Collagen may have been the most overlooked supplement on the market, until recently. It is the most abundant structural protein in the body and the chief protein that makes up connective tissue. Collagen is the substance that holds all of our trillions of cells together. It contributes as much as 30 percent of the body’s entire protein content.
Collagen production begins to diminish in our bodies about our mid-20s. From that point on, it has been estimated that we lose approximately 1 percent of our collagen per year throughout the body. Thus, collagen supplementation to confront this inconvenient truth is something that many should consider, particularly those ages 30 and beyond.
Enter Max Skulpt
With a desire to leave no nutritional foundation absent, the team at Max Muscle Nutrition has worked to architecture a truly elite solution for your collagen needs. Enter Max Skulpt!
Max Skulpt is THE solution for boosting your health and fitness regimen with collagen protein peptides to drive your health, physique, and fitness. The myriad of benefits from collagen supplementation includes supporting healthy hair, skin, nails, tendons, lean muscle growth, fat loss, blood vessels, other connective tissue growth and health, longevity promotion, and gut health.
With such a shotgun range of benefits, it makes supplementing with collagen a no-brainer. In fact, collagen benefits are a main reason why people are preparing and/or drinking bone broth. With Max Skulpt, you can save the trouble of hours-long bone broth food prep, as well as adding a cost-effective, simpler, more economical solution to meet your needs.
Max Skulpt contains an efficacious and clinically-validated dose of 15g of collagen protein per serving. The concentrated solution is made up of both Type 1 and Type 3 collagen for optimizing body composition, structure, and anti-aging benefits. What’s more is that it comes in multiple unique and delicious flavors!
This unique collagen elixir is a complete and highly pure protein, containing all of the nine essential amino acids. These include a spectrum of glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, lysine, and hydroxylysine to provide the requisite foundational components for structuring healthy hair, skin, nails, and other musculoskeletal tissues.
The bioactive peptides, called BODYBALANCE, are derived from a highly controlled production process of collagen, which is determined by hydrolysation conditions. As a result of this process, Max Skulpt’s unique formula differs in physiological functionality than other collagen peptides on the market. The unique feature is that these peptides are designed to drive stimulation of the human cell types involved in collagen biosynthesis (production). Unlike other formulas, Max Skulpt also further drives cosmetic benefits by including a full daily value of Biotin! That means it is a great support for healthy hair, skin, nails, joints, and connective tissues! And, collagen also supports blood vessel health.
In addition, thanks to scientific research, collagen supplementation has been shown to play a key role in the health of the gut microbiome lining as well, making it a key player in maintaining and/or restoring a healthy gut ecology.
Max Skulpt is a great product for body composition and active lifestyle. Recently published clinical studies have confirmed the safety and efficacy of collagen peptides. A recently published study has demonstrated the positive effects on body composition from the daily intake of 15 grams of collagen protein peptides in conjunction with resistance training. The study found that those supplementing with the collagen protein peptides like those found in Max Skulpt had substantially favorable increases in lean body mass, fat loss, and muscle strength compared to the contrasted placebo group.
Current clinical data suggest that the mode of action is based on the multifactorial impact of bioactive collagen peptides on various metabolic processes and the overall functional unit of muscle (e.g., muscle and fat metabolism). Furthermore, the protein peptides in Max Skulpt have been observed to stimulate muscle growth via an up-regulation of the mTOR signaling pathway, promoting muscle protein synthesis, and reducing muscle protein breakdown, or wasting.
The collagen peptides in Max Skulpt have also been shown to optimize fat oxidation in the body (using fat for fuel) by stimulating the AMPK enzyme, a master regulator for the energy transfer in the muscle cells. Due to its prolific amino acid composition and its excellent bioavailability, Max Skulpt can help stimulate fat and muscle metabolism to maximize your physique remodeling needs.
