All about Collagen today, I have been super eager to write this post, as I am borderline.. okay I’ll admit I am head over heals in love and obsessed with Collagen. We all create it, however as we age the production of it starts to decline which leads to wrinkles, fine lines, decline in suppleness and smoothness and aging of the skin. Collagen is responsible for our skin elasticity, and strength. Collagen unfortunately cannot be absorbed through the skin, so this is where supplements come in and are key.
I trust the quality of Reservage. I have never had bloat from their products, or any side effects, except for positive ones. In the past three weeks I have noticed that my skin is softer, plumper, and my fine lines has started to decrease. Full benefits of these supplements show at 6-8 weeks, so I will keep you all updated, but I am already widely impressed in all the benefits I am experiencing now. I quickly want to go into that a good collagen supplement usually has three key ingredients. I) Vitamin C 2) Hyaluronic Acid 3)Collagen or Collagen Peptides.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C plays a crucial role in the synthesis of collagen.
Hyaluronic acid –Hyaluronic acid is a form of sugar molecule naturally produced in our body that maintains the skin’s ability to retain water. Hyaluronic acid makes our skin look plump and hydrated, but hyaluronic acid levels in our body decrease as we age.
There are many ways to get collagen I choose to get mine from powder which I will link Here! and also in pill form Collagen Hydra Booster and Beauty R & R. I only take two at most collagen supplements at a time, with doctors consent. So let me break down my favorite supplements and how and when I take them.
Collagen Replenish Powder – I take one scoop daily in 32 oz of water, (you do not need to take it in 32 oz. of water I just love to stay hydrated, but the recommended is 6-8 oz. of water, juice, or any non-carbonated drink. It is tasteless, and I promise that. There is nothing worse than thinking that what your buying will be tasteless and then it has a not so delicious taste.
