The Beauty Scoop on Collagen: Skin and nails and hair...oh my!

Ahh, spring is here, and what better way to celebrate than with the beauty and warmth that come along with this feel-good season. As the weather starts to warm up, and the flowers begin to bloom, it’s impossible not to “stop and smell the roses,” but let us not forget to stop and acknowledge and appreciate our own regrowth and personal beauty...especially after the last year. 

*socially distanced high-five* 

That being said, there are steps that we can take that may significantly help us to look and feel our best. Whether you are new to the wonderful world of collagen or if you are a collagen connoisseur, the use of collagen peptides or hydrolyzed collagen supplements have many benefits that may improve the overall health and appearance of your skin, nails and hair. 

As always, we like to remind you that there is not a magical fountain of youth - at least not yet, and if we DO find it...we promise to share the secrets with you! In the meantime, let’s just stick to the science and research involving the beauty benefits of collagen protein.

Some might say that collagen’s “claim to fame,” began after studies showed the anti-aging properties that collagen peptides, or hydrolyzed collagen, may have. Collagen is a fibrous, supportive protein that is naturally produced in your body, but as the aging process naturally occurs, collagen production decreases, which may result in visible signs of aging such as sagging skin, fine lines or wrinkles. Although collagen protein is not an overnight fix, studies have shown that taking collagen supplements regularly, can show signs of improved skin within four weeks and even diminish the appearance of wrinkles within 8 weeks.

 

Oh and the beauty benefits of collagen do not stop there! Supplementing your diet with just two daily scoops of our Collagen Hydrolysate or other collagen peptides, may also promote healthier and stronger hair and nails. Collagen is a protein that is packed with amino acids that your body naturally uses to form keratin. And take a guess at what happens to be the structural protein for both hair and nails? Yep, you guessed it...keratin! Increasing keratinized cells may improve the brittleness of nails, while promoting a healthy shine to hair. Hair and nails will feel healthier and nourished, thanks to the collagen and keratin, and may even work together to promote both hair and nail growth!

So whether you are a beauty guru who wants to step up their game or someone who is just curious about the benefits of collagen, we may have something for you. Our Collagen Hydrolysate is a powdered collagen supplement that might just transform the way you feel about yourself. Let’s continue to admire the beauty that comes with spring, but let’s challenge ourselves to include collagen peptides or a collagen supplement into our beauty routine...after all, it’s what's inside that matters, right? So grab your collagen protein supplement, make any of our delicious recipes, and remember that consistency is key!

"I have been taking this supplement for a few years now

I had very painful knees and was suffering with plantar fasciitis on one foot. I initially read about it online and was convinced that I needed to give it a try. Wow, am I happy I did. It has been a life changing supplement for me and I will never be without it. I take two heaping tablespoons every morning in my coffee. It is virtually tasteless and dissolves completely and it doesn't change the consistency of my coffee. Give it a try if you have joint issues. It just might work for you too!"
