I get tons of questions about Collagen. It's a product Young Living has launched in some international markets which we don’t have in the US yet. BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME.
Why? Because WE ALREADY HAVE COLLAGEN.
We have so many amazing products loaded with collagen and collagen-producing ingredients, I get to support my body with the supplements I'm already taking and get that bonus of collagen production at the same time!!!
Let's break it down, shall we?
1. Agilease or BLM
These two supplements are favorites for joint mobility (BLM stands for Bones, Ligaments, Muscles). Achy joints? These need to be part of your regimen immediately. Mix up some of our new Golden Turmeric drink when you're taking your supplements and you'll get all the joint goodness you could ever need!!
So, Agilease and BLM both have Type II collagen. Type 2 collagen is one type of collagen protein found in the human body that helps to build connective tissues, cartilage and bones. It’s made up of chains of amino acids like arginine, glutamine, glycine and proline.
BUT. In addition to collagen, Agilease also has Hyaluronic Acid. (Ladies, you WANT this. You want ALLLLLL of this.) Hyaluronic Acid keeps the skin subtle and looking VERY well hydrated. It's an important ingredient for our skin! So, my vote is Agilease over BLM.
As a skincare bonus, grab some ART Renwal Serum -- this is one of my favorite products and is loaded with hyaluronic acid so you can apply it topically.
2. Super C.
Why Super C? Because.... wait for it.... wait for it..... Vitamin C is an antioxidant, or a compound that fights oxidative damage from free radicals in the body. It’s also an essential cofactor in the production of collagen, meaning that your body cannot make collagen without adequate Vitamin C.
Woah!!! That's super helpful.
So basically... I can keep pumping collagen INTO my body but if I'm doing well on vitamin C levels my body is going to actually promote its own collagen (which let's be real... is just as important!)
This powerhouse supplement CANNOT BE TALKED ABOUT ENOUGH. Seriously, you guys. Buy this. Take this. Get the endless benefits from this one simple supplement! Capsules or powder (you can buy it from YL either way - I prefer the capsules bc I can triple the dose easily).
Sulfurzyme is made up of MSM and wolfberry. Researching the benefits of MSM will knock your socks off because (among a million other amazing facts) it's NECESSARY for: collagen production, tighten saggy skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, AND, works together WITH Vitamin C to normalize collagen production!
If you're looking for a routine for your supplements: Everyday, I take the following THREE times x day (in addition to all my other supplements, but this lineup is for collagen benefits)
Super C (2)
And there you have it!!! COLLAGEN. You've already got it friends.
How many of you are using these three amazing supplements right now? How many of you are ordering them, stat?!
