Over the past couple of days, I've started taking collagen.
Not injections but chewables!
Who knew these existed??
There are so many benefits of taking collagen especially as you get older. Unfortunately, as we get older our body doesn't produce the the amount of collagen we need to help in our body's repair process. Here are major benefits of taking collagen:
1. Improves Circulation
Collagen can strengthen blood vessels and improve their elasticity.
2. Helps Heal and Repair Injuries
Collagen is needed to repair and rebuild connective tissue to encourage strong muscles, skin and joints. Collagen also strengthens the structure of bones, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. Supplementing with collagen can encourage muscle mass to regenerate and helps people recover from sports-related injuries faster.
3. Relieves Arthritis Pain
Collagen may help increase your joint mobility and reduce arthritis pain by reducing damage to joints and stimulating reductions in joint-pain, tenderness and swelling.
Collagen promotes your body to rebuild and repair the fibers that cause cellulite and wrinkles to appear. As collagen depletes, wrinkles and lines form in those places where the skin moves the most- such as joints, forehead and lips.
5. Improve Health of Hair
Collagen comes in capsule, chewable and power form.
As with any supplements, check with your doctor before starting.
