Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is found in our muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It is often referred to the “glue” that holds the body together.
Collagen becomes even more important as we age because production naturally begins to slow down. Other lifestyle factors can contribute to depleting collagen levels like eating a high-sugar diet, smoking, and excessive sun exposure. Consuming foods like bone broth and supplementing with collagen can provide plenty of this vital protein to help us fight back and slow down the aging process.
Top five benefits of collagen:
1. Healthy skin and hair
2. Eases joint discomfort
3. Helps seal a "leaky gut"
4. Promotes healthy metabolism, muscles, and energy levels
5. Deeper, more restful sleeps
Aside from supplementation, the best source of collagen if from BONE BROTH. So, don't throw those bones out! Make a soup! Whether it be from beef, chicken, or pork, start boiling those bones! I know "boneless" meat is easier, but "bone-in" meat is better for you!!!
