Collagen is the essential protein for the health of our skin, joints and tendons. It is a structural block of the body and it plays a crucial role in maintaining the youthfulness and mobility of our body. Especially in an active lifestyle!
This protein is becoming more and more trendy and we at Humble+ are delighted to see its democratization. However, who says democratization says more competition. So we see a lot of players trying to stand out by increasing the recommended doses or adding x ingredients with the aim of making you consume more and more collagen.
But how much collagen do you actually need to take in to reap its benefits?
In this article, we'll explore the recommended amounts of collagen for overall wellness, as well as the clinical studies that support its effects on skin beauty and joint pain and tendonitis relief.
1. The beauty of the skin: 5g per day
The clinical study carried out on our Naticol® collagen demonstrates efficacy with 5g per day. By providing your body with a regular dose of collagen, you can support your skin's health and prevent the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
The visible results obtained in 8 weeks are +20% skin elasticity and -11% wrinkles.
Global well-being and prevention: 5g per day
When it comes to taking collagen for preventative purposes, there is plenty of research to suggest that consuming 5g daily can provide significant benefits.
In addition to its effects on the skin, collagen can also help strengthen bones, joints and tendons. It promotes the regeneration of connective tissue, which can be beneficial for maintaining the mobility and flexibility of your joints in the long term.
By consuming 5g of collagen daily, you can support your joint health and reduce the risk of future pain and discomfort.
How to consume 5g per day at Humble+?
All our products are healthy, good and offer a real pleasure of consumption:
- a Collagen Water can with 5g of Naticol® marine collagen
- a Collagen Bar protein bar with 12g of protein and 5g of bovine collagen
- a pod of Naticol® marine collagen in water, coffee or your favorite smoothie.
For curative aid: 10g per day
If you already suffer from joint pain, tendinitis or other mobility-related issues, you can increase your collagen intake to 10g per day. Studies have suggested that higher doses of collagen may have healing effects on joint problems and chronic pain.
This is the case of this study of Naticol® which demonstrates an improvement in mobility and a reduction in pain in patients with osteoporosis.
At 10g per day, collagen can help stimulate collagen production in the body, helping to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. It can also reduce inflammation and relieve symptoms associated with joint problems, such as stiffness and pain.
How to consume 10g per day?
The best price/quantity ratio will necessarily be by taking 2 pods of collagen. But you can absolutely combine our products according to your desires, your schedule and your travels: 5g of marine collagen in your coffee in the morning and a bar for dessert or a collagen water after sport!
We remind you that collagen supplementation should be considered as a complement to a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Consult a healthcare professional for advice tailored to your individual situation. For example, if you suffer from tendonitis, consult a physiotherapist to advise you on tendon mobilization and strengthening exercises.
Ultimately, whether you opt for a preventive or curative approach, collagen can contribute to your overall well-being by supporting the health of your skin, joints and tendons.
