Your body has been making its own Collagen since the day you were born. It supports all the various ‘structures’ of your body, including your skin, hair, nails, bones, joints, ligaments and cartilage (even your teeth!).
From age 25 your natural collagen production starts to decline. By age 40 it may have reduced by as much as 25%. And by age 60+ you might have lost as much as 50%. This helps explain wrinkles and saggy skin, weak nails, thinning hair and sore joints as you get older.
BUT there is something that you can do (phew!). Marine Collagen Supplements are fast becoming the ‘go-to’ when it comes to ageing. So how can you expect to benefit from Marine Collagen?
Collagen doesn't just mask the signs of ageing; it repairs the damage by supplementing our body’s own declined collagen levels. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and prevents further formation. It also increases the skin’s ability to hydrate, adding suppleness and ‘plumping’.
We already know Marine Collagen reduces wrinkles and yields healthy, younger-looking skin. But did you know that it can also promote great skin health overall? It supports clearer skin and has been proven to help reduce acne symptoms. It can also be helpful with conditions like Rosacea and some forms of Dermatitis and Eczema.
DIGESTIVE HEALTH & LEAKY GUT
Marine Collagen supplements can support your body in managing the health of your digestive tract and conditions like Leaky Gut. Marine Collagen peptides are used by your digestive system to strengthen and repair the tissues that allow certain digestive conditions and leaky gut to occur.
JOINTS, BONE HEALTH & HEALING
Marine Collagen has been proven in studies since 2013, to stimulate natural collagen production in your body. This boost helps increase bone density, which is essential for healing broken bones and replacing bone mass lost to ageing. Given that collagen makes up about 30 % of all human bones, this makes absolute sense!
Collagen makes up most of your skin and not just the epidermis (or top layer). It helps wound healing supporting reduction of excessive inflammation around cuts and wounds. Collagen is then required by your body in all of the following stages of wound repair.
HAIR & NAILS
Often weakened dramatically through age, hair can become thin, and nails brittle or flaky. Marine Collagen supplements can help you achieve significant improvements in the condition of both your nails and your hair!
It's clear that these 6 benefits alone can have a hugely positive impact on your health, and your confidence and wellbeing as a whole. At Birch & Wilde, we LOVE Marine Collagen supplements and never miss a day. So, if your confidence needs a little boost – this is a fantastic way to do it!
