We found it! The MAGIC PILL - Collagen!
We’ve searched high and low for this magical pill, only to find that our body produces it naturally!
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, making up the connective tissues in your bones, ligaments, and organs, including your skin. It’s what gives strength and structural integrity to your skin, keeping it firm, elastic, bouncy, supple, and younger-looking!
No wonder collagen supplements are always a hot topic, especially among us who are slowly being robbed of our youth by the unforgiving aging process.
We actually begin to age in our 30s, losing the precious collagen that gives us that youthful glow. But the signs of aging only become visible in our 40s— wrinkles, crow’s feet, the 11s between our brows, saggy jowls, and those chiseled cheekbones we love so much but are actually a sign of collagen loss.
Needless to say, we always seem to reach for collagen supplements that— spoiler alert—don’t even work!
Hear us out on this:
Nutrient absorption happens in our small intestines, which have teeny tiny gaps that allow nutrients from food to go into the bloodstream and throughout the body.
Now, collagen protein has giant molecules that don't fit through the gaps. So, our gut has to break the collagen down into its amino acids, which are small enough to be absorbed into your blood.
In other words, the blood delivers amino acids (not collagen) to your skin, and they don’t carry age-reversing benefits.
So instead of taking collagen from animal guts and carcasses disguised as pearl-white collagen powders, help your body improve its own collagen production.
Here’s how you can make your own collagen more naturally.
