Collagen, Why You Need It!
Do you want to improve skin elasticity, hydration and reduce fine line and
wrinkles, then Collagen is for you! By taking Collagen Supplements or eating collagen rich foods will increase your collagen levels in as little as 8 weeks. Taking hydrolyzed collagen (also known as collagen peptides) by mouth, either in pill or powder form, is one of the easiest ways to boost your collagen stores. Eating foods rich in collagen include bone broth, egg yolks and organ meats is also another way.
Is has been shown that after age 25 that more collagen is actually broken down in the body than what is being made, so fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. Fighting sign of aging with Vitamin C used topically and in pill form is also another valuable age fighting tool. Vitamin C works as a building block to increase collagen within the body especially when paired with micro-needling to stimulate micro-tissue injuries to increase the production of collagen within the treated area by increasing cellular turnover.
When exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) light (sunlight or tanning beds) and tobacco products, these activate enzymes within the body that degrade and reduce collagen fibers. A reduction in collagen fibers causes increased signs of aging including wrinkles and sagging of skin.
