What are the benefits of Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It’s actually the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including your skin, tendons, ligaments, joints, as well as our hair and nails. Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure, enhancing skin elasticity and hydration, as well as strengthening your bones - think of it like the glue that holds your body together! Collagen actually makes up about one third of the protein in our body, and helps keeps our skin supple, hair shiny, nails strong and our joints moving freely…. Did you know that up to 75% of our skin is made up of collagen – so it really is a major component of the integrity of the outer extracellular matrix (ie: what gives you smooth, healthy and glowing skin).
Collagen production starts to deplete by 1% to 2% per year from your mid 20s, so it is a powerful supplement in the beauty and skin-improvement category, as it addresses and helps support hair, skin and nails health from the inside. We all understand more and more about health and wellness supplementation, and have more information and knowledge today about what to eat, how active we need to be, and about our gut health's role on our bodies… and about how we look is proven to stem from “beauty from within”. We already know about the use of topical collagen in skincare products, but what research and technology has discovered is that hydrolyzed collagen peptides are more powerful via ingestion, resulting in collagen’s stimulatory effects to help enhance and support most of our key concerns, such as supporting fine lines, wrinkles, ageing skin, dull or dry skin, pigmentation, acne, rosecea, hair loss, greying, thinning or brittle hair, slow nail growth, loss of skin elasticity and firmness, and even cellulite and wound healing.
BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN & YOUR AGE
To understand what benefits collagen provides, it’s important to understand what collagen is…. It’s actually a substance that is produced naturally by the body, and is assisted by what we eat, how old we are, how much sleep we get, our DNA and genetics and hormones - all which combined create our natural collagen production. However, as we mentioned, from our mid-20s, we start to lose about 1% to 2% per year of our naturally produced collagen, and even more if you consider hormone changes, nutrition, smoking, high intake of sugar, poor diet, lack of sleep, high stress, pollutants and exposure to 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 or hair loss, as well as weaker joints and brittle nails. If you start to take collagen, it will help to support and increase the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein to replenish it. 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 to decline, especially in women after menopause.
Upgrade your skincare routine and combat the signs of ageing skin by drinking collagen infused beauty tea!
When you start to consume natural hydrolyzed collagen peptides, 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 ageing 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 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 is to learn what collagen can do for YOU and how it is responsible for many structures of our body’s make up like our skin, hair, nails, joints, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.
All of this means collagen is a potent and powerful anti-ageing ingredient that combats the signs of ageing skin when consistently ingested, and has remarkable properties to help maintain your skin complexion and to get hydrated, healthy glowing skin.

What are the benefits of consuming Collagen Tea?
Drinking tea has a wealth of health benefits for your body, skin and overall wellness, and is a great way to support and hydrate your body and improve your overall health….. There is so much research that proves drinking tea can actually improve your health, and the various types of tea you drink can make a big difference to improve so many ailments and conditions.
Non-herbal teas, like green tea and black tea are made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, with the amount of time the leaves are picked and processed determining whether you end up with a green, black or an oolong tea.
Another great benefit is that tea has less caffeine than coffee, and actually herbal tea blends have no caffeine as they are actually made from botanicals, plant-based roots, seeds, fruits, flowers (tisanes), plants and herbs, while traditional teas (Black, Green and Oolong), have less than 50 percent of caffeine that is typically found in coffee… so if you get the jitters from too many coffees, tea may be a great option for you to sip throughout the day!
Even though black tea has many antioxidants on its own.....green tea is even more powerful as it has even more powerful antioxidants that help to fight premature aging and reduce wrinkles
Green tea is the least processed of all the tea blends, and tends to have the highest amounts of polyphenols and antioxidants in it. Green Tea is the only type of tea that contains the polyphenol - catechin, which is why many studies have been done using only green teas. Catechins are natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and provide other benefits like reducing the formation of free radicals in the body, and protecting cells and molecules from damage. Matcha green tea also assists in diminishing the signs of ageing and is even more potent - think wrinkles be gone!
Tea is full of antioxidants which work to prevent the body’s version of rust, and thus help to keep us looking younger and help to protect us from damage from environmental factors and pollutants, UV rays, smoking, ageing, toxins and pollution. So, load up on tea, as many research studies suggest tea helps cleanse toxins, detox the system and may even assist to reduce our risk of stroke and heart disease, help with weight loss, help protect our bones and our teeth, and can also help with the digestive system and boost our immune systems!!!
