Collagen for the Skin

Boosting natural collagen and revenue through nutricosmetics

Collagen supplements are hot right now. They’re touted as good for your hair, nails, joints, and skin – with good reason. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and supplementation can help boost levels that may be waning due to aging or other factors. The professional beauty market has recognized the importance of collagen for some time, especially as it relates to skin.

Today, there are a multitude of choices for “ingestible” products to support collagen for healthier skin. Let’s take a look and learn more about the role collagen plays and factors to consider for integrating collagen products as an incremental revenue source for your practice.

WHAT EXACTLY IS COLLAGEN AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

Collagen is a protein that makes up the structural matrix of connective tissues throughout the body, including skin, cartilage, bones, tendons, and even organs. Collagen helps tissues resist stretching or pulling forces, which is important for many of the body’s functions, from firm and youthful skin to wound healing.

Your body can make its own collagen, but it requires special building blocks called amino acids. Some amino acids can be made by the body, but others must come from diet and are called essential amino acids. The amino acids that are used to build collagen are conditional aminos acids such as arginine, proline and glutamine to name a few. These amino acids can be synthesized by the body under normal conditions but may need to come from diet or supplementation, especially when your body is under stress.

Beauty nutrition and this new and exciting sub-category called nutricosmetics are the latest trends and are here to stay.
