You may have seen the word collagen popping up lately in health and nutrition articles, but what the heck is it exactly?
Collagen is a special type of protein in the body that is particularly important in having healthy joints, skin, hair, nails, and digestion. According to natural medicine guru Dr. Josh Axe, “it’s the ‘glue’ that helps hold the body together.”
Our natural production of collagen slows down as we age — even faster if we eat a high sugar diet or smoke cigarettes.
Consuming high quality bone broth is an awesome way to ingest collagen, but did you know that it also comes in powder form?
My favourite brand is this Bulletproof Upgraded Collagen, which I order online at The Canadian Vitamin Shop.
It dissolves easily into both hot and cold liquids, making it the perfect complement for tea, coffee, or my favourite — a green morning smoothie.
It’s never been easier to give your skin, hair, nails, joints, and tummy the quality collagen they’ve been craving. What are you waiting for?
Now I want to hear from you. Do you use drink bone broth or use a collagen supplement? If so, what brand do you use and what positive changes have you noticed? Be sure to leave a comment below.
