Want to learn more? We’ve got all the details you need to know!
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is made up of three amino acids (glycine, proline and hydroxyproline). Collagen is the building block of skin, hair, nails and joints, which provides structure and stability to all connective tissue in the body.
Unfortunately, from the age of 25, natural collagen production declines by around 1.5-2.0% each year. This decline in collagen production leads to visible signs of aging on the skin, brittle hair and nails, and weak joints.
The good news is, you can supplement with collagen to give your body the anti-aging and hydrating boost it needs!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN?
Collagen makes up around 75% of the dermis layer of the skin. Collagen has a tightly coiled structure which gives the skin firmness and elasticity. As a result, collagen has amazing skin benefits such as:
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- Increased skin hydration
- Increased skin elasticity and firmness
- Creates a smooth, plump, and glowy complexion
HAIR & NAILS
Collagen is also found in hair and nails, which helps to:
- Promote growth of hair and nails
- Improve hair and nail strength
- Reduce breakage of hair and nails
Collagen is found in joints, cartilage, ligaments and bones. Without enough collagen, you may find yourself prone to injury, or regularly experiencing joint pain. Collagen helps to:
- Increase joint strength
- Prevent injury risk
- Promote healing and regeneration of joints
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES?
Marine collagen, which is derived from fish skin and scales, is the most effective type of collagen to improve the appearance of hair, skin and nails. Marine collagen has a high bioavailability and is readily absorbed in the body due to its low molecular size.
Marine collagen contains mostly type 1 collagen fibres, which is the specific type of collagen found in the skin. As a result, you will be arming your skin with enough collagen to offset further aging, as well as giving your skin a mega dose of glow.
Increased hair growth and improved nail strength are also benefits of marine collagen.
Bovine collagen, which is derived from cow, is typically more effective in improving joint and gut health. This is because bovine collagen contains mostly type 3 collagen fibres which is mainly found in cartilage, intestines and blood vessels.
This type of collagen is typically less bioavailable due to the larger size of the molecules compared to marine collagen.
It is advantageous to take collagen as natural collagen production declines as we age, and obtaining enough from the diet can be a real struggle. So if you're looking to increase skin hydration and firmness, while strengthening your hair and nails, you should absolutely take collagen!
