Confused about collagen? Let’s talk…

Are you finding more wrinkles and dull skin when you look into the mirror?

Well, this may be caused by a protein deficiency of collagen in the body. Collagen provides hydration and elasticity to your skin, strengthens connective tissue of muscles, and provides an overall improvement of bone structure. Although considered the most abundant protein in the body, it can begin diminishing at an early time period and have a major contribution to the declining age process. 

However, there may be some preventative steps towards targeting the body’s lower collagen production levels. 

The protection of your skin’s natural collagen begins with a few simple steps:

  • Wearing sunscreen (preferably with a higher SPF content) daily to prevent collagen breakdown from ultraviolet light
  • Monitoring daily food intake to incorporate fruits, vegetables, and eating other food high in antioxidants
  • Updating your skincare routine to include some anti-aging beauty products with both retinol and tretinoin have been proven to increase collagen formation, along with using a Vitamin C serum to help reverse inflammation

The production of other proteins, such as elastin and fibrillin, can also help structure blood flow to the skin and visibly reduce the wrinkle-causing effects from the natural-aging process. Collagen is the main component of your body’s “building blocks” in giving your skin the plump, youthful appearance. Scientifically proven for women, there can be up to a 30% loss of collagen production within the first 5 years of menopause. Due to the aging properties of collagen loss, it is important to stay mindful of the statistical facts and have a better understanding of how to combat this protein! Many women and men have incorporated daily vitamin, supplements, and beauty regimens to help protect their skin.

Are you feeling an increase of joint pain or muscle weakness? 

Collagen is a necessary protein regarding properly functioning joints, preventing age-related muscle mass loss, and strengthening bone structure. The increase of collagen levels has been suggested to promote the muscular growth and synthesis of other proteins, such as creatine, through body movement and daily exercise. Along with the additional benefits of relieving joint pain, decreasing the risk of developing osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, protecting against other degenerative physical disorders, and reducing inflammation. Collagen helps to maintain the accumulation of cartilage and formation of “rubber-like” tissue surrounding the body’s joints, which in turn, allows the prevention of bone density deterioration leading to the high risk of fractures.

Collagen has been associated with various health benefits and can provide an overall improvement to your lifestyle. Although the protein is naturally produced within the body, an increase of collagen levels will help with alleviating joint pain, strengthening bone structure, and slowing down the aging process.
