- Hair and nails
Collagen protein is what makes your nails and hair strong and healthy. As we age our natural levels of collagen decline, so adding this to your diet will help your body keep providing the right levels to keep your hair regenerating and your nails from becoming brittle.
- Skin health
Collagen will improve your body’s ability to repair and renew cells. This can smooth and firm your skin making it look younger as collagen is integral in skin elasticity which decreases sagging and wrinkles.
- Cellulite and stretch marks
Thinning of the skin and reduced elasticity are key factors in the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. By adding collagen to your diet you will be helping to combat both of these which can lead to a noticeable reduction in their appearance.
- Leaky gut
With the help of the Amino Acids present in collagen your body can start to heal your gut’s lining by regenerating the connective tissues. If you suffer from leaky gut syndrome, collagen could really benefit your gut!
