COLLAGEN - WHAT YOUR BODY NEEDS.
Collagen is the single most abundant and plentiful protein in the body. It accounts for about a third of the body’s protein composition and is a central structural component in hair, skin, nails, joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bones, arteries, veins, muscles and the digestive tract.
You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. Actually, fun fact of the day, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
But, as we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, having an affect on our body and the way it functions. In recent years, many companies have jumped onboard to create a solution to helping one replace lost collagen, and have successfully gained popularity as a nutritional supplement and ingredient in shampoos and body lotions.
But do you know enough about your Collagen products to make an educated purchase and trust the brand with your in-take needs?
KDT Comms found a product that met all our Collagen needs, and MORE, and took the time to find out all the must-knows that you need to consider before investing in Collagen!
Be Bright, is a brand that exudes all the good things in life. Their logo and brand image is a prime example, as it so cleverly symbolizes and epitomises words such as “clever, intelligent, smart, sharp, alert, perceptive, ingenious, and resourceful.”
Be Bright has come up with a quality product that allows us to boost our naturally declining collagen levels with pure hydrolysed collagen powder, and we have to say, we LOVE IT!
It’s simple to use, easy to take, and most importantly, gives us peace of mind knowing we’re receiving all the collagen we need.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REPLACE LOST COLLAGEN?
A steady production of collagen is central to providing strength and structure for firm skin, healthy hair and strong nails. Its regenerative properties support and enhance the health of our bones, joints, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Its repairative properties support gut and vascular health. As we age, our body’s natural production of collagen slows down, bringing with it the unwanted effects of ageing.
As our natural supply of collagen tapers, the existing collagen structures become weak and disorganised. Introducing and maintaining hydrolysed collagen in your daily diet at any age is enormously beneficial, and supplementing with hydrolysed collagen from as early as your twenties is an excellent preventative measure in helping to maintain your collagen structures before they have a chance to start weakening and breaking down.

COLLAGEN IN THE BODY:
Here’s a closer look at the four main types of collagen and their role in your body:
Type I: This type accounts for 90% of your body’s collagen and is made of densely packed fibers. It provides structure to skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue, and teeth.
Type II: This type is made of more loosely packed fibers and is found in elastic cartilage, which cushions joints.
Type III: This type supports the structure of muscles, organs, and arteries.
Type IV: This type helps with filtration and is found in layers of your skin.
As you age, your body produces less and lower-quality collagen. One of the most common signs of this is in your skin, which becomes less firm and supple, and ain’t nobody got time for wrinkles!
LONGTERM AFFECTS OF TAKING HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN POWDER:
Hydrolysed collagen is rich in the amino acids proline, hydroxyproline, glycine, glutamic acid and alanine. These amino acids are what the body uses to build new collagen fibres and repair and restore weakened collagen structures.
The consistent daily intake of hydrolysed collagen feeds your body with these amino acids enabling this restorative process to occur.
Say goodbye to those expensive skincare bills and hello to repeat affordable Be Bright orders!
HOW TO TAKE IT:
Mix a minimum of 10g’s / 10 000mg’s (one heaped tablespoon) into a liquid or food of your choice. We enjoyed it best with our morning cup of coffee or tea.
It is essential to ensure the collagen is completely dissolved to avoid any clumps.
What we love: The recommended daily dosage, the 350g and 700g bottles will last you up to 35 and 70 days respectively.
