So, what is collagen you ask?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and is also the major structural component of skin, hair, nails, bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, bones and so much more like gut health and other soft tissue! It's like the glue that holds everything together. Our skin is affected by so many various factors including ageing, diet, sugar-intake, sleep, stress, smoking, ultraviolet radiation, hormones, genetics, pollutants, nutrition, genetics and other environmental forces.
How much collagen should I have daily?
We start to lose about 1% to 2% per year of our natural collagen production from around the age of 25, and even more if you consider smoking, intake of sugars, diet, genetics, pollutants, your age, and exposure to UV rays….. so by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of natural collagen in our bodies – which is what we call ‘ageing’ and is most noticeable in our skin and hair quality – which therefore results in wrinkles, fine lines, dull and/or dry skin, loose or sagging skin, finer hair, thinning hair, hair loss, or simply greying hair, as well as weaker joints and poor tendon and bone health. If you start to take collagen tea as a daily supplementation, as part of your skincare and wellness routine, it’ll help to support and increase the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein to replenish your body. SImply drink 2 cups daily to help support your natural collagen levels, as the hydrolyzed collagen peptides we use in our collagen tea are specifically formulated to support skin, hair and nails, and are concentrated, so you don't need a big scoop - just two serves of Fusspot Collagen Beauty Tea will help you to supplement your daily collagen boost.
It should also be noted, that our bodies produce collagen naturally which is in abundance when we’re young, but unfortunately, as collagen production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues to decline as we get older, (and especially in women after menopause), and in women who are approaching their mid 30s and early 40s when the signs of collagen loss start to show - such as dry, dull, less radiant skin, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging or loose skin, skin pigmentation, greying hair, hair loss, weakened or splitting hair, brittle nails and slow nail growth, as well as weakened joints and ligaments - collagen peptides help to slow down collagen loss. It therefore makes sense to start drinking collagen tea to prevent collagen loss in your 20's, and to manage your collagen supplementation in your 30's, and to then maintain your skin radiance and slow down the ageing process in your 40's and 50's. It's never too early to start drinking organic tea infused with collagen peptides.
Drinking Collagen for improved skin!
When you start to consume natural hydrolyzed collagen peptides, you should start to see noticeably firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, an improved skin surface structure, reduced cellulite, improved skin hydration and skin elasticity, less skin pigmentation, as well as improved hair growth plus healthier, stronger hair, and stronger and faster nail growth, and even improved joints, ligaments and bone health as well.
As collagen is recognised by the fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of our skin, it results in an increased production of dermal collagen replacing what is lost through ageing and environmental influences. As the most abundant protein in our bodies, it’s like the ‘glue’ of all our connective tissues in our body, and holds our everything ‘together’, and is the second most abundant substance in our body behind water and is the building block of all our soft tissue.
Collagen makes up 75% of our skin, over 90% of our ligaments and tendons and 35% of our bones – so, yup, it’s pretty important! But why you’re on this page and reading about collagen peptides, is to discover that collagen is responsible for many other structures of our body’s make up like our skin, hair, nails, joints and cartilage.
