What is Collagen Powder and does it Really work?
Author: Mandy Harris
Collagen powder is newest trend in the beauty community right now. It claims to improve your skin elasticity, helps your joints as well as your muscles and contributes to protecting your body overall. It is the new buzzword on everyone’s mouths and is now in every beauty product. I’ve seen it in creams, toners, face masks and even beverages. Last year we’ve seen Charcoal powder become the must have beauty craze but it didn’t have the stamina that collagen proves to have. Collagen has always been a crucial component of anti aging but now more people have become easily impressed by the amount of popularity and advancement it has. It is generally made from animal bones and other bi-products and it unfortunately doesn’t have a vegan friendly alternative. Since it is a fine powder (and usually flavourless) you can put it in absolutely anything. Even if you are a busy working woman with children you can reap the benefits of collagen.
I put collagen powder in my coffee every morning or I put it in smoothies. There are also collagen pills you can take for fast and easy consumption. I believe that collagen powder really works because I’ve seen the results. I’ve been taking collagen for a couple of months now and my skin is clearer and more radiant and my body aches that come with aging have significantly decreased. I also use collagen facial masks as well as creams and toners for the additional boost. Collagen is a vital protein in your body and hides in your bones, blood and muscles.
Adding an extra boost of collagen as a supplement is essential as we continue to age. Even though we produce collagen everyday, when you reach a specific age, your body loses its natural boost of the good stuff. Collagen powder is the safer, non-abrasive alternative to fillers and Botox and that’s why I was very interested in trying this method. Losing a significant amount of collagen can contribute to faster aging and diminishing of your bones and muscles. I always recommend collagen to my family and friends because I actually see and feel a difference in my body.
Anyone can benefit from taking collagen, even men! Collagen production in men is just as important as woman. Collagen actually helps with rebuilding the muscles after you work out and helps you feel full which aids in the process of losing weight. Naturally there is a good amount of protein in collagen powders because they are made from protein rich ingredients. I can’t see one downside of taking collagen powder and will continue to suggest it to everyone I come across. I suggest Vital Proteins Pure Collagen Powder or any brand that includes only pure collagen. I’ve been taking it for months now and I don’t think I will stop. I am a big lover of skincare and always looking for the next thing to satisfy my urge and this super powder is my go to in my beauty regimen.
