Why Add Collagen to Your Regimen: A Doctor’s Explanation of Benefits
I always am so excited to share so many of the amazing benefits of our Clean Sourced Collagens with you and so many of my patients, because collagen is a powerhouse protein that can restore our energy. It can restore our youthfulness. It has great superficial benefits like reducing wrinkles and improving our skin tone and improving any tears and kind of changes in our cellular tissue in our skin. But most importantly, it has extensive benefits inside our body.
If you’re looking to heal and really create a more youthful body from the inside out, collagen has to be at the foundation of your program. I’ll share with you a few reasons.
First of all, we have five of the core collagens in this powdered format. The second reason I really love this is its powdered component allows you to mix it in a hot beverage like a tea or coffee. You can add it to yogurt or a nut yogurt, a smoothie. We even bake with it in my household. You can add this in on the daily to support good, clean cellular turnover of your tissue cells.
A Specific Protein Type That Must be Outsourced
But most importantly, the protein in collagen – collagen is a specific protein type – the protein needed by your body, there’s only certain forms of protein that are accessible for your body to use to create more supple, stronger ligaments, tendons, assorted soft tissue, and even bone, and the collagen protein is what is required. You have to outsource that protein. That means, simply, you have to add that into your daily diet. Some people will add bone broths and others may eat more animal-based organ meats and soft tissue meats or cuisine.
Collagen Supports Soft Tissue
But for many of us, we choose collagen powders as our way to get this very potent form of amino acids with protein that will power up our soft tissue. It helps relieve joint pain. It can repair certain ligament and soft tissue tears, and makes, actually, our tissue more supple and more youthful.
Collagen Supports & Improves Digestive Health
One of the things that we found is that digestively, collagen can help improve IBS. If you think about all of the skin and soft tissue on the outside of our body, as well as on the inside of our body, collagen can benefit all of those tissue types.
If you are dealing with let’s say an ulcer or maybe a hiatal hernia in your stomach, collagen can be beneficial for that because it can help support the tissue of the stomach, the area and the soft tissue in and around that stomach lining. We also see with digestive imbalances, it can help improve the single-cell intestinal lining.
Collagen Benefits Heart Health
We also see epithelial benefits, and that is simply a type of tissue that is in the lining of our vascular channel. We have 26 different types of epithelial tissue types. Well, collagen can benefit that as well.
For individuals who are looking to improve their heart health, that want to have a more youthful appearance, that want to have a more youthful feeling body, that want to have more flexibility in their joints and range of movement and motion, collagen can benefit that.
Collagen Aids in Increased Bone Density and Remineralization
And for many of us, women particularly, who are concerned about osteopenia or osteoporosis – that’s a staging of bone deterioration, osteopenia is the beginning. Osteoporosis and varying stages of bone deterioration, this comes with natural aging. It comes with natural hormonal imbalances.
But one of the things that we see is one of the specialized types of collagen that we have in our collagen powders – we have five different types – that collagen can help increase and support bone density and the bone remineralization, which is amazing. Who would think that a protein can actually do that?
But we need to add this in. It has to be a supplemental component.
Supplementing with a Clean Collagen Source is Key
Either we’re getting it from food and/or we’re getting it from an alternative source like our Clean Sourced Collagens, which leads me to recommend our collagen because it is cleanly sourced. It is a clean form of collagen.
It is not going to be filled with assorted chemicals and laden with assorted harmful ingredients or carcinogens or toxins that are going to pollute your body. Instead, we cleanly source it. We have a whole QC process. We have third-party vendors that check our manufacturing process and it is absolutely clean. Cleanest on the market, in my opinion.
One of the things that we know is that when you put clean things in, you can actually enhance that process of accelerating the bone density and the turnover of cells and the support of our skin tissue and our soft tissue and our internal tissue, because the body is not being burdened with these excess toxins and chemicals.
Who Should Supplement with Collagen and How?
Overall, I recommend our Clean Sourced Collagens to everybody. Especially if you are over the age of 30, it really is important that you add this into your regimen daily.
Now, there are a few different ways to get this into your body. I’ve recommended a few here… in a hot liquid beverage like a coffee or tea, a smoothie, yogurt, nut yogurt, applesauces, assorted kind of blends.
You can also cook with it. We have a wonderful recipe on the back of our collagen bags that also gives you another alternative. Do check out the ingredients there and the mixing instructions. But importantly, it is critical you at least get it once a day.
For some of my patients that are in the post-surgical category or are dealing with any type of bone or joint damage, maybe it’s from a particular autoimmune disorder or aging or after injury from several decades ago. You might want to add in a second dose.
Play around with how you can add this into your daily regimen. There’s a lot of versatility, but just know the benefits are numerous. Often collagen gets billed as a resource that just has superficial benefits. We see those starting in two weeks, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and a really healthy, youthful appearance.
The same thing happens inside. In two to four weeks, you’re going to start to see and notice and feel an amazing difference by adding Clean Sourced Collagens into your daily regimen.
