No one deserves to feel super gorgeous more than new mamas. You’ve spent nine months growing your little baba, now you’ve got sleepless nights, nappy changes and... postpartum skin and hair loss to contend with.
Whilst we probably can’t help you with the night feeds and the 5am starts, we can help when it comes to looking and feeling your best with our Bioactive Collagen Peptides.
Here's 5 ways how our collagen can assist new mothers in looking and feeling their best from the inside out:
Supports Wound Healing
Revive Collagen plays a key role in wound healing. Its synthesis and deposition around the damaged tissue help “close” the wound and re-establish tissue integrity.
Counters Postpartum Hair Loss
Postpartum hair loss happens because your hormones – like estrogen and progesterone – rise considerably during pregnancy, reducing the normal loss of hair. But, alas, your hormone levels drop once your baby arrives, and your hair makes up for “lost time” by falling out in much bigger clumps than usual. But don’t fret. While you can’t stop postpartum hair loss, you can control it. How? Two words: Revive collagen.
Collagen is rich in proline – the main component of keratin, a protein that makes up your hair. So, the consumption of collagen should provide your body with the building blocks it needs to create new hair that’ll replace all that “catch-up hair loss”, putting you back on the path to luscious, enviable locks.
Noticeable Skin Elasticity and Smoothness
Pregnancy and lactation together can cause the skin to stretch beyond its normal limits, sometimes resulting in stretch marks. Revive Collagen supports the regeneration of new skin cells and can help give skin an enhanced ability to stretch and bounce back to its original position. Our collagen can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Improved Bone Health
Breast milk contains high levels of calcium, a mineral essential for the bones and teeth of a growing infant. To meet the increased demand for calcium, a mother's body may resort to bone resorption. During this process, calcium stored in her skeletal system is drawn out and redirected to her breast milk.
While this is entirely natural and may not pose a problem, there’s a chance it can lead to problems down the road. To counter these challenges, collagen supplements can support bone health and skeletal strength, which may help a mother avoid brittle bones and osteoporosis later in life.
It can help you sleep
Collagen is packed with an amino acid known as ‘glycine’. Amino acids are proven to help with a restful night’s sleep, improving ‘fatigue induced by restriction.’
And let’s be honest, any extra zzz’s we can get postpartum are most welcomed.
There are arguably fewer natural dietary supplements that are more natural than collagen. After all, your skin is 80 percent collagen and your body is programmed to produce it! New mommies, let Revive Collagen nourish your body from within while you focus on your new bundle of joy!
Disclaimer: Revive collagen is 100% safe during pregnancy. However, we always recommend you check with your midwife or doctor before taking any supplement or medication.
