Can Consumption Of Collagen Supplements At The Age Of 20 Years?
morning, I want to ask at the age of 19 want to 20 whether I can consume 500mg suplament collagen? my face is broken and dull. thank you
Hello Ms. Alifa Nur Adinda Insani thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Indeed, as we get older the content of collagen in the body, especially in human skin will shrink. That is the reason why older people have wrinkled and dry skin compared to young people. Normally, collagen production in the body will decrease when a person has reached the age of 40 years, so sometimes someone who cannot receive their skin has wrinkles will do various ways to maintain collagen levels so that they are close to normal, such as by doing various types of facial treatments, injections or there are also those who consume collagen every day.
However, to avoid the occurrence of wrinkles early, consumption of collagen can begin when someone has reached the age of 20 years and above, this is because teenagers and young adults still have optimal collagen production. However, if a person does more activities outside the room and is exposed continuously to sunlight, then consumption of collagen can be done even though he is not yet 20 years old, but with collagen with lower levels.
The decision to take collagen supplements every day should be consulted first with a nutrition doctor directly, because later the doctor will assess how much you need additional collagen. If indeed after checking it is known that the intake of natural collagen for your body is still lacking, then the new doctor will advise you to take collagen supplements.
From our explanation, there is one important underlying thing that you need to understand. That supplements will not work optimally if you are still carrying out unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, eating foods high in sugar and high in salt, not using sunscreen when outdoors activities, consuming alcohol, consuming less water and vegetables and fruit. Therefore you must improve your lifestyle too, if you feel your lifestyle is still not good and ideal. So that we can convey, hopefully useful. thanks.
