Does Collagen really work?

blog

Does taking Collagen really work?  Its a questions I get asked a lot.
Honestly, I used to wonder how taking animal collagen could actually be of any benefit to us humans at all.  But, here’s 3 things I’ve learnt…

👉Its all about supporting our own collagen production

👉 We can only benefit from collagen supplements if we have enough zinc and vitamin C (zinc deficiency is very common in NZ)

👉Not all collagen supplements are created equal.

What is Collagen?  It is a protein in your body, one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth.  As we age, our body produces less and lower quality collagen.  What we have, can also be damaged by too much sugar and refined carbs, excessive sun exposure and smoking. 

Research shows that taking a daily collagen supplement can make a real difference. Why?  Because our body simply can’t make enough. We rely on diet to provide the nutritional building blocks for collagen. Our modern diets are low in these key components. Bestow Collagen boosts your supply of collagen building blocks in a form that is easily used by the skin and it also promotes healthy hair and stronger nails.

Bestow Collagen Boost is NZ’s most bioavailable collagen supplement!

With as low as 1,000 Daltons* Bestow Collagen Boost is New Zealand’s most bioavailable collagen.

So what are Daltons and why do they matter? A Dalton is a unit used to measure molecular weight. In this case, collagen peptides. The lower the number of Daltons, the easier it is for your body to absorb and utilise. The collagen peptides in Bestow Collagen Boost have NZ’s lowest number of Daltons, meaning it is the most bioavailable on the market.
