You’ve seen it everywhere.
In drugstores, beauty shops, department stores—Collagen is the new “in” thing. And it’s in everything! Creams, powders cosmetics, and pills. If it’s for the skin, collagen is in it! Looks like it’s become the new fountain of youth.
But is all that just hype?
Most definitely not!
Let me tell you why. You have a generous supply of collagen in your body. In fact, it makes up about one-third of the protein in your body! It helps provide your hair, skin, bones, nails, tendons, and ligaments with structure. With collagen, you have an improved ability to stretch, bend—and simply move. Collagen also helps bring luster to your hair, glow to your skin, and strength to your nails.
Unfortunately, we can’t stay young forever. (I wish!)
Age and stress catch up with us and slow down our collagen production. Which is why getting collagen into our diet can help our bodies restore what’s been depleted or broken down.
Interesting, right? So what exactly does collagen do for your body?
1. Reverses the visible signs of skin aging
One of the best-known benefits of collagen is its potent ability to promote your skin’s radiance and elasticity. With time, your natural ability to produce collagen declines, resulting in fine lines and dryness. Collagen stimulates skin rejuvenation and restores its luminosity and suppleness.
2. Promotes lustrous hair and strong nails
Collagen helps you reduce hair loss, promotes thicker, longer, and more lustrous hair within a short period, and fosters hair regrowth. It strengthens the structure of your hair follicles (these are responsible for your hair color) to help darken graying hair. It also effectively reduces hair breakage and split ends by restoring its moisture levels, making it possible to maintain gorgeous-looking hair, even as you age.
Collagen is one of our nail’s main building blocks. It helps strengthen nails, reduces nail breakage and can boost your nail’s growth by around 12%.
3. Boosts bone and joint health
Collagen activates cartilage growth and repair (as it does wear out as a result of aging and constant movement). Over time, ligaments stretch and tendons, and bones scrape against each other, eventually causing pain. With collagen, you can stay active, relieve joint pains, and even achieve your fitness goals.
4. Promotes healthy digestion and gut health
The amino acids contained in collagen helps soothe and heal your tummy issues, resulting in better nutrient and water absorption.
Now, it’s important to note these three main types of collagen:
- TYPE 1 is best for skin, nail, hair, organs, ligaments, and bone health.
- TYPE 2 is for joint health, specifically your cartilage and tendons.
- TYPE 3 is for bone health, including your connective tissues, cartilage, and tendons.
How then can I improve my body’s collagen production?
There are so many important benefits of collagen so let’s talk about ways you can guarantee you’re producing enough of it in your body!
You can augment your collagen formation through increased consumption of foods that contain amino acids, vitamin C, copper, and zinc.
