Heart, joints, sports and hair: collagen is also for men

Let's dispel a myth: collagen is not just for women!


Today, we would like to dispel one of the many myths that still live in the collagen universe: a supplement loved only by women for having beautiful skin? Of course not! Not only! We have already had the opportunity to explain to you the large and small "magic" with which this protein can support us in many areas of our life, regenerating all the tissues of our body, from joints to bones, from muscles to ligaments, from mucous membranes to skin. , without forgetting hair, teeth and nails. 

This world of benefits, with a daily dose of HYGEE hydrolyzed collagen will naturally also support the well-being of many men, supporting them in case of sporting activity, heavy work, incorrect postures, cardiovascular health and, why not, physical appearance, giving them stronger hair and a more toned and youthful appearance.


Collagen: an ally for the athlete in you

We all know how important it is to exercise and exercise to maintain a healthy life. Practicing regular exercise not only improves physical health but also mental health. Intense physical activity, however, if not managed correctly, can also have some negative implications: intense and repeated exercises, shocks and sudden movements cause the tissues to age more quickly, making them fragile. A daily dose of hydrolyzed collagen of at least 10 grams per day , in this case, will allow you to cushion the stress caused by physical activity, whether recreational or competitive. 

Muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments will in fact find in collagen constructive elements for their own regeneration and repair, at any age: the mass will not increase, but the resistance will be greater and the recovery faster. If the desire is also to increase muscle mass, however, do not worry: collagen can easily be combined with the more classic proteins at times when many, in the gym, increase the load of weights in their training... which we will also be able to lift more easily! With each step, runners will gain more flexibility in their stride and more agility in their recovery. While cyclists, in addition to more agile pedaling, will achieve a reduction in recovery times, alleviating muscle pain. And in jumping? We will obtain less trauma in impact with the ground. 

And if the microlesions caused by physical activity can cause muscle and osteoarticular inflammation, the hydrolyzed collagen will work precisely in those inflamed areas, in the extra cellular matrix, strengthening it. Without forgetting how hydrolyzed collagen acts positively in the recovery phases from an injury, contributing to the rapid reconstruction of tissues and the healing of wounds. Collagen, in fact, is involved in the structure of muscles, tendons and ligaments and in their repair after physical exercise. Supplementing your diet with hydrolyzed collagen can help promote faster recovery from muscle and joint injuries, helping to reduce post-workout pain and inflammation. 

Not just sport: collagen for those who do heavy work

For those who practice heavy work, managing large loads in daily activity could lead to mechanical stress on all the tissues involved in movement: cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments. There are many risks of micro-lesions: to strengthen these tissues, the hydrolyzed collagen will support the endogenous stimulation of collagen proteins, giving them fundamental support to promote elasticity and recovery, even in the case of bad postures. As? Helping to maintain the thickness of the cartilages and their shock-absorbing action between the bones, strengthening the structure of the bones themselves, tendons and ligaments.  


Strong and healthy heart with collagen

Important for everyone, cardiovascular health is often kept under control even by many men. Here's some good news: Collagen provides structural support and strength to the wall of blood vessels, thus helping to maintain their integrity and function. 

In fact, when collagen decreases or deteriorates, the elasticity of the blood vessels will also change: a factor which, with many others, contributes to different pathologies such as atherosclerosis (caused by the narrowing of the walls of the arteries) or to the risk of heart attacks and stroke. Keeping the arteries in good health is essential, in addition to a good pace of life and eating and sporting habits.

Without forgetting the health of our gastrointestinal system, in which hydrolyzed collagen will be very important for strengthening the structure of the mucous membranes, avoiding sagging, also strengthening the mucous membranes of the esophagus, stomach and intestines.


The benefits of collagen for the beauty of men and women

Hair loss? For many men it can be caused by many factors such as hormonal imbalances, poor diet, medications and other medical conditions. Speaking of correct dietary intake, collagen will be of great help in healthy prevention activities: this formidable protein stimulates the regeneration of the scalp, supporting its structure and promoting hair growth. 

If the follicle is in a healthy environment, it will support the growth of the hair, avoiding suffocation: the aforementioned cardiovascular well-being will also contribute to this, where good circulation will guarantee oxygen to the follicle itself.

With its dose of amino acids , the hydrolyzed collagen will then work in the creation of the hair's keratin, naturally supporting the formation of our collagen proteins which will act spontaneously on the tone and well-being of the epidermis, counteracting the onset of the first wrinkles, making the skin more toned, beautiful, young and luminous. Collagen, in fact, is essential for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by physical and environmental stress.
