FEEL THE DIFFERENCE
Collagen is a major component of our hair, skin, nails and cartilage; giving strength through fibres that are like our own natural elastic. As we move into our mid-twenties, production of collagen fades and the structures weaken.
Environmental factors including UV exposure, poor diet and toxins can add damage to our collagen stores. As well as protecting ourselves from the sun and eating well, the addition of an external source of collagen to our routine will replenish these stores back to a healthy level.
Scientific Studies on How Collagen Affects Our Body
Collagen provides support to various tissues such as tendons, ligaments, skin, teeth, and many other connective tissue structures.
Clinical trials revealed that regular daily intake of 5g of fish collagen reduced wrinkles and improved skin firmness over an 8-week period.
A study on Collagen supplementation in combination with resistance training showed that Collagen improved body composition by increasing muscle strength and tone and the loss in fat.
A study on the effects of collagen ingestion on growth and thickness of hair, found that the thickness of hair increased significantly after collagen ingestion for 62 days, and more pulling force was required to break the thickened hair. Hair thickness returned to initial size when collagen ingestion stopped.
