In recent years collagen has become increasingly popular in the supplement market and even described as trendy. Trends typically have a life cycle with a rise and fall and since collagen makes up such a large part of our body structure, it is here to stay. Collagen is a major component of the body supporting bones, ligaments and skin and as a dietary supplement, it can support these components making dramatic improvements in dryness and wrinkles. One study found that oral collagen supplements also increased skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density (Choi, 2019).
More than ever, Americans are living a fast paced lifestyle and under more stress than ever before. This takes a toll on our nutrition and absorption of nutrients and although we strive to “eat well” and get enough rest, it’s not the reality for most people on a consistent basis. Supplements fill in the gaps to a healthy diet and just as our muscles need protein to properly recover from a workout, our skin needs collagen supplementation which is especially true as we age. After the age of 20, a person produces 1 percent less collagen per year. This means that by the time we reach our 40’s we have 20% less collagen produced by our bodies than when we were in our 20’s. Other factors besides age that contribute to a loss of collagen production is excessive ultraviolet light exposure, tobacco use and excessive sugar intake.
Supplementing with a nutritious beauty drink helps to support the body and many aspects of skin health. A high quality collagen supplement encourages our body to function at an optimal level therefore showing visible improvement over time. As a pioneer in collagen beauty supplements, Forever Beaumore’s Collagen Beauty Drink contains nearly double the amount of collagen as its competitors with over 20,000mg per serving compared to others at only 13,000mg of collagen per serving. Due to Beaumore’s concentrated formula, it is only necessary to drink one serving of the Collagen Beauty Drink 2 or 3 times per week making it an easily integrated beauty supplement. Collagen supplements may seem like a trend due to lots of new products emerging lately but the results achieved while supplementing with a high quality, concentrated all-in-one beauty drink makes nourishing from the inside out a classic skin care step we will continue to do for the long term.
