Top 5 Benefits of Taking Collagen Supplements Every Kiwi Should Know

 

 

What is Collagen? Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body and found in our bones, muscles, skin and tendons. It is also a substance that holds our body together and provides it strength and structure. This substance is needed by our body to have healthy joints and skin stretchiness.

As we get older, the existing collagen in our body breaks down and its production slows down. We can not measure exactly how much collagen our body needs, but when it drops, we may have symptoms such as joint pain or stiff tendons or ligaments and our body may weaken. We could also have papery skin. Knowing the dangers  of not having enough collagen in our body, what should we do to not suffer too much? 

Using collagen shots has become a practice in some plastic surgery procedures to push our body to make more collagen. But, this kind of practice should be done again after a few months to keep up the effects. On the other hand, studies have shown that taking collagen supplements can improve our skin’s elasticity, lessen dryness, and boost collagen density.

With this in mind, what really are the benefits of taking collagen supplements that every Kiwi should know? How can these collagen supplements help us not to suffer too much from the negative effects brought by the lack of collagen in our body?

 

Do Collagen Supplements Really Work?

In recent years, collagen supplements have become common. Most of these supplements are hydrolyzed, meaning, they are broken down, making it easier for our body to absorb them though eating foods that are sources of collagen including fish, chicken, and fruits..

Some studies have shown that taking collagen supplements for several months can improve skin elasticity and appearance (i.e. wrinkles and roughness) as well as signs of aging. While others have shown that consuming collagen can increase density in bones weakened with age and can improve joint, back and knee pain.

While we can make the amino acids that are essential to produce more collagen from other foods in our diet, consuming collagen supplements appears to be more effective for replacing collagen than making collagen from other sources and that is because collagen supplements provide more of the amino acids necessary to replace collagen.

 Top 5 Benefits of Collagen Supplements Every Kiwi Should Know 

1.   Gives better skin health

Based on several studies (1, 2, 3, 4), collagen peptides or supplements may help slow the process of aging by lessening wrinkles and skin dryness. In one study, women who took collagen supplements for 8 weeks showed an increase in skin elasticity and less skin dryness compared to those who did not take the supplements (5).

Neocell Beauty Bursts contain both Collagen Type 1 & 3 as well as hyaluronic acid which is also  known as “Nature’s Moisturizer.” These beauty nutrients help our skin become firm and smooth. Also, this collagen soft chew contains Vitamin C that is essential to boosting collagen in our skin. Together, these three beauty nutrients (Collagen Type 1 & 3, hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C) work as one to build beautiful skin from the inside out.

Solgar Collagen Hyaluronic Acid Complex and Radiance Beauty Collagen Shots also help minimize the impact of the aging processes, retain collagen, increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility.

Taking collagen supplements may increase the production of other proteins that help structure our skin, including elastin and fibrillin (6, 7). .

 

2.   Helps improve joint health

Collagen supplements can help restore or prevent  the deterioration of cartilage or the rubber-like tissue that protects our joints, thus minimizing the possibilities that we develop osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

One review showed that hydrolyzed collagen  supplements help prevent and even treat osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. It also showed that it helped reduce joint pain.

Neocell Collagen Joint Complex contains glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid that are the key components of supporting and maintaining healthy joint function.

 

 

 

3.   Prevents bone loss

As we get older, our collagen production slows and our bones can become weaker since collagen keeps our bones strong and supported, and this condition can lead to the development of osteoporosis.

Taking collagen supplements may help prevent the declination of bone density and strength. One study revealed that women who took collagen supplements experienced an increase of their bone mineral density by 7% compared with those women who did not consume collagen supplements.  

4.   Improves muscle mass

1-10% of our muscle tissue has collagen. which is an important protein  to keep our muscles strong and functioning properly.

A small study of 53 men who took 15 grams of collagen supplements per day showed an increase in muscle mass and strength than those who took the placebo pill per day. The researchers believed that collagen helped in stimulating the production of the proteins responsible for muscle growth.

5.   Supports heart health

Taking collagen supplements may help reduce the risk of having heart-related conditions since collagen provides structures to our blood vessels or arteries that brings blood from our heart to the rest of our bodies.

Without enough collagen in our body, there is a high risk to develop the condition of atherosclerosis,  a disease characterized by narrowing of our arteries and this disease can lead to heart attack and stroke.

One small study among 30 people where half took 16g of collagen tripeptide for 6 months, showed that there was a significant reduction in their  artery stiffness and in their bad cholesterol levels.
