Want To Help Slow Aging?
What do wrinkles, creases, and stiff, painful joints have in common?
They’re all signs indicating that your body’s collagen levels may be critically low and in need of urgent replenishing.
Unfortunately, collagen levels start to decline when we’re barely in our mid-20s.
And things get worse as we grow older.
For instance, collagen breaks down four times faster in people in their 80s, relative to when they were back in their 20s.
But what is collagen, what are the benefits of collagen, and how can we maintain its levels so that we can remain healthy as we age?
What Is Collagen and
What Does It Do?
Collagen is a protein. Indeed, it is the most abundant protein in the body, along with being a key building block component in all of the body’s connective tissues.
You may be surprised to learn that collagen makes up to 30 percent of all the proteins in your body and a staggering 70 percent of the proteins in your skin!
The musculoskeletal system is made up of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and holds tissues and organs together.
Collagen helps to construct the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system, which provides your body with form, support, stability, and movement.
Collagen also ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of your skin, which is directly related to how youthful you look.
In other words, maintaining your body’s collagen level is the key to having glowing, wrinkle-free skin, and countering the effects of aging and pollution.
The dermis – the layer of skin that provides the skin’s foundation – is partly responsible for your skin’s elasticity and flexibility and also helps to cushion your body from stress and strain.
No surprises then that collagen is the main component of the dermis. Breakdown of collagen or not having enough of it in your body is what leads to wrinkle formation and other skin problems.
Ligaments are a type of connective tissue that attach two bones to each other and hold your joints together. Similarly, tendons are another type of connective tissue that keep your muscles attached to your bones.
All of these – bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles – are made up of proteins. Once again, their predominant protein component is collagen.
In other words, having enough collagen helps to ensure the health and self-renewing capability of your skin, hair, tendons, cartilage, bones, and joints, as well as your blood vessels and gut.
What Happens to Collagen
as We Grow Older?
As we age, our body’s ability to make collagen begins to slow down.
Our skin becomes fragile and less elastic.
Wrinkles start to appear.
Our hair turns grey, our joints lose their flexibility and become stiff, and our bone quality begins to deteriorate.
The good news is – even if we cannot make the same levels of collagen as we once did, stimulating our innate collagen production can potentially reverse some of these signs and symptoms of aging.
For instance, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in 2014 by Proksch and colleagues looked at the role of supplemental collagen peptide in eye wrinkle formation.
A total of 114 women, aged 45 to 65 years, received either the collagen peptide or control, once daily for 8 weeks. Eye wrinkles were measured before starting the treatment, after 4 and 8 weeks, as well as 4 weeks after the last intake.
Consumption of collagen peptide was seen to lead to a statistically significant reduction of eye wrinkle volume by up to 20 percent –
and this effect was long-lasting. The authors also detected significantly higher levels of procollagen type I and elastin in the treated volunteers, suggesting that supplemental collagen boosted the body’s own production of collagen, which may have helped reduce eye wrinkle formation.
This is why it’s vital that you either
- 1. Start producing more collagen or
- 2. Take a high-quality collagen supplement daily
More on both of those in a second.
First, here are some more fascinating facts about collagen:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – so you can keep looking young and radiant...i ii
- Keep your arteries squeaky clean – for a super-healthy heart that keeps ticking well into your “Golden Years”...iii
- Ease joint discomfort – for staying as active as you want iv v
- Rev up your metabolism – so you can say “goodbye” to stubborn fat, build muscle, and feel greatvi vii
Plus, it can even:
- Protect your liver – so you can flush out dangerous toxins and feel more energy and clarity throughout your day...viii
- Boost your mood – so you can be your BEST, more often ... ix
- Help you sleep better – for feeling like a “million bucks” without any grogginess in the mornings...x
- And a whole lot more...
This is why it’s such a critical protein. It plays a role in a variety of your body’s natural processes.
Plain and simple, if you want to slow down the effects of aging and live longer, you have to create more collagen!
5 Ways to Replenish Your
Here are 5 ways to help maintain healthy collagen levels as you age:
#1 Bone Broth
Bone Broth has been used as a healing concoction in traditional cultures for centuries. Bone broth is made from nothing more than water, animal bones, vegetables, and seasoning. Often the bones are roasted first, before simmering for very long periods of time, usually more than 24 hours – so that not only gelatin (which is a hydrolyzed form of collagen), but also many healthful minerals, are released into the broth.
Bone broth is very rich in the amino acids glycine and proline. Glycine supports detoxification, while proline supports skin health, especially in combination with vitamin C. Gelatin also supports skin health and tone.
Bone broth also contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, which combine to support healthy cartilage. Additionally, bone broth contains hyaluronic acid (also found in beans and root vegetables) which is given on its own as a supplement to osteoarthritis patients and is also injected into knee joints to reduce pain, along with increasing knee function and mobility.
All these many powerful nutrients in bone broth greatly contribute to joint health, which in turn may help to prevent inflammation-induced breakdown processes and improve overall mobility.
#2 Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a fast-growing technology that is being used to treat many conditions that require stimulation of innate healing processes, relief from pain and inflammation, and restoration of normal function. Laboratory studies have shown an increase in production of pro-collagen and collagen along with other skin healing factors after skin exposure to low-energy laser irradiation.
#3 Vitamin C
Vitamin C is essential for collagen production in the body, by direct activation of collagen production, by serving as a co-factor for two enzymes that are responsible for stabilizing collagen molecules, and by other mechanisms. Clinical studies have shown that applying vitamin C directly on the skin increases collagen production. Consuming vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants also helps maintain collagen levels in the body.
#4 Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has been shown to nearly double hyaluronic acid and collagen production when consumed by study participants. In laboratory experiments, naturally occurring compounds present in Aloe vera known as sterols have been shown to promote the production of type I and type III collagen.
#5 Collagen Supplements
Collagen supplements are produced from the connective tissue of animals and are commonly used to replenish collagen levels. In its natural state, collagen is made up of large molecules, which are “hydrolyzed,” or broken down into smaller molecules called peptides for better absorption.
Studies have shown that collagen peptides are indeed well absorbed and can trigger the body’s own collagen production. For instance, supplements of hydrolyzed types I and III collagen have been shown to increase collagen levels in the skin and also support tendons and ligaments, helping with exercise recovery.
A 2008 study by Clark and colleagues examined the effects of collagen hydrolysate on activity-related joint pain in 147 athletes, of whom 73 received the collagen supplement while 74 received control treatment for 24 weeks. The results of this study clearly showed that athletes consuming collagen hydrolysate had less joint pain – while at rest, while standing, walking, or lifting – all of which can have a negative impact on athletic performance if left untreated.xi
In osteoarthritis, injury or wear and tear break down the cartilage, eventually causing the bones to rub together.
On the other hand, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which inflammation causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Collagen supplements have been shown to help support joint health, which is highly beneficial for arthritis sufferers.
Don’t take a collagen supplement unless
it has all 5 of these ingredients.
First and foremost, you’ll want to make sure that the collagen supplement you choose has all 5 of the most important collagens your body needs.
The FIVE Major
Types Of Collagen
Recent research has discovered ther eare at least
28 different types of collagen. xii
5 of those types are the ones that play some pretty big roles in your body.
This is the most abundant type of collagen in your body. Around 90% of the collagen you do have is type 1, and it’s the stuff that helps maintain healthy teeth, bones, hair, tendons, and ligaments.
This is the type found in cartilage. This rubbery tissue is what cushions your joints, and it’s why type 2 collagen is what promotes healthier, pain-free joints.
Next to type 1, this is the second most abundant type of collagen in your body. It’s what helps keep your skin and the lining of your organs and arteries smooth and pliable.
This type is found on the surface of all your cells and is the type that makes up hair strands and can promote healthier, fuller hair. And interestingly enough, it’s the type of collagen found in the placenta.
This is the type of collagen that helps with bone formation and cartilage as well, helping prevent things like arthritis and osteoporosis.
So these are the five types that you definitely WANT if you’re looking to get the major benefits collagen can deliver.
However, most supplements do NOT include all five types. Usually, they give you just one or two types. This means your body can only use that type of collagen for the specific role that type plays. So you don’t get the entire spectrum of age-defying benefits all five of the major types can provide.
But that's just the beginning.
Without vitamin C, supplementing with collagen is practically useless
Vitamin C is essential for collagen production in the body. It’s the “Yin” to collagen’s “Yang.”
Because without it, your body CAN’T produce collagen. xiii
Think of it like this:
You’ve seen an old rusty car sitting in a junkyard that looks brittle and has holes from the rust, right?
That car looks like that because it’s oxidized.
And just like the car sitting there becomes less and less functional the more oxidized it gets (resulting in rust), it’s the same with your connective tissue, your skin, and your collagen.
Vitamin C is the ANTI-oxidant that helps protect and prevent any of this from happening.
So that’s why collagen and vitamin C are joined at the hip for life!
Most collagen supplements out there DO NOT add vitamin C to their formulas
This means you don’t get the rejuvenating benefits of vitamin C.
To be perfectly frank with you:
This BOGGLES my mind!
Why wouldn’t you include the ONE thing your body needs to actually USE the collagen in the first place?
And while there might be a small handful of collagen supplements out there that have vitamin C...
... here’s what they don’t tell you:
Most of the vitamin C used in those supplements (and in practically EVERY vitamin C supplement out there) is a kind of synthetically created “Frankenstein” version of vitamin C.
It’s called “ascorbic acid” and it’s typically derived from a GMO corn extract!
This is true for somewhere around 90% of the vitamin C supplements out there. xiv
There’s just NO WAY I’d want to put that stuff in my body. And you shouldn’t have to either.
So what kind of vitamin C is “good” to supplement with, in addition to collagen?
In my opinion, it would be two of the best, all-natural sources of vitamin C on earth ...
Camu camu and acerola cherry!
These two little guys pack a BIG punch – they have the highest concentration of vitamin C you’ll find in nature. Period.
This remarkable plant grows deep in the swampy areas of the Amazon rain forest. The indigenous people use the fruit and leaves as medicines and is known to have anti-viral properties.
And get this – it’s also chock full of vitamin C.
In fact ...
To put that into perspective, one teaspoon of camu camu in powder form delivers 1,180% of your recommended daily vitamin C intake.
That’s the power of using a whole food source of vitamin C – instead of resorting to some lab-created GMO corn extract calling itself a vitamin.
Also known as Barbados cherry, this cherry is typically found in the more tropical climates of places like Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Central America.
Like camu camu, acerola cherry contains a TON of vitamin C. In this case, one tablespoon of it in powder form delivers 525% of your recommended daily intake.
But here’s what makes it really special...
It contains OVER 150 phytonutrients, including flavonoids and polyphenols. These are phytonutrients your body NEEDS in order to effectively use vitamin C. Which means it takes a lot LESS vitamin C to get the job done, since it gives you a COMPLETE package.
This is the “natural” kind of vitamin C you WANT to put in your body.
But that's not all you need to actually get all of collagen's benefits...
While vitamin C is the most important nutrient you need to use collagen in your body, there is another nutrient you need:
This is what also keeps all our connective tissue system pliable. If we don’t have enough silica, things start to harden, which is why if you’re deficient it CAN contribute to heart disease, arthritis, back injuries, and more not so fun stuff.
As far as collagen is concerned, it’s actually a “building block” of collagen, so it helps your body more effectively use the collagen you’re taking.
Typically you can find silica in leafy greens, but one of the best sources is organic horsetail.
No – not THAT kind of horse tail. The horsetail I’m talking about is an ancient medicinal herb that’s been around since even before the dinosaurs.
The Greeks and Romans used horsetail for healing wounds and ailments like ulcers and even to fight infections.
But used in conjunction with collagen it really helps make things super effective.
Of course, as you might guess, most collagen supplements on the market do NOT include any kind of silica.
And finally ...
That’s because the collagen-repairing enzymes in your body are all zinc-based.
Without enough zinc, it doesn’t matter how much collagen you take in, your body won’t be able to do much with it.
Zinc also helps slow the breakdown of collagen in your body. This is important because starting at about age 21, your collagen levels start to breakdown and drop off. Your body breaks it down faster than it can replace it.xv
Then at 25 it’s a slippery slope.
You lose about 1% of your collagen every year under “normal” circumstances. It’s more than that if you get too much sun exposure, feel stressed out all the time, are a smoker, or don’t stay properly hydrated.xvi
Every year that passes means your body is going even deeper into a MASSIVE collagen deficit!
We’ve ALL seen the effects of this firsthand.
One day you look in the mirror and notice wrinkles on your forehead that appeared seemingly out of nowhere.
You notice tiny wrinkles around your eyes, and maybe a few larger ones on your neck.
You look at the skin on the back of your hands and fingers and see it isn’t as smooth as it used to be.
And that’s just the beginning!
You don’t have as much “pep” as you used to … the pounds seem to come on WAY too easily … and then all of a sudden little aches, pains, and “popping” sounds when you bend down or pick things up seem almost unexplainable.
It’s all a sign that WAY too much collagen has been M.I.A. (missing in action!) in your body.
That’s why you’ve got to take matters into your own hands, and make sure your body gets all the collagen it needs.
But as I’ve explained here, you can’t just take a regular old collagen supplement.
Because they don’t include all the OTHER nutrients your body needs in order to actually USE that collagen where it’s needed.
That’s why if you REALLY want to experience what it’s like to look younger when you wake up in the morning and see yourself in the mirror ...
... to wake up and no longer feel those nagging aches and pains … and to wake up feeling refreshed and energized to tackle your day (instead of dragging yourself out of bed) ...
... then you’ve got to have collagen PLUS all the other nutrients I’ve mentioned in this report.
In fact, the more research I did on this, the more concerned I got that practically NOBODY out there is giving people collagen with all these supporting nutrients that are absolutely NEEDED to absorb the collagen and actually use it!
So I decided to take matters into my own hands.

Q. Which types of collagens are in your product?
A. In order to deliver everything your body needs, we don’t just use one type of collagen; our Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens contains type 1, 2, 3, 5, and 10.

Our beef is from grass-fed pasture-raised bovine from Argentina.
Our fish is Clean Marine wild-harvested Alaskan pollock from the North Pacific Ocean.
Our chicken is from non-GMO chicken bone broth.
Q. What kind of vitamin C do you use?
A. The quality of vitamins matters. Using low-quality synthetic vitamins might make the “supplement facts” look good because you can put enormous amounts of a vitamin into a supplement for cheap, but the body can’t process and use synthetic vitamins nearly as well as a whole food supplement.
Our vitamin C is from the amazing source of acerola chery and camu camu.

A. Again, the source really matters and we get our silica from organic horsetail.
Q. What does it taste like?
A. Our Clean Sourced Collagens is tasteless, odorless, and flavorless. Which means you can simply mix it into a plain glass of water, your favorite juice or smoothie, and even any of your favorite hot beverages like coffee and tea.
Q. Where is it manufactured?
A. We manufacture all of our supplements right here in the U.S.A.

After the age of 20, a person produces about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with age. There is also diminished functioning of the sweat and oil glands, less elastin production, and less GAG formation.
When we are young, skin is made up of 80 per cent collagen. After the age of 25, we lose it at the rate of about one per cent a year. The result is the twin curses of wrinkles and saggy skin./p>
