Recently, we read an article that said a woman’s collagen levels start to deplete after the age of 25. 25, holy cow! So, in order to keep your hair, nails, and skin looking amazing, you need to supplement them. Coogals are all about their designer coffee, now we just need to add a scoop of collagen to it in the morning.

Our model started taking O Nutricia supplements and saw a difference in her nails almost immediately (about a week later).

Hair growth:

This supplement is great for hair growth and skin appearance too. Our model was under the impression that she would only see the results in three months time. After a month of using collagen supplements, she started to notice lots of new baby hair growing around her crown. She was excited that her hair was growing but wasn’t loving all the little fly-aways’ framing her face! She’s so excited about all her new hair, long, luscious, healthy locks here we come!

Our model went to the hairdresser for her 6-week root tint and saw him examining her hair, she asked what he was looking at and he said she has a lot of in-between hairs that he hasn’t seen before. Wayne was assessing if this was broken hair or baby hair. He said it’s too long to be baby-hair, but it doesn’t look broken either. That reaction reaffirmed that the supplements were working!

Skin changes:

After 8 weeks of using the O Nutricia collagen, we started seeing a difference in our model’s skin. She was no longer having regular breakouts and her skin was looking smoother. She had two shoots that week for her blog. One make up artist said to me ‘I can see that you never wear makeup hey, your skin is so healthy’. When our model told her, I wear makeup, every day to work and I wear even more on the weekend, she gave her the stank eye. I know she didn’t believe our model. Another makeup artist asked her if I wear sun cream every day, our model told her she didn’t, and she replied with  ‘wow, you’ve got really great skin, you need to look after it’. Our model is so happy with these results and this is a brand I will be using for years to come.

How we use our Collagen

Put a heaped teaspoon of collagen in your coffee every morning and take three capsules with vitamin c in them in the evenings. The vitamin c helps the body to absorb the collagen, try to sip on water with strawberries or blueberries in it during the day. The collagen powder is completely odorless and colorless so it’s easy to add to anything, we’ve also added it to soups. It makes your morning coffee frothy and creamier too which is an added benefit.

Tip, we found if you add the collagen to a fizzy drink it takes the fizz away, so we would not recommend that. We also noticed if you added it to a drink with sugar in it, like concentrated juice then the collagen goes clumpy, so we would not recommend that either. We found that hot drinks, soups, or plain water works best.

The science behind the O Nutricia Collagen:

Collagen is a key protein in the body that ensures the elasticity and regeneration of skin, tendons, organs, fibrous cartilage, and bone. The process of renewal can be disturbed by disease, poor nutrition, stress, UV rays, and toxins. Collagen is beneficial for joint pain and as an anti-aging nutrient to help the skin remain youthful. O Nutricia is a bioactive protein that supports collagen replenishment. Collagen contains high levels of the amino acids glycine, hydroxyproline, proline, and arginine.  As peptides are of nano size, they can easily pass through the intestinal wall and accumulate in the blood. After only 15 minutes, these peptides are distributed to the connective tissue stimulating endogenous collagen synthesis.
