Let’s face it, winter can be a tough few months on our bodies and minds – cold weather and long, dark nights can make it hard to focus our energies on our health and wellbeing – wreaking havoc on our skin, hair, nails and joints. At Nourished Nutrition, we are driven to develop products that simplify the process of getting your daily dose of nutrients, so you can make the most out of every moment you’re given.
Our ‘Nourish + Repair’ Nourishing Protein Blend is infused with collagen to help combat the winter wear and tear and promote youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails & joints. If you’re not using collagen already, here are 5 key benefits:
Improve skin health and smoothness
As we age our body produces less collagen, which can lead to looser skin, increased wrinkles and less elasticity. Collagen helps to restore the moisture that winter weather can take away as well as aid in helping your skin cells keep repairing normally. Collagen supplementation can help promote skin elasticity and tone, giving your skin a smoother, more vibrant glow.
Strengthen hair and nails
Collagen supplementation provides an extra boost of protein and amino acids that are crucial for restoring healthy hair and nails, while reducing signs of aging. ‘Nourish + Repair’ combines anti-aging & revitalising marine collagen with nourishing & strengthening pea protein to assist in strengthening weakened hair and nails.
Reduce joint pain and muscle degradation
As collagen production decreases, our tendons and ligaments generally starting to move with less ease – leading to stiffness and swollen joints. Collagen helps to repair cartilage and hold our bones together, allowing us to move with less pain. By adding collagen into your daily routine, you’re helping your body to more quickly recover and repair your muscles and joints. ‘Nourish + Repair’ provides a targeted level of marine collagen to build into your daily routine to help prevent joint & muscle degradation.
Supports healthy digestive function
Although not a well-known fact, collagen can actually help improve digestion and gut health in the body. Regular supplementation of collagen, can repair the stomach and digestive lining and aid in digestion. ‘Nourish + Repair’ couples collagen with probiotics with the combination designed to support healthy intestinal, digestive system and central nervous system function.
Improve liver health
Winter months can play havoc on our bodies as our diet can often take a backseat as we battle the cold months. Collagen has been proven to be helpful in cleansing the liver of harmful substances as glycine helps repair damage your liver experiences when it absorbs foreign substances, toxins or alcohol that shouldn’t be passing through it.
