You’ve probably heard about collagen before. But what exactly is it and how does it work?Keep reading to find out more!
What is collagen?
Collagen can be found in connective tissue, such as skin, bones, tendons and blood vessels. It’s an important component of skin, hair and nails, providing them with firmness and elasticity.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen formation and protects the skin from free radicals.
Can you get collagen from your diet?
Chicken legs, pork legs and other “strange” food items cooked at a low temperature for a long time turn into gelatin. Our ancestors ate all the parts of the animal, meaning their diet was full of gelatin. During the digestive process, gelatin is converted into amino acids, which our body then uses to make collagen.
Why use a supplement?
As we’re not getting enough gelatin from our diet, taking a collagen supplement can be a huge boon to your skin’s appearance - making it look more youthful and glowing.
One of the best collagen product on the market, UNDO Collagen Drink, uses a unique combination of hydrolysed marine collagen with a high absorption rate and with added hyaluronic acid and vitamin C.
Regularly drinking UNDO Collagen stimulates the body’s natural formation of collagen. As a result, the skin has better elasticity, is firmer, more moisturised and visible wrinkles are greatly reduced.
