As I hit my forties a few years ago, I started to notice changes in my skin, hair, and joints.
I always heard about how collagen plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin, hair, and joints, but never really put much credence to it. Did you know that as we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, dry skin, brittle nails, and joint pain?
That’s where liquid collagen supplements come in. Not only are they a convenient way to boost your collagen levels, but they also come with a host of benefits that can help you feel and look your best.
But there are so many options out there…. how do you know which ones are good for you and which ones you should avoid?
Let’s take a quick comparison of a handful of some of the top brands.
While many on this chart use hydrolyzed collagen – which means the collagen has been partially broken down and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream or skin – you will notice that only a few are ready to drink and only TWO use marine collagen. Futhermore, Urban Retreat and Bella Grace are the only two brands that check off ALL of the boxes. But when comparing the prices – URBAN RETREAT’S SKIN TONIC wins by a huge margin!!! This is because UR utilizes a lab direct system – making our prices significantly less than other professional grade products.
And when you sign up as a VIP customer – you can get 10% off your order every month!
Marine collagen is better for the human body than bovine collagen for various reasons, but chief among these is its unique structure. Marine collagen tends to contain more amino acids and glycine than bovine varieties, which are essential for skin health. Plus, it is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body which means it has superior bioavailability over bovine or porcine types.
I personally love how easy the Urban Retreat Skin Tonic is to incorporate into my daily routine. Just a quick 10mL shot of the peachy collagen. No need to worry about swallowing a handful of pills or choking down a chalky powder. 🤣 Plus, the liquid form of collagen is more easily absorbed by the body than other forms, so you’ll start to see and feel the benefits faster.
But what exactly are the benefits of using a liquid collagen supplement in your 40s? Let’s take a look:
- Reduced joint pain and stiffness: Liquid collagen supplements can help rebuild and strengthen the cartilage in our joints, reducing pain and stiffness.
- Healthier skin and hair: By boosting your collagen levels with a liquid supplement, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin elasticity, and promote hair growth.
- Improved gut health: Collagen can help improve gut health by strengthening the lining of the gut and reducing inflammation. This can lead to better digestion, fewer stomach problems, and improved overall health.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Jackie, won’t taking a liquid marine collagen supplement make me feel like a fish out of water?” Ha🤣 ! While the thought of drinking marine collagen may seem unappetizing, rest assured that UR’s Skin Tonic is made from the highest quality marine sources, with a peachy 🍑 taste that won’t make you feel like you’re drinking ocean water. It boosts collagen, ceramide and hyaluronic levels, ensuring skin stays firm, moisturised and youthful. Futhermore, our Skin Tonic is free from artificial sweeteners and preservatives.
So go ahead and give it a try, your body (and taste buds) will thank you!
