How does collagen supplementation help decrease post-partum hair loss?
Collagen has long been known as a wonder supplement for skin but is now also considered an important component of triggering hair growth. Collagen contains proline which is considered a building block for hair. And, although more human studies are required, there is growing evidence to suggest that the amino acids in collagen help with Keratin formation which in turn contribute to thick, healthy hair.
Our body’s naturally produce collagen, but these levels dramatically start to decrease over the age of 25. Supplementing your diet with a good, clean source of collagen, like The Harvest Table’s pure collagen range, can help boost collagen levels and in turn improve skin, hair, and nail condition, decrease joint pain and improve gut health.
