We believe that healthy, glowing skin comes from within. What you put into your body is just as – if not more – important than what you put on your skin.
If your beauty regime doesn’t include collagen, you’re missing out! But that doesn’t mean you have to add another expensive cream to the list.
Unlike topical collagen, oral collagen powder works from the inside out to strengthen the dermal layer of your skin. Here’s everything you need to know about collagen and how it can help you achieve a youthful, glowing complexion.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is important for maintaining skin elasticity, thick, healthy hair and strong nails as well as maintaining structure for tendons, skin and cartilage.
Our skin is made of over 75% collagen, which degenerates from our mid-20s and continues to decrease as we age. Collagen supplementation can have anti-aging effects with increased supplies in the body promoting smooth, glowing skin. Collagen also assists with digestion and overall gut health to further support your skin from within.
Which Type of Collagen is Best?
There are various sources of Collagen – the most popular on the market are Bovine (from cows) and Marine (from fish) sources. Marine Collagen is highly bioavailable due to the small particle sizes of the peptides compared to other sources. It’s also fast-absorbing into the bloodstream, making it easy for our bodies to use to replenish collagen stores.
There are also various types of Collagen, the most common being Type I, II and III. Type I makes up the majority of our skin, Type II our joints and cartilage, and Type III a combination of both. Marine Collagen contains Type I and II, meaning it is most effective for supporting skin firmness and elasticity and helping reduce wrinkles.
How Can I Optimise my Collagen Consumption?
An easy way to increase your body’s natural collagen production is by introducing a collagen supplement to your diet. It’s also worth noting that our bodies cannot synthesise Collagen without Vitamin C. Therefore, it’s important to choose a supplement that includes Vitamin C, as well as a good dose of antioxidants and prebiotics for maximum results.
