Collagen Supplements for Health Beauty and Fitness

IMG_2651.JPGFor Many Years the Japanese have been taking Collagen Supplements to enhance their youthfulness, they discovered that topically applied collagen does little for the skin but taking it orally has helped them achieve an defining appearance.
It takes approximately 3 months to see the benefits from taking collagen, I have been taking my collagen for 4 months and definitely see an improvement in the overall appearance of my skin hair and nails. My supplement of choice is by Natures Bounty and can be found at Walmart and Shoppers drug mart, they also have a Hair, Skin and Nails in gummy formula for easy intake. The following are reasons you should consider adding collagen supplements to your daily beauty regime.

It strengthens bones, joints and cartilage. It reduces cellulite.
It helps smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by tightening the skin and improving elasticity.
It promotes healthier skin including working on those stubborn stretch marks
It helps with gut health and has been known to help manage IBS symptoms.
It aids in taking down acne swelling because it works as an anti-inflammatory.
It helps your hair grow thicker, longer and stronger.
It helps with missing amino acids which help regulate hormones.
It is pure protein I like to take it after I work out to help build muscles.
High in glycine amino acid it helps you with sleep and stress relief.
Good for metabolism because it works at maintaining thyroid health.
If you have any injuries especially bruises or cuts collagen can help you heal faster.
Helps weak nails grow harder.

 

Warning: taking supplements can be dangerous especially if the supplements are not from a reliable source as they could contain contaminants and are not always FDA regulated. The opinions in this post are mine personally if you have any questions or concerns about collagen supplements please address them with your physician. Vegans take note that collagen is usually derived from animal proteins.
