Everything you need to know about Collagen

Everything you need to know about Collagen

October 21, 2019

Hi Dolls!
Recently we noticed a few of our girlfriends, are including collagen powder into their diets and swear by the magic of the benefits...
we quickly learned that this is a popular trend in the wellness community. So we decided to investigate whether to hop on the bandwagon or to skip this growing trend.

We asked the experts and decided to share the outcome. The benefits are just too good to pass up on, keep reading to learn about the hype of the collagen trend.

What is collagen ?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in skin, making up an impressive 75-80% of the organ, says New York City-based dermatologist Debra Jaliman, MD. Along with elastic tissue, collagen is found in the dermis, or middle layer, of skin that gives it its fullness and plumpness.


Does it really help our joint health?


Yes, collagen allows your joints, tendons and ligaments to glide and move easily.  With age, and as your collagen production depletes, your joints can become stiff, swollen and painful, even causing a lack of mobility. Collagen contains the amino acids glycine and proline, which help to support joint mobility and a healthy inflammatory response.

Does it help you lose weight?

In short collagen aids with weight loos but is not a magic solution. With that being said it does help you manage your weight. Glycine, the amino acid mentioned above, forms muscle by converting glucose into energy. Having more lean muscle tissue gives your metabolism a boost because muscle burns more calories than fat. Essentially, collagen helps to turn your body into a fat-burning machine, even when you’re at rest. There is some evidence to also suggest that supplemental collagen may support a feeling of fullness after you eat.

Does it help with aging and the general appearance of your skin?

This is collagens biggest benefit...
Collagen is a major component of your skin, it plays a role in strengthening skin. As you age, your body produces less collagen, leading to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. However, there have been several studies that show that collagen peptides or supplements containing collagen may help slow the aging of your skin. When skin loses its elasticity and becomes thin, cellulite becomes more obvious. Collagen can also help to increase moisture retention, boost elasticity, and helps smooth out that dimpled appearance, as well as those fine lines.

So with all our research we are hoping on the Collagen bandwagon...
