There’s a lot of talk about collagen these days. So, I decided to write about collagen, what it is and what is the best kind to take. And WHY WE NEED IT!
Collagen is a protein. It’s found in the connective tissues, skin, bones, ligaments and cartilage. Collagen is also the protein found in the dental tissues. Collagen also forms the periodontal ligament which attaches the teeth into their bony sockets.
Wow, we can already see why collagen is sooo important!
As we age, collagen production slows down. Our bodies produce less. This is why there are so many symptoms that show us we are lacking collagen. Saggy skin, dry skin, wrinkles, intestinal issues, dental issues, degenerative joint diseases, lung diseases, bone diseases. Just to mention a few of the symptoms of needing collagen.
Another benefit of collagen, is that it modulates cortisol. Cortisol levels, when high, cause us to have sleeping issues. Cortisol is regulated by the adrenal glands. Most people have adrenal gland problems as we live in stressful environments.
Wow, this is quite the list. Do you think we need collagen supplementation? I sure do.
I started researching collagen supplements. There are many on the market. Which ones’ work? Which ones’ are the best?
There are many collagen supplements in the form of pills. Bone broth is also another form of ingesting collagen. I have made many of my own batches, but did not glean the results I was looking for. I think I would have to drink a lot more than I would like to get the results I was looking for. I also know that when you can find a supplement in liquid form, there is a higher bio-availability for the product. So, I started looking for a liquid source. Then I found a liquid collagen which also includes hyaluronic acid. Collagen, when from a natural source, naturally contains chondroitin and glucosamine. These are well-known for helping joints. And, the product I found is from a natural source. Non-GMO, organic.
I started researching the results people were having with this product. There wasn’t a bad review. I spoke with a woman who has been drinking this for several years. She had fibromyalgia. She won’t live without it. Another with hip joint issues, no longer considering a hip replacement. The stories go on.
There are different types of this liquid gold for specific uses. This is wonderful because we each have different needs. There is even a product for your pets (dogs, cats and horses).
