What is collagen?

Collagen is an all-important protein that makes up a large part of many tissues in the human body (and all animals, for that matter). As much as 30% of the protein in your body is collagen.

 

Collagen molecules are made up of 3 intertwining strands of amino acids (the building blocks of all types protein). Because of their unique, fibre-like structure, collagen is both strong and flexible and this makes it indispensable for your many body parts and tissues that need precisely those qualities.

 

Collagen in your body is a major component of:

 

       

  • Bones
  •    

  • Joints
  •    

  • Cartilage
  •    

  • Tendons
  •    

  • Skin
  •    

  • Hair
  •    

  • Nails
  •    

  • Teeth

 

As you can see, with collagen, it’s all about elasticity and flexibility. In youth, our bodies tend to produce large quantities of top-quality collagen. This explains why we can move so easily when we’re young and why our skin is so smooth and our hair is so shiny. Unfortunately, life’s not very kind to these collagen-based tissues.

 

Collagen and age

Collagen production slows down naturally over the years. This process starts around your 25th year and is often worsened by external factors, like too much sunlight and alcohol and too little sleep and exercise.

 

As a result, the amount of collagen in the body, as well as its structure and quality, breaks down. Which might leave you with stiffening, unwilling joints, wrinkled, stretched skin, lacklustre hair, and brittle nails.

 

Exactly: these signs of collagen loss are also the signs of aging that most of us would rather not show to the world…

 

Types of collagen supplements

It's not really a surprise, then, that collagen preparations are so popular. Although collagen capsules are available, the most common form of collagen supplements is powder, which you can mix in water or other drinks, shakes, and smoothies. These days, you can even find them on the shelves in mainstream supermarkets and drugstores, in all sorts of tempting fruity flavours.

 

What is a good keto collagen supplement?

However, if you’re on a keto or low-carb diet, you need to be very careful with grabbing one of those. They are often filled to the brim with sugar and or artificial sweeteners, and you don’t want a daily dose of those, right?

 

Plus, you will want to know that your supplement meets your quality standards. You want a glucose-free, healthy, well-formulated collagen supplement that you can trust and that won’t mess up your diet!

 

So, what should you look for in a keto collagen supplement?

 

       

  1. Premium collagen
    Collagen occurs only in animal tissue, so there’s no such thing as vegan collagen. If you want to eat responsibly and sustainably, you may want to check the source of the collagen in your supplement. Make sure that the collagen comes from a well-fed animal so that your supplement contains no pollutants.
  2.  

       

  3. Low-carb / keto-friendly sweeteners
    Supplements aren’t always as healthy as the producer would have you believe, and collagen powders are no exception. They are all too often stuffed with sugar or artificial sweeteners that are the enemies of your low carb or keto diet! So check well that your supplement contains no sugar and is sweetened with Stevia or Erythritol.
  4.  

       

  5. Support for your keto diet
    Of course, it’s not compulsory, but why not choose a collagen supplement that also helps you in your keto journey? By choosing one with MCT Oil, your collagen shake also gives you a boost of ketone energy!
  6.  

       

  7. Great taste
    Because when all is said and done, there is really no need to compromise when it comes to taste!
