Boost collagen naturally with a pro-collagen lifestyle

If you are looking at collagen supplements, it’s likely you are looking to boost collagen and reap the benefits. Collagen supplements like Kollo are the foundation of making this happen. But if you want to experience maximum results, you need to take this further. We advocate a pro-collagen lifestyle to experience the best possible results from taking Kollo. This means making a few adjustments to your life to achieve two things:

  1. Slow the rate of destruction of your collagen

  2. Increase the amount of collagen your body produces

These changes don’t have to be drastic. If you are already living a healthy lifestyle, chances are you are doing most things right. But there are some specific things you should focus on that can really amplify the results of taking Kollo. In this post, we will explore them all.

Why should I boost collagen in my body?

Collagen is a key component of your connective tissues. It is fundamental to good health in your skin, hair, nails, muscles, joints, bones, gut, arteries and more. Unfortunately, age and various other factors cause your collagen levels to decline. This leads to all the early signs of ageing and can even contribute to conditions like osteoporosis. We should make an effort to protect our collagen and preserve our youth and good health.

Collagen supplements are one of the best ways to do this. They contain hydrolysed collagen that is easy for the body to absorb. This provides all the fuel your body needs to ramp up collagen production and replace what you are losing as much as possible. The results can be seen in your skin, hair and nails. They can also be felt in your joints and bones. Kollo customers report feeling more energised and generally more positive mentally. The benefits to your wellbeing really are impressive. And if you combine Kollo with a pro-collagen lifestyle, you can amplify those benefits even further.

So what is a pro-collagen lifestyle to boost collagen?

A pro-collagen lifestyle comes down to a list of dos and don’ts. It tells you the behaviours that protect your collagen and help you produce more. And it tells you the things that damage your collagen and slow collagen production. It involves the following:

  • Diet

  • Habits

  • Activity levels

  • Sleep

  • Environment

Let’s look at these things in a bit more detail.

Diet

We have written before about a pro-collagen diet. Kollo is a food supplement, meaning it exists to supplement your diet. If you eat foods that contain all the nutrients your body needs for optimal health, the true power of Kollo is unleashed. Let us give you the consistent dosage of collagen fuel – your food can supply what you need to make use of that fuel.

A pro-collagen diet is packed with:

  • B vitamins

  • Vitamin C

  • Copper

  • Zinc

  • Protein

  • Chlorophyll

  • Antioxidants

You should aim to get these nutrients from as many different food types as possible. It’s also important to drink lots of water every day.

Equally important is the need to avoid certain things in your diet. Too much refined sugar and carbohydrates can damage your collagen. They can also slow the rate of absorption of nutrients by your body. Try to also avoid drinking too much alcohol or taking any other intoxicants.

Habits

The choices you make in your life have consequences. This is true in many areas of your health, and your collagen is one of them. There are good habits and bad habits you can pursue. If you want to engage in a pro-collagen lifestyle, you need to implement the good and eliminate the bad to boost collagen.

Good habits for your collagen include:

  • Taking your collagen supplement – try to get into the routine of doing this every day.

  • Good skincare – exfoliate, cleanse and moisturise your skin to preserve your collagen.

  • Managing stress – the stress hormone cortisol can damage your collagen. Conversely, hormones like endorphins and oxytocin can be helpful.

Bad habits for your collagen include:

  • Smoking – this is bad for so many things and collagen is one of them.

  • Excessive sun exposure – sunlight damages your collagen. Always wear sunscreen and avoid intense sunshine.

  • Eating junk food – we have looked at the importance of diet. If you are filling your body with saturated fats, sugar, salt and processed foods, your collagen will suffer.

Changing one’s habits can be hard. But making small, gradual changes can make it easier. Every positive change is a step in the right direction. You should aim to make small, sustainable changes over time. This is how you form new habits that will improve your life.

Activity levels

The amount of exercise you get is fundamental to your collagen. It strengthens muscles, joints and bones. It improves your circulation and boosts your metabolism. And it triggers the release of good hormones that are helpful in many ways.

If you live a sedentary lifestyle, your health will suffer. Nutrients won’t reach the places they need to be. The quality of your connective tissues will degrade. You will feel less energised and many of your bodily functions won’t work as well as they should. Bone and muscle tissue diminishes, joints become stiff and inflamed. In short, you will look and feel older than you are.

Cardiovascular exercise is great because it burns fat and increases circulation. It can be ideal after eating a nutritious meal as it can move those nutrients around the body at a faster rate. Try a vigorous walk or go running or cycling after a healthy meal. This type of exercise should be combined with weight-bearing exercise too. Lifting weights helps build muscle and strengthen bones and joints. Getting 3+ hours of exercise every week can go a long way to boost collagen.

Sleep

When you sleep, the blood flow around your skin increases. This enables the skin to repair damage from UV light. It also gives it time to rebuild its collagen. In fact, most collagen synthesis happens when you are asleep. It is recommended to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night to avoid premature signs of ageing in your skin. And these signs of ageing can also extend to your joints, bones and more.

The importance of sleep for overall health is well-documented. And it is essential when you are trying to boost collagen. Many Kollo customers have said their sleep improved when they started taking the supplement. If you find it hard to sleep well, you could try other things to improve your sleep, like:

  • Going to be earlier

  • Waking up earlier

  • Avoiding screen time in the last hour before bed

  • Winding down with a bath or a soothing drink

  • Avoiding caffeine in the evening

Environment

Air pollution is bad news for your collagen. Unfortunately, 90% of us are breathing polluted air. The damage it does to the ozone layer means we are all being exposed to more UV radiation from the sun. All of this amounts to a higher burden of oxidative stress, leading to worse collagen health. Naturally, this is detrimental to our efforts to boost collagen.

A pro-collagen lifestyle calls for you to try to minimise the air pollution you experience. Living in the city can be harmful so you should avoid city centres wherever possible. Of course, this is not possible for everyone. So you need to look for ways to mitigate your exposure to 21st century problems like air pollution, heavy metals, pesticides and UV radiation. This study explores some solutions to the problems.

Boost collagen with Kollo and a pro-collagen lifestyle

Now you are familiar with what it takes to live a pro-collagen lifestyle. It doesn’t have to be a major upheaval of your life. The changes are not huge and you can take them one at a time. A good starting point is to begin taking Kollo.
