This Collagen is one of my absolute favorite supplements and these capsules make it easy to use every single day! There are a lot of different collagen choices out there, and it can be really difficult to find a clean, high-quality source. That’s why I custom formulated my own hydrolyzed Collagen protein. It’s sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, and is also 100% non-GMO. Collagen is the most important and abundant structural protein in your body. Think of Collagen as the ‘glue’ that holds your body together. Your skin, bones, connective tissue, cartilage, and joints all depend on ample collagen to be healthy, strong, and flexible. Most of us cannot get enough Collagen from diets alone. Even those of us eating a clean, healthy, Paleo-inspired diet have trouble getting as much collagen as distant ancestors did, let alone enough for optimal health. Unless you’ve got an 8-quart crockpot simmering bone broth from grass-fed, antibiotic-free cow bones all day every day, then you are very likely in need of a high-quality Collagen supplement! Collagen is fantastic for those concerned with leaky gut. Collagen is full of amino acids and peptides that help maintain and promote optimal gut lining health. The cells lining your intestinal tract love this stuff, and so many of my patients report greater digestive comfort after using it. Supporting the gut lining is absolutely paramount for those concerned with autoimmunity, healthy thyroid function, and a balanced and normal inflammation response. Collagen is critical if you’re looking to optimize the health of your muscles, bones, and joints, as well as your hair, skin, and nails. It’s even more important after the age of 40 when your body’s Collagen production naturally declines. Why do they get wrinkles at the age of 40? Well, a lot of that has to do with not having enough Collagen to support skin! There are different types of Collagen out there, however, Type I & III are the most important to supplement with. My grass-fed, pasture-raised beef Collagen is pure, hydrolyzed Type I & III. These types lend all the great benefits to your skin, bones, hair, nails, and connective tissue. Collagen supports healthy weight management by optimizing lean muscle mass. It even helps curb sugar cravings by assisting with healthy insulin production and pancreatic function. My grass-fed, hydrolyzed Collagen is also rich in conditionally essential amino acids that many of us are lacking in, such as glycine, which supports a healthy mood and restful sleep. The capsules are convenient and easy to swallow - perfect for an active lifestyle. When I can’t make a smoothie, I take 6 capsules daily, 3 with lunch and 3 with dinner, and I’m set for the whole day! It’s never been easier for me to get the collagen my body so desperately needs.
