Unveiling the Power of Ancient and Brave Collagen

Unveiling the Power of Ancient and Brave Collagen

The Fountain of Youth Within

In the relentless pursuit of youth and vitality, we have seen many anti-aging fads come and go. As nutritional therapists and natural beauty experts, the team at Amaranth follow these trends carefully, and only when we are convinced that there is sufficient, credible evidence will we introduce products into our range (like our latest collection Ancient and Brave). When we do introduce products, we will only do so if those products are of the highest quality, ethical, and the dosage and absorption ability that has been used in research.

Collagen products started to appear on the market five or so years ago, and at first, we were not convinced. Where is the evidence that collagen will be absorbed? How is it any different from the amino acids in protein? What co-factors are needed? At what dosage and in which format? As collagen products appeared all over the internet, we stepped back until we had enough information to be sure of what we were offering. As the collagen trend has not gone away, we are pleased to say that more and more information is now available. The research we have found has been positive, and we are now happy that collagen, when taken from an ethical source in the form of hydrolysed peptides with a low molecular weight, taken at a dosage of 10 to 20mg a day, will encourage your body to synthesise new collagen.

Collagen, the most abundant protein in your body, acts as the building block for various tissues, and its decline with age can significantly impact our appearance and well-being. Here at Amaranth, we're passionate about offering solutions that promote health from the inside out. 

That's why we're thrilled to introduce you to Ancient and Brave, a leading brand of high-quality collagen supplements designed to replenish your body's natural collagen stores and unlock a renewed sense of vitality.

Understanding Collagen: The Scaffold of Our Body

Imagine your body as a magnificent building. Collagen is the essential framework, providing structure, strength, and elasticity to everything from your skin and hair to your bones, joints, and even your gut lining. It's a complex protein composed of various types, each playing a specific role:

- Type I Collagen: This prevalent type is found abundantly in your skin, tendons, and bones. It contributes to skin elasticity and firmness, keeping your complexion plump and youthful.

- Type II Collagen: This type is concentrated in your cartilage, the cushioning tissue that protects your joints and facilitates smooth movement.

- Type III Collagen: Found alongside Type I collagen in your skin, Type III provides additional support and helps maintain a youthful appearance.

- Types IV, V, and X: These less abundant types play vital roles in your basement membrane (a layer beneath the skin's surface), blood vessels, and bone mineralization, respectively.

Unfortunately, collagen production naturally declines as we age. This decline starts subtly in our twenties and accelerates around menopause or andropause. The visible signs are most evident on our skin, with wrinkles, sagging, and loss of elasticity becoming more pronounced. However, the impact goes beyond aesthetics. Reduced collagen can also lead to joint pain, stiffness, and even gut health issues.

The Diverse Benefits of Ancient and Brave Collagen: A Multifaceted Approach

At Amaranth, we recognise that everyone has unique goals and concerns. That's why we offer a variety of Ancient and Brave collagen products to cater to your specific needs. Here's a closer look at some of our most popular options:

- Ancient and Brave Marine Collagen: Sourced from sustainably-caught wild fish, this collagen powder is rich in Type I collagen, ideal for those seeking to improve skin health. By stimulating collagen production, it can help reduce wrinkles, promote elasticity, and leave your skin looking plump, dewy, and youthful.


- Ancient and Brave Bovine Collagen: Made from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows, this collagen powder provides a blend of Types I, II, and III collagen. This comprehensive approach offers benefits for both skin and joint health. Type I and III support skin health, while Type II helps maintain healthy cartilage and promote joint mobility.


Beyond these flagship products, Ancient and Brave offers a range of collagen-infused options tailored to specific needs:
- For Skin, Hair, and Nails: Products like Cacao and Collagen combine collagen peptides with prebiotic fiber and the adaptogen ashwagandha to support healthy skin, hair, and nails while promoting stress resilience.


- For Active Lifestyles: New Noble Collagen utilises a unique clinically proven form of Type II collagen combined with key nutrients and the botanical Boswellia. This one-a-day capsule is designed to support joint health, mobility, and overall well-being for active individuals. 


The Science Behind Ancient and Brave Collagen: Evidence-Based Results

The benefits of collagen supplementation are not merely anecdotal. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of collagen peptides in promoting various health aspects:

- Skin Health: Studies have shown that collagen supplementation can improve skin hydration and elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and promote overall skin health.

- Joint Health: Collagen peptides have been shown to reduce joint pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis, improving joint mobility and function.

- Gut Health: Collagen plays a role in maintaining the integrity of the gut lining, which is crucial for good digestion and immune function. Studies suggest that collagen supplementation might improve gut health and reduce symptoms of digestive disorders.

Beyond Collagen: A Holistic Approach to Wellness

While Ancient and Brave collagen offers a powerful way to replenish your body's collagen stores and experience the benefits from the inside out, a holistic approach to wellness is crucial. Here are some additional tips to complement your collagen journey:

- Maintain a Balanced Diet: Nourish your body with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources. These foods provide essential nutrients that support collagen production and overall health.

- Stay Hydrated: Water is vital for maintaining skin health and facilitating nutrient absorption. Aim to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated and functioning optimally.

- Prioritise Sleep: Getting adequate sleep allows your body to repair and regenerate, including collagen production. Aim for 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night.

- Manage Stress: Chronic stress can break down collagen and accelerate its decline. Practice stress-reduction techniques like yoga, meditation, or deep breathing to promote relaxation and well-being.

- Consider Complementary Supplements: Certain supplements, like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, can work synergistically with collagen to enhance its benefits. Consult with a healthcare professional to determine if these supplements are right for you.
