  • Collagen Health Benefits

    Of late there has been a high demand for collagen health supplements and many people have been calling us to make inquiries about it and whether we stock it.
    So we write this blog is to enlighten you about collagen and why it is gaining so much attention and popularity.

    What is Collagen

    Collagen is a type of protein composed mainly of three amino acids. 1. glycine, 2. proline, and 3. hydroxyproline. These amino acids form three strands, which make up the triple-helix structure of collagen that supports the health of skin, joints, and hair.

    It’s the most abundant structural protein in animals. A structural protein is one that makes up the structure or framework of your cells and connective tissues of Skin, tendons, bones and cartilage. Connective tissue cells called fibroblasts produce and maintain collagen.

    Your body naturally produces collagen, and you can consume it through dietary sources such as foods rich in these three amini acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. One such product is Aloe arborescence leaf extract and foods rich in high vitamin C such as moringa eleifera.

    Deficiency of collagen leads to signs of aging such as sagging skin and wrinkles..


    Collagen’s specific roles include:
    • Helping fibroblasts form in your dermis (middle skin layer), which helps new cells grow.
    • Playing a role in replacing dead skin cells.
    • Providing a protective covering for organs.
    • Giving structure, strength and elasticity to your skin.
    • Helping your blood to clot.

    Signs and Symptoms that collagen level is decreasing

    Collagen can’t be measured — for instance, in a blood test — but there are signs that your collagen level is decreasing. These signs and symptoms include:
    • Skin that’s wrinkled, or sagging.
    • Hallowing in and around your eyes and face.
    • Shrinking, weakening muscles and muscle aches.
    • Stiffer, less flexible tendons and ligaments.
    • Joint pain or osteoarthritis due to worn cartilage.
    • Loss of mobility due to joint damage or stiffness.
    • Gastrointestinal problems due to thinning of the lining of your digestive tract.
    • Problems with blood flow.


    1. AGING: As people grow older, their collagen becomes fragmented, fibroblast function becomes impaired, and collagen production slows. As you age, your collagen production naturally declines. Additionally, collagen becomes fragmented and more loosely distributed.
    2. SMOKING cigarettes is known to degrade collagen and cause skin aging, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.
    3. EXCESSIVE ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION has also been shown to accelerate skin aging by reducing collagen production and damaging skin repair mechanisms.
    4. EXCESSIVE SUN EXPOSURE degrades collagen production as well, so avoiding excessive sun exposure can help prevent signs of premature skin aging.
    5. ULTRA-PROCESSED FOODS eg Sugars, tomato sauce and soy sauce can lead to premature aging by contributing to a process called glycation, which reduces collagen turnover and interferes with collagen’s ability to interact with surrounding cells and proteins
    Collagen supplements and cosmetic products such as skin lotions, moisturizers and serum which are marketed by companies that manufacture them should be taken with caution. The reason being that collagen cannot be absorbed nor penetrate through the skin to rebuild connective tissue.

    Collagen supplements gets digested and broken down into aminoacids once they are ingested and are therefore distributed to the body where they are most needed. The claim by the manufactures of the products that they have been researched misleading and any doctors that is they claim have done these research have been paid to give false information in favor of the companies manufacturing the products.


    The best source of collagen is eating foods rich in aminoacids that form collagen in the body. These 3 amino acids are glycine, 2. proline, and 3. Hydroxyproline. The richest source of these amino acids are Aloe arborescence herb.

    In our foundation we have the best aloe arborescence herbal supplement capsules which is a rich source of amino acids responsible for collagen formation. It’s a wonderful product that works wonders in restoration of bodies connective tissue.
