How collagen can fight the effects of alcohol

NW by Natasha Whiting

It is no secret that excessive alcohol consumption can have detrimental effects on your body. With the nation having spent the better part of a year in strict lockdown, many have turned to alcohol to combat the uncertainty and boredom of quarantining. More than 22% of the population of the UK drank more during lockdown, according to Drinkaware. If you are one of them, or you simply want to be healthier, we may have a solution for you - collagen!

Alcohol depletes collagen

The body relies on crucial nutrients and vitamins to produce collagen. Unfortunately, alcohol depletes your body's vitamin levels. Fewer vitamins mean less collagen production. By depriving your body of collagen, alcohol deprives your body of collagen's numerous health benefits, notably the health of your hair and skin. As such, taking Kollo collagen supplements can combat the effects of alcohol intake. However, there is evidence to suggest that increasing your body's collagen levels with Kollo supplements can have benefits beyond skin and hair health.

Collagen can protect your vital organs

Collagen contains high amounts of glycine, which may help in reversing liver damage caused by excessive alcohol intake. Research suggests that glycine may combat liver inflammation caused by alcohol consumption and can even protect your liver from toxins. It's not just your liver that may be at risk. High alcohol consumption can cause high blood pressure, heart disease and heart failure. However, proline, another component of collagen, may help to repair your arteries and reduce blood pressure. By taking Kollo, a multi-award-winning collagen supplement brand, you are directly helping your body along the road to better health.

Why collagen works for you

It is well documented that collagen, as an excellent source of amino acids and vitamins B and C, can improve your skin and hair and enhance your gut health. However, Kollo collagen supplements can also have great benefits to the health of your body’s vital organs, and as lockdown eases, we must focus on helping our bodies recover from many months of bad habits. Shop Kollo’s range of collagen supplements today to find which one works best for you.
