4 Reasons to Drink Collagen
Posted on April 11 2019
Who doesn’t want luxurious hair? We don’t think there’s a person on the planet who would say ‘no’. It’s just one of those things that’s not only nice to have but secretly tells the world that you’re healthy on the inside. As you may already know much of what’s seen on the outside reflects what’s happening inside our bodies. How does that relate to hair?
As we explained in our previous post What is Collagen? there are amino acids in collagen that are essential to healthy DNA and RNA strands. Proline is the amino acid found in collagen that is directly tied to hair, as it is the main component of keratin and hair is made up mainly of keratin1. The human body truly is a great example of cause and effect. If you treat it well, you’ll reap the benefits of doing so. But if you treat it poorly, you’ll also reap those less favorable results.
Collagen is huge when it comes to skin. Drinking it each day can strengthen, improve the elasticity and hydration of your skin. Collagen also works to minimize or slow signs of aging, such as wrinkles. For example, is a study that shows women who drink a beverage mixed with collagen each day for a period of 12 weeks saw an increase in hydration as well as reduced appearance of wrinkles2.
As we get older, the more wear and tear we put on our joints. Naturally, there is collagen found in our joints but the joints wear down. Supplementing with collagen is like spraying WD-40 to a squeaky door hinge. It acts as a lubricant to keep your joints moving the way they should.
You may not realize it, but gut health is tied to your overall health. Why do you think so many people are becoming interested in pre and probiotics? Whatever is happening in your stomach and intestines directly effects how you feel in other ways. Leaky gut is a very real thing. What is leaky gut? It’s when toxins, bacteria, and even bits of food pass through the intestinal wall and end up in your bloodstream. This leads to inflammation and can even escalate into development of an autoimmune disease. If you are dealing with this disorder, collagen can help you manage. Collagen is made up of amino acids and acts as a little patching agent to repair the leak.
