Over this past year I have become an Ambassador for taking Collagen and in particular a product Collagen For Her and here is why.
We all know that our skin is changing, year by year because we can see it, and although less obvious, so are our bones. How much Collagen are we losing each year? A ton of it….to the tune of 1 percent a year after the age of 25. So, our bodies have 25 percent less Collagen by the time we reach 50 years old. Many of us are on a fierce regimen of exercise and proper eating to minimize the aging effects on our bodies. But does our regimen include a Collagen supplement? It wasn’t part of my regimen until this past year. And then Collagen For Her contacted me and I began to research its benefits.
During this past year, I have learned a great deal about the role Collagen plays and how the loss of it can be diminished. Collagen products abound and there is good reason for their popularity. One study in 102 postmenopausal women with reduced bone mineral density (BMD) found taking 5 grams of collagen peptides daily for 1 year significantly increased BMD of the femoral neck and spine, indicating reduced bone breakdown and increased bone formation.

Thus, the aging and Collagen conversation is relevant to our BA50 readers. Research has shown that supplementing with collagen may improve skin health in older adults as well. A review of 11 studies found that taking 2.5–10 grams of collagen per day orally for up to 6 months improved hydration, elasticity, and collagen content of the skin.
Although, I am not a medical expert, the research and studies are easily accessible. I am convinced from all my google searches and discussions with my skin doctor, my GYN and my PCP as well as the BA50 medical community of professionals, that Collagen products are important for our health after we begin Menopause and after.
According to Healthline: Studies have shown that supplementing with collagen peptides — broken down collagen that’s easier for your body to absorb — may be beneficial for older people and promote skin and bone health during aging. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/is-taking-collagen-beneficial-for-older-adults#1
I was thrilled that Collagen For Her contacted me. I have found Collagen for Her to be a great product. The one scoop of powder I put in my coffee each morning has no real taste, just a smidge of vanilla if anything at all. I like it. It’s almost a year since I began this regimen and I truly can see that the elasticity in my skin has improved.
My favorite is the Marine Collagen Beauty Blend because it contains marine collagen plus 100% daily Vitamin C, biotin, and hyaluronic acid for extra benefits for hair, skin, and nails. They also have a pure unflavored collagen powder and capsules if you prefer that.
