Loose skin is caused by the loss of collagen and elastin. Gaining and Losing Weight causes loose skin.. Building and Losing Muscle can do the same. Skin has to stretch as we move, grow, gain or/and lose weight. When you lose or gain weight, these elastic components of your skin not only lose the layers of fat that keep it tight, they also don’t have much time for their elasticity to adapt to your new shape.
Elastin is an elastic/rubbery protein that helps your skin stretch and return to its original size and shape. Elasticity of your skin is vital to whether you can avoid or tighten loose skin after weight loss or weight gain. The same applies to bodybuilders and athletes as they gain and lose muscle weight. As you increase size the skin can stretch and shows signs of stretch marks/ or saggy excess skin if they don’t maintain the muscles size. Fat cells can develop in the extra space.
What many people think is “Fat” is actually loose or excess skin. For men, it’s the lower abdomen and back (love handles), and for women, it’s the hips, thighs, and butt. Not coincidentally, these are also the area’s most often associated with loose or excess skin problems. Diet and cardio, is great for losing not just weight and body fat, but skin elasticity as well causing the skin to sag which can make to look smaller but fatter. CollagenFit is vital for skin elasticity and a tighter looking body.
Why choose Collagen Fit?
Improved Skin Appearance
Improved Skin Elasticity
Improved Joint Health
Contains over 1500 Amino Acids
Some people refer to CollagenFit as the glue that holds the body together. CollagenFit provides proteins that ensure elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage, bone, and muscles tissue. Collagen Fit contains superior Collagen which is a protein. In fact, collagen is the largest and most abundant protein in the body, making up about 65% of our total protein.
Collagen is a chain of over 1500 amino acids. CollagenFit formulation contains Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid to assist the body in the manufacture of collagen plus Bromelain effective in speeding up recovery from exercise and injury, as well as from surgical procedures. Without collagen, your body would, quite literally, fall apart.
What is in CollagenFit?
Collagen Fit contains Collagen Hydrolysate made from high grade gelatin, which has been extracted from cattle hides. The first step of processing separates the skin’s outer layer from the inner layer. The outer layer is used in the leather industry. The inner layer is used by the gelatin industry. Gelatin is 83% protein, 15% water, and 2% minerals. Gelatin contains all essential human amino acids.
Collagen Fit For Lean Muscle Tone
Tighten and Firms Skin
Support Skin Tone for Weight Loss
Helps Burn Body Fat
CollagenFit supports muscle building by facilitating the synthesis of creatine in the body (3). CollagenFit contains a smaller molecule than any other protein that can quickly boost lean muscle, decrease recovery time, and rebuild damage joint structures. Protein Powders are not even in the same category as CollagenFit. Collagen found in CollagenFit is an excellent source of arginine, proline and glycine, three building blocks of cartilage that are essential for refueling after exercise and sports.
Collagen Fit For Physical Performance
Promotes Joint Health
Fast Recovery from Exercise
Supports Sport Related Injury Recovery
Human muscles are often the main focus to enhance physical performance such as endurance or strength. Connecting tissue is a major part of muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilages and bones. These connecting tissues are the second biggest mass and organ in our body and are as important for physical performance as the muscles but they are often not the focus.
These connective tissues are needed for the main structure of our body, to form tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones and to maintain the muscle structure. These connective tissues contain mainly very flexible collagen structures that are cross linked to bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles that give extreme stability to these structures.
Long term continuous strenuous exercise leads to collagen degradation. These degradations are slow and progressive developments and symptoms such as pain only appear in advanced stages. Nutrient undersupply and nutrient deficiencies can accelerate these degenerative processes or increase inflammation. CollagenFit supplies nutrients needed to build new collagen, which is good news for any athlete with worn out knees. Daily use showed a reduction of risk for injuries on muscle, tendons, and ligaments. .
Collagen Fit For Joints and Inflammation
Regenerates Ligaments and Tendons
Improves Joint Elasticity
Reduces Inflammation and Joint Pain
Aids Joint Repair
CollagenFit is becoming recognized for its value in Pain Control without the side effects of prescription drugs and over the counter pain meds. Nutrients in CollagenFit have been shown to help heal the pain, rather than covering it up and causing more damage.
A clinical trial of 24-weeks duration showed improvement for joint pain in athletes who were treated with the dietary supplements found in CollagenFit. The results of this study have implications that Nutrients found in CollagenFit help to support joint health and possibly reduce the risk of joint deterioration in a high-risk group. Despite the study’s size and limitations, the results suggest that athletes consuming collagen hydrolysate can reduce parameters (such as pain) that have a negative impact on athletic performance.

Collagen Fit Verses Protein
Superior Source of Protein
Normal digestion breaks down protein into peptides and amino acids, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream. Protein found in foods and protein powders must first be broken down many times by the digestive system, and then absorbed through the intestine into the blood as amino acids than reassembled into your collagen at the proper site. Protein digestion is often incomplete, resulting is some very large peptide chains. These long molecules are not well utilized in the body’s efforts to keep up with the declining production of collagen. With ColllagenFit, the protein breakdown is pre-engineered, resulting in a ready to go Collagen.
Studies show Collagen is 40% more satiating than other proteins (casein, soy, and whey). (2) CollagenFit is relatively inexpensive protein source that nourishes muscles and skin which will help the body burn more fat. (1). CollagenFit can be helpful in tightening the skin during and after weight loss and weight gain.
Collagen Fit for Tight Skin
Improved appearance of the skin
Better skin elasticity
Support Skin Tone for Weight Loss

CollagenFit Ingredient breakdown:
Hydrolysate Collagen is a modified form of collagen that has been enzymatically broken down to tncrease the protein’s digestibility and increase the amino acids’ absorbability. Hydrolyzed collagen is derived from bovine bone and cartilage. Usually, the bone is crushed, ground, defatted, soaked in acid to remove the calcium, soaked again to break the collagen bonds and then dehydrated. This process results in small, intact amino acids which have not been damaged. These amino acids are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, and are used as the building blocks of new collagen.
Vitamin C, that wonder substance for keeping away colds, reducing inflammation and strengthening our immune systems, has a major role in collagen production and maintenance! Vitamin C is an essential part of skin health both as a small molecular weight antioxidant and as a critical factor for collagen synthesis!
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is needed to bind collagen with elastin, which are fibers that give connective tissue its stretch. HA begins to decrease in your early 20s and this accelerates when you hit 40. (6) The decrease in the amount of hyaluronic fluid and its synthesis, which in turn leads to a decrease in intra-cellular fluid. This results in skin and joints that is drier and more vulnerable to damage.
Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme found in pineapples that may aid in digestion as well as reduce pain and inflammation. Numerous studies in humans have shown Bromelain to be effective in speeding up recovery from exercise and injury, as well as from surgical procedures.
Whats the recommended dosage?
Suggested Use: Dissolve 1-3 scoops CollagenFit into a glass of water. For optimum absorption, take on an empty stomach.
