One of the number one questions I have been asked lately is about collagen! So today, I am breaking down the research and how it may be of benefit to incorporate into your daily routine.
Skin is the largest organ of the human body
It is first important to note the the largest organ in the human body is our skin. It protects us from external environmental factors. Maintaining the integrity of our skin’s extracellular matrix is important to conserve a youthful appearance. As early as 30s, collagen production begins to decrease and skin’s natural reserve of collagen begins to diminish. Collagen is one of the most important and vital structural substances in our bodies, in fact over 75% of our skin is type I collagen. Some studies suggest that taking collagen daily may help improve skin appearance and minimize unwanted signs of aging by improving skin elasticity and locking in skin moisture.
How to easily take your collagen daily
For those that follow me on Instagram, you have heard me talk about Vejo which is a portable pod-based blender system that makes healthy nutrition on the go possible. One of my favorite pod blends is the “Sleep” blend which is made with tart cherries, a food that contains naturally-occurring melatonin which may help promote a more restful night’s sleep. The matcha latte pod is also a favorite and great when I am running out the door in the morning but need my caffeine and don’t have time to make coffee.
I am especially excited about the NEW Vejo Collagen Glow blend pods which make supporting skin health easy on the go or at home. It contains:
VERISOL Collagen: studies suggest may improve collagen metabolism, increasing skin moisture and slowing down the aging process.
Dermaval: phytonutrient-rich fruit and veggies extract shown to support skin’s elasticity and firmness.
Biotin: a nutrient found in foods like eggs, nuts and seeds that support hair and nail health.
Resveratrol: a powerful antioxidant found in skin of red wine grapes that protect our body from free radicals that may cause damage to skin over time.
