Why should I be drinking my IPS Hydrolysed Collagen daily?

Think of Collagen as the building blocks that provide structure and support to the rest of our body.
As we age, the amount of collagen we produce decreases. Collagen production begins to decline as early as in your mid-20s.

This is the reason we start to wrinkle and look older.

We should add collagen to our diets not just to reduce the effects of aging but to feel better while doing it.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen is an easily absorbed pure protein source known to have multiple health benefits, fights against the visible signs of ageing, promotes stronger, healthier hair and nails, ensures optimum joint and bone health and helps the body to move freely and efficiently. It is ideal for individuals seeking to reduce the visible effects of aging, recovery after exercise and assist in the maintenance of joint mobility.

Studies have shown that taking collagen supplements in combination with other vitamins supports the natural production of collagen in our bodies. This is particularly true for Vitamin C; if we have insufficient amounts of Vitamin C in our bodies, we cannot produce as much collagen. It is therefore important to continue to use your recommended vitamins daily, and not to replace these vitamins with your IPS Hydrolysed Collagen.

IPS Hydrolysed Collagen helps promote beauty  from within.

What is collagen?

Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix in the various connective tissues in the body. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content.

Collagen consists of amino acids bound together to form a triple helix of elongated fibril known as a collagen helix.
It is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and skin.

Hydrolysed collagen is simply collagen that’s been broken down into easily digestible peptides and in this format it is better able to be absorbed by the body.
