  • Collagen Powder – anti-aging from the inside


    Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. It can be found in the skin, joints, tendons, cartilages, blood vessels, muscles, bones, even in the eyeballs and our digestive system. We can say that this gelatinous substance “holds together” our entire body (also called the body glue), but especially our skin, which is 75% made up of collagen. Unfortunately, over time our body produces less and less of it. And here, do not say “oh, of course, when we get old”, because the truth is that the deceleration process begins after the age of 20. 1% less is produced each year, so by the age of 60, the process will stop completely. Loss of collagen cause most of the problems that come with age (such as joint pain, hair loss, weakening nails) and wrinkles too. In order to slow it down, along with a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle, beauty professionals also recommend to supplement collagen.


    You may already have bumped into serums or moisturizers that contain collagen that claim they have a super anti-wrinkle effect. The sad truth is that due to its molecular structure, it cannot be absorbed through the skin where it is needed, so you can’t expect more than some moisturizing effect (which is not necessarily bad, of course). Whereas, if you consume it internally, the situation is different.


    Most collagen powders are made from hydrolyzed collagen of animal origin, mostly extracted from beef (possibly pork, chicken or fish). Consuming them regularly can help rejuvenate, elasticize and slow down the aging process of tissues and skin. Besides, you can contribute to the “oiled” function of the cartilage, joints, and healthy nails, skin, hair, teeth and bones.


    There are basically 5 types of collagen that play a different role in the body – usually collagen powders contain many different types. If your primary goal is to keep your skin young, you need Type I collagen, or if you want to improve cartilage health, you need Type II collagen. This information is usually found on the package of the product. It is also important that you choose a high quality collagen from a clean, reliable source (not the cheapest).


    These powders are usually easily soluble in cold and warm liquids, and are neutral in taste and smell, so you can consume them in tea, coffee, smoothies, fruit juices, oatmeal or even in soups. It is important that vitamin C is essential for the utilization and production of collagen, so make sure to take your daily vitamin C capsule with it!


    I have inserted one of my former Insta posts above about a collagen powder from my favorite brand, Edible Health. I tried this and the anti-aging version and I love both. The anti-aging one has some taste, but only if you drink it with plain water or coffee. So I mix it into porridge and smoothies. I also tried GAL  porcine collagen, it was not bad, but it was hard to dissolve it in hot and cold liquids as well. Plus the amount is also less, but for those who are just getting started with collagen and don’t want to order it from abroad, this might be a good choice too. Also, I’ve been testing GAL fish collagen since then – I’m currently taking this one – and I think it is much better than porcine. 🙂 It has no taste, you don’t have to worry about that, but it dissolves better.

    If you have any questions, you know where to find me! 😉

    Have a beautiful day & skin!

    With love,
