You may have heard more and more people talking about collagen and its many benefits, from helping improve skin, hair and nails to how it can help keep your joints supple and healthy.
We love collagen here at TPDC which is why we've included it in both our Collagen+ Beauty Milk and GoHealth Joint protect products. We wanted to give you a quick rundown on how including one of our collagen containing drinks in your diet can help you.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a type of protein which is present in the connective tissues of the body. Collagen is vitally important in certain functions including strengthening your hair, nails and joints along with keeping your skin hydrated and firm.
How does collagen work?
Collagen provides supportive structure for many body tissues including your muscles, ligaments and bones helping to keep them strong and healthy. Collagen also works with another compound known as elastin and together they help keep your tissues strong and firm. This combination of collagen and elastin offers a potent formula for keeping your skin looking firm, flexible and younger looking.
Younger people naturally produce higher levels of collagen but as you age this production slows down, which is why supplementing with a collagen product such as our Beauty Milk or Joint Protect can offer a whole host of benefits.
