Did you know your body produces less collagen as you get older? Keep reading to find out why collagen should be the latest addition to your skincare routine.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein. It’s found naturally in your body and is the main component in the tissues that make up your tendons, muscles, and skin. Collagen has plenty of roles, from strengthening your bones to helping blood clot effectively, but (in the wellness industry) it’s often associated with firmer, supple skin — this is because collagen is what gives skin its structure.
Why do people take collagen supplements?
As we get older, our bodies start to produce less collagen — that’s one of the reasons our joints can become weaker as we age, and why our skin may start to lose its elasticity. This is natural, of course, but many people take collagen supplements to look after their skin from the inside out. Think of collagen as anti-wrinkle cream in supplement form.
What type of collagen supplement should I try?
The best supplement for you is often the one that is the easiest to take. We have two types of collagen supplements that are easy to add to any routine.
Our Collagen Beauty Gummies contain 120mg of hydrolysed collagen per serving. The natural strawberry flavour is delicious, and with only 3g sugar per serving.
If you prefer to incorporate collagen into your diet, our Unflavoured Collagen Powder mixes easily with any shake or smoothie. Try adding to baked oats or a pancake mix for a protein filled breakfast.
