Collagen is produced naturally by the human body and is replaced on a regular basis. However, over time, the body gradually loses its ability to regenerate it. Numerous diseases, as well as increased physical activity, become the main cause of the decrease in the amount of collagen, as well as disturbances in its renewal. These disorders cause mobility problems, joint stiffness, backache, and contribute to the formation of wrinkles, cellulite, and hair loss. With a reduced amount of collagen, the skin becomes flabby, wrinkled, and pigmentation disorders appear. The ability to bind and retain water is also reduced. The skin is dry, rough and very sensitive.

After the age of 25, the production of collagen fibers is disturbed. Collagen deficiencies are also felt in the joints, which begin to cause more problems, as well as in the functioning of internal organs and the quality of vision. In women, this process increases after the menopause as a result of a decrease in estrogen secretion, which interferes with collagen synthesis.

The degradation of collagen fibers cannot be completely prevented, but ways are constantly being sought to significantly slow down this process. Therefore, it is not surprising that cosmetics that stimulate the reconstruction of collagen fibers in the skin, as well as dietary supplements that supply collagen from the inside, are very popular. In hot dry areas premature ageing of the skin is exceedingly common because of the effect of sun damage. 

One way to counter this decline is to use skincare products with ingredients that stimulate collagen production, such as retinol, vitamin C and glycolic acid. 

The other way is taking a regular collagen supplement. It may benefit your skin, as well as other areas of your body. Collagen powder is another preparation that will help to inhibit the ageing process. Proponents of collagen powder is more effective than collagen tablets. This is because powdered collagen usually contains a higher dose of the active ingredient. Collagen powder preparations also contain other ingredients that allow you to take care of your hair, nails and joint condition. 

To make healthy collagen peptides the body needs sulphur, vitamin C and colloidal silica. Our Collagen Food supplies all these nutrients in a delicious powder suitable for vegans. Contains colloidal silica to promote healthy hair, skin and nails.
