There is a common misconception that marine collagen peptides are only for women. This could not be further from the truth. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen benefit both men and women. withinUs TruMarine Collagen is often associated with skin health, hair and nails but 5 grams of withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen daily has many other clinically proven benefits.
MYTH: COLLAGEN IS ONLY FOR WOMEN
OSTEOARTHRITIS KNOWS NO GENDER
Joint pain knows no gender. Osteoarthritis affects men and women (almost) equally, and these aches and pains start off as minor discomforts but can grow to be debilitating as the body ages and continues to lose collagen. Reducing joint pain, increasing mobility, and comfort becomes a top priority.
Incorporating a high quality, premium, hydrolyzed marine collagen helps promote joint health by strengthening cartilage and joint structure and reducing joint pain (1). Unlike other sources of marine collagen (ie: fish skin), and animal skin and bone collagen, withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen has a superior absorption rate (bioavailability), meaning it is absorbed quickly and effectively into the bloodstream. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is proven to encourage collagen production within the body, and reducing pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis.
“I was diagnosed by my doctor and the hospital where I had my MRI done. I was told that I had moderate to severe arthritis. This seemingly came out of nowhere. I immediately went out and purchased a very expensive custom brace to help to mitigate the pain that I found myself in. It was then that I began taking withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen. After taking withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen for about 7-8 months, the pain that I was dealing with daily has now, for the most part, become a thing of the past” -Nicholas Lea
HOW COLLAGEN BENEFITS ATHLETES
Athletes, and aging ex-athletes of all levels can experience the benefits of withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen. Our collagen is 95% protein ad 5% moisture. Due to this composition, ingesting withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen has been shown to help with lean muscle gain, post-workout recovery, and joint health.
Athletes notice that after 2-3 months of taking our product, their body appears more ‘toned’ without changing their regular exercise pattern or eating regimes. Many professional and high-performance athletes agree that ingesting collagen is a highly effective, and natural, workout recovery. Whether you are an elite athlete or someone that likes to hike, run, bike etc. it is likely you have experienced muscle and/or joint soreness after a strenuous workout.
Significant improvement has been shown in regards to knee joint comfort after 6 months of ingesting hydrolyzed marine collagen (2). withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen does not eliminate post-exercise muscle soreness, but the 18 amino acids in our collagen help to repair your muscles, tendons, and joints post exercise.
Two of our newest products - withinUs ReHydrate + Collagen and withinUs Plant Protein + Collagen - are also great products that equally benefit both men and women.
Our premium electrolyte blend withinUs ReHydrate + TruMarine™ Collagen contains essential minerals that maximize hydration post workout, and replace the electrolytes lost from sweating during exercise. Electrolytes regulate nerve and muscle function, balance blood pH and blood pressure, and help rebuild muscle tissue. Dehydration is the primary reason that we require electrolytes, and they are difficult to replace naturally. Rehydrating with water alone does not replace the lost electrolytes, which is why supplementation is important after sweating and exercise.
Our withinUs Plant Protein + TruMarine™ Collagen is like no other on the market. It combines 4 organic plant-based ingredients that have been fermented and sprouted to optimize the digestibility of the proteins, plus TruMarine™ Collagen.
Protein is an essential part of your diet and is required to maintain muscle mass, repair tissue, help boost metabolism, and is good for overall health, but it is often thought of as bulking agent to increase muscle mass. In our research (and experience) there are more reasons to take a protein supplement. Protein is a quick and convenient way to ensure that your body is meeting its nutritional needs and protein intake. This product can be used by a diverse range of individuals such as athletes, the elderly, and those that are often on the go.
