How Collagen Rejuvenates Your Facial Skin

Every cell and tissue in your body needs collagen to function at its peak. This substance is the building block of your skin, tendons, bones, and muscle mass. In fact, as much as 30 percent of your body's total protein is collagen.

A significant attribute in providing the structural platform for cells, tissue structures and vital organs has collagen. If collagen did not exist, the system would virtually break into pieces. With its unique nutritional profile, collagen can boost your health on every level. Its benefits go beyond youthful skin and stronger nails.

Even though your body produces collagen on its own, this process slows down as you age. Additionally, certain factors can reduce your collagen levels. Smoking, poor nutrition, sun exposure, and nutrient deficiencies are just a few to mention.

Normal collagen production has been shown to be promoted by several regular skin maintenance products containing collagen; these products may also aid in reducing the negative effects of radicals to collagen and elastin cells because of antioxidant inclusions.

Taking dietary supplements is a great way to ensure that your collagen levels stay within normal limits. In clinical trials, subjects who took collagen peptides experienced significantly increased skin hydration within eight weeks. Other studies have found that taking as little as 2.5 grams of collagen daily for six months can dramatically reduce cellulite.
