What is Collagen?

Chances are you’ve heard of collagen before as it’s become a bit of a “buzzword” when it comes to the beauty industry. But what actually is it?

Benefits of Collagen

Improves Skin Health

Collagen most notably helps your skin cells adhere to one another, and also gives your skin strength, elasticity and its youthful, vibrant complexion.

Relieves Joint Pain

Collagen is found in your articular cartilage, which allows your joints to slide, bend and move smoothly. Collagen helps your joints stay flexible, absorb shocks and generally stay well-supported

Promotes Heart Health

Collagen supports the structure of your arteries, helping the flow of blood to and from your heart, improves cholesterol levels and balances blood pressure.

And then you get older...

Your body’s natural production of collagen begins to slow around your mid twenties, leading to premature signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, hair thinning, joint pains and others.

But there are ways to slow the aging process, and in some cases even reverse its effects by consuming collagen

4 Best Ways to Consume Collagen

Adding More Collagen to Your Diet

Of course, there are plenty of collagen supplements out there on the market but if you’re looking for something a little tastier, then look no further. Chicken, fish, shellfish and even bone broth are packed full of collagen that will give your body loads of finger lickin’ health benefits.

And if you’re not into eating meat, then don’t worry, you can always berries, tomatoes, bell peppers, nuts, beans, citrus & tropical fruits to keep your levels of collagen higher for longer.

Collagen Drinks

If you’re looking for something that’s going to take less time to prepare then collagen drinks may be for you. You can easily find pre-made, or powdered, collagen drinks that’ll be perfect for your post-workout hydration! Just throw it in your gym bag for later and drink it when you need it.

Collagen Lotions

There’s a little bit of controversy surrounding these lotions as many don’t have collagen as an ingredient. Why? Because the collagen molecule is too big to penetrate the skin’s outer layer.

Instead, they contain collagen peptides or collagen broken into smaller components, which can penetrate the skin and stimulate the body’s production of collagen

These lotions help to plump, hydrate and brighten your skin whilst filling in fine lines and wrinkles.
