collagen bffThe #1 reason people’s skin looks aged is because it loses collagen, the protein that makes up skin, bones, tendons, muscles, and just about everything else in your body.  It gives skin suppleness plus keeps it taught, yet inflammation, free radicals and aging destroy it and causes us to look older and aged.

The goal with most women is to preserve collagen and even stimulate it if possible.  The golden rule you should follow is inflammation down antioxidants up!  However, people are prone to vices.   Therefore, things like smoking, alcohol, caffeine, sunburns, stress, even toxins and lack of sleep all contribute to crepey worn skin, making you look older, effecting not just how you look but sometimes your self-esteem too.

Aging can be hard as it is, but no one wants to look it on top of it.  Enter collagen.  Your body naturally produces collagen but not forever.  Once you hit 40, it dramatically decreases.  Collagen makes up 30% of protein found in your whole body, and 70% of the protein in your skin.

But don’t just take my word for it.  Let the facts speak for themselves.

  1. Better Sleep. 


    Glycine, an element of collagen, plays a crucial role in brain function.Recent studies show it’s linked to less insomnia and more mental acuteness during waking hours.Taking collagen not only helps your ability to fall asleep, but it can also improve mental sharpness and memory capacity too. Therefore, taking collagen about an hour before bed ups your chances of a better night’s sleep.

  2. Better Digestion. 


    Taking collagen can help reduce the impact of poor gut health and gut diseases such as leaky gut, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s and IBS. It’s also excellent at soothing the lining of your digestive tract and allows your body to break down protein and fat much easier, leading to less sugar cravings, and a healthier happier gut overall.

  3. Weight Loss.


    If you’re not already inspired to take it, this one should do it.Packed with a whopping 18 grams of protein in only two scoops in powder form, collagen keeps you fuller longer which of course naturally equates to weight loss.

Collagen powder is tasteless and does not affect the taste of whatever you add it to.  Mix it into your morning coffee, a smoothie, tea, soup, stew, juice or anything else you feel like eating.  My suggestion:  Look for 100% grass-fed, pesticide-free, hormone-free, GMO-free collagen peptides at any online retailer or your local grocer.
