What’s The Deal About Collagen?

Collagen is a protein that acts like a glue and provides structure to the body, Collagen is the second most abundant substance in our body (just after water), and is a building block of the tissues.

Also hair, nails and cartilage are primarily made of Collagen as well.

Do we need a Collagen Supplement?

After the age of 25, we start producing 1.5% less Collagen every year So at age of 40, we have lost 25% of our Collagen production. And at 60, production falls by 50%.

How to choose a good Collagen Supplement?

The Main source of Collagen comes from the hides of cows. So it should say:

  • Grass fed
  • Free range
  • Free of antibiotics and hormones
  • Also it should have the following
  • 1- Gluten-free
  • 2- Highly bioavailable – 90% absorption rate
  • 3- Ion exchange filtered, which means virtually all impurities have been removed
  • 4 – It should contain 90% type I & III Collagen if you want the collagen supplement to work for your skin.
  • 5- Hydrolyzed Collagen with High Bioavailability: The problem with Collagen molecules is that in its native state they are simply too large for our body to absorb efficiently unless they’ve been hydrolyzed.

  • Clinical studies show these Collagen Peptides get absorbed in the bloodstream, penetrate and remain in the dermis, and trigger Collagen production in the skin.

  • 6- The concentration of hydrolyzed Collagen per serving (minimum 10,000mg) if you want to see visible results. For younger adults or for maintenance, a lower daily concentration between 2,500mg - 5,000mg is sufficient
  • 7- It should contain Vitamin C it has an essential role in the synthesis of Collagen.
