How the body absorbs collagen - SkinGlo Collagen

Nearly everyone has heard of collagen and its importance for skin health, but few people know how the body absorbs it effectively.

Although collagen has long been used in topical creams and serums to promote skin elasticity and fight wrinkles, it is most effective when taken orally where it is sent directly to your bloodstream.

So, what is collagen?

Collagen is the glue that holds your body together.

Without it, your skin would be dry and thin, your nails would be brittle, your muscles couldn’t grow, and your bones would be extremely fragile.

Our bodies produce collagen throughout our lifetime, but the production slows as we age. SkinGlo helps to support the body’s natural production of collagen at whatever age.

Okay, but why do I need it and how does my body absorb it?

Your skin is made up of 75% collagen, but from the age of 20 the collagen levels in skin reduce by around 1.5% year on year. We have 12% less collagen by age 30 and by the time we get to 50 we will have lost around half of our collagen, which can cause the skin to wrinkle and sag.

The visible effects of this breakdown don’t just appear as wrinkles, fine lines, and dry skin; it can also materialise as physical ailments, as collagen is basically the glue that holds your ligaments, joints, and bones together.

So having plenty of collagen is important because it is the structure your body uses to help skin, muscle and bones spring back, heal and repair.

While you may already know that collagen is good for your skin, you may not know that to really feel the benefit there’s a secret the beauty industry doesn’t want you to know: collagen is much more effective working from the inside out.

In an easy to take liquid supplement, SkinGlo contains hydrolysed marine collagen to help keep skin plump, hydrated and healthy, while essential vitamins support and boost regeneration. And because SkinGlo is developed using liposomal technology, your body absorbs all the goodness at a much higher and faster rate – getting the collagen to where your body can use it.
