What is collagen?
Collagen is a type of protein found in many parts of our bodies including hair, nails, skin, bones, muscles, tendons, our blood vessels and our digestive system. Collagen has many benefits to us, and unfortunately, as we age, our collagen production slows down dramatically. This results in wrinkles, aches and pains throughout our bodies, a lack of hair density, skin problems and even leaky gut. Below are 3 benefits of collagen supplementation that can help you give your body the tools it needs to continue to thrive!* Also, follow us on Instagram (@cbsupplements) for more!
How Does Collagen Help?
Tendon & Ligament Recovery
Collagen will absolutely not guarantee injury from not happening (we can’t make that claim!), but individual results seem to suggest that collagen supplementation throughout the day has powerful abilities to help our bodies rebuild and recover faster.
Improve Hair, Skin & Nails
Have you noticed that as we age, our skin becomes looser, we develop wrinkles, our skin starts to discolor, our hair may start falling out and our fingernails/toenails need to be cut less often? This is in part due to collagen production declining as we get older, in additional to other lifestyle factors contributing to the aging process.
Fight Against Leaky Gut
So how does collagen fight against leaky gut? Short answer is that collagen protein helps form connective tissue in the lining of the digestive system that effectively closes the holes in a leaky gut. Collagen has been shown to heal damaged cells in the intestinal track by infusing essential amino acids found in the profile of collagen protein to the stomach lining.
