What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It makes up 75% of our skin, 95% of the organic compounds of our bones, and over 90% of our gut lining.
Why do we need more collagen?
Think of your skin like a sponge, if it's holding water it's full and elastic. After the age of 20 we produce around 1% less collagen each year, and even less after menopause. Less collagen means that sponge holds less water which makes it less full and less elastic.
How do collagen supplements help?
Supplementing with collagen has been clinically proven to replenish our bodies' own collagen which means younger looking skin and stronger hair and nails. It also means stronger bones and less cellulite.
What's the best way to boost collagen?
The best way to boost our collagen levels is by consuming it as an odourless, white powder which comes from animal sources such as cows. Think of it like a highly bioavailable form of bone broth.
