The connection between collagen and younger looking skin is long established and has become a pretty mainstream concept by now. Inevitably some iteration of this link has landed on your radar, be it ads for collagen injections, or an eye-wateringly expensive topical cream.
Most people are focussed on getting the stuff from the outside in, and not enough people are talking about the benefits of working from the inside out.
The truth is, Clean Living Company Bone Broth and Keto Collagen Powder can have powerful positive effects on your skin, hair and nails by working from the inside, out.
What the research says
By and large, research on the subject has been conducted in small controlled groups, there are as yet no wide span studies that provide extensive data.
However there is only so long we can wait for the rest of the science community to catch up with what we know to be true!
One such small study, conducted in 2014, for example, had a group of women taking either a 2.5- or 5 gram collagen hydrolysate supplement, or a placebo, daily for eight weeks.
Both collagen groups saw significant improvements in skin elasticity, researchers reported.
Clean Living Company clients frequently report rapid hair growth, with more trips to the barber and hairdressers required to stay on top of the growing tresses, as well as faster nail growth and greater elasticity in the skin.
Board certified naturopathic physician and author of numerous best selling books about Bone Broth and Collagen, Dr. Kellyann Petrucci explains, as both a scientist and from her own lived experience – “In plain English, collagen supplementation can make your skin more elastic, more dewy, and less wrinkly. It does this by strengthening the collagen matrix in your skin.”
We know that collagen is one of the key protein building blocks of the body. Its long form fibrils form crucial structure for the skin, giving it strength and elasticity. An abundance of collagen fibres beneath the epidermis, hold the skin up, like the foundation of a house, or scaffolding.
If these collagen fibres begin to deplete, as they do naturally with age, when the body reduces its own production of collagen, the foundations start to lose their strength and the skins structure begins to weaken, and sag, causing the appearance of wrinkles.
Ingesting collagen is key to getting the collagen to where it needs to be.
A word of warning
If you are seeking to ‘fix’ thinning hair or ageing skin, check in with your health coach or naturopath to be sure that these symptoms aren’t indications of an underlying health condition.
Your body doesn’t really care what your hair or nails or skin look like, it cares about keeping you alive and it’s possible that if you’ve experienced a sudden change, beyond the typical changes that come with age, these might be the sign of an underlying health issue.
However, the introduction of Bone Broth and collagen can contribute to overcoming a huge spectrum of health issues so there are only benefits to introducing it into your diet.
