Perimenopause and menopause is a challenging time for women, both physically and mentally. During this phase, our bodies need different nutrients at different levels on a day-to-day basis due to the fluctuations in hormone production leading to an array of symptoms. Ensuring your body gets what it needs in abundance is key to making those difficult days a bit easier.
During the first five years of the menopause, it is thought that women lose 30% of their skin’s collagen and continue to lose 2% of their collagen annually after that. Women may also experience hair loss which can be distressing as collagen makes up 70% of the skin that contains the hair root. Supporting and protecting collagen is vital for all skin renewal and future-proofing rituals.
Taking True Collagen or our Vegan Collagyn during this time supports your body in maintaining its collagen levels, preventing some of the unwanted effects of the menopause.
As well as collagen, it’s also vital to support our nervous system and sleep cycles as these are often impacted too. Using key minerals; such as Magnesium and Zinc, vitamins; such as Vitamin C and botanicals; such as cacao, ashwagandha and reishi, we can support the menopause in a holistic way. You’ll find these core ingredients across our blends.

The Benefits of Collagen through the Menopause
Menopause is a hot topic right now, and rightly so, as the impact menopause can have on women is little understood. We are delighted to have teamed up with Change the Change to offer some clarity on this important topic, and give insight into how collagen may help.
IS COLLAGEN GOOD FOR MY SKIN?
Yes! Collagen plays an important role in the strength and elasticity of skin and our True Collagen provides highly absorbable hydrolysed collagen peptides. Collagen levels naturally begin to decline as we age, so it is a perfect addition to your daily anti-ageing ritual.
DOES TRUE COLLAGEN HELP WITH JOINT PAIN?
Menopausal related joint pain is often related to the reduced level of estrogen as typically, estrogen helps reduce inflammation. However, the added decline of collagen supply in the body is likely to also contribute to joint pain and discomfort. True Collagen helps to maintain strength and elasticity in the cartilage that acts as a cushion in the joints.
I EXPERIENCE BRAIN FOG. WHICH PRODUCTS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?
Our Inspired vegan Collagyn has been formulated with your mind in mind. With restorative adaptogenic ashwagandha for stress resilience, it is the perfect blend for stressful and busy lifestyles. The vegan range also has key essential vegan nutrients including choline, iodine and vitamin D to support mind, mood, cognitive function and optimal daily wellbeing. The MCT oil is another great product to support brain power. It is a quick and reliable source of energy, providing a fuel source for brain cells.
I HAVE TROUBLE FOCUSSING, WHICH PRODUCT DO YOU RECOMMEND?
MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are types of saturated fatty acids which, rather than being stored, tend to be quickly absorbed, converted into ketones and utilised in cellular metabolism and energy production. MCT is popular for ketogenic diets and nootropic support since ketones provide a potential fuel source for brain cells, helping to keep you focussed and sharp throughout your day.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE I SEE A DIFFERENCE WHEN TAKING TRUE COLLAGEN?
As we are all so different and our bodies react in such different ways, it is very hard to say how long it will take for you to see a difference. We have had a number of wonderful testimonials noticing the benefits from our customers which range from a couple of weeks to a couple of months.
