Anti-Aging: a quick heads-up on Collagen Supplements.

Updated: May 10, 2019

The word collagen is derived from the Greek word “kolla” meaning glue. Collagen is said to be the “glue” that holds the entire body together, giving it strength and structure. Unfortunately, production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues. It decreases even more in women after menopause.

Collagen is a major component of your skin, a decrease leads to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. However, several studies have shown that collagen peptides or supplements containing collagen help slow the aging of your skin by reducing the dryness!

The wrinkle-reducing effects of collagen supplements have been attributed to their ability to stimulate your body to produce collagen on its own!

If taking the right one.

Additionally, taking collagen supplements may promote the production of other proteins that help structure your skin, including elastin and fibrillin.

And its not only beneficial to Anti-Aging. There are also many anecdotal claims that collagen supplements are helpful for preventing acne and other skin conditions.

That is a Bonus!

So which supplements are recommended? There are so many to choose from.

Research has found that the best ones would be a plant-based supplement that helps the body in production. These are better broken down and absorbed by the body.

Want pointed in a great direction?

Garden of Life recently launched MyKind Organic Plant Based Collagen Builder. Not only is this supplement organic but the ingredients are non-GMO and, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians. It basically contains the vitamins and minerals needed to help build collagen. Take this with a good protein source and your hair, skin, and nails will love you!

Knowledge is power.
