So, what is collagen you ask?
Collagen is a major structural component of skin, and our skin is effected by various factors including ageing, ultraviolet radiation, hormones and nutrition and other environmental forces. We start to lose about 1% to 2% per year of our natural collagen from around the age of 25, and even more if you consider smoking, intake of sugars and UV rays….. so by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of 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, loose or sagging skin, finer hair, thinning hair, or even greying hair as well as weaker joints. If you start to take collagen supplements, it’ll help to support and increase the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein to replenish it.
Actually, our bodies produce collagen naturally which is in abundance when we’re young, but unfortunately collagen production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues, especially in women after menopause.
When you start to consume natural hydrolyzed collagen, you should see noticeably firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, an improved skin surface structure, reduced cellulite, improved hair health and faster nail growth, plus even improved joints 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 aging and environmental influences. As the most abundant protein in our bodies, it’s the ‘glue’ of all our connective tissues and holds our bodies ‘together’, and is the second most abundant substance in our body behind water and is the building block of all our tissues. 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 here and reading this blog on this website is to learn that collagen is responsible for many other structures of our body’s make up like our skin, hair, nails, joints and cartilage.
Collagen is easily digested and soluble in cold or hot liquids, and you only need 1 to 2 scoops per day to help boost and support healthier hair, skin, nails, bones and joint health and more such as help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and support anti-ageing! Collagen will support improved skin elasticity and improve skin hydration and texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, promote thicker, healthier hair & strengthen your nails!
