The benefits of Collagen Food:
- Healthy hair, skin and nails: MSM is a natural sulphur-containing compound. Sulphur is required for the production of collagen and keratin which help to maintain strong hair, skin and nails. Biotin in our formula may help to prevent against hair loss and brittle nails, and silica may help to reduce wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
- Healthy joints and connective tissue: Vitamin C is well known for its ability to repair and replace the damaged collagen that has been worn away by ageing, free radical damage, daily wear and tear and injury. Silica helps to maintain bone strength and calcium absorption. The combination of ingredients in our formula may help to reduce inflammation in the joints and improve flexibility.
- Reduced pain and inflammation: As vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, it helps to fight against free radicals that cause damage and inflammation in the body. The sulphur content also assists the cells in removing excess fluid and toxins, aiding in the reduction of inflammation and pain.
- Improved liver function: The antioxidant and sulphur content of this formula help to support and strengthen the pathways responsible for adequate liver detoxification. The formula may help to support those with a sluggish liver or could be used as part of a detox program.
- Exercise recovery: Taking MSM and vitamin C prior to exercise could help to reduce the risk of muscle or ligament damage. For those with pre-existing ligament or cartilage damage, this formula may assist in healing and preventing further injury after exercise.
- Strengthened immune system: Vitamin C and zinc are required by immune cells to help fight infections. Deficiency of these nutrients may increase susceptibility to contracting a virus or bacterial infection. As MSM helps to remove excess toxins from the body, it works well with nutrients to strengthen the immune system.
