How effective are collagen supplements for skin health?

Collagen is one of the most prevalent types of protein in the body. Originating from the Greek word Kólla, meaning glue, collagen helps to bind skin cells together and is a component of around 75% of our skin. As we age, collagen production starts to diminish, and, in particular, according to Cedars Sinai, collagen and menopause are inextricably linked. Within the first five years of menopause, it's thought that women lose up to about 30% of collagen production. Reduced levels of collagen can cause the skin to sag and increase wrinkles, so it's no wonder that more and more people turn to collagen supplements to combat the signs of skin ageing. 

Collagen health for skin

Increasing evidence suggests that collagen supplements can play a vital role in supporting skin elasticity and hydration while reducing the visible signs of wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin and sagging.

According to Healthline, several studies show that taking up to 10G of marine collagen daily led to improved skin elasticity and hydration. But how long does it take to work? The same studies imply that collagen supplements were taken for around 69 days on average.

Other research suggests that collagen needs to be taken for at least six weeks to notice the health benefits to the skin. Researchers believe that the best collagen supplement may encourage the body to produce its own collagen and other proteins that can help improve the structure of the skin and speed up the time of wound healing. Plus, marine collagen for acne sufferers may also be beneficial, as the same studies above suggest supplements can prevent acne.

Another study found that those participants who took a collagen supplement during a 12-week placebo-controlled trial reported improved skin condition, particularly in those females over the age of 35. The supplement included added vitamin C and E, as well as zinc, which is also associated with good skin health.

Quality matters

When answering the question of how effective are collagen supplements for skin health, it's crucial to understand that the quality of the collagen you take matters. Always choose the best supplements from a multi-award-winning collagen brand, such as Kollo, who are also Informed Sport approved. Take a look online for more details.
