What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body.
It’s the main component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments, skin, and muscles (1Trusted Source).
Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones (2Trusted Source).
There are 28 types of collagen, but here are the four most common (2Trusted Source):
Type I: the most common type, found in all connective tissue
Type ll: found in joints and intervertebral discs (the cushions that serve as your spine’s shock absorbers)
Type lll: the main component of reticular fibers, which are found in your skin and blood vessels
Type lV: a component of your kidneys, inner ear, and eye lens
What causes loss of Collagen?
As you age, your collagen production naturally declines. Additionally, collagen becomes fragmented and more loosely distributed.
These changes lead to the characteristic signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dry, sagging skin. The integrity of the collagen found in the skeletal system decreases with age as well, leading to reductions in bone strength.
While collagen loss and damage as you age are inevitable, certain dietary and lifestyle factors can accelerate this process.
For example, smoking cigarettes is known to degrade collagen and cause skin aging, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.
Excessive drinking has also been shown to accelerate skin aging by reducing collagen production and damaging skin repair mechanisms.
Additionally, following a diet high in added sugar and ultra-processed foods can lead to premature aging by contributing to a process called glycation, which reduces collagen turnover and interferes with collagen’s ability to interact with surrounding cells and proteins.
Excessive sun exposure degrades collagen production as well, so wearing sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure can help prevent signs of premature skin aging.
How does Wellness Language's 10,000 mg Hydrolysed Marine Collagen helps you?
One of the most popular uses of collagen supplements is to support skin health. Research suggests that taking collagen supplements in liquid form improves certain aspects of skin health and appearance.
A review of 19 studies that included 1,125 participants (95% women) between the ages of 20 and 70 found that taking hydrolyzed collagen improved skin hydration, elasticity, and wrinkles compared with placebo treatments.
Hydrolyzed collagen is a common type of collagen used in supplements that is created using a process called hydrolysis. This process breaks down the protein into smaller pieces, making it easier for the body to absorb.
A number of studies have shown that taking collagen supplements may improve skin hydration and elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
In addition to improving some aspects of skin health and appearance, collagen supplements may offer a few other benefits.
Does 10,000 mg Hydrolysed Marine Collagen have side effects?
Wellness Language is a leading wellness and beauty brand that follows highest standards of safety to ensure that every product that reaches you is safe to consume with no side effects.
Best time to consume?
While there are plenty of suggestions floating around, really, the best time of day to take your collagen supplement is whenever works best for you. Suppose you like to take it in the morning, great. If you prefer it as a snack during the day, great, or if you want to take it before bed, that’s also great. Either way, you’re boosting your collagen to help your skin, hair, nails, joints, and bones.
