"True beauty comes from within" ... You are taught that from a young age, a reminder that who you are inside is what really matters. While this may sound cliche, it is the truth, beauty really does come from inside us. Keeping our bodies healthy and our minds active and nourished shows. It's a direct and easy path to a beautiful body and a beautiful mind and heart.So where to start in your pursuit of true beauty? Read on!

You Are What You Eat

One cannot be beautiful without first being healthy, and a healthy body starts with a healthy, well-balanced diet. Many foods, especially fruits and vegetables, contain high levels of vitamins and antioxidants that help to protect the body from the effects of free radicals. Free radicals result from the effects of environmental pollution, chemicals and poisons, cigarette smoke and UV rays. They are also instrumental in speeding up the aging process, so keeping free radicals in check and neutralizing the negative effects they have on the body is key.

Spinach, red cabbage, kale, beets, eggplant, basil, Brussels sprouts, and red bell pepper are just some of the vegetables and herbs that provide high levels of vitamins and nutrients that help keep skin fresh, smooth, glowing and beautiful.

Let's Get Physical!

In addition to the right foods, a healthy body also requires plenty of exercise. Exercise can help keep you healthy and beautiful in a variety of ways. Exercise increases blood flow throughout the body, nourishing your scalp and giving your skin a healthy glow. It decreases stress levels, especially the stress hormone cortisol, which interferes with the production of collagen. In addition, exercise helps to boost the production of collagen in the body, enabling your skin to repair itself and fend off wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Exercise also improves your posture, helps you keep your weight controlled, and helps you to sleep better. The result: a more confident and beautiful you.
Love Your Skin

Eating foods that provide generous amounts of antioxidants and vitamins is very important if you want to have beautiful skin. Our skin suffers abuse every day from external factors as well as from oily, fatty foods that we often eat. This abuse can manifest as wrinkles, spots, and dry skin with poor texture and a dull look. Taking care of your skin by eating the right foods - fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats - while avoiding over-processed foods and "bad" fats, will help to delay the aging process. Skin can remain healthy, smooth, and bright.

In addition, there are many ways to increase the resilience and health of the skin. Anti aging products, such as collagen supplements, can be added to the diet to provide particular nourishment that may not be available in food in the amounts needed to help the skin.
Energize Your Soul

A large part of true beauty is your mindset. Negative energy brings you down, causing depression, bad attitude, and negativity that is projected out to other people. Now you not only feel bad about yourself, but other people feel bad about you.
Meditation and relaxation techniques help improve your mood and ensure that you maintain a healthy and positive mindset.

Meditation and reflection are the best ways to energize the soul and adjust your point of view to one that is positive. For added benefits, physical activities, such as Yoga and Pilates, can be paired with meditation and relaxation techniques. One of the simplest ways to get rid of negative energy is to have a positive mindset.
Knowledge is (Beauty) Power

An active mind is a hallmark of youth, so keeping your brain stimulated is a key to staying beautiful. Reading on a daily basis, as well as learning something new every day will help keep the brain vital and alert. Meditation is also a way to keep the mind healthy and beautiful for years to come.

Finding True Love for Your Self

Finally, achieving true beauty requires you to have a true appreciation of yourself and what makes you beautiful. Truly loving one's self gives you confidence in yourself, in your achievements and yes, in your appearance.

A balanced, healthy body is a beautiful body. Achieving that goal is easy when you take care to eat healthy foods, get plenty of exercise, feed your mind, and take time to be at peace with yourself.

Are you concern with thinning hair or hair loss? You are not alone. 

Besides wrinkles and sagging skin, hair loss and thinning hair are  the biggest concern for women and men. 

What you should know is, everyone sheds hair to some degree, but if you feel like your hair is shedding at an abnormal rate, you might be suffering from hair loss.

Contrary to popular belief, hair loss is not a disease that only affects the guys. Women actually make up 40% of hair loss sufferers, according to the American Hair Loss Association . Hair loss can be absolutely devastating for women. Losing your crowning glory may make you feel unattractive and hurt your self-esteem.

Collagen drinks are a boon for hair loss sufferers who are looking for ways to combat shedding and grow thicker, fuller hair. 

Collagen production in your body starts to decline as you age, and this makes your hair more vulnerable to breakage and loss. Taking a collagen supplement can help to replace lost collagen and increase your body’s hair-building proteins.


The Difference Between Hair Shedding and Hair Loss

 It’s normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs per day. If you’ve been noticing more hairs on your hairbrush or pillow than usual, you might be suffering from telogen effluvium, which is characterized by excessive hair shedding. There are various factors that can cause telogen effluvium , including the following:

  • High stress levels
  • Giving birth
  • Losing 20 or more pounds
  • Undergoing surgery
  • Recovering from an illness, particularly one accompanied by a high fever

In most cases, your hair starts to grow back a few months after the stressful event has passed. Within six to nine months, the hair regains its usual thickness. This type of hair shedding is different from hair loss, which occurs when your hair stops growing altogether. The most common causes of hair loss include the following:

Some medications and treatments

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Harsh hair care products
  • Hairstyles that pull on the hair
  • Poor nutrition

If you’re suffering from hair loss, your hair will not grow back until you address the underlying cause. 

The good news is, you can  help prevent and treat hair loss by making a collagen supplement a part of your daily regimen.


The Connection Between Collagen and Hair Loss

 In February of 2016, a team of researchers in Japan discovered that decreasing collagen levels near hair follicle stem cells is linked to hair loss. The lack of this particular type of collagen, type XVII collagen, leads to the damage of hair follicle DNA. Scientists observed this phenomenon in mice that were 18 months old, which is the age at which mice start to lose their hair. Older mice have fewer, thinner hair follicles than younger mice. The study showed that hair loss was less common in aging mice that continued to produce collagen.

In mice that lack type XVII collagen, the damaged stem cells turn into skin cells and are sloughed off like dandruff. This leads to hair follicle shrinkage and hair loss. Scientists believe that the same mechanism applies to humans.

In a separate study of the human scalp, the Japanese researchers found that the hair follicles of women in their 50s and older were smaller than the hair follicles of women in their 30s and 40s. Scientists are excited about these findings because it could help them find the cure for baldness.


Collagen: The Secret Ingredient Offering Hope for Hair Loss

Collagen is well known for helping to restore a youthful complexion , but its benefits are more than skin deep. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body that is essential to healthy skin, hair, and nails. Collagen is the building block of the hair and surrounds each strand, so it is key to your hair’s quality and structurally reinforces it. 

Hair is primarily made up of keratin protein , which your body produces most effectively when the blood supplies amino acids. To increase the supply of amino acids in your blood, you can take collagen supplements, which are absorbed into your small intestine. Hair follicle cells use these amino acids to produce keratin protein.

Collagen also increases blood circulation in your body. An increase in blood flow to your scalp is a great way to promote scalp and hair health. It ensures that your hair follicles get the nutrients they need and helps your hair grow faster.

As you age, your hair may become dry and coarse. Collagen can be used to treat dry, brittle hair by increasing the hair’s moisture levels and repairing split ends. Collagen can also reduce the appearance of gray hairs.

Anyone who’s interested in maintaining a youthful complexion and reducing wrinkles has likely heard of collagen supplements. Collagen is a protein that serves as a key building block in connective animal tissue. It is the most abundant protein in the human body.

The dermis, or inner layer of the skin, is made up of mostly collagen, which gives the skin its resilience, strength, and texture. Aging leads to the breakdown of collagen, causing wrinkles, sagging skin, and rough texture. By the time we reach 30 years of age, we stop producing collagen and our body loses collagen at a rate of 1-2% each year.

There are two types of supplements that stimulate collagen growth for skin: collagen builders consisting of key essential amino acids and ingestible hydrolyzed collagen.
