17 Aug CAN A LACK OF COLLAGEN BE SUPPLEMENTED BY NUTRITION?
Collagen is the most important protein in the human body and its production decreases with age in both women and men. Our body produces almost no collagen after the age of 40. It is therefore advisable to take quality nutritional supplements.
Many people believe that the same can be achieved through a well-balanced diet. It certainly is possible. However, if the body already has a noticeable deficit of this vital protein, trying to replenish it exclusively through food (in a timely manner) can be very challenging and more importantly, inefficient. Our bodies use a lot of energy to absorb collagen molecules in their native form. However, collagen in a hydrolyzed nutritional supplement is already split into collagen peptides, which the body can absorb and process very easily and quickly.
Taking collagen as a nutritional supplement has its undeniable advantages not only in terms of effectiveness (hydrolyzed collagen powder is generally considered to be particularly effective due to its unrivaled absorbency – see “WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN?”). The use of hydrolyzed powdered collagen can easily be included in your hectic lifestyle. You can take the daily dose of ZEEN collagen with you in a sleek and practical package, wherever you go.
