Staying youthful, energetic, and healthy as we age can be a challenge, especially when there’s so much to focus on outside our own health and well-being. When we’re busy reaching critical points in our career, running our own business, taking care of our kids, or training for sports, we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves. If we want to age gracefully on the inside and out, then taking care of our bodies, including our skin, muscles, joints and overall health, should be a priority.
The benefits of collagen
Collagen, the most abundant protein in our bodies, is what forms and holds many of our organs and tissues, including our joints, bones, cartilage, muscles, skin and connective tissue. Collagen is the glue that holds your body together. You’ve probably heard by now that it’s great for slowing down early signs of aging – and it’s true. This is because collagen production declines naturally as we get older.
Although we’ve all heard of collagen cream, did you know you can consume collagen to capture all its amazing health benefits? This is why we’ve created the Ultra Collagen Total Body Renewal formula, which delivers hydrolysed collagen peptides to replenish and boost natural collagen production. When we age, supplements such as abeeco Ultra Collagen are convenient and effective in meeting our body’s collagen needs. In combination with a collagen cream you can help reverse small wrinkles and lines.
Here are three age groups that can benefit from collagen supplements:
Our 30s are arguably the busiest time of our lives. We have to juggle different identities - being a parent, a friend, a spouse, a daughter or son, a business-person – which can all get really overwhelming for our bodies.
It’s during these years when signs of stress or fatigue can overcome us, and early signs of aging can appear, such as wrinkles, fine lines and dry skin. During this time, collagen, along with a healthy and balanced lifestyle, will help reduce these signs and slow down the aging process.
Plenty of celebrities in their 40s can look a decade younger because they’ve taken good care, and invested heavily, in their skincare. So at this age, collagen continues to work to reduce the signs and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
However, the older we get the less collagen we produce, so we lose more volume and elasticity in our skin, two factors which makes skin look youthful. Collagen can help bring back all that volume and elasticity, which has been proved to provide better results and more noticeable improvements for older women.
When we’re in our 50s, we start to experience other signs of aging in our body than just our skin. Our joints can become more sensitive, our hair can get really dry, and our nails can get very brittle.
At this age, taking collagen is not only great for skincare, it also supports joints and ligaments, helps maintain the integrity of your cartilage for greater mobility and flexibility, and strengthens and fortifies our hair and nails by preventing brittleness.
