What are the health benefits of collagen?
Collagen is a naturally produced protein in the body that acts as the main component in connective tissues (skin, muscles, ligaments, and tendons). It is vital for your skin’s structure and bone strength. However, sometimes we might require additional collagen supplements. So, what are the health benefits of collagen? We have put together a blog outlining the key health benefits of collagen.
If taken daily for 4-6 weeks, Kollo collagen supplements could help to:
Alleviate some of the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis
Designed to maintain cartilage integrity, collagen could improve some of the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Natural body production of collagen decreases with age but supplements can stimulate tissues to produce collagen again.
Balance gut health and aid digestion
Some health consultants have suggested collagen supplements could be linked to improving symptoms of leaky gut syndrome (intestinal permeability).
Help to boost mood and brain function
Some users of collagen supplements have claimed to have experienced an improved mood and a reduction in symptoms of anxiety.
Aid in muscle recovery after a work-out
Collagen supplements may boost your muscle mass for workouts. A study found that participants who took collagen supplements gained significantly more muscle mass and strength than the control subjects, after a daily exercise programme.
Promotes heart health
Because collagen could provide a structure to your arteries, it could improve elasticity and flexibility which could help to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes by mitigating the narrowing of the arteries.
