Pregnant and still beautiful


You may know many superstitions about how pregnancy takes away the beauty of mothers. The goal of this article is to reassure you that there is a way to stay beautiful even during pregnancy. The physical demands of pregnancy are enormous. It often manifests itself in changes in the quality of hair, nails and skin. We know that many women struggle with excessive hair loss during pregnancy or after childbirth. Therefore, it is necessary to help them with a substance that strengthens the scalp and hair roots.

Collagen is a protein that is rich in the amino acids proline, glycine and hydroxyproline. Proline is the main component of keratin, of which hair is composed. Collagen also plays a crucial role in the health of our skin. The skin is made up of three basic layers: the skin (epidermis) - the upper part, the dermis - the middle layer of the skin and the hypodermis (subcutis) - the lower layer of the skin. Collagen makes up approximately 70% of the dermis. Since the roots of the hair follicles lie in this part of our skin, it is logical that if this layer is enriched with collagen, it positively affects the overall health of the hair. This layer of skin is also responsible for its support and elasticity.

There is also scientific evidence to support the fact that taking collagen peptides can improve nail growth and reduce brittleness.

Skin and stretch marks. More than 50% of women develop stretch marks on their abdomen, breasts and hips during pregnancy. It most often occurs in the third trimester. The main cause is hormonal changes along with weight gain. A woman's body grows slowly and gradually during pregnancy, the connective fibers in the skin stretch and try to adapt to the growth. However, unreasonably fast growth leads to sudden stretching that causes the skin to tear. As a result, the deeper layers of the skin can shine through, which we see as the red- purple color of stretch marks. This sudden change causes, that collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin elastic, break down. Creaming the abdomen or breasts can help, but it is important to support the overall elasticity of the skin. And that's exactly what AUROMEDA brand Collagen Epsilon can do. Collagen contains high-quality bioactive hydrolyzed collagen peptides from fish obtained by cold hydrolysis. These will not only supplement the missing collagen, but at the same time help to start the own production of collagen fibers.

In addition to fighting against stretch marks, Collagen Epsilon can also help you recover after childbirth, when the respective areas of the skin have also undergone major changes and needs regeneration.

Joints. Hormonal fluctuations, weight gain, and changes in posture can all contribute to joint pain during pregnancy, especially in the hips, knees, pelvis, and lower back. Collagen Epsilon also has a positive effect on the joints, which often suffer from increased weight at the end of pregnancy. Collagen also ensures the flexibility of veins and vessels, for which the increased blood volume during pregnancy is also a burden. Start taking collagen before problems appear to allow time for a visible effect.

Collagen Epsilon is the right choice for all pregnant ladies due to its unique composition. The effects of collagen are complemented by the benefits of folic acid, vitamins B1, B2, vitamin K, vitamin D, natural vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and iodine. Experts recommend taking 600 mg of folic acid during pregnancy to protect the fetus. Collagen Epsilon contains just such an amount.

Folic acid is part of the genes and chromosomes of every cell. Its deficiency in pregnancy can increase the risk of miscarriage, placental abruption, low birth weight of the newborn and premature birth. Folic acid deficiency further increases the risk of child's birth defects such as spina bifida, cleft lip, cleft palate, heart defects or limb disorders. Folic acid is also important for the mother herself, because its deficiency can cause a type of anemia that is manifested by weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath, irritability and headaches.

Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, plays an important role in maintaining the body's energy and is necessary for the growth and healthy development of the fetus during pregnancy. Lack of riboflavin during pregnancy can be associated with the risk of preeclampsia - insufficient blood supply to the placenta. The intake of riboflavin during pregnancy has a positive effect on the birth weight of babies.

Vitamin B1, or thiamin, belongs to the group of B vitamins. Regular supply of vitamin B1 supports alertness, zest for life, helps against moodiness and irritability. It increases psychological well-being, mental balance and reduces nervousness. Pregnant and lactating women need a regular intake of vitamin B1. This vitamin is important for the development of the child's brain.

Iodine is an important part of thyroid hormones. It is its most important function. Newborns born to mothers who had low iodine intake during pregnancy may develop congenital hypothyroidism - reduced thyroid function. Pregnant women need higher amounts of iodine. Iodine is very important for the development of the fetus and child and for the production of thyroid hormones. It has a significant impact on good health at all stages of life.

Vitamin K is the general name for the group of vitamins K1, K2, K3. It does not accumulate in large quantities in any organ of the human body, and therefore it is necessary to supplement it daily in food. It is necessary for bone mineralization, cell growth and the metabolism of blood vessel wall proteins.

Vitamin C and D are necessary in the synthesis and formation of collagen. Vitamin D in combination with collagen helps improve bone metabolism and relieve joint pain. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and contributes to muscle protection.

Calcium plays an important role for strong and durable bones. In addition, it is also important for the proper functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system. This mineral is also essential for the heart, muscles, nerves and hormones of the developing baby and for the healthy development of its bones.

Magnesium takes care of the proper function of muscles, nerves and bones. It will also make your heart happy because it supports its activity. It alleviates the symptoms of muscle spasms, has a calming effect and relieves mental tension. During pregnancy, the body requires a higher intake of magnesium, as it is also necessary for building bones, organs and the healthy development of the child's nervous system.

Experts generally recommend that expectant mothers consume around 71g of protein per day to support their baby's growth. Collagen supplements can be a convenient and enjoyable way to get protein into your diet.

Collagen during breastfeeding

Mom's belly and uterus grew for nine months, and after giving birth, it's time for them to shrink again. Perfect for original size. Collagen supports the elasticity of tissues not only while they are growing, but also later, when they are trying to return to their original state. Keep in mind that you will likely be carrying "a few extra kilos on your hands," and your joints may not be used to the added weight. Even a baby who "takes everything from you" in the form of breast milk still needs collagen for healthy development.

In addition, Collagen Epsilon is also very helpful in wound healing, healing and regeneration of injured tissues and mucous membranes. That is why mothers will appreciate it not only during pregnancy, but also immediately after giving birth.
