Can you support your body’s collagen production without the help of animal products?
Why does this matter in a blog about hair? Well, because collagen-production affects the health of your hair. And the heath of your hair affects how it appears.
Here’s what you need to know.
We’ve talked extensively about building collagen before (you can click here for our guide). With that in mind, Purium Co-Owner Amy Venner gave some highlights from this guide in her recent Lifestyle Zoom.
If you missed it, you’re in luck! We’re breaking down key points from the Zoom here, and you can even click the link below to watch the Zoom directly for yourself.
Without further ado, let’s build some collagen.
If you walk around the local market or department store, you may find that collagen-boosting products are more readily available than ever before.
But most of them contain animals products, like bones. Does it make sense to eat more bones in order to strengthen your own bones? To us, that’s a definite no.
Collagen is a protein one of the most plentiful protein in our bodies, in our muscles, bones, organs, skin, and even intestinal lining. So, our approach is to help your body build that collagen rather supplement it with animal parts.
Here’s some key tid-bits to know:
- Collagen-synthesis (how our body produces collagen & how that collagen is used) decreases as we age.
- Some signs of this includes wrinkles in the skin, losing flexibility, and developing joint pain and osteoarthritis.
- As we accumulate toxins in our body, they accumulate in the interstitial fluid in our body. (the water between our cells). When that occurs, collagen production begins to decline. Think of this fluid like the oil in your car. When the oil in your car is inefficient, it has an effect on your car. Then you need an oil change!
So, just how can you give an “oil” change to your body’s collagen production ability? Here’s how.
Here are some ways Purium products may help support your collagen production, and healthier looking skin and hair.
First, you will want to prepare your body for collagen synthesis.
The ULT contains products that may help nourish and detoxify your body. By nourishing and detoxying, you are prepping your body to feel and perform its best. Here are some key products that may help from the ULT:

Then you want to support your body’s ability to store collagen.
