Collagen for the youth of our body
When we think collagen, we think health and beauty of the skin. However, collagen brings even more benefits to the body.
Collagen is an extremely important structural protein found throughout the body. It plays a vital role in maintaining elasticity and youthfulness. Its fibers are the main constituents of bones, joints (tendons and ligaments) and blood vessels (arteries and veins). Collagen is also found in the cornea of the eye, the gastrointestinal wall, the lungs, the liver, the kidneys, the heart and the intervertebral discs.
Collagen is the cornerstone of our body, it is its quality and its formation (fibroblast) that determines the health of our tissues.
Aging, stress, inflammation, poor diet, lack of exercise, environmental toxins, all influence the maintenance of healthy collagen in our body.
The most apparent signs of collagen deficiency are :
- Less firm and sagging skin, wrinkles appearing on it
- Hair loss, fragility
- Brittle nails and slow growth
- Less bone resistance
- Joint problems: tendons, cartilage and ligaments
“Collagen doesn't just prevent wrinkles, it also promotes good health throughout the body. » Dr. Fuller Albright.
You can reduce the degradation of your body's collagen resources and stimulate its production by adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle, with essential nutrient supplementation (particularly vitamin C).
If you opt for pure collagen supplementation, it is very important to know if it is degraded during its passage through the digestive system to be available to the body. Knowing this, we recommend collagen from the company Organika. It is highly bioavailable, assimilable and soluble, thanks to its natural peptides (chain of amino acids).
The collagen in Organika, Enhanced Collagen comes from grass-fed cows. Organika's Enhanced Collagen is free of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE-(mad) cow disease (no hormones or antibiotics), no artificial sweeteners or genetically modified (GMO) ingredients.
Add collagen to your daily routine for overall good health!
