Want to Know a Secret to Young Skin and Joint Mobility?
No, it's not Botox ;) It's collagen! So what all the noise 🗣 about Collagen? For starters, it is the most abundant protein in our bodies and maybe one of the biggest game changers in combating human degeneration. Wahoo!!! Who doesn't want to look young and supple? Who doesn't want to eliminate joint inflammation, have stronger bones and heal your gut? Collagen is essential for healthy joints, hair 💁, nails 💅, skin, soothing the digestive track, and bone density to name a few. Our body makes collagen but by the time we are 40+ we are losing more collagen than our body can make. Supplementing with collagen peptides help stimulate the cells to make more collagen so you can remain limber and keep that baby 👶face longer! 💯🙌
Why take collagen as a supplement? Can't we get it from meat? Great questions! With the over processing of meat and our boneless skinless preferences we no longer get the needed levels of collagen from food. You can also boost your collagen intake by drinking bone broth regularly. I love to use bone broth when making soups. It makes them taste amazingly thick and hearty!! 🍲 Just 1 cup of bone broth can have 5-10 grams of protein depending on the brand. 😳 It also contains healthy fats. 💪Bonus: adding freshly grated ginger and garlic to warm bone broth can cure just about anything from a broken heart 💔 to the flu 😷
It is a good idea to use both 🐥 and 🐮 bone broth as chicken has majority type 2 collagen while beef has majority type 1 and 3.
There are many great collagen peptide supplements on the market and bone broth can be easily found in the freezer/ fridge/ and even shelf sections of the grocery store. I'm addicted to the Vital Proteins Brand - all of their products. I put 2 scoops in my morning coffee or smoothie every day. I can't think of a better way to start the day than filling my body with a caffeine collagen boost. Victory! (This is also a GREAT Mother's Day gift!)
