1. Repair, strengthen, and rejuvenate skin with collagen
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is a major structural protein, making up about 75% of our skin. Skin with healthy collagen levels looks smooth, plump, and youthful. After the age of 25, however, collagen production slows and you start to lose approximately 1.5% of your collagen each year. The breakdown of collagen causes the skin to get thinner and leads to the formation of wrinkles.
Collagen gives the skin its strength and smooth appearance, so it’s crucial to protect and promote collagen growth. The active collagen fragments in collagen drinks are absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body and to the skin. Skin cells called fibroblasts produce collagen.
Collagen drinks containing hydrolyzed collagen promote collagen synthesis by stimulating these fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Clinical studies shows ingesting 10,000mg a day for a period of 8 weeks help to increase skin thickness and collagen density, reduce wrinkles. See Clinical studies.
2. Hydrolyzed collagen can be absorbed into the bloodstream, and stay in the dermis of our skin
In their natural state, collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the skin’s surface, so the effectiveness of many topical collagen products is limited. Collagen molecules are also too large for your body to absorb when ingested. The process of hydrolysis breaks collagen down into fragments that are small enough for your digestive enzymes to break down completely. Hydrolyzed collagen consists of small peptides with low molecular weight that are easily digested, absorbed, and distributed throughout the body.
While traditional collagen serums only penetrate the top layer of the skin, hydrolyzed collagen is more easily absorbed by the body and can thus boost collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. A 1999 study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Arthritis & Rheumatology showed that orally administered hydrolyzed collagen was digested and more than 90% of it was absorbed within 6 hours, with measurable accumulation in the skin and cartilage.
3. Collagen drinks are better than powder or pills
Collagen supplements come in all forms, including tablets, capsules, chewables, softgels, powders, and even marshmallows. The problem with collagen pills and powders is that they could pass through your digestive system without being broken down. Pills are also hard for some people to swallow. Moreover, they typically contain fillers, binders, stabilizers, and chelating agents, making them less potent than liquid supplements.
The secret to success with collagen supplementation is taking collagen in liquid form. Collagen drinks are absorbed into your bloodstream faster than other supplements because the collagen is already dissolved in the liquid. Collagen drinks are also a lot more convenient than pills and powders. They come ready-made in small bottles that you can easily carry in your purse, so you can drink them on the go. No messes or mixing necessary. Additionally, collagen drinks are a lot more potent than other collagen supplements, so you can get a higher dose of collagen.
4. The higher the potency, the better
While there is no recommended daily allowance for collagen, high-end supplements typically contain more than 5,000mg of collagen. For maximum results, drinking a collagen supplement with at least 7,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen is recommended. Anything less than that simply isn’t potent enough. LAC Taut® Premium Collagen drink contains 13,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen per 1.7oz bottle, which is two to six times the concentration of other collagen drink brands.
5. There’s more to collagen drink benefits than meets the eye
In the first few weeks of taking a liquid collagen supplement, you might not notice any physical differences in your skin, but skin readings would suggest otherwise. Skin graphs showing the facial images of a 60 year old woman who drank one bottle of LAC Taut® Premium Collagen every night for the first 8 nights and then every other night after that showed a noticeable increase in skin thickness and hydration levels after just four weeks. See results.
Drinking high-potency marine hydrolyzed collagen is also shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Several controlled clinical studies have been performed that prove the efficacy and benefits of collagen peptides in the reduction of wrinkles. A study conducted by Rousselot SAS France showed a 30% decrease in the formation of deep wrinkles after supplementation with 10g of hydrolyzed collagen. In another study published in the journal Clinical Interventions in Aging, daily supplementation with 1g of hydrolyzed collagen for 12 weeks led to a significant reduction in skin dryness and wrinkles. The authors of the study suggested that dietary supplementation with hydrolyzed collagen can physiologically counteract natural and photo-aging processes. Hydrolyzed collagen is an important weapon in the fight against wrinkles and aging skin.
So the question is "Can we drink our wrinkles away?"
Yes we can!

I grew up just outside of San Francisco. We lived in a nice cul-de-sac of newly constructed homes. I remember being in 3rd grade moving away from our smaller, older home in the Sunset district known for its side-by-side houses and fog.
To me, the other families around us seemed to be normal and happy—young families creating lives together.
Two girls who went to the same elementary school as my brothers and I lived a few houses away with their parents. From the outside, their lives seemed perfectly happy. They went to school just like us. Their parents would wave to us as we drove by and would stop by if we were outside and talk with my parents.
Then it all changed. We would hear arguing once in a while. Then the arguing became more frequent and more intense. Eventually, we stopped seeing the father doing normal household chores like taking out the garbage or washing the cars. Word spread that the parents had separated and gotten divorced.
Overnight, their mother looked like she had aged 10 years. What was once jet black hair had gone gray. What was once a youthful glow in her skin became a shade of drab.
How did she age so quickly? How was this possible? This was one of my first memories seeing stress drain the youth out of someone’s appearance.
Now that we got that out of the way, what causes this rapid aging?
Stress isn’t always a bad thing. A small amount of stress can motivate you to perform at your best and work well under pressure. Chronic stress, however, can take a toll on your appearance, including your hair, skin, and nails. Combined with the UV rays from the sun and pollution, stress creates the perfect recipe for aging skin.
