It seems to me that in 2020 other than toilet paper, face masks and sanitizer, collagen has been among one of the most trendy products on the market. As I started researching a bit more of why this product seemed to be in every influencer's story, I started learning about the benefits of consuming the product.
According to Medical News Today, collagen " is a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body." This protein helps the joints and protects the kidneys as well as the fun side of them which helps our skin, hair and nails.
As we age, collagen starts to decrease in the body and significantly drops after menopause according to my research.
Here are some of the benefits that Medical News Today talks about the use of collagen.
Skin fillers- Collagen has been a very popular product to fill depressions in the skin and even scars. These products are commonly used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Wound healing- Collagen attracts other pieces of collagen to promote the healing of wounds.
Join function- If you are a runner or tend to do high impact workouts, this might be a product that you could check out. Some studies show that collagen protects the joints and the cartilage in your body although certain studies have not found evidence to prove so.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE THE DETAILS ..... LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE
I bought this product on Amazon after I researched about it because I just turned 28, almost 30 and I thought to myself " Okay girlfriend, it is about time to really start taking care of your skin so you don't have to get a bunch of Botox when you are old." I thought it was affordable compared to other brands so I decided to give it a go. Since I was going to put this in several drinks, I opted to go with the unflavored version although they have several flavors that sound pretty yummy (cough cough MATCHA) Now that is definitely the next one I am trying out.
Some people have asked me about the flavor, and let me tell you I cannot taste it in my drink at all! The biggest change that I have seen is that my skin doesn't feel as dry. I am one of those girls that is pretty much married to their moisturizer. I have noticed that change after only using it for a few weeks. I also cut my hair very short in March and with the help of the collagen I am ready to have my full mane again.
I highly recommend this product and I will link them here for you! If you have any questions DM me on Instagram @garment.society :)
