One of our most frequently asked questions at Absolute Collagen HQ is: “Are collagen supplements effective?”

Collagen is a beauty buzz-word and many people are wondering if supplements like Absolute Collagen actually work and can really transform your skin from the inside-out.

Well, we know that collagen supplements are more than just hype! Read on to find out if collagen supplements are effective.

The Science Behind Collagen

the science behind

Collagen is a protein that forms the connective tissue for almost all the structures in your body, from your bones to your skin.

While our bodies produce collagen naturally, research shows that collagen levels begin to deplete from the age of 25. By the time we get to 40, we will have lost around a third of our collagen supply within our bodies. This causes our skin to age and contributes to wrinkles, saggy skin and weakened joints.

Collagen reduces wrinkles in the skin leaving a supple, youthful appearance, keeps your joints strong and flexible. Many scientists believe that the best way to increase our collagen levels is to do it from the inside out. Absolute Collagen supplements allow you implement collagen into your diet leaving you feeling happier, healthier and stronger.

Are collagen supplements effective?

A lot of research has been conducted to find out if collagen supplements are effective.

A German study was done in 2015 with elderly men on collagen peptides against placebo. For three months, they took collagen peptides whilst performing resistance training. The results found that the men in the collagen taking group developed more muscle mass. This proves that Absolute Collagen can help build lean muscle.

Another study was carried out in 2015 where oral collagen peptide supplements were taken by a group of participants over an eight week period to see if collagen would improve the hydration levels in their skin. Results found that it did and the effects from the collagen continued 12 weeks after discontinuation of the supplementation.

Plus, our very own in-house trichologist, Eva Proudman, conducted her own 12-week hair trial to see how Absolute Collagen affected hair and scalp. As early as the second-week participants reported a change in hair texture, with all reporting a smoother, sleeker feel.

By the end of the trial, the candidates own perceptions and the actual examinations show that the hair benefitted in terms of condition and manageability in 100% of cases.

So, are collagen supplements effective? We think yes!
