Collagen 101

Collagen 101

Grab that glow from within and start integrating collagen into your daily self-care ritual.

Collagen is the most abundant protein and major building block in your body; think of it as the glue that holds the goods together — bones, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, corneas, and teeth. At around 25 to 30 years old, our collagen production begins to decline, producing ~1% less each year and around age 50, collagen production really begins to diminish. These facts are not meant to freak you or create panic. We all age, and this simply a part of that process.

Luckily there are quality supplements available that invite slow, graceful aging by combating collagen deterioration. Studies have shown that taking these supplements for several months can improve hair skin and nail health, skin elasticity, and reduce wrinkles and roughness. Others have displayed increased bone density and improved joint, back and knee pain. Okay, let’s dig into these supplements 👇.

Types of Collagen (at Wildcraft)

We carry two types of collagen supplements:grass-fed, bovine collagen peptides (these peptides are usually better absorbed and tolerated for sensitive folks), and plant-based, vegan collagen boosters.

  1. 100% Organic Animal Based Collagen.Excellent for recovering from injury and sleep quality. Plant-based is our favorite for skin radiance and plumping! Without Vitamin C there is no collagen, so the collagen we share will always contain this for proper assimilation in your body. 

  2. Plant-based Vegan Collagen. One of the tremendous benefits of consuming plant-based collagenboosters is that they are packed with anti-aging compounds known as flavonoids, which work synergistically with collagen boosters to firm skin, smooth wrinkles, boost skin hydration, and support overall wellness. Plant-based collagen helps collagen receptors to stay “turned on” and is 100% bioavailable nutrition. 

For either collagen type, it takes about two weeks to tell a difference in your joints and 30-60 days in your skin. You can also use both types together.
