Collagen is one of the most common proteins in our body. Unfortunately as we get older our natural collagen production in our body decreases and so does our bodies ability to make it. This is one of the reasons why collagen supplementation is becoming so popular, as it is an easy and effective way to replace this lost collagen. But why do we need collagen and why is it so important? Read on to find out the key benefits of taking collagen


Healthy Skin & Hair

Collagen is extremely important for the health of your skin and hair and is the main building block of our skin. In fact decreasing collagen is one of the biggest causes of visible signs off ageing, such as wrinkles and looser skin. By supplementing collagen as we get older we can help reduce these problems and improve skin hydration, firmness and elasticity. In fact recent studies have shown that regular collagen supplementation (more than 3g a day) for 8 weeks can help reduce wrinkles by 20%


Healthy Joints Collagen is also an important part of our joints, tendons and ligaments. So as we get older and produce less collagen it is not surprising that our joints start to hurt more and get stiffer. In fact a number of recent studies have shown that collagen supplementation can help reduce joint pain and joint stiffness and reduce the risk of joint worsening


Improved Digestion

Firstly collagen helps to absorb water which allows digestion to move smoothly. Collagen can also help to heal your stomach and gut linings and to keep them healthy. So taking collagen can be great for helping to improve digestion and help keep our digestive tract healthy


Reduce Appearance of Cellulite

One of the reasons why cellulite becomes more visible as you get older is that your skin loses its elasticity and becomes less firm. As collagen helps to improve skin elasticity and skin health it can help reduce the visibility of cellulite
