My brand of Pure Hydrolysed Collagen is the most satiating protein powder I’ve found, and has helped a lot of people lose weight if the testimonials are anything to go by, and in the last month I’ve dropped 2,5kg, although I am not overweight by stepping up my intake. (To get my pure brand of collagen, go to sallyanncreed.co.za and click ‘shop’). Protein is a powerful aid in weight loss, but when taken in this form – as collagen protein peptides – it has been found in studies to be more satiating than any other type of protein powder. So here are a few weight loss benefits and why collagen may help you shed a few kilos:
Provides FULLNESS over 40% more than other protein powders like pea, whey, soy or casein and individuals consumed 20% less food at their next meal after collagen consumption.
Suppresses APPETITE – a study of obese and diabetic patients found intake of hydrolysed collagen stimulates the release of satiating hormones into the bloodstream. Directly after consuming collagen their appetite reduced, resulting in decreased overall food intake. Diabetic patients were able to lose weight by eating less due to collagen’s ability to reduce appetite.
Retains MUSCLE MASS – very important when losing weight is not to lose precious muscle, but to burn fat – and this is where collagen comes into its own. We lose muscle mass as we age, and the older you get the more dietary protein you need to retain valuable lean muscle. It can be difficult for older people to eat enough protein to maintain healthy muscle mass but a study of women of 71 years of age showed those who supplemented with pure hydrolysed collagen peptides daily had far better preservation of lean body mass and nitrogen balance than those given whey supplements. Greater muscle mass helps with weight loss because the body burns fat and calories much faster and more effectively – at any age.
Scientific STUDIES showed a positive impact on weight loss in those taking pure hydrolysed collagen. Without adequate amounts of protein you will not support lean muscle mass and lose weight in a healthy manner. Protein is the most satiating of all the macronutrients. According to research, protein-rich diets reduce overall energy consumption making you feel full longer. A higher protein diet will help you to lose more weight and maintain that weight loss much longer than going on a low protein diet.
Smooths out CELLULITE – so you look better too. By strengthening the dermis layer of the skin, collagen plays an important role in reducing and eliminating cellulite. Cellulite becomes more visible as the skin stretches, thins and sags. Supplementing daily with my brand of Pure Hydrolysed Collagen is important for smoothing out fat cells just under the skin.
I wouldn’t have believed collagen could do this quite frankly, nor all the other dozens of health benefits associated with it, until I decided to use it myself – and so I became a convert and use it myself daily. I even travel with it.
