Collagen supplements and menopause

Why you should take a collagen supplement through menopause

Collagen levels deplete in both men and women as we get older, but for women, this process is even more dramatic due to the hormonal changes that occur with menopause. Our natural collagen production rate decreases by around 1% each year once we reach our early twenties. During the first five years of menopause, collagen production decreases by 30%, and for the next 20 years after that, it decreases by 2% each year.

The impact of reduced collagen can be seen in many ways throughout our bodies. Collagen plays a major role in the health of our skin, our joints, our immune system, and our overall health. There's little wonder that we become more susceptible to lines and wrinkles in our skin, and aches and pains in our joints during and after menopause.

Collagen supplements such as Kollo could be a fantastic solution to this post-menopausal collagen loss. Here's how they could help you to feel your best throughout menopause and beyond.

Pain relief for joints

According to a clinical trial, the type 1 marine collagen peptides used in Kollo can help to improve joint pain within just four weeks. In another, participants reported that pain in joints was reduced and physical function of the joints increased after daily collagen supplementation for 12 weeks.

Reduction in wrinkles

A clinical study has proven that the type 1 marine collagen peptides in Kollo can improve the appearance of wrinkles. After just two weeks of daily supplementation, consumers reported that skin felt firmer, brighter, and more hydrated and radiant.

Overall improvement in health and wellbeing

Kollo is fortified with a host of additional vitamins and minerals to help you feel your best, including Vitamin C and Vitamin B12. Vitamin C is proven to support collagen production, which is why it's so vital that Kollo provides 100% of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin C also plays an integral role in keeping the skin healthy, so you might see additional skin benefits when taking Kollo compared to other collagen supplements.

Vitamin B12 supports healthy blood cells and nerve cells, and it helps to reduce the risk of anaemia. Menopausal women are at risk of B12 deficiency due to hormonal changes, but when you get your recommended intake via Kollo, you could help to combat the tiredness and fatigue that is common with B12 deficiency.
