Tough workout session? Feeling sore and stiff? It could be due to depleting collagen levels which over time causes inflammation and muscle damage. If you’re looking to recover faster after your workout and up your fitness game, then supplementing with Ingenious Active can support muscle recovery whilst boosting strength and fitness.
‘Taking Ingenious Active has improved my muscle recovery time enabling me to train harder with positive results.’
Kate Rowe-Ham, PT and Fitness Coach.
Most of us have come to experience the benefits of protected collagen on skin, hair and nail health but are less familiar with how it can help support our body. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body: it makes up the building blocks of our skin and provides the foundation of our bones, joints, tendons and muscles.
As we age, our bodies become less efficient at producing collagen which can lead to a slower recovery time. Our natural supply of collagen starts to deplete at a rate of 1.5% every year, falling by as much as 30% by the time we reach the age of 45.
Whether you’re a gym-goer, yogi, athlete or lead a busy on-the-go lifestyle, supplementing with protected collagen is the ideal way to help build and repair the muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage that are stressed during exercise.
Leading mid-life PT and fitness coach, Kate Rowe-Ham, comments ‘Muscle recovery is vital as we age because this will enable you to build endurance and mobility at this time. I always train my upper and lower body separately so that the group of muscles working has time for recovery and repair and ensure I have 1-2 full days rest a week. As well as taking Ingenious Active, rehydration is key and eating a well-balanced diet will also support muscle recovery as will monitoring your intake of alcohol.’
Taking a daily dose of Ingenious Active can replenish your body’s collagen levels which is vital for maintaining fitness and speeding up recovery time.
