Ever wondered how it ACTUALLY works?
We all have encountered a product that has Collagen listed as one of its ingredients. But what do we really know about it?
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is a type of protein in our body. It is found in our muscles, tendons, skin, and bones. It gives the skin elasticity and strength.
Collagen production slows down as we age, that is why you would notice sagging, wrinkles, and even weaker cartilages as we grow old. Some other causes would include smoking, high sugar diet, and sun exposure that leads to skin damage.
Women have less collagen than men, that is why you notice sagging and wrinkles easier on women.
WHAT DOES COLLAGEN DO?
In early times, collagen (a form of it- bone broth or gelatin) was used in China for medication for food allergies and sensitivities. The collagen filled bones are boiled for days until it release gelatin substance which is collagen. (FYI: Gelatin is actually Collagen that is broke down)
Collagen acts as the body’s glue since collagen is present in every muscle, ligament, tendon, skin, and even tissues.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS WE CAN GET FROM COLLAGEN?
By ensuring that we have enough collagen in our body, we can combat skin ageing, make your skin firmer and look smoother. Collagen also helps in renewing and repairing the skin.
Collagen also helps with the joints as it “lubricates” squeaky and rusting tendons, ligaments, and joints. It also strengthens nails and teeth as it is their building block!
Collagen can also give you a boost of metabolism as the amino acid Glycine is found in Collagen, it helps pump sugar in the body’s tissue to increase energy levels.
HOW CAN WE TAKE COLLAGEN?
Nowadays, Collagen is in every beauty product bottle, with the promise of greater skin and more. But what and how is the right way to take Collagen?
Based on studies, Collagen is still best absorbed when ingested. There are foods that can help build up your collagen levels, and there are products that you can avail to get your dose of collagen.
