Collagen Supplement Why take it ?
Taking collagen is associated with a number of health benefits and very few known risks
Collagen is a major component of your skin. It plays a role in strengthening skin, providing elasticity and hydration. As you age, your body produces less collagen, leading to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. Studies prove that a collagen supplement can increase skin hydration, reduce wrinkles & Has been shown to stimulate your body to produce collagen on its own !!!
Collagen helps maintain the integrity of your cartilage, in joints . As collagen in our bodies decreases as we get older, we are at risk of developing degenerative joint disorders like osteoarthritis .Some studies show that supplemented collagen may accumulate in cartilage and stimulate your tissues to make collagen. This would lower inflammation, better support of your joints, reduce pain, And improve symptoms of osteoarthritis!
Your bones are made mostly of collagen, which gives them structure and keeps them strong .So when the collagen in your body deteriorates as you age, so does your bone mass which can lead to things like osteoporosis, Studies have shown that taking collagen supplements can help stop the bone breakdown .
My personal experience using BeautyFit® Collagen Powder
I have suffered with psoriasis flare ups for the last few years some have been horrific covering my entire body and leaving me feeling self conscious about going out in public, others easier to hide just ugly and uncomfortable . I know that Psoriasis, like many other skin conditions, is associated with increased inflammation and the immune system and must be managed from diet and lifestyle. However Keeping a mostly clean diet and staying in good health had not seemed to be enough, and I had just learnt to accept that I would always have the condition on my skin in some capacity.
When I started taking Beautyfit® hydrolyzed collagen supplement I actually had no idea that it would have any impact on my psoriasis at all then suddenly after a matter of weeks using it my skin cleared up the itchiness stopped and I am now for the first time in many years confident to show my skin without It’s red, Itchy & dry unsightly patches. Psoriasis is not curable. However with good health and the right supplements I now know that it is manageable which is an exciting discovery for me.
Collagen is made up of many powerful amino acids that can play a role in minimizing the symptoms of psoriasis. One of the most abundant amino acids found in collagen is glycine, it is known for making a powerful antioxidant and glutathione. This antioxidant helps prevent cell damage caused by free radicals.
So I Believe that Beautyfit® hydrolyzed collagen is a great addition to my daily Supplement routine with so many benefits and no known negative side-effects .
If you wanting healthier skin joints and bones I recommend giving this a try !
