Benefits of Taking Collagen Supplements for TMJ
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a hinge connecting your jaw to the temporal bones at the sides and base of your skull. Your temporomandibular joint allows you to move your jaw up and down and from side to side, so you can chew, yawn, and talk.
Difficulty chewing or clicking jaw when opening your mouth
The temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex joints in the body because it combines hinge and sliding motions. TMJ disorders are conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles controlling jaw position and movement. The symptoms of TMJ disorders may include the following:
  • Pain and tenderness in your jaw
  • Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
  • Ear pain and ringing
  • Eye and jaw pain
  • Clicking jaw when you open your mouth


Most of the current treatments available for TMJ disorders aim to relieve pain but don’t address the underlying cause of the problem. TMJ disorders are difficult to diagnose and manage because they are poorly understood. There are many different types of TMJ disorders, and they can be caused by injuries, aging, and behavioral factors, such as teeth clenching and gum chewing.

Wear and tear of the temporomandibular joint due to aging can lead to arthritis. Osteoarthritis of the temporomandibular joint is a degenerative disease of the jaw joint that may present symptoms like toothache, earache, headache, jaw pain, and difficulty opening the jaw. TMJ osteoarthritis   may cause changes in the extracellular collagen network, making the joint less susceptible to withstanding mechanical loading and hence more prone to osteoarthritic lesions.

Collagen’s Role in Temporomandibular Joint Health

The resilience and functions of your temporomandibular joint are supported by collagen architecture. Unlike other joints in the body, the TMJ is composed of fibrocartilage, which contains both Type I and Type II collagen.

TMJ disorders are characterized by the excess degradation of collagen, the main building block of cartilage. Cartilage in the TMJ is often degraded due to jaw misalignment. Taking a collagen supplement nourishes cartilage and supports cartilage regeneration.

How Collagen Helps Treat TMJ Disorders

Interestingly, a growing number of   RenewAlliance customers have reported   that they have experienced rapid and dramatic relief from TMJ pain by consuming the LAC Taut Premium   collagen drink. Multiple studies have shown a link between collagen depletion in the jaw area and TMJ, which could explain why collagen supplementation is beneficial to TMJ disorders.

In   one study, participants with fibromyalgia and temporomandibular joint pain saw significant improvement in TMJ symptoms when they took hydrolyzed collagen supplements.   Another randomized trial of 200 patients   found that hydrolyzed collagen significantly reduced joint pain when compared to a placebo.

You’ve probably heard of good fats and bad fats, but what about good sugars and bad sugars? Sugar is a carbohydrate that is naturally found in a variety of foods. An example of good sugar is the naturally occurring sugar found in whole foods like fruits and vegetables. This type of sugar is bundled with water, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Bad sugar consists of regular table sugar or the refined stuff you find in sodas, candy, ketchup, or baked goods. The average American consumes about 22 teaspoons of sugar each day . Many of us consume sugar without even realizing it because ready-made foods, even savory ones like pasta sauce and bread, often contain sugar.

Bye-bye Botox. The new beauty secret on everyone’s lips right now is collagen. There’s always been pressure to be ageless in Hollywood, but today’s celebrities are nixing the usual topical remedies and invasive treatments in favor of collagen of the consumable variety. Collagen drinks have been popular in Japan for years, but they have started generating more buzz among women in the rest of the world, including the rich and famous.

What does it take to achieve glamorous looks and a youthful complexion worthy of the red carpet? Celebrities often have access to a team of hair and makeup pros who can glam them up at a moment’s notice, but they also cling to their fair share of anti-aging beauty secrets – collagen drinks being one of them.

The likes of Drew Barrymore, Lady Gaga, and the Kardashian sisters swear by these nutrient-rich beauty drinks. Below are some of the reasons why more and more celebrities are incorporating collagen drinks into their routine.

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!
