Did you know from the age of 25 your collagen levels decrease by 1.5% a year?
This means by the time you are 50 they have reduced by 52.5% !
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body and makes up a third of the protein composition. It's one of the major building blocks of skin, hair, nails, bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments!
Think of it as the "glue" that holds all these things together.
Skin health is an external reflection of what is going on in our body internally and supplements are an excellent way of supporting skin health from the inside.
In our client consultations we always discuss a treatment plan to include skin care and treatments but by adding skin nutrition at this point in the form of supplements will support clients treatments and enhances overall results.
Skin is the largest organ in the body and is connected to every other organ and body function. Without adequate nourishment it will show signs of premature ageing, inflammation, stress, acne, rosacea and eczema.
Supplements can really help but there are so many out there it can be so confusing knowing which one to choose!
Collagen Shots are a good place start.
This award winning collagen drink contains 10,000 yes you read that right.
10,000mg of marine collagen in each serving.
To give you idea you would have to take about 20 tablets a day to get the same amount of collagen in tablet form.
It also contains the powerful anti oxidant Acai berry, hyaluronic acid, zinc and Vitamin C.
All of these are fantastic to hydrate and plump the skin .
However it's not only for the skin but also helps with menopausal symptoms.
If you have problem nails it helps to strengthen them and improves hair growth, it supports bone and joint health and helps our beauty sleep. I mean what more can you ask for?
It can take up to 3 months to start seeing results, for a lot of our clients the first things they notice is their skin and nails becomes more hydrated.
How do you take it ?
Take your Collagen Shots daily on an empty stomach. Ideally half an hour before going to sleep at night. This is when cells are renewing. If you eat late at night, have on an empty stomach either first thing in the morning or before a meal.
Place one level scoop (supplied in pouch) of Collagen Shots into a glass.
Add 200-250ml of water, whisk with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Leave to stand for one minute. Whisk again and drink. It tastes like a mild berry juice, in case your are wondering.
