Why collagen supplements don’t do anything to replenish your collagen levels
Collagen supplements cannot replenish the collagen in our body.
When you consume collagen products, your digestive system breaks down the collagen into nothing more than amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.
The collagen you just consume is no longer in the form of collagen when it passes through your digestion.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are very large particles, much too large to pass through the barriers of your skin and therefore cannot be absorbed by your skin.
Collagen products merely sit on the surface of your skin until you wash them off.
Collagen peptides and nano peptides are simply collagen molecules that have been broken down into into shorter chains of amino acids. They are no longer in the form of collagen molecules.
The only collagen that your body can use is the one it makes on its own.
There are many types of collagen. Your body knows which type to make and how much it needs.
You can boost collagen production by consuming plant foods that are high in antioxidants.
Most plant foods contain antioxidants, but several foods contain much higher amounts, for example certain species of rose (not the rose used in rose bouquets!), cactus fruit, acerola cherries, cranberries, and most types of berries.
