COLLAGEN CAN BOOST YOUR OVERALL HEALTH
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. The word ‘collagen’ is actually derived from the Greek word ‘kolla’, meaning glue and it is a substance that literally holds the body together.
It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, lungs, digestive system, the lining of our organs, vertebrae of the spine and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells.
Its main role is to provide structural support and strength, however, it also protects organs such as the kidneys and spleen, provides flexibility, support and movement in cartilage tissue. It is needed for the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells and to strengthen tendons and ligaments
Collagen production starts to decline around the age of 40 which impacts on the integrity of the skin, the formation of lines and wrinkles as well as the weakening of cartilage in the joints and degradation of bone tissue.
Consuming foods like bone broth can provide plenty of this vital protein, or you can take dietary supplements to restore collagen levels resulting in health benefits such as:
• Improves hair and skin
• Reduces joint pains and degeneration
• Helps heal leaky gut
• Boosts metabolism, muscle mass and energy output
• Strengthens nails, hair and teeth
• Improves liver health
• Protects cardiovascular health
