The Role of Collagen in Hair and Nail Health
Before we jump into the recipe, let's take a moment to understand why collagen is a key player in maintaining healthy hair and nails.
Boosts Hair Growth: Collagen is a protein that makes up a significant portion of your hair's structure. It provides strength and elasticity to your hair, making it less prone to breakage and damage. By consuming collagen, you can support hair growth and maintain the health of your locks.
Enhances Nail Strength: Collagen also plays a vital role in nail health. It contributes to the structure of your nails, making them less brittle and prone to splitting. Incorporating collagen into your diet can result in stronger, more resilient nails.
