As we’ve discussed in our previous articles, protein plays a vital role in our diets, especially for those living an active lifestyle. However, protein isn’t just good for helping you build muscle or maintain a healthy weight. It is also important for keeping your skin healthy and beautiful!
Beauty begins from within and, in this article, we explain how soy protein and collagen are important ingredients you need.
Protein is just as important for healthy hair, skin and nails as it is for healthy muscle mass. Amino acids are necessary for your body to produce keratin, which is the structural protein that lays the foundation for strong, beautiful hair and nails. Having sufficient keratin in your body prevents issues like brittle nails, hair loss, dull hair and even dull skin.
A steady intake of protein provides your body with important vitamins and minerals — including but not limited to biotin, vitamin A and sulphurous nutrients. You can get these by consuming meat, eggs and dark leafy vegetables as part of your balanced diet.
Other vitamins and minerals that might be more familiar to you for healthy hair, skin, and nails include omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and selenium.
Many skin care products on the market offer these in topical form, such as vitamin E creams and oils that reduce scarring, stretch marks and inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Another reason why protein is important? Collagen.
Protein supports the body’s synthesis of collagen. Collagen represents the most abundant protein in our bodies and is used by several bodily functions to keep our body healthy. It is the foundation for our muscles, tendons and skin, as collagen improves skin elasticity and moisture retention.
So, apart from consuming sufficient protein, ensure that you’re aware of the importance of collagen.
Take your skincare routine to the next level with our Nutrilite Mixed Collagen Peptide Drink. Elevate your body’s collagen production and restore your skin to its glory with this collagen-packed, antioxidant-rich supplement.
This ready-to-use sachet that comes in a powder form contains a combination of marine collagen oligopeptide and soybean peptides, which provide your body with the necessary levels of protein and collagen to promote skin cell regeneration to fight off visible signs of ageing.

A bustling lifestyle can mean that you might not be taking the time to fuel up on the nutrients your body needs to look and feel good. Hence, Nutrilite’s vitamins and supplements give you an easy solution to grabbing your daily dose of protein and collagen.
