An Introduction to Collagen

An Introduction to Collagen

You’ve seen it on beauty cream ads for years, a topical cream that promises to restore firmness and vitality to your skin, but collagen has a much deeper role to play in your health. Skin, bones and the cartilage between your muscles and joints all contain collagen. It’s the tough stuff that gives your body elasticity and makes you way, way more resilient than you probably imagined.

Your body is remarkably strong. It’s evolved to run and jump and do all kinds of amazing things, and it’s thanks in no small part to collagen. But, the ads are right, as we age, collagen levels drop, it degrades and becomes less resilient. If you’re slightly older, or you do a lot of sport, your collagen may take more of a beating, which is where supplementation can help.

A small amount of collagen supplementation each day, can help to repair and restore tired collagen, and help you to look and feel way, way better. Of course, hydration, as well as plenty of good sleep and exercise helps too.

Why should I take a collagen supplement?

That really depends on your age, activity level and goals, although most people can benefit from modest collagen supplementation. No two people develop and age in exactly the same way. Some people have clearer, tighter skin, others are plagued by knee pain. Collagen levels are an important consideration in these cases.

If you’re looking for healthier skin, hair, bones and joints, it’s a good idea to look into supplementation with collagen. Coconut and collagen supplementation has even been linked to various beauty benefits. Read more about them in the linked article below:
