Activate your Collagen

As you may have realised by now, we desperately need collagen as it is an important protein in the body. It is responsible for a wide range of functions. from bone and muscle strength, to wound healing, digestive health, hair growth, skin structure, brain and eye health just to name a few. A great question is : If it is so important then why do we loose it ?

There are a number of reasons why our collagen levels decrease over time.

  1. Ageing:( as we age the bodies ability to produce collagen diminishes. This decline in production can result in various signs of ageing, including wrinkles, sagging skin and joint stiffness.

  2. UV Exposure :( Sun exposure is a major factor to collagen loss. UV rays can break down collagen fibres in the skin, leading to premature ageing and the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

  3. Smoking :( this is a well known factor that accelerates collagen degradation. It reduces blood flow to the skin and impairs collagen production, leading to you guessed it premature ageing and skin damage.

  4. Poor nutrition :( Poor Diet affects all out systems of the body and it also affects collagen production. To produce collagen the body requires certain nutrients, including vit C, zinc, and amino acids like proline and glycine

  5. chronic Stress:( When the body is in the state of Chronic long term stress it can lead to the production of cortisol, a stress hormone that can break down collagen in the skin and once again leads to wrinkles and ageing.

  6. Excessive Sugar intake:( High sugar consumption can lead to process called glycation, where sugar molecules bind to proteins, including your collagen fibres. This can lead to the formation of advanced glycation products that damage collagen fibers and contribute to ageing.

  7. Environmental toxins :( exposure to pollutants and toxins, especially in built up areas.

  8. Genetics:( Depending on your skin texture and its resilience will determine how quickly a person's collagen levels decline.

  9. Hormones:( the dreaded menopause and other hormonal changes, can affect collagen production. Estrogen in particular plays a role in maintaining collagen levels in the skin so when that drops you will see dramatic changes to the skin itself.

  10. Lifestyle choices :( Well we all know about excessive alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise and how they accelerate ageing.

And Last but no Least

11. we are seeing a huge rise in Autoimmune Diseases. They cause inflammation in tissues and tissue damage. Collagen is a major component of connective tissues, and characterise by an overactive immune system that mistakenly attacks the body's own tissues.

Therefore, alot of work has gone into understanding and working out how we can improve and maintain good collagen production levels for the ageing person. Because, as we age we want to life a life with energy, vitality and also feel and have confidence in out looks whilst we are doing it. Holistic Health - Inside & Out
