[BREAKTHROUGH RESEARCH] One Tablespoon of Collagen a Day Reverses Skin & Bone Ageing.
New clinical studies are showing that a small amount of daily collagen supplementation is having a profound effect on bone density, skin wrinkling and cellulite, and skin texture.

Before and after collagen + pro-metabolic diet results (12 weeks)
There are a few key anti-ageing battlegrounds that matter more than most as far as your looks and function go.
However, none are as important to the way you look, feel and function as your skin, bones and muscles.
Whilst collagen has some great lean muscle improving qualities, in todays article, we're going to knuckle down on making improvements to your skin and bones with the help of a little collagen.
1. Studies Show Age-Related Bone Loss is Reversible With Collagen
Building your metabolism, balancing hormones (estrogen to progesterone), strength training, high protein diet, and nutrient dense diet are all important supporters of bone health.
Women over the age of 40 can lose more than 1% of their bone (and lean muscle) every year (1).
NEW RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT WOMEN TAKING JUST 5 GRAMS OF COLLAGEN PEPTIDES DAILY BUILT 6% MORE BONE IN 12 MONTHS. INCREDIBLY, THIS IMPROVEMENT WAS SHOWN IN POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN - THE MOST AT RISK GROUP.
That's an astonishing 7% annual swing once typical losses in bone are considered. The graph below shows the incredible progress the women made - without doing any strength training or any other dietary intervention (2).
Imagine the progress you can make with collagen + strength training!
2. Collagen Reduces Cellulite & Wrinkles, Improves Skin Texture & Hydration.
Research is starting to pile up in support of the skin improving, bone-building benefits of collagen peptides. Here are a few of the research findings I've uncovered:
Study 1, 2 and 3.
Yet perhaps the most impressive finding of all, is a visual one. The photos below are of cellulite effected skin, belonging to a post-menopausal woman.
What's remarkable, is the difference in collagen density, how tightly the collagen is packed in and organised, the smoothness of the skin barrier (the surface of the skin), and how much stronger looking it is.
3. How To Use Collagen For Best Results
I see the progress made in the above skin images in real-life every day.
I see it in the progress my dad has made with his thicker hair and skin (he would constantly return from the garden, skin torn to shreds and bleeding after the gentlest encounter with a twig), to the progress of our Perfectly Pure customers.
We hear this kind of feedback, and feedback around skin, bone density, digestion, cellulite reduction, less bloating and more - every day.
That might be the single best part of the job.
As far as using Perfectly Pure Collagen Peptides goes, the best thing to do is to add a tablespoon of it to your tea, coffee or smoothie every morning.
Quality protein can be difficult to get in the morning when it's all "rush rush." Perfectly Pure dissolves in the hot liquid, has absolutely no taste or smell or colour, and the collagen peptides remain perfectly intact up to 150 degrees Celsius (302F).
