What is collagen and why should I use it?

Collagen is an important protein in our body. Young skin contains up to 80% collagen, which provides firmness and elasticity. After the age of 25, collagen production in the skin can start to decrease which can cause less firmness and elasticity, so it is very important to keep collagen levels high.

What is collagen used for?

Collagen is good for the skin.

The skin consists of several layers of skin. The epidermis is the skin we see from the outside. The dermis is the skin that follows underneath and it is this that is mainly composed of collagen.

Collagen is an important structural component in the fight against skin aging. It keeps the skin firm and elastic making it look fresh and youthful.

Our bodies produce collagen, but this production can decrease after the age of 25. This can lead to a loss of fullness in the skin and the appearance of wrinkles. Aging skin means a loss of collagen in the skin.Adding collagen to the skin's structure can help reduce skin aging. You can think of beautiful, firm skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines. Look at the image where the reduction is clearly seen.

If Ester-C® (vitamin C) is present in a supplement, it contributes to the formation of collagen, which is important for cartilage and bones.

At what age is collagen recommended?

From the age of 25 collagen production may decrease, so you can choose to take extra collagen through the collagen anti-aging complex. Even at an advanced age, for example past 65, you can continue to consume it.

Collagen in creams

Collagen creams can provide good temporary care for the outer layer of your skin. It will retain moisture better.

For a longer effect, we recommend a cream with, for example, hyaluronic acid. No other biological substance can retain so much moisture, up to 1000 times its own weight.

You can also stimulate collagen production by using skin care products with vitamins C and retinol as main ingredients.

RevitalTrax's serums contain hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and retinol.

Injectable Collagen

This is a cosmetic procedure. Collagen is injected deep into the skin, passing through the epidermis. This method literally fills in wrinkles.

Injectable collagen has immediate results that last up to about three to six months. After that time, the collagen is absorbed by the body and the effect slowly wears off.

Today, hyaluronic acid is mainly used for injections, yet the use of collagen injections has decreased significantly.

Supplementing collagen through foods

You can also ingest collagen easily. Think of a diet with good proteins and oils, fiber, fatty acids, fruits and vegetables. Here are some examples of foods rich in collagen.

This is not enough to make up for the loss of collagen, so fortunately there is also another efficient way to get the desired amounts of collagen. That way is by drinking collagen supplements.

  • Meat contains rich sources of collagen and protein, especially beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, beef and venison. Broth also contains large amounts of collagen.
  • Oily fish has a lower collagen content than meat, however, fish scales contain a lot of collagen.
  • Eating fruits and vegetables is always good. Red varieties contain a lot of lycopene, which helps in the production of collagen. Red peppers, tomatoes, carrots, white cabbage, spinach, eggplant, avocado and endive are also beneficial for the production of collagen.lágeno. 
  • Also choose sulfur-rich foods to promote collagen production. These include celery, leeks, green and black olives, cucumbers, garlic, onions, bananas and tofu.
  • There are other foods that are important for the production of collagen in your skin. For example, soy milk, cheese, tea and nuts. Products rich in lysine, such as brewer's yeast, potatoes and algae, are also essential for maintaining collagen.
