If you haven’t heard about Collagen by now, you’ve either been living under a rock or you likely haven’t been scrolling social media. There is a massive hype around collagen right now… and for good reason.
Below are 5 Reasons why everyone is talking about it!
Improves gut health
It contains proline, glycine, and glutamic acid as well as minerals like calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. These are all incredible for healing the digestive tract and have been shown to soothe symptoms of IBS, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. It heals and seals gut lining. Leaky gut is becoming more and more common, along with people suffering from digestive issues in general. Supplementing with collagen daily will definitely boost gut healing.
Strengthens bones, joints and cartilage
Did you know our bones are 1/3 collagen and the cartilage is 2/3 collagen? This is another reason bones become brittle, our cartilage wears and our joints ache as we age. Studies have shown that patients who consumed collagen hydrolsate daily experienced a significant improvement with joint pain!
Suffer with joint pain? Maybe its time to try MOTHERKIND collagen!
Reduces wrinkles, cellulite and stretch marks
Around the age of 20, our bodies produce less and less collagen (this is especially true for women). We lose around 1-2% per year. By the time we’re 50, we’re not producing much at all. Loss of collagen leads to wrinkles, sagging skin, and sallow skin. You may have seen creams and topical products that contain collagen – which using is basically like setting your money on fire. Your skin cannot absorb collagen, it needs to be taken internally. One reason for both cellulite and stretch marks is a breakdown of connective tissue. It helps our skin remain firm and elastic. Remember that collagen is a protein, a protein that helps form the connective tissue of the skin. If it’s lacking or damaged, this will result in cellulite and/or stretch marks.
Boosts hair and nail growth
Hair and nails are made up mostly of keratin, which is a fibrous protein. Like any protein, it needs amino acids to grow. And what is rich in amino acids? You guessed it – collagen. Consider this: if you have an abundance of these amino acids, you will naturally have faster-growing hair and nails. If you lack these amino acids, which many people do, you will have slow growing, weak, brittle hair and nails.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to harm. If you get punched in the face (which I really hope you don’t, I’m just using this as an easy example), your face turns red and swells. That’s inflammation. If you have heart disease, that is the result of inflammation. If you drink alcohol or sodas regularly or bombard your body with toxins, your liver will become inflamed.
Inflammation is natural, but prolonged inflammation is anything but. One of the biggest steps we can do to reduce disease is to reduce inflammation. Eat well, stress less, sleep more and supplement with collagen!
