Collagen is everywhere these days and, while most of the formulations might help your hair and skin, the vast majority don't address the needs of athletes looking to repair and strengthen tissues made up of collagen.
As the most abundant protein in the human body, collagen is the material that makes up your skin, hair, nails, organs, vascular tissue, and ligaments.
Supplementing with collagen can have numerous benefits, such as a youthful appearance (plump skin and shiny hair), as well as recovery of soft tissue and reduction in pain and inflammation.
But, what many people don't realize, is that most collagen on the market is really just a protein source because it's not in a format (or molecular size) that can be used to repair tissues.
To offset poor absorption, many supplement companies will give very high collagen doses, crossing their fingers that SOME of the right sized collagen will be included and MIGHT help tissue repair.
They've gone deep on every major study related to collagen repair and athletes.
They've perfected their formula down to the top three premium types of collagen. Not surprising, these premium branded ingredients are the most researched, most effective, and most expensive forms of collagen in the world. Most importantly they are all the right size molecule to actually get absorbed into your tissues to accelerate tissue repair. Together, they have over 24 studies done on them proving their effectiveness.
FORTIGEL® Backed by more than fifteen studies, it contains bioactive collagen peptides (BCPs), which are high concentrations of specific peptides that make up your connective tissue. According to published research, orally administered FORTIGEL® is absorbed intestinally and accumulates in the cartilage. The ingestion of FORTIGEL® stimulates a statistically significant increase of cartilage tissue metabolism.
In fact, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial performed in cooperation with Harvard Medical School and Tufts Medical Center demonstrated that FORTIGEL® has the potential to improve joint regeneration.
TendoActive® is a combination of type I collagen and mucopolysaccharides. Tendoactive® is a specific formulation for tendons and has 5 scientific studies that support its efficacy and safety. Tendoactive contains type I hydrolyzed collagen, mucopolysaccharides, vitamin C, and manganese, which contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments.
Mobilee® is a natural extract rich in hyaluronic acid, polysaccharides, and collagen. Hyaluronic acid is the lubrication for your joints. Mobilee® was shown to result in a 10x increase of hyaluronic acid, reductions of inflammation as well as pain.
If there was ever a case where SwissRX's policy of "spare-no-expense" to sourcing ingredients is highlighted, this is it. Each Collagen is a branded pharmaceutical-grade collagen (you can see it right in the Trademarked names). Each form is incredibly expensive as a raw ingredient, but also incredibly effective. With SwissRX Collagen you can stop hoping your collagen is getting absorbed properly... know it is.
If you're dealing with a soft tissue injury, we highly recommend you combine SwissRX Collagen with SwissRX Soft Tissue Complex. Here's how this powerful combination works:
Most days I use 1 scoop, once per day in 8 oz of water. It's up to you when to take it. My personal preference is to always take it at night, right before bed. along with SwissRX Soft Tissue Complex. If you're struggling with an injury, I've used 1 Scoop in the AM and PM for the first 2 weeks, then move to a single evening dosage.
There is some data to suggest that taking collagen 45 minutes prior to exercise can further increase resynthesis. While I agree with this research, I find it difficult to always time this properly.
You might have heard that it's important to take Vitamin C with your Collagen. This is very true! Fortunately, SwissRX Collagen has just the right amount of Vitamin C included in their formula, so additional Vitamin C is always good, but not required.
We set out to find a supplement company we could trust for the world's top endurance athletes: a company that has the same obsession with quality and performance as our athletes do. Our quest led us to SwissRX. SwissRX takes a "spare-no-expense" approach to procuring the highest quality Pharmaceutical Grade Ingredients. Only 3% of supplement companies go through the rigorous testing required for pharmaceutical grade labeling, SwissRX happens to be one of them. But they don't stop there; whenever possible, they use the exact ingredients used in medical studies, the same ones that many other companies point to in research, but don't use due to their price. We love SwissRX because our athletes can rest assured knowing that they are getting the identical ingredients that were proven to be effective in previous studies.
Simply stated, SwissRX products work better because they contain better ingredients.
We know SwissRX is expensive, but you get what you pay for - especially when it comes to supplements. Other brands may be cheaper, but so are the quality of their ingredients. If you're anything like me, you'd rather pay a premium and KNOW you're getting the highest quality and most effective product possible.
We are 100% confident that SwissRX is the best supplement in the world, which is why we guarantee first time orders up to $100. If, for any reason at all, you're not THRILLED with your results after using this product for a minimum of three weeks, contact us within 60 days of your purchase and we will issue a no-hassle MONEY BACK refund in the form of Feed Credit for the purchase price of your product, up to a maximum value of $100.
