Top five benefits of collagen

You’ve heard it said by health experts, beauty gurus, and possibly even your best friend. Collagen is the new buzzword on everyone’s lips, and it can now be found in just about everything from creams and cosmetics, to powders and pills. And the truth is, this may be one instance where the hype is actually warranted.

As the most abundant protein in the body,  is available in your muscles, skin, blood, bones, cartilage, and ligaments. You may want to consider squeezing in an extra serving of this vital protein for several reasons, as collagen is a building block that:

  • promotes skin elasticity
  • holds together your bones and muscles
  • protects your organs
  • provides structure to joints and tendons

The good news is that your body produces collagen on a regular basis. But, it does slow down with age.

Other lifestyle habits that can bring collagen production to a screeching halt include smoking, sun exposure, and an unhealthy diet. Some health conditions may also deplete your collagen storage. And without this important building block, you may start to see wrinkles and sagging skin, or even experience joint pain.

Keep reading to discover five specific benefits you may experience if you take the time to up your collagen consumption.

1. May ease joint pain

As your cartilage weakens and deteriorates with age, you may start to feel stiff, achy joints. It’s possible that upping your collagen intake may help reduce joint pain and alleviate symptoms of arthritis .

In a 2009 study , participants took a type II collagen supplement made from chicken necks for 90 days. Results showed that osteoarthritis symptoms decreased by 40 percent while the severity of symptoms dropped by an impressive 33 percent.

In an older study in 1993 with the same collagen supplement, participants with severe rheumatic disease saw a reduced number of swollen and tender joints 4 of 60 participants also experienced complete remission. This supplement was undenatured, meaning that the amino acids weren’t broken down as a result of processing and exposure to high heat.

2. May reverse skin aging

One of the most well known benefits of collagen is its ability to promote glowing, vibrant skin. This essential protein provides elasticity to the skin, helping it to appear more youthful and healthy.

But as you get older and collagen production declines, fine lines, loose skin, and dryness can occur. So what happens if you increase your collagen intake with supplements?

A study published randomly chose 46 of 69 women, ages 35 to 55 years old, to take a collagen hydrolyses supplement. The rest of the group took a placebo. The women who took the collagen showed an improvement in skin elasticity within four weeks.

The same manufacturer also conducted another study in 2014 with the same supplement, which significantly reduced wrinkles after just eight weeks.

3. Helps build muscle and burn fat

Collagen is a major component of muscle tissue, so it should come as no surprise that it can have a big impact when it comes to building muscle mass. Plus, collagen also contains a concentrated amount of glycine, an amino acid involved in the synthesis of creatine This can provide source muscles with the fuel needed to power through your workout.

So what happens when you add collagen to your workout routine?

There’s not much research on collagen and exercise, but a study looked at collagen supplements in 53 older males with sarcopenia, a condition where you lose muscle mass due to aging. After 12 weeks, those who took supplements along with resistance training saw an increase in fat loss and muscle strength more than the placebo group.

4. May reduce cellulite

Besides keeping your skin healthy and glowing, collagen may also help improve the appearance of stubborn cellulite. cellulite is when the layer of fat under the skin pushes up against the connective tissue, creating a dimpled or lumpy appearance on the skin.

Another study by manufacturers to see what type I collagen would do for cellulite. They randomly assigned 105 women, ages 24 to 50, to take collagen peptides for six months. Those who did demonstrated a clear improvement in skin texture and waviness.

While it seems promising, more studies are needed to confirm if collagen helps reduce cellulite appearance. A 2015 review found that only acoustic wave therapy had potential benefit for treating cellulite, however, collagen may not have been included.

But remember, cellulite is incredibly common an estimated 80 per cent have it. It’s a natural part of aging and skin formation and not a cause for concern.

5. May improve digestive health

Collagen is in the gut’s connective tissue and can help support and strengthen the protective lining of your digestive tract. This is critically important because alterations in the barrier function of your intestine, also known as leaky gut syndrome, can allow particles to the blood This may result in inflammation.

In fact, an older study in 2003 looked at 170 individuals with inflammatory bowel disease and found that they were more likely to have lower levels of serum collagen.

So the current theory is that by increasing your intake of collagen, you could help build up the tissues that line your gastrointestinal tract and promote gut health. However, current research is limited on the direct effects of collagen supplementation on the digestive system.

Review: Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment

A long time ago I wanted to do a review of a product of this brand. And here it is. After 4 weeks trying Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment, I give you my sincere opinion.

eye5.jpg

Name: Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment.

Description: eye contour cream whose mission is to combat the 4 signs of aging: reduce the depth of wrinkles, soften and unify the tone of the skin, reaffirm and moisturize and return elasticity around that area.

Principal Ingredients: with bark of Anogeissus tree.

Aroma: slightly perfumed, with a plant aroma, but soft.

Texture: it is very peculiar, because it looks like a heavier cream, but on contact with the finger, it dissolves into a light gel.

Finish: natural light.

Duration: the sensation of hydration lasts about 8 hours. It is not that I feel the contour dry after that time, but that fitness is lost a little.

I like it: it feels very soft on the skin and hydrates it immediately. After 4 weeks of use I feel a little more firm and elastic the area around the eyes. Regarding the effect of filling in wrinkles or reducing lines, I could not observe it (I do not have them that marked), but as in all anti-aging products, we must have faith in this sense; if it meets other expectations, the texture accommodates you, and you are willing to pay the price, then it is a perfect fit 🙂

I make the reach that it takes slightly longer to absorb, so if you’re a hustler, you have to take a little time.

I do not like it: I find it hard to think of something negative, maybe some will think about the price. It is not a cheap cream, but for the benefits it promises (some more immediate and others long term), I think it’s worth it if you care to take care of that area of the face completely.

I recommend it: I think Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment is for women and men with mixed dry eye contour, who want to achieve lasting hydration, luminosity and more elastic skin, in addition to seeking an anti-aging treatment.

I do not recommend it: those with the most fatty contour, it takes a while to absorb. To those who look for a basic eye contour cream, which only moisturizes and illuminates, for example.

If you have an Origins favorite, happy if you to share it in the comments!
