The Truth About Collagen For Men
A common misconception about collagen is that it is just intended for women.
And not just collagen, but any type of beauty product for that matter…
But the truth is… Men need collagen too!
And it’s safe to say that we all (both women and men) want to look and feel our best each and every day. Right?
So, for the guys out there…
If you are looking at Complete Collagen Plus and wondering, “Can this help me too?”
The answer is…
Complete Collagen Plus worked absolute wonders for me (check out my story here)… but that doesn’t mean it is just meant for women…
We can ALL benefit from such an amazing product.
Because all the exceptional ingredients within the product itself deliver noticeable results (keep reading on to learn why each component is so important).
In fact, my husband Scott drinks it every morning in his coffee, and he LOVES it!
So gentlemen… Fear not.
You too can enjoy your daily dose of this delicious anti-aging caramel and reap the benefits – just like my husband and I do!
But let’s get into just HOW this product can benefit all of the MEN out there too!
Benefits of Collagen
Collagen is a key component for
healthy hair, skin, and nails.
And boasts internal benefits like more energy and flexible joints.
These positive results can be enjoyed by both men and women!
But, let’s focus on hair here for a moment… As hair loss is a fear for many… especially men!
A 2014 survey by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, saw that approximately 35 million men in the United States suffer from some form of hair loss while approximately 21 million women are affected by hair loss.
Furthermore, the American Hair Loss Association says that by the age of 35, two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of hair loss… And by the age of 50, approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
Collagen levels in our body decline as we age and can also decline due to poor habits like excessive alcohol or tobacco use, too much sun exposure, and even excessive intake of sugar.
When we lose collagen in our bodies, it can lead to hair loss.
You see, collagen is a protein that holds the dermal layer of our hair and the follicles together, which in turn keeps our hair strong and healthy.
But, when our collagen production reduces, our hair follicles become brittle. And when the dermal layers get dried up, it can result in hair loss.
It’s clear that hair loss is a valid concern for both men and women. And, collagen is an integral part of having strong and healthy hair.
If you notice a bit of hair in the drain in your shower or some thinning beginning to show, it might be a good idea to start supplementing with collagen. Nip that hair loss in the bud before it takes over fully!
Of course, collagen can work wonders for us beyond our hair line….
Collagen can also give us energy
and can even help with muscle mass.
There are ample amounts of amino acids in collagen – such as glycine, glutamine, and arginine – which play an important role in supporting a healthy metabolism and muscle mass.
Collagen also works to keep the central nervous system healthy which can help us with our energy levels. More energy means more gusto! And we all want that.
Collagen also helps with joint support.
Collagen can work as an important factor in building, repairing and also maintaining the cartilage in our joints.
If you have regular wear and tear, work out a lot, or just have a very active lifestyle; some of your cartilage could be worn or damaged.
This can be problematic as our joints rely on the cushioning that the surrounding tissue and cartilage provide. Once the cartilage is damaged, you begin to get joint discomfort and in some cases morning stiffness (which can make it very difficult to get out of bed in the morning).
Collagen helps support the tissue and cartilage that make our joints work smoothly and move effortlessly.
You might be thinking, “I don’t have joint discomfort.”
Well if you are fortunate enough to experience zero discomfort in your joints… Consider yourself lucky!
But, the truth is, with time your cartilage will wear. Taking collagen as a preventative measure can help avoid that in the future.
So, for the men reading this… it’s clear that collagen is beneficial for you too!
More Anti-Aging Ingredients
Not only is Complete Collagen Plus full of collagen… But it also has other super beneficial ingredients like MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), Algal DHA (Omega 3 Fatty Acids), and Vitamin E.
- MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) have been shown to promote healthy weight. In fact, they were made popular by the Keto Diet. They are extraordinary for three reasons… One, they keep you feeling full, longer. Two, they give you an instant boost of energy. And three, they can trick your body into thinking you don’t have to store fat! For this reason, MCTs are actively being researched as a way to control weight.
- Vitamin E plays an essential role in protecting the skin from damage caused by free radicals and supporting healthy immune function. Moreover, many studies have found that free radicals can destroy your hair roots. In fact, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect your scalp against damage. It can also help our skin protect itself better from things like pollution, second-hand cigarette smoke, and sunlight.
- Algal DHA (Omega 3 Fatty Acids) have been shown to help your skin seal in moisture and keep pesky skin-irritants out! Even better… it can also promote hair growth. Omega 3’s are also good for maintaining a healthy heart.
All of these ingredients combined make for a product that both men and women can enjoy to look and feel their best.
