A Collagen Supplement is a potent combination of natural substances designed to enhance the body’s production of Collagen. This is the most abundant protein in the body, accounting for approximately 35% of its protein content & as much as 70% of the protein in our skin. It consists of amino acids bound together into fibres to form connective tissue which provides structural support, strength, elasticity & protective coverings throughout the body. It is an essential component of muscle, tendon, bone, teeth, blood vessels, skin, hair, & nails, & is often considered to be the ‘glue’ that holds all of these structures together.
Consequently, Collagen plays a vital role in our health, performance & appearance. Unfortunately, as we age, our body produces less Collagen & that which it does produce is of a lower quality. It is estimated that we begin to lose about 1% of our Collagen per year in our mid-20s & a woman may lose as much as 30% during the first five years of menopause. The visible consequences of this loss of Collagen are sagging skin & wrinkles. Also, wounds heal less quickly. You may experience a loss of flexibility as tendons & ligaments stiffen, & become weaker as muscle mass is lost. Less obvious is the weakening of the cartilage within our joints that accompanies a reduction in Collagen, which is implicated in the development of osteoarthritis.
How do our diet & lifestyle affect our Collagen levels?
In order for the body to produce Collagen we must provide it with right nutrients. This includes consuming sufficient amounts of high-quality protein from sources such as meat, fish & dairy. Or if you consume a plant-based diet, soya, lentils, chick peas, various beans, spirulina, & quinoa can all provide you with the protein you need. Other less obvious but still vital nutrients include:
Vitamin C, a water- soluble vitamin found in large in amounts in citrus fruits, strawberries, red peppers, kale, & broccoli.
The amino acid Proline, which is a constituent of most proteins, especially Collagen. Good sources of which include eggs, meat, dairy products, avocados, wheat germ & oatmeal. Glycine, an amino acid found in large amounts in unsweetened gelatine, soy, turkey, wheat germ cereals, pork skin & chicken skin.
The mineral Copper, which can be found in many foods including raw kale, shiitake mushrooms, spirulina, organ meats such as liver, nuts & seeds, lobster & dark chocolate.
We also need to avoid consuming a diet high in sugar & refined carbohydrates as these can reduce the body’s ability to produce & repair Collagen.
Other lifestyle factors can also affect our Collagen levels. For example, smoking & excessive sun exposure both inhibit Collagen production.
