4 Reasons You Should Be Taking Collagen

4 Reasons You Should Be Taking Collagen

Collagen is a protein that's naturally found in our bones, skin and our connective tissue, but after our mid-twenties our bodies stop making it. We lose about 1-2% collagen every year thereafter which is why you'll notice a decrease in things such as skin elasticity and and joint mobility.

Here are 4 reasons you should start adding this protein into your diet:

  1. Skin, hair and nails will have a healthier looking appearance.
  2. Joint and bone health will improve, increasing mobility.
  3. Digestive health will improve as collagen assists with healing leaky gut, Celiac disease and Crohn's disease.
  4. Collagen aids in healing connective and muscle tissues so it reduces your recovery time after workouts.

Aim for 2 servings a day (4 tablespoons) for optimal results.

For busy moms on the go like me, it's 1 serving in my morning green tea and 1 serving in my protein shake.
