What are the benefits of Collagen and what age should you start taking it?
As you enter the colder period of the year, do you notice that your skin is dry, your hair is thinner and falls out more, and your nails are more prone to breaking? Have you ever wondered why is that so? What does your body lack and what should you consume to strengthen your hair, nails and skin?
Behind this "breakdown", there is one word - collagen.
It is an incredibly important and most abundant protein in your body, accounting for about one-third of its protein composition.
What is collagen?
Collagen is one of the main component of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth. You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
When does the body start losing collagen?
The body produces collagen all its life, but production slows down with age (it slows down quickly if you have some of these bad habits: eat excessive amounts of sugar, smoke and are too exposed to the sun/solarium), so the body needs help. Collagen levels naturally begin to decline in the twenties and continue to decline by about 1% each year. Ideally, you should start acting as early as your twenties, but it’s never too late for good habits. Even when you already have visible signs of aging (wrinkles, thinner hair...), collagen can help you slow down the aging process, to look younger than your peers, and to feel better.
The most important benefits of consuming collagen:
Collagen is a major component of your skin. It plays a role in strengthening skin, plus may benefit elasticity and hydration. As you age, your body produces less collagen, leading to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. If you combine the intake of collagen with vitamin C, you will further increase the elasticity and hydration of the skin, especially at the beginning of the colder part of the year when it is necessary to raise immunity.
Taking collagen supplements stimulate collagen synthesis in the body. This may help reduce inflammation and promote pain relief among people with joint disorders like osteoarthritis.
Your bones are made mostly of collagen, which gives them structure and helps keep them strong. Just as the collagen in your body deteriorates as you age, so does bone mass. This may lead to conditions like osteoporosis, which is characterized by low bone density and linked to a higher risk of bone fractures. Consuming collagen supplements may help reduce those risks.
Collagen contributes to the strengthening of hair and nails, which also weaken with age, the hair thins and you may notice that you lose it more, while your nails become thinner, more prone to flaking and breaking.
