Should men be taking collagen?
Collagen is great for both men and women.
As men age, their collagen production decreases (same as women), this impacts muscle, skin tissues, hair, energy, and metabolism.
Collagen is a vital protein to keep the functions of the body feeling stronger for longer.
Is collagen good for men's health?
For men specifically, as they age, collagen is great for muscle mass as it contains good protein. In addition, common men's health concerns such as muscles atrophy or andropause occur with age, so it’s a great idea to add collagen to their diet.
The top 5 reasons all men should take collagen are:
- Improved bone and joints
- Growing stronger and thicker hair
- Muscle recovery
- Gut health support
- Heart health
Two of these profound benefits that men are most interested in include hair health and improving muscle, bone, and joint health.
A bit more on hair health
Collagen is great for hair, especially coupled with Hair Plus, it can improve the strength and growth of hair.
Men who are noticing hair thinning can benefit from collagen as it:
- Helps to improve and maintain the elasticity, strength, and growth of healthy hair
- Helps to improve micro-nutrient delivery to hair for better strength
- It's thought that collagen may help with follicle regeneration
Muscle recovery, bones, and joints
Studies have shown that supplementing with collagen peptides along with exercise can help increase muscle strength, as well as reduce fat mass; it can also elevate muscle recovery. In fact, when taken along with resistance training, men may notice an increase in fat-free mass (lean muscle).
In addition, taking collagen over time improves joint health, improving mobility and decreasing pain associated with aging joints, including in osteoarthritis.
Collagen supplementation has also been shown to improve bone density.
All these important benefits are key to feeling stronger for longer.
