What Does Collagen Do For Weight Loss?

Learn What Collagen Does For Weight Loss With The Aspen Clinic

Often seen as the body’s structural superhero, collagen works to maintain your skin’s elasticity, improve joint health, and additionally plays a role in strengthening your hair. Collagen supports the body in a myriad of ways, but it can also make a considerable impact when it comes to losing and keeping weight off. That’s why we highly recommend our popular Collagen Protein product, exclusively from The Aspen Clinic in Louisiana.

Understanding Collagen’s Role and Benefits 

A fibrous protein found in skin, tendons, bones, and connective tissues, think of collagen as you would a building’s frame. It keeps everything upright and sturdy. However, collagen production naturally decreases over time. This decrease is largely responsible for sagging skin, joint pains, and thin, fine, or brittle hair. Luckily for those experiencing weight-loss-induced hair loss, collagen can also indirectly support strong, healthy hair regrowth. 

The Connection Between Collagen and Weight Loss

Collagen’s lesser-known benefit relates to its great potential to aid in weight loss. The protein can have a filling effect when it comes to nutrition, allowing you to feel fuller and more satisfied for longer portions of time. When the compound is integrated into a balanced diet, it can help reduce the overall amount of calories you consume by lessening cravings for excessive snacking or foods that directly sabotage dieting efforts. 

Additionally, collagen helps counteract natural muscle loss and a slowing metabolism–two present factors as people age. There’s also evidence to suggest that collagen may work to build and preserve lean muscle mass. This is great news for our older patients and people working toward weight loss later in life.

What is Collagen and Does it Aid in Weight Loss?

Collagen accounts for a significant amount of the overall protein in your body. It has a widely-shared reputation for keeping your skin elastic and full. It also actively combats arthritis and osteoporosis, supporting skeletal health and a healthy range of motion in your joints, ligaments, and tendons. As you get older, you lose much of your collagen, resulting in wrinkles, less flexibility, and other normal signs of aging. The Aspen Clinic goes a step further by combining Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil with our collagen-based protein powder. MCT oil is a unique type of healthy fat that can improve cognitive function, boost energy and endurance, and lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. When collagen and MCT work together properly, they aid in weight loss. 

How MCT Oil Enhances Collagen’s Effects

The body rapidly absorbs both collagen and MCTs, quickly converting them into brain energy. This makes MCT oil an excellent addition to cardio and weight-lifting routines, enhancing endurance, and burning stomach fat. MCT oil can additionally work to control your appetite, making it much easier to stick to your weight loss plan and calorie deficit goals. MCT oil also increases good HDL cholesterol levels, lowers bad LDL, and aids in regulating blood sugar levels.
