What is collagen? It’s a protein that our body needs to support healthy bones,joints,skin, and hair just to mention a few. Collagen is essential for mobility. At around the age of thirty you start losing collagen and your body starts reacting to the loss by skin losing its elasticity for one thing. Your nails become weak or brittle. Your joints start hurting and your hair just doesn’t seem to grow and it starts thinning or breaking off. Those are just a few things that collagen is responsible for. Some other important things are connective tissue that supports your heart and all of your vital organs and tendons and ligaments that are also supported. There are a couple of ways to get collagen that I know of and one is Bone broth. You can make it yourself from the bones of a chicken or beef bones with seasoning and simmer theses bones for about 12 hrs. Let the liquid cool and you drink 1/4-1/2 cup of this broth daily. This is a lot of work but if you want to know what’s in your bone broth then I say make it or you can buy it in the supermarket already prepared. The other option is you can buy the collagen peptide powder and add 1-2 scoops to any hot liquid or cold liquid. You can add it to a smoothie or your hot cereal. Heck you can add it to soups or stews. You don’t even taste it. It’s unflavored. I started taking it because my hip would hurt occasionally at night while I slept and as soon as I started taking it in a matter of 2 days it wasn’t hurting any longer. I was taking it in the morning in my tea but I thought it may be more beneficial to do it in the evening with my tea. My skin looks clearer and my hair doesn’t seem to be falling out as much. Thank God!!! The kind I buy is called Vital Proteins collagen peptides. People I spoke to that had tried others seem to all love this brand. I’ll insert a picture so you can see what it looks like. Check it out. Give me your thoughts. Let me know how it works for you.
Like every thing else I blog about make sure you do your due diligence and check with your health care provider to see if it’s ok to take. I’m only telling you what works for me. Happy reading ~Sharon ~❤️
