Can Collagen and Biotin Slow Age-Related Hair Loss?

Hair loss is the least of your worries, right? Well, yes and no. Whether it's genetically motivated or the result of an underlying illness or condition, thinning hair can feel like a neon sign calling the world's attention to us in a very unwanted way. However, it can be difficult for others to understand why it is such a big deal. After all, undergoing chemotherapy, having a serious thyroid issue, going through menopause, or one of the other myriad things that cause hair loss are far more serious than having to clean the shower drain or wearing a hat. Or so we're told.

It is a big deal, though. Hair is culturally a big deal. Being raised in a world that glorifies Rapunzel, Lady Godiva, Jennifer Aniston, and Dolly Parton (even though she wears wigs!) makes it difficult to embrace thinning hair. And when we are experiencing losses in other areas of our lives, we want some things to just feel normal!

How exactly does Marine Collagen grow your hair & nails?
There is no shortage of topical skincare creams, serums, and gadgets that claim to restore your skin's youthfulness and glow. We're practically swimming in them! While some can bring impressive results, they fail to realize one thing - just like the health of your internal organs, you have to first address your nutrition before you can see any significant results. This is what makes marine collagen a dietary supplement you don't want to miss out on. The health benefits of this powerful collagen protein don't stop at the gym - marine collagen can help to alleviate joint pain, improve gut health, and enhance your everyday skin and nail routines! The only trouble is, we can't get enough of it. As we age, our body produces less and less collagen leaving our skin a little more dull and wrinkle-prone, and our hair and nails more brittle. Keep reading to learn about how collagen supplements can improve the health and appearance of your skin and nails with every scoop!

Best Supplement for Joint Pain Relief Without the Stomach Upset
Chronic joint pain doesn't just impact your joints; it affects energy levels, mobility, and even gastrointestinal health. Managing joint pain can be done through light exercises and stretching, but when the pain becomes too much, over-the-counter pain medications can be used.

Here are some natural supplements that have been shown to decrease joint pain and inflammation without causing stomach upset.
