Collagen myths debunked
Open up any social media platform and we guarantee there will be an influencer raving about collagen. Celebrities who have been known to use collagen supplements include Kourtney Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston and Kelly Ripa, all of whom swear that collagen boosts their energy and gives them glowing skin.
But while collagen has infiltrated social media, it's also experienced its fair share of fake news, bizarre descriptions and sceptical reviews. So at Kollo, we're here to ensure the myths are exposed, debunking fact from fiction so you have all the information you need about collagen and its benefits.
Our bodies produce enough collagen, we don't need any more
MYTH. Our natural collagen levels start to decrease when we reach our mid-20s. When this happens, we start to notice dry, wrinkly skin which is less plump. By ingesting marine collagen directly, your body can soak up and reap the awards of the nutrients collagen provides.
Marine collagen helps with acne
TRUTH. One of the key components found in marine collagen is glycine, an amino acid that acts as an anti-inflammatory which helps reduce irritated skin and calms it down.
Good skin is the only benefit of collagen
MYTH. Not only does collagen contain vitamins B and C, but it can also improve physical performance and help injuries heal at a faster pace. Collagen can also improve bone mineral density as well as helping to increase the absorption of calcium in the gut.
Collagen helps with the menopause
TRUTH. When a woman goes through menopause, estrogen stops being produced by the ovaries. Estrogen is one of the main hormones which stimulates collagen production, so as estrogen levels decrease, so do collagen levels. This can cause changes to skin, hair, bones, and joints. If you add Kollo liquid collagen to your daily routine, it could help you manage these symptoms.
