WHY YOU SHOULD BE CONSUMING COLLAGEN

my skin is really needing all the love it can get right now. I’m going through my vitamin c serum like crazy, reapplying moisturizer, apply my chilled eye roller all day long, and slipping some collagen into all my sips.

ANOTHER THING TO ADD TO MY SMOOTHIES!?

I’m sure you’ve all seen collagen being talked about EVERYWHERE. This is for very good reason. (Hello beauty benefits!)

WTF IS COLLAGEN?

Simply put, collagen is the main structural protein found in skin, bones, muscles, and tendons. It’s actually the most abundant protein in the human body.

With age, collagen production declines (boo000!). And of course, things like too much UV light and smoking, can cause this decline in production to move at a more rapid rate.

FACT: Because the molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin, cosmetic products that claim to contain collagen, are unlikely to do much for your skin.

MOST IMPORTANTLY – WHY ARE WE CONSUMING THIS?

We’re not spending $$$ on this stuff for nothing! Here is why you’re seeing it all over your social media feeds:

Collagen Beauty Benefits:

  • Promotes skin elasticity

  • Promotes glowy, vibrant skin (yes, please!)

  • Benefits skin hydration, reducing the appearance of fine lines

  • Increases strength of nails

  • Stimulates hair and nails to grow

Collagen Body Benefits:

  • Protects organs

  • Can reduce GI Inflammation, improving digestion

  • Provides structure to joints and tendons

  • Helps to relieve joint pain by reducing inflammation

  • Helps to increase bone density

  • May reduce risk of bone disorders

Some say it can even improve your mood and reduce anxiety!
