What Is Collagen Protein?
Collagen protein is something that’s in your connective tissues. It’s in structures like your hair, skin, nails and bones. It’s really the support your body needs for flexible joints, glowing skin, strong bones and nails.
Getting enough collagen protein is pretty difficult, especially as you age. And people simply don’t eat enough organ meat (I don’t blame them).
Your body only makes enough to keep your body running, and as you age it produces less.
So what you have to do is supplement it. I personally take mine in powder form.
Here are some natural ways you can boost your own collagen production:
- Vitamin C
- Hyaluronic acid
- Whey protein
The Three Main Types Of Collagen
- Collagen Type 1
- Collagen Type 2
- Collagen Type 3
Collagen Types 1 and 3 provide structure to skin. You can find this type of collagen in the Keto Collagen products, and you can put it in your coffee for example.
Type 2 collagen is for joint cartilage, as well as the cartilage in your ear and nose. The best way to get this type of collagen is through organic bone broth. I prefer the organic chicken bone broth.
As you age, you need to start supplementing your body with collagen protein. You definitely need to do this if you are over the age of 50, and even if you’re in your 40’s you need to consider it.
The fact of the matter is that after the age of 25, you are in a continuous cycle of losing collagen and muscle.
There’s very good science behind the importance of collagen and the supplementation of it. Even the vitamin doubters out there believe in supplementation of collagen protein.
The point is to keep your body supple as you age, and collagen protein can certainly help with that.
