The Many Benefits of Collagen
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It’s a major component of connective tissues, including tendons, ligaments & skin and it helps to keep your skin healthy & bones strong.
Collagen helps to repair tissue particularly on a cellular level and it naturally deteriorates over time, so the older we get the less collagen we have. So, using a supplement can make a difference. Potential Advantages include:
- Better skincare
Collagen is produced less with your body with ageing. Research shows that products containing collagen could possibly help with slowing down the ageing by reducing wrinkles & dryness and an improvement in skin elasticity and hydration is resulted. No wonder it’s a key component to all the beauty face creams for women.
- Reduce Joint Pain
Degenerative joint disorders such as osteoarthritis occurs naturally with age. It is suggested that supplemental collagen contributes to building the cartilage and stimulating your tissue to regrow to make collagen. As a result, lower inflammation and a better joint support is formed to reduce the joint pain
- Promote heart health
Collagen also plays a vital role around your arteries, the blood vessels that help your heart pump blood around your body. Scientific reports indicate that a reduction in collagen causes artery stiffness but after patients consumed supplemental collagen, their arteries and cholesterol increased by an average of 6%.
- Better hair & nails
Collagen also helps boost your overall health and is particularly beneficial to keep your nails strong and add strength/body to your hair.
Collagen is one of those natural proteins that are not normally discussed but are vital to your overall wellbeing, and they can make a big difference in the way we age.
