You may have heard collagen can help to keep skin looking young and firm. But did you know that you can drink it too?

Time can be tough on the body. for example, Did you know that around age 30 our bodies stop producing collagen — and then we start losing one to two percent of our supply each year thereafter?

Collagen is the body’s main structural protein. It can be found in our skin, muscles, tendons, bones, blood vessels and digestive systems. As we lose collagen, it becomes particularly evident in our epidermis which begins to form those dreaded wrinkles as it loses elasticity.

Conversely, increasing collagen levels can help boost metabolism, strengthen teeth and nails, repair joints, help detox, cleanse the liver, and even assist in the reduction of stretch marks. People have long sought to replace lost collagen with a variety of creams, lotions and fillers. Then they discovered that it’s also drinkable.

Consumed by beauty seekers in Asian markets for years, drinkable collagen has just started to take off in the North America. Taut Premium Collagen, North America’s first and strongest drinkable collagen brand, was formulated in Japan. Each 1.7 ounce bottle of Taut contains over 13,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen. Though traditional collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed in this manner, this collagen is broken down until its molecules are small enough to be absorbed through digestion.

Taut collagen tastes like orange juice and is preservative free, chemical free, allergen free, gluten free, and sweetened with Stevia. (It’s currently the only consumable collagen that isn’t sweetened with sugar.) It’s sourced from fish — deep water red snapper, to be exact — and produced in Japan under certified environmentally-friendly conditions.

Taut also contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, skin-plumping ceramide, the powerful antioxidant CoQ10, chondroitin sulfate — which is known to help the body repair itself, and Vitamins C, E and B6. It’s best consumed on an empty stomach just before bedtime to maximize effectiveness and may also be combined with topical treatments like masks for more dramatic results. renewalliance.com
