Benefits of Collagen

Collagen has become increasingly popular for aesthetics and oral supplementation. There are several benefits, including improving skin health, supporting joint health, promoting muscle mass, and aiding in digestion.

Collagen is a matrix of specific amino acids that provide structure, support, and strength to your skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissues.

What are the symptoms of low collagen?

Low levels could have several symptoms, including sagging skin, wrinkles, joint pain, and weakened hair and nails. Losing collagen in the skin decreases elasticity, causing the structure to weaken, which will increase fine lines and wrinkles. If you lose collagen in your joints, your joints may deteriorate, causing weak and achy joints. It also plays a vital role in the health of our hair and nails; low levels can lead to brittle nails and dry, damaged hair.

Collagen production slows down as we age.

How do you improve collagen levels?

A great way to improve your collagen levels is by taking an oral supplement or a whole-body collagen powder. There may need to be more than oral supplementation because the amino acids (proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline) may struggle with absorption if the proper levels of Vitamin C, Zinc, Copper, and Manganese are absent.

Our Naturopathic Doctors suggest introducing a regenerative IV formulation that includes all of these amino acids and co-factors for optimal absorption for those with a Collagen deficiency.
