While many are contemplating new diets and healthy resolutions for 2019, I am personally recommending you take some time to take a look at your supplements. If you are not taking any as of now, think twice. While many formulas combine all the recommended vitamins and minerals, they lack on one important protein that should be consumed by all of us, collagen.
Collagen can be somewhat difficult to understand. It is more than an ingredient found in women’s skincare. Found in the skin, hair, nails, connective tissue, blood vessels, and organs it is certainly the most abundant protein in your body. It is considered the “glue” that holds the body together. Ironically, the word collagen comes from the Greek word “kola” meaning glue. I personally consider that beauty and health should come from within. Therefore, taking vitamins and supplements could be beneficial when consumed instead of using on topical solutions or serums.
Why take a collagen supplement? Unfortunately, our bodies ability to produce collagen naturally slows down as we age. Aging and other factors such as; sun exposure, smoking, sugar consumption, air pollution and inadequate diet are to blame. Recent studies have found that supplemental collagen can be beneficial for repair and support of hair, nails, digestive tract health, liver functions, metabolism and many more.
Why is hydrolyzed collagen a good option? Hydrolyzed means that amino acids chains have already been broken down to easiest and quickest form of absorption. In other words, the body will put them to use rapidly to where it needs the extra “boost” without having to process or digest them. Don’t make your body work extra… be kind to it.
When can you take it? There is no conclusive evidence that taking collagen at a specific time of the day provides the best results. Some consider that taking collagenat night gives the body time to process it while sleeping. Others suggest that taking it on an empty stomach will maximize absorption. Another group of individuals consider that consuming collagen after workout is a great alternative to substitute protein shakes. Bottom line is that as long as you take it daily you will be able to benefit from it.
