Could collagen improve your fitness? 

Collagen supplements are often associated with skin, nail and hair health, yet did you know that collagen may also benefit your athletic performance and fitness? 

Collagen comprises 30% of the protein in our bodies and is a crucial building block for your muscles. Therefore, taking a collagen supplement such as Kollo could help improve your physical fitness by increasing your muscle mass!

10% of your muscle tissue is constituted by collagen and so taking Kollo is a great step towards ensuring that your muscles remain strong, flexible and healthy. Collagen contains the amino acids glycine and arginine which are necessary for the synthesis of creatine. Creatine helps your muscles produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise, aiding muscle contractions and helping to build muscle strength, size, and power. So, if you are searching for a nutritional boost to keep your body looking lean and feeling strong, then Kollo is the perfect collagen supplement for you!   

Taking Kollo premium liquid collagen after your workout could help increase body mass, thereby improving your athletic performance. Such benefits are particularly useful for older people who wish to maintain their fitness and muscles as they age. As you grow older, your collagen levels decrease. Collagen is a major component of your muscles and so less collagen has been linked to a reduction in muscle mass. Such age-related muscle loss, also known as sarcopenia, may be reversed by the consumption of collagen. A 2015 study, carried out by the Institute for Sports and Sports Science at the University of Freiburg, found that elderly men who supplemented their workouts with collagen saw a greater improvement in their muscle mass, muscle strength, and fat loss after undertaking a 12-week guided resistance training programme with three sessions per week. 

Yet, collagen is not just a miracle-worker for those hoping to stay physically active and fit as they battle the negative effects of ageing. Kollo Health may also be used by younger athletes to increase muscle mass. In fact, oxidation, inflammatory reactions and muscle microlesions can occur in the muscles during high-intensity exercise and lead to collagen loss in all age groups. For this reason, many athletes have been shown to have significantly lower collagen levels than non-athletes of the same age. This is where Kollo comes in! Kollo Liquid Collagen could very well help replenish collagen levels after an intense workout, while its high amino acid content may aid muscle repair and recovery so that you can really feel the benefits of your efforts after exercising. 

So, regardless of your age, if you are passionate about exercise and maintaining your fitness then Kollo is the perfect choice for you. Our little wonder product comes in a handy sachet that you can take anywhere and has been clinically proven for real results. Why not give it a try and experience the benefits for yourself?
