Collagen is a protein responsible for bone structure, joint and muscle mobility, and skin elasticity. It’s found in connective tissue, skin, tendons, bones, and cartilage. Collagen can help us feel strong, mobile, and energized.
Collagen is actually naturally produced in the body, and we can consume collagen through some food items! However, it can be beneficial to increase your collagen production by consuming it through a supplement. As we age, it’s likely that collagen production can decrease and not evenly distribute throughout the body. Depending on your personal food and lifestyle behaviors, collagen can be harder to produce. Diets that are highly processed and not well-balanced can prevent the body from reaping the benefits and effects of collagen.
Below, you will find 3 benefits of collagen supplements:
- Easy way to Increase Protein in your diet – when people ask me for protein powder recommendations, I always recommend collagen. Most protein powders can be filled with unnecessary ingredients and are extremely hard to digest. Collagen is a simple ingredient that packs a powerful punch.
- Healthier Hair, Radiant Skin, Stronger Nails – collagen supplements are known to improve the health and strength of hair, skin, and nails. You may notice faster hair and nail growth, clearer complexion/less wrinkles, and less brittle/broken nails.
- Relieve Joint Pain & Muscle Tightness- after all, collagen is responsible for the strength of our bones. Taking collagen supplements can improve your pain and help make exercise routines better. It’s also important to mention that an anti-inflammatory diet may support this too!
Here’s how to incorporate the supplement into your diet:
- Add a scoop to:
- Morning cup of coffee
