looks like we can reduce our risk of life threatening diseases, live to a ripe old age and look better while we are doing it.

I can’t recommend a pure collagen protein supplement. The protein would be broken down by the digestive system into its component amino acid parts. There are not many amino acids in collagens. The few that there are can also be synthesized by the body.

But, if you decide to buy one, remember that it’s not a miracle pill. It’s just another nutritional supplement.

When you shop for creams and lotions, look for natural products that are free of artificial preservatives and added fragrances. Treat them well and your skin’s cells will produce plenty of pure collagen protein, all by itself.
