Reduce Lines and Wrinkles: Living Traditionally Collagen supports and promotes natural growth and development of collagen fibers (which provide support and structure for your face and body). Collagen supplements provide essential small chain peptides, proteins, amino acids and proline which encourages your body to naturally produce and maintain collagen fibers. This can reverse years of collagen loss and make existing skin tone/structure appear more youthful and radiant...with less wrinkles and cellulite!

Collagen greatly helps in hair growth and regeneration.
It possesses anti-oxidant properties and fights the production of free radicals in the body. Naturally produced in the body, free radicals damage the hair follicles, leading to hair loss. But having a sufficient amount of collagen in the hair shaft, strengthens the hair follicles and improves hair growth. Ingesting collagen can also improve the overall volume of your hair by increasing the diameter of each individual hair, thereby giving your hair a fuller appearance.
Hair is primarily made up of keratin, which your body produces most effectively when the blood supplies follicles with amino acids. To increase the supply of amino acids in your blood, you can take collagen supplements, which are absorbed by your small intestines. Hair follicle cells use these amino acids to produce keratin proteins.
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.

One reason why collagen peptide powder is a good supplement for your nails is because it's high in the amino acid, arginine. Collagen peptides contain 18 of the 20 amino acids... arginine is one of them. This creates Nitric Oxide which is essential for bringing blood and nutrients to nail roots.
A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology investigated if and how collagen peptides benefits the nails. The subjects supplemented with the collagen peptide powder once a day for 24 weeks.
The results: supplementation with collagen peptides promoted an increase of 12% nail growth rate and a decrease of 42% in the frequency of broken nails. Moreover, about two-thirds of the subjects reported better outcomes with less brittle nails. Almost 90% of the participants showed improvement after 24 weeks of taking collagen peptides. "The majority of participants (80%) agreed that the use of collagen peptides improved their nails' appearance, and were completely satisfied with the performance of the treatment," concluded this studies authors.
