How long does it take for collagen supplements to work?

If you take a marine collagen supplement on a daily basis you’ll notice many exciting results including smoother, firmer skin, amongst other major benefits. This is because collagen is the most frequently occurring protein in the human body, and is vital for maintaining skin, hair, nails, muscles and bones. In this post we’ll give you some helpful tips so you know when to expect seeing results.

Your skin, hair and nail state play a role

Age, lifestyle and environmental factors all contribute to the loss of collagen, because of this every person is unique and the state of skin, hair and nails differ from person to person. If your skin is fairly plump with minimal fine lines and wrinkles then chances are you’ll see results faster than if your skin is more aged with sagging and deep lines and wrinkles.

Skin is known to age in two ways: intrinsically (genes) and extrinsically (environmental factors).

Intrinsic factors (genes) include:
+ the rate that collagen breaks down
+ your skins ability to maintain moisture
+ speed of skin cell regeneration and;
+ how fast your skin recovers from skin damage

Extrinsic factors (environmental) are:
+ exposure to sun and wind
+ smoking and alcohol consumption
+ dietary factors ie. sugar intake
+ lack of hydration
+ lack of sleep
+ exposure to pollutants
+ poor skin care habits
+ medication and drug use

The good news is that the list of skin ageing factors you can control is longer than those you cannot.

Many human studies have proved the skin rejuvenating effects of maintaining collagen in the skin. A study conducted on 47 woman between 35-55 years old, showed that in just 12 weeks of daily ingestion of Hydrolysed Collagen, 41% showed increase in skin hydration, smoothness, less furrowing, and less wrinkles.

What our customers say

According to feedback from our customers, along with scientific research on daily collagen intake, changes can be seen and felt from around 4-6 weeks and onwards.

So don’t stop your collagen supplement if you aren’t seeing results immediately. It takes a little bit of time, but when you start seeing results you’ll be excited to make collagen a staple in your life.

How often to take a collagen supplement

Like any supplement ProPlenish Marine Collagen is designed to be taken daily for best results. if you only take ProPlenish a few times a week then the results might not be as significant.

You may want to start with 2-3 serves a day to accelerate results and we have many customers who report this. You can add ProPlenish Marine Collagen powders to your smoothie, juice, tea or water as well as your post workout shake for lean muscle tone.

It’s important to note that marine collagen is scientifically recognised as the most bioavailable form of collagen, being absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body than other forms. Formulated using the lowest molecular weight hydrolysed marine collagen, ProPlenish in powder form is easier for the body to absorb and digest whilst being simple and convenient to integrate into your daily routine. Combined these factors help to stimulate results.

You’ll soon figure out how many serves are right for you. In the beginning you may start with 2-3 and then after a few weeks find that just one a day for maintenance works.
