If you’re reading this, you are probably already aware that a collagen supplement such as our SkinGlo Collagen is excellent for your skin, helping to prevent ageing and increasing hydration. However, did you know that there is a range of other benefits to taking collagen supplements? Here are a few of the big ones.
Many people find that their hair begins to grow more quickly when taking collagen and looks healthier and becomes more robust. Some men have even said that hair grew back in places where it had previously been lost. Collagen may also prevent greying. These benefits are thanks to the amino acids in collagen, which can help build hair proteins.
Collagen is a significant part of nail composition, and supplementing can help your nails become stronger, less brittle and grow more quickly.
Your bones are mostly made up of collagen, so as you age, your collagen levels decline, impacting your bones, not just your skin. Taking a collagen supplement can help to slow deterioration and possibly improve bone density.
Relive Joint Pain
Studies have shown that taking a collagen supplement may reduce joint pain and improve symptoms of osteoarthritis. Some believe that supplementing with collagen may encourage your tissues to make more collagen.
Collagen supplements have high protein content. For example, each of our SkinGlo sachets contains 8g of collagen. The benefits of protein are well publicised and include increasing muscle mass and strength, lowering blood pressure and reducing hunger levels.
Good for the Heart
The structure of your arteries is built using collagen. When using collagen supplements, you can help your arteries stay strong, limiting the likelihood of atherosclerosis, which can lead to strokes and heart attacks.
