You may have noticed ‘collagen’ become a bit of a buzzword in mainstream media, particular in the health, beauty, and wellness sectors. Every day, there is a new supplement, diet or blog touting its advantages.
With an abundance of sources of collagen in the market, it can be confusing to understand just how it is beneficial to you inside and out.
Let’s first explore what collagen is.
Collagen is a highly influential protein in our bodies that plays an essential role in the strength and functionality of our bones, joints, connective tissues, muscles, gut, nails, hair and skin. In fact, 75–80 percent of our skin’s constitution is made up of collagen.
With our daily grind and the excess to which we use each of our bodily resources, we need to ensure we are offering additional support to our body’s production, particularly if we want to enjoy a youthful, long-lasting, glowing complexion.
Our bodies naturally produce collagen by combining amino acids – from protein-rich foods such as lean meat, fish, dairy and eggs – with key vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, zinc and copper. The problem however, is that as we age, the ability our body has to generate and stimulate collegen naturally dicipates. This leads to visible fine lines & wrinkles along with skin sagging & dullness.
