Collagen! One of my favorite supplements right now. Collagen is a protein our bodies use in our connective tissues - muscle, skin, bone, tendons, the list goes on. There are at least 16 different types of collagen but the vast majority of collagen in our bodies is type I, II and III. Type I is in our hair, skin, nails, bones, and tendons. Type II is mostly in cartilage and type III is in bone marrow.
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which leads to aging (think wrinkles and painful joints). By adding a collagen supplement to our daily routine we can improve skin’s appearance, reduce pain in joints by keeping tendons healthy, grow hair and nails longer and stronger and more!! I’ve been using @bowmar_nutrition collagen for a couple months and my joints hurt less and I’m able to have more intense workouts! (I’m only 26, this shouldn’t be an issue to begin with, but that’s life) My nails and hair are strong and healthy too.
Collagen is good for dogs (and all animals) too! My dog is 9 years old and when we brought her home from the shelter a month ago she struggled getting up and down the stairs or up on the couch. I immediately started giving her a collagen supplement and now she’s a whole new dog - she plays, she runs, she jumps and she goes up stairs without any issues! It’s been amazing to see how much positive impact one supplement has had on her quality of life!
Currently I drink @sarah_bowmar clear skin cocktail once a day, usually with dinner and it’s so good. The “cocktail” is made up of BCAAs (I use the apple cider flavor), greens (to get all those veggies in) and collagen. 😋 a very easy and tasty way to get in the supplement every day!
