Do we all need collagen? It is not whether you need it or not, your body produces collagen already. Many older women are taking collagen daily, in the form of powder, pills, or liquid. They may be using skincare products that contain the chemical too.
Collagen products are popping up everywhere. While collagen is most well known for and touted for its skincare benefits. Collagen is a major ingredient of lip enhancers and injections.
Collagen is a natural protein
Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein, made up of amino acids, or peptides. It literally glues our bones, cartilage, skin, and blood vessels together. Collagen makes our tissues grow, mature, and move. Once our body starts to lose collagen and have lower levels, we start to see the sagging and limpness of our skin.
The peptides are extremely safe and you should feel comfortable taking them on a daily basis. Collagen will support strong and healthy hair, skin, nails, and joints. Take it along with other protein supplements like whey, plant protein powder, and food-based proteins for a complete array of amino acids and other nutrients.
You can find collagen in various forms;
Collagen for arthritis and healing wounds
Most of the studies of collagen proteins in our body have focused on arthritis and wound healing. Collagen supplements have been found to be effective in curbing arthritis and the healing of wounds without side effects. Little research has been done on other applications, however, it is likely that collagen drinks may lead to reduced inflammation. Additional research has found that a diet high in sugar can counter the intake of collagen and lower your collagen levels. Excessive sun exposure and smoking will also contribute to decreased collagen levels.
Natural and high concentration
Aroma uses Soluble Collagen in many of our products, especially the Rooibos Collection and Cosmetics products. Collagen is a large molecule with tremendous water-binding capacity, i.e. an amazing humectant and moisturizer.
Be wary of the concentration of collagen used in the products. Many manufacturers dilute the collagen used in their products. A diluted ingredient will not be as effective.
