Collagen is in, do you need it?
Updated: Oct 22, 2021
I bet you have heard about collagen lately, whether it be a friend mentioning her home-made recipe of "Bone Broth" or taking supplements or why your body would benefit from this amazing amino acids. As we get older our collagen production declines and we need an adequate amount to protect our bones, joints and skin. Who doesn't want that baby soft skin? Or joints that don't crack? Um..me I do!! Collagen is a protein that accounts for 30 percent of the human protein, as part of our connective tissue it helps to regenerate new cells and promote firmness. I have made Bone Broth a few times, I can't say I love it, but after my foot injury last September, I thought, what the heck? I'm ready to speed this healing process. I don't have time to make bone broth frequently so I researched other ways to get the amino acids that my body was lacking. I'm taking the easy route this time and opted for some yummy gummies to "test" this collagen theory. This is not a sponsored post, but if Olly sees this and would like to send me a bottle, I would not oppose. HA!
Do you take collagen supplements or collagen protein powder? I wanna know!
