Why is Collagen Important?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is present in our muscles, skin, bones and tendons, working as a "glue" that helps hold the body together. It gives our skin strength and elasticity, and is responsible for the replacement and renewal of dead skin cells.
As we age, our body’s collagen production naturally slows down. As a result, we notice wrinkles and sagging skin, as well as weaker cartilage in our joints.
Other factors that contribute to depleting collagen levels include:
Did you know?
75% of our
skin is made up
We start losing around
1.5% of collagen a
year in our early 20’s.
Hence there is deﬁnitely a need for us to start paying attention to this important protein!
Collagen has many uses apart from supporting skin health.
Here are the key beneﬁts:
As we age, collagen production declines. This results in sagging skin, wrinkles and weaker skin elasticity. Increasing collagen in your body can help to ﬁrm your skin, increase smoothness, and renew and repair your skin cells.
Are your joints starting to feel jittery? That’s a loss of collagen rearing its head. When we lose collagen, our tendons and ligaments start moving with less ease, leading to stiffness, swollen joints and more. What’s more, a recent study has found that collagen it is effective in treating osteoarthritis and other joint disorders.
BOOSTS METABOLISM & ENERGY
Glycine, found in collagen, helps with the regulation of blood sugar by converting glucose into energy. It also supports muscle development by improving muscle strength and performance. Complement your collagen supplementation with vitamin C to support collagen synthesis.
STRENGTHENS NAILS & TEETH
Collagen protein is the building block of your ﬁngernails and teeth. Adding collagen into your diet can keep your nails strong and teeth healthy!
For those who are intending to detox, collagen is extremely helpful. That’s because glycine is a precursor amino acid for glutathione, which supports liver health and ability to detoxify toxic substances.
REDUCE CELLULITE OR STRETCH MARKS
When our skin loses its elasticity, more visible cellulite will begin to surface. Improving your skin’s elasticity through collagen will help reduce that dimpling on your skin.
Do they really work?
While there has been ongoing debate on whether ingesting collagen does lead to increased collagen in skin, recent studies have shown that consuming collagen supplements can help promote skin health, and increase skin moisture and elasticity.
Results from studies have shown the following:
Collagen found in your everyday diet is usually too big to penetrate through the skin.
But Taut® collagen molecules are broken down through a revolutionary hydrolysis process.
These low molecular weight collagen peptides can then be rapidly absorbed by the body.
