So, what is collagen you ask?
Collagen is the major structural component of skin, and our skin is effected by various factors including ageing, diet, sleep, smoking, ultraviolet radiation, hormones, genetics, pollutants, nutrition and other environmental forces.
How do I improve my collagen levels?
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, dry skin, loose or sagging skin, finer hair, thinning hair, or even greying hair as well as weaker joints and poor tendon health. 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 your body.
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.
Drinking Collagen for improved skin!
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 skin hydration and skin elasticity, as well as improved hair growth and healthier, stronger hair, plus stronger and faster nail growth, and 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 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 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 collagen blog 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.
