Collagen is an insoluble, fibrous protein consisting of amino acids. It helps to protect our skin by filtering out environmental toxins. Collagen is well known for quickly acting to strengthen our hair, skin and nails. As we age our collagen production slows down and we need more. Therefore it is beneficial add a collagen powder to your daily schedule.
Vitamin C plays a key role when taking a collagen powder.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that our bodies cannot produce. It is acquired through diet. Vitamin C slows ageing and is an important part of the natural process of collagen production. It helps stabilize collagen mRNA (messenger RNA) that increases the collagen protein synthesis to repair our damaged skin. Vitamin C also boosts our immune system and helps to support immunity, brain function, leaky gut and cardiovascular health just to name a few.
It seems logical that a diet rich in fruits and veggies should be enough vitamin C. But if you are supplementing your diet with collagen, studies show that too little vitamin C will slow down or diminish collagen production entirely – thus making your efforts futile.
