What is collagen for?
Already our mother taught us that true beauty comes from within. And just how right she was in this respect is proven by scientists every day anew. Collagen is becoming more and more the focus of their research. The protein is the main characteristic of strong nails, hard bones, enduring muscles, good connective tissue, and supple joints. Collagen is the newly discovered fountain of youth that we all have been waiting for so many years. Especially delicious, we can enhance our beauty with collagen shakes or as an ingredient in cooking and baking.
What is so special about collagen as a powder?
Collagen occurs in the body and is even produced there itself. There are different kinds of collagen, as many as 28 types, which have different functions in the repair of our carnal temple. Collagen is also found in animal protein, but unfortunately only in a very small percentage. Therefore, it is important to supply the body with collagen daily through high-quality external sources. With Collamin, all of this is possible.
In creating the perfect recipe for our collagen powders, which are also ideal for collagen shakes, we have of course taken care to ensure the right mix of the different types of collagen. This is why Collamin has a particularly high percentage of type 1 collagen, which makes up more than 70% of the protein content in the hair, nails, skin, and connective tissue. Another main component of Collamin is type 2 collagen, which is mainly needed in muscles and joints. This type of collagen prevents muscle breakdown and can even rebuild joint fluid over time. So if you drink a collagen shake every day, you will suffer much less often from pain in limbs!
Our Collamin powder
For this, it is sufficient if you use Collamin every day. Our products are available in many different versions. They all consist of 100% pure collagen, which was produced and packaged in Switzerland under strict conditions and controls. It is also sodium-free, consists of 0% fat, and then does not contain any gluten. Collamin is of course a natural product and therefore does not consist of any added sugar or artificial sweeteners. It is also perfect for people who suffer from shellfish allergies.
The product is available in different flavors. For recipes for cooking and baking with Collamin, the neutral-flavored version is best suited for making sauces, dips, and soups even creamier. The neutral-tasting variant is also perfectly suited for fruit shakes. However, if you don’t want to add fruit to your shake, the product versions in the delicious flavors are highly recommended.
Of course, Collamin Powder was designed to be perfectly suitable for collagen shakes. The powder is easily soluble in water and can also be taken with milk or other liquids. It is also heat resistant and can therefore also be used for warm collagen shakes to replace a meal.
Why does the body need collagen every day?
Products containing collagen, such as creams and oils, are only of short-term benefit. Unfortunately, they only work on the outer layers of the skin, namely the epidermis. To achieve a profound result in the long term, the oral supply of collagen is essential. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is synthesized by the body itself.
Unfortunately, with advancing age, and this already from the age of 25, collagen production decreases significantly. And since the valuable amino acid stores water and provides hair and nails with elasticity and resilience, we see the first signs of a collagen deficiency at the age of 30. Wrinkles have formed, cellulite has developed and hair and nails break off more and more frequently. The intake of normal protein powder does not cover the daily increasing demand for collagen.
Fortunately, there is a solution to the problem… the daily intake of Collamin in the form of collagen shakes!
What is a collagen shake?
The answer to the question is very simple: a collagen shake is beauty in a bottle. For a collagen shake, water, milk, or juice is mixed with the amino acid powder according to a delicious collagen shake recipe. Collamin is very soluble and therefore easy to mix even without a mixer. You just have to stir with a spoon. Fruits can also be added, especially collagen shakes that are mixed with several fruits and then pureed.
Collagen shake recipes for the perfect start to the day
Fruits with a high content of carbohydrates are particularly suitable for breakfast. (e.g. bananas, pineapples, mangos). In this way, the body gets enough energy to stimulate the metabolism and prepare its performance for the day. Juices and coconut milk are also particularly delicious for breakfast. They can be perfectly mixed with the fruits. Would be particularly exotic pith can be happy to add a spoonful of cinnamon. Those of you with a sweet tooth can also use a teaspoon of cocoa. But please use real cocoa powder! Only pure cocoa powder can lower blood sugar levels, prevent high blood pressure, and reduce oxidative stress in the body. All these ingredients can be perfectly mixed with Collamin.
Collagen shake recipes that replace lunch
For these collagen shakes, we recommend that you increase the dose of Collamin slightly. There should be at least 10 to 15 grams in a shake that replaces a meal. Especially if you want to warm up the shake to have a warm meal, we recommend fruit and vegetables that you like to eat warm. To fill the stomach even more, yogurt is recommended here for mixing. So you can even spoon the shake.
Green collagen shake recipes
For the extra healthy kick, you can create a green collagen shake by choosing spinach, kale, romaine salad, or broccoli. This is their main ingredient. Then choose between two or three fruits. We recommend grapes, apples, oranges, mango, kiwi, pear, or cucumber. Then add a sufficient amount of Collamin and mix it with either soy milk, fruit juice, or water.
