This protein can help you build muscle, improve digestion & promote healthy aging.

Your body needs collagen to support weight loss, healthy muscle, tissue, digestion, skin, hair, nails and even immunity.

THE PROBLEM

The problem of decline.

Did you know that, after the age of 20, natural collagen production decreases by 1% every year?

Here’s the problem:

  1. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body.

  2. Your body needs collagen for muscle, hair, skin, nails, digestion, immunity and more…

  3. This natural decline may comprise only about 3% of your collagen decline.

  4. External factors like UV exposure, stress, and diet make up the other 97% of collagen decline.

  5. The American Diet is largely devoid of collagen

  6. Many people view collagen as only a “beauty product” - it’s actually an important health and wellness product.

Here's the truth - Your body needs collagen to support weight loss, healthy muscle, tissue, digestion, skin, hair, nails, and even immunity. If you're over 20, ignoring collagen decline can lead to degradation of all of the above. Supplementing with collagen may delay the onset of the effects of aging.

THE SCIENCE

How collagen works.

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, making up about ⅓ of its protein consumption.

Collagen is a major building block of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and even teeth.

You can think of it as the “glue” that holds you together. In fact, the word collagen comes from the Greek word “kolla” which means glue.

THE DECLINE

How does collagen decline happen?

As you age, your body produces less and less collagen - about 1% decline per year after age 20.†

This is due to several factors, one of which is completely unavoidable. As we age, our cells repeatedly divide. With each division, cells become shorter and lower quality until they cannot reproduce again - this is called cell senescence.

Never fear though - some scientists argue that only about 3% of collagen decline is due to unavoidable internal factors. The remaining 97% of collagen decline may be due to external factors under our control.

  • UV Exposure - Excessive sunlight damages collagen fibres and creates a negative feedback loop in the skin.†

  • Stress - Stress can cause the breakdown of collagen and increase inflammation.†

  • Inflammatory diets - Diets high in processed sugars, simple carbohydrates and processed meats activate the immune system and promote inflammation, interfering with cell repair and generation.†

The final, and possibly most important reason is that people lack the building blocks of collagen. Your body creates collagen by combining the amino acids glycine and proline. This process also requires Vitamin C.

THE ACTION STEPS

What is the best way to produce more collagen?

The best way to get these amino acids? By consuming collagen!

When you consume collagen from other animals, the protein is broken down into the component amino acids, which your body turns into its own collagen.

Collagen in, collagen out!

“Do I get enough collagen by eating meat?”

The vast majority of collagen in animals is contained in the skin/hide, bones and connective tissues of the animal.

In today’s society, we typically only consume the muscle meats of the animals, which are largely devoid of collagen. This is why a collagen supplement is the best option for collagen creation.

THE KEY

Why you should switch your protein supplement.

zuCOLLAGEN offers a unique advantage over whey and plant proteins by focusing on the body's broader nutritional needs beyond just muscle repair.

While whey protein provides all nine essential amino acids, these can be fully obtained through a regular diet, potentially leading to an imbalance in amino acid intake.†

Plant proteins often fall short in both essential and non-essential amino acids.

Collagen, however, delivers a rich supply of crucial non-essential amino acids not commonly found in muscle meats, which our diets heavily rely on.

This makes zuCOLLAGEN an essential supplement to address collagen deficiencies, supporting muscle growth and enhancing the health of hair, skin, nails, and digestion. †

Its formulation is easily absorbed, thanks to being hydrolyzed, and it's sourced from various animals, ensuring a comprehensive blend of amino acids.

By incorporating zuCOLLAGEN, you're not just supplementing your diet but enriching your body's overall wellness, filling the gaps left by conventional protein sources.
