Benefits of Collagen

Collagen allows us to create wellness from the inside out. Collagen is an essential protein that serves as a natural building block within out bodies. It basically holds us all together and is found in our bones, muscles, skin, and tendons, adding strength and structure.  

One of the most well known benefits of collagen is its ability to promote glowing, vibrant and strong skin; this is because approximately 70% of the protein in our skin is collagen. Collagen also contributes to the maintenance of healthy hair growth and stronger nails.  

As collagen is found in our connective tissue, including our gut, it can be very beneficial for people hoping to improve their digestive health to reduce symptoms such as bloating. Improving your gut health can simultaneously improve your skins appearance from the inside out. 

Collagen has also been studied for its role in balancing hormones and increasing energy production. 

Our Pick 

Collagen Beauty – Nutra Organics 

I love Nutra Organics Collagen Beauty Powder as it contains vitamin C and zinc which both aid the bodies ability to absorb the collagen you are ingesting while also contributing to normal collagen formation within the body. Vitamin C & Zinc also strengthens and supports a healthy immune function. 

Collagen Beauty is so versatile and as it is flavourless it can be easily implemented into your daily routine. I bake with it by adding it to protein balls and banana bread; I also love adding it to soups and my morning smoothie. You can even add it to your morning tea or coffee!
