We all know the extra lengths people go to, to stay young. We pull, cut, stretch and plump up. Fillers and Botox, plastic surgery and 12-step skincare routines. All of this is easy to avoid by merely taking care of our bodies, from the inside out.

Balancing your meals with healthy food choices is always a good idea! Other than that, adding a supplement or two to even out the gaps in your nutritional intake, can make all the difference.

Take collagen, for example;

“Collagen type 1 makes your bones supple and durable. Those who lack collagen will have brittle bones, prone to breaking, even if their bones are thick and they have no calcium loss”, says Dragana, the Pharmacy Operations Manager, at our Crossing Centre Mopani Pharmacy store.


In a previous article, Dr Allison Blair explained, “Collagen is the building block of all connective tissue in the body. Collagen can be found in your hair, skin, nails, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It is also found in your veins, corneas and teeth. Collagen is an essential protein in the body. It works as the glue that keeps everything together!”

Your body uses glycine, proline, vitamin C and copper to create collagen. Not having enough of this in your body will reduce its ability to make new collagen. As we age, our bodies are often not able to produce enough, even if we have all of the ingredients needed.

Beauty Gen – The Answer

Beauty Gen offers an all-natural collagen supplement called Beauty Greens 5-in-1, that is focused on not only providing an external appearance benefit, but taking care of you, from within.

The supplement predominantly consists of collagen, with added dairy-free probiotics, omega 3’s, buffered vitamin C and organic superfood ingredients.

Not only is it a nutritious boost for your overall health, it has benefits that will translate directly to your hair, nails and skin. It will promote elasticity to your skin, nourish it and build natural barriers against damage. Your nails will have the nutrients it needs to be strong, and not be brittle. Your hair should grow out stronger with more shine.

Each of the ingredients have value to your overall health and wellness. Read more about these ingredients here: Live the difference with these vitamins and minerals
