If you are on any form of social media, collagen products would have flooded your screens by now and you are probably wondering why everyone is raving about it so much. Hopefully we can shed some light!
Simply put, collagen is the most common type of protein in your body. It makes up the fibres in your bones, teeth, ligaments, skin, connective tissue, muscles and organs. As we age, our body makes less and less collagen which results in the appearance of wrinkles, stiff and achy joints, decreased mobility, etc. Taking supplements in the form of collagen helps to top up these levels when your body is struggling to produce it naturally.
Collagen has been around for a number of years; mainly for athletes who need joint and muscle support, but recent studies have also highlighted the benefits of healthier looking hair, skin and nails which has made it a major hit in the beauty industry.
Collagen is said to:
- Promote healthy digestion and heal the gut lining
- Create firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin
- Encourage recovery after sport, exercise, injury, and surgery
- Reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation
- Support joint and bone health
- Strengthen and fortify hair, skin, and nails
For the last two years we have been consistently using Mitchell's products and have seen noticeable differences in our hair and skin. Also based in Mount Maunganui, we are stoked to find a product we love so close to home! Our most recent love is their new Marine Collagen that is sustainably sourced.
It is an easy way to top up the collagen your body's missing. Thanks to extra small molecules, marine collagen is extremely well-absorbed, giving the body the support it needs to glow.
Simply scoop, stir and radiate wellness from the inside and out.
