Right now, It seems to be all the rage and it’s no wonder because this protein is fully packed with benefits!
But before we talk about the benefits, Let's first explain what Collagen is.
Collagen is the largest protein in our bodies and is found in our bones, muscles, skin and tendons. Our body produces this collagen naturally and it is strong and flexable but what some of us may not know is that our bodies collagen production naturally starts to decline around age 25. However, That's just the beginning, it continues to decline even more in women after menopause especially in women who smoke or have been exposed to UV rays. Collagen replenishment is very important for skin’s elasticity, has many health benefits and is safe to take daily.
Let’s find out some of the benefits of Collagen and why it is important to add Collagen in your daily routine:
Collagen is the main structural protein of the connective tissues that are found in bone, skin, cartilage and tendons. When Collagen is digested, it is broken down into amino acids. Your body then takes this broken down collagen and delivers it to wherever the need is greatest for example, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, etc.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and it gives structure to your skin. Research has shown that Collagen consumption can increase skin elasticity and help your body’s skin repair process.
Most people prefer Collagen Peptides because they’re broken down into smaller molecules and therefore, absorbed faster in the body.
#3. Reduces the appearance of cellulite*
Cellulite is something so many women seem to encounter at some point in their lives. With age our skin loses elasticity therefore, becoming thin which is why we start to notice our cellulite more. As our skin thins and stretches it allows cellulite to become more visible. By adding a collagen supplement into your routine, in time, can improve skin’s elasticity and thickness.*
