Collagen Powder

Collagen is a fibrous protein, naturally produced within the body of living human and animal beings. Some people refer to it as the  ‘glue’ that holds everything in the human body together. The collagen structure in the human body weakens with increasing age due to slowing production of the protein. The good news however is that the protein can be consumed with meals and drinks with a bovine substitute. The unique amino acid profile increases the body’s ability to restore these structures which have weakened over time.  A consistent intake of the protein leads to the restoration process taking place in the human body. Some of the benefits of collagen intake is  known to include:

  • Increased skin collagen density and skin hydration
  • Restore the elasticity of the skin
  • Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Support and repair the body’s digestive tract
  • Strengthen hair, nails and teeth
  • Promote new hair growth
  • Reduce joint inflammation
  • Provide pain relief for arthritic patients
  • Accelerate injury recovery time
  • Assist in the healing of acne and scars

Collagen can be consumed through liquid smoothies, mixing it with a cup of coffee, enjoyed with a glass of juice or mixed into your daily breakfast mixes such as muesli and yogurt. It is however recommended that the powder is completely dissolved before intake.
