Living a healthy life that shows begins with the right foods.
Living a healthy life that shows begins with the right foods.
Eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet keeps your body healthy and youthful, but the benefits do not stop there. Eating the right foods can also keep you beautiful on the outside, nourishing your skin, hair and nails with vitamins and nutrients that keep them smooth, strong and healthy.
Antioxidants, Vitamins and Proteins, Oh My!

Your skin is subjected to a daily assault by UV rays, environmental pollution, cigarette smoke, and other free radicals. These free radicals affect the texture of the skin, making it drier and rougher, while also increasing wrinkles and age spots. Vitamins such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A, as well as other antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, combat these free radicals while providing nutrients for skin that protect it and fight the signs of aging. Blueberries, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach and citrus fruits all provide these valuable vitamins. Other great sources of antioxidants include green tea, red wine, and chocolate.
Keep your skin youthful by nourishing it with vitamins, antioxidants and plenty of hydration.
Hydration, Please!

Your body is 50%- 75% water, so it goes without saying that hydration is very important for the entire body, including the skin. Skin that is dehydrated can lose its plump texture and become dangerously dry. Drinking plenty of plain water every day will keep your skin hydrated.
Healthy Oils for a Healthy Body

No-fat diets may seem ideal, but the truth is, some fats are necessary for the body to stay healthy and functioning well. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish and nuts such as almonds, are healthy oils that nourish the skin and hair, as well as being very good for the cardiovascular system. Omega-3 fatty acids must be eaten, or taken as supplements, so adding fish to your weekly diet, or trading those sugary or salty snacks for some healthy nuts are a delicious way to nourish your entire body.
Quality, Not Quantity

Even the best foods can be harmful if you eat too much of them. The key to feeding your body well is to focus on the quality of the foods you are eating rather than eating for volume. Organic and unprocessed foods are always the best choice, and if you can eat the fruits and vegetables raw, all the better. Wash them well so you can enjoy the skins if edible, since the skin is where a great deal of the vitamins and nutrients reside. Add in whole grains, fish, low-fat dairy products and low-fat meats. Use the Mediterranean diet as a guide, eating the meats in smaller quantities or as a side dish.

Even the most balanced diet has holes in it. Sometimes this is because a particular vitamin or nutrient is not available in large enough quantities to satisfy the body's needs, or perhaps because the body does not produce the substances anymore. Collagen is a good example of the latter.

Collagen is a protein that helps provide strength, structure and protection for the body. As we age collagen production slows down. This results in sagging skin, wrinkles and weakened cartilage in joints. Various methods are used to increase collagen levels. Collagen can be applied topically in creams or even injected into the skin, but ingestible collagen supplements are one of the best ways to boost collagen levels. LAC Taut collagen drink is a great example of a hydrolyzed ingestible collagen drink that replenishes the skin's collagen levels.

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.
