Inside Our Bloom Up Blend
Achieving all of your macro and micronutrient goals, and still not feeling quite as energized as you'd like? Collagen may be your answer!
At Level Up, we have a number of vitamin and supplement blends that contain collagen. Today, we'll be looking at our Bloom UP blend. The Bloom UP blend is a multi-collagen complex with added absorption support. It's an absolute must for helping your vitality bloom — and here's why.
What Is Collagen?
You may first be wondering what collagen is. Collagen is a protein found in your body, and in high abundance. It's the most plentiful protein in your body, making up one-third of its protein composition. Yes, that means that one out of every three proteins in your body is collagen!
Collagen's presence is closely tied to its several important roles. First, collagen is one of the major components of all bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It's also found in various body parts. You'll find collagen in your teeth, eyes, skin, and blood cells. It provides incredible strength and flexibility. Collagen is what gives your skin the ability to bounce back with elasticity, and your joints the ability to be compressed as you move.
Generally speaking, you can think of collagen as a "glue," used by the body to hold other cells together. There are 16 types of collagen, but four of them are found most prominently. Type I collagen makes up 90 percent of the body's collagen, and it contains very densely packed fibers. It's responsible for the structure of your teeth, skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, and connective tissue. Type II collagen is a little more loosely packed and found in the elastic cartilage that cushions your joints. Type III supports the structure of muscles, organs, and arteries. Type IV collagen is also found in the skin and helps with the filtration of particles through the dermis.
Why Do You Need the Health Benefits of Collagen?
The main reason you may need the health benefits of collagen is because of the lifestyles we lead today. The food industry has hooked us on a processed foods diet that involves too much sugar and refined carbohydrates. In our quest for sun-kissed skin, we get too much radiation from outdoor exposure. Smoking is another factor that can reduce collagen production, as are some autoimmune disorders.
Most of all, however, as you age, your body naturally produces less and lower quality collagen.
You can help preserve your collagen by avoiding lifestyle factors that negatively impact it, but a collagen supplement daily dosage supports these daily efforts!
What Comes In a Bottle
Research is always coming out on the benefits of both animal-derived collagen peptides and vegan collagen peptides. Studies have so far shown solid evidence that collagen peptide supplements increase muscle mass and strength, play a protective role in disease progression. Researchers have also found that collagen improves the appearance of skin characteristics, diminishing fine lines, and wrinkles.
Our Bloom UP blend is a collagen peptide supplement. Each bottle comes with 90 gelatin capsules — a 30 day supply at three capsules per serving. It's made with hydrolyzed bovine hide collagen peptides, chicken bone broth collagen concentrate, hydrolyzed fish collagen peptides, and eggshell membrane collagen. It also comes with 50mg of DigeSEB® Enzyme blend to encourage additional absorption.
Health Benefits of Collagen in Bloom UP
Bloom UP is all of the best collagen supplements you need to help rehydrate, rejuvenate, and enhance your body. It provides five types of collagen, going beyond the typical top four to add collagen specific to the basal lamina layer of the skin. Within just a few weeks, you’ll notice the following changes:
Bloom Up supports collagen production, which contributes to skin elasticity and hydration for a more youthful appearance.
Better Joint Health
Collagen is a major component of our connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and bones. These building blocks promote joint health by supporting each facet, which can reduce the risk of injury.
Better Heart Health
Taking the best collagen supplements may help reduce the risk of heart-related conditions. This is due to collagen's role in blood cells and because collagen provides structure for the arteries.
Healthier Hair and Nails
Collagen has been shown to help increase the strength of nails and hair. Additionally, some studies conclude it makes both grow faster.
