What is it?
Collagen is a vital protein that provides structure, support and strength to a slew of areas in your body, including your skin, muscles, bones and connective tissues. Collagen production decreases as you get older, which has pushed some people to turn to collagen supplements to try to infuse more of the important protein back into their bodies. Some studies have found that collagen supplements improve skin elasticity and joint health, making it a common choice. Interested in trying it? Just for today, the massively popular 3.9-ounce unflavored Sports Research Collagen Peptides powder is just $10 — $5 off — at Amazon. There are other flavors and sizes of Sports Research Collagen Peptides on sale, too, but this is the deal you definitely don't want to miss.
Why is it a good deal?
Collagen supplements tend to be pricey, especially quality ones with a good reputation like the Sports Research Collagen Peptides powder. You'll save $5 — over 30% — off this container. While any savings is good, that can really add up with repeat use.
Why do I need this?
Again, studies have linked collagen supplements to good joint health and skin elasticity, although it's important to point out that research into all of this is ongoing.
Sports Research Collagen Peptides powder offers 11 grams of low molecular weight type 3 and 1 hydrolyzed collagen peptides with 18 amino acids, including glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. Worth noting: Each serving contains 10 grams of protein, too. Just use one scoop in liquid daily — it can be a smoothie, coffee, soup, whatever.
Since supplements aren't tightly regulated by the FDA, it's nice to know that Sports Research has its collagen powder third-party tested for quality. The powder is also non-GMO and free of artificial flavors, sweeteners and hidden fillers.
The powder is unflavored, so you can add it to just about anything without altering the taste.
What reviewers say:
Many reviewers swear Sports Research's collagen powder helped them with everything from skin suppleness to joint pain. One fan who identified themselves as an avid hiker, runner and dancer listed all the perks of taking the powder: "Elbow pain and tightness completely disappeared within two weeks. I literally couldn't sleep with my arm bent, and now it's fine. Knee pain was also gone within two weeks. When I'm not paddling I run steep trails here in Hawaii and the downhills were starting to be really painful. No more. My shoulder has significantly improved over the four weeks - I still haven't regained full mobility, and it's sore when I perform certain movements, but I no longer cry out in pain every time I try to stretch it out." The powder led to "simply amazing results for joint pain and stiffness," they said.
They also added this aside: "I have a PhD and am skeptical of EVERYTHING, especially supplements. But there is no denying that I'm seeing dramatic improvements while still paddling and being active, and that was after three months of doing only physical therapy with minimal improvement."
A fellow happy customer called the powder "amazing," adding, "my skin looks great, no more dullness and my nails are stronger than ever."
