Mie Collagen + Probiotics 

Why we need Collagen and Probiotics 

Collagen is the glue that holds your body together. Starting around age 40, your body stops replacing Collagen as quickly as it did before. One of the reasons our skin starts to “age” is that our Collagen is breaking down.  

As a result, we experience a decrease in skin firmness, the emergence of wrinkles and reduced performance of joints and muscles. Adding a collagen supplement supports the body’s ability to replenish normal aged-related collagen loss. Collagen’s anti-aging effects include improved skin health, beauty, joint mobility, and muscle performance. 

The same thing that happens to your skin as you age is also happening in your bones, muscles, and even your gut.  

Benefits of Collagen: 

  • Improves Skin Health – collagen may help slow the aging of your skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness. 
  • Boost your Immune System – collagen is an immune system booster as it helps build antibodies and has important antiviral properties 
  • It helps relieve joint pain – as the amount of collagen in your body decreases as you get older, your risk of developing degenerative joint disorders such as osteoarthritis increases. 
  • Prevents bone loss – your bones are made mostly of collagen, which gives them structure and helps keep them strong 
  • Promotes heart health – collagen provides structure to your arteries, the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body 
  • Hair and nail health – taking collagen increases the strength of your nails by preventing brittleness 
  • Promotes gut health – collagen supplements are sometimes used to treat intestinal permeability, or leaky guy syndrome 


Probiotics are a combination of live beneficial bacteria and/or yeasts that naturally live in your body. Bacteria is usually viewed in a negative light as something that makes you sick. However, you have two kinds of bacteria constantly in and on your body – good bacteria and bad bacteria. Probiotics are made up of good bacteria that help keep your body healthy and working well. Good bacteria help you in many ways, including fighting off bad bacteria when you have too much of it.  

Taking a high-quality probiotic supplement contributes to a healthy balance of good digestive tract bacteria. The connection between healthy digestive tract bacteria and overall health is strong. Good digestive tract health is connected to immune health, brain health, mood digestive health, skin health and more. The standard American diet (high in processed food and sugar), the overuse of antibiotics, drinking too much alcohol, stress, cigarette smoking, a lack of exercise and inadequate sleep are all disruptors of healthy bacteria. 

There are some medical conditions where probiotics may help. This can vary between people, meaning that what works for one person may not work for another. These can also vary based on the certain probiotic that is taken.  

Some of the conditions that might be helped by increasing the amount of probiotics in your body (through food or supplements) include: 

  • Diarrhea 
  • Constipation
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) 
  • Yeast infections 
  • Urinary tract infections 
  • Gum disease 
  • Lactose intolerance 
  • Eczema 
  • Upper respiratory infections 
  • Sepsis 

Mie Collagen + Probiotics – the combination of collagen and probiotics is an excellent approach to a more youthful appearance. In addition to skin and join health, collagen is recommended to improve digestive tract health. Likewise, in addition to digestive tract health, probiotics are recommended to help improve the skin’s appearance.
