So there is a lot of talk about Collagen right now. I wanted to do some research because a lot of my clients are starting to put it in their morning coffee. What I found out was pretty positive.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is 75% of our skin. It is the glue that holds everything together. Bones, joints, muscle, skin, hair, nails, eyes and organs. The most fascinating thing to me was that it also protects the lining of our gut. The reason why this was important is because if our gut is not functioning properly, it has a negative effect on our hair.
As we age we produce less Collagen, which leads to saggy skin, joint pain, cellulite and wrinkles. (Not fun things)
What Food makes Collagen?
Bone Broth ~Eggs ~ Dairy ~ Fish ~ Meat ~ Kale ~ Broccoli ~ Cauliflower ~ Beans & Lentils ~ oranges ~ bell peppers ~ Pumpkin seeds ~ pistachios ~ vitamin C
The studies that I read were of Athletes that had taken it and after 4 weeks they noticed less joint pain. Another study showed after 4 weeks, people with Skin Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis saw less inflammation and had less symptoms.
My clients that I have seen great results in their skin and hair were taking supplements.
Please purchase a high quality product when buying.
I just started taking the Marine Vital Protein Collagen because of the results that I am seeing. And this is what I am recommending to my clients.
In my video I tell a couple stories about what I have noticed. Leave a comment on what you think about collagen.
