What is Collagen? Did you know there are many ways in which it can boost your health?
As the NY Skin Goddess, Im always sharing about you can build your own collagen by causing trauma to the skin, either with micro needling, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, any treatment that causes the skin to repair will boost your own collagen. Microneedling is actually called Collagen Induction Therapy!
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. Its found in our muscles, bones, skin and tendons. Its like the “glue” that helps hold the body together. It is what makes our skins elasticity and helps repair.
Like everything else…..as we age our collagen begins to slow down. Wrinkles, loss of skins elasticity and body aches and pains will occur naturally. Of course your diet, what you think, and all your habitual patterns, like smoking UGGH! lots of unprotected sun exposure, alcohol, lack of restful sleep all contribute.
What can you do to increase your collagen in a very simple way? A great way is to add bone broth to your diet. It is a lengthly process to make at home, today you can find it in the form of powder along with collagen powder to add to shakes!
Some facts, collagen is full of amino acids like arginine, glutamine, glycine, and proline. These amino acids our body produces naturally, however under stress or illness and the natural process of aging our bodies don’t produce enough. You can also find collagen in supplements. If you are purchasing it in powder form, make sure you get your powder from grass-fed pasture raised cows (no antibiotics or chemicals). Ingesting bone broth or using powder in shakes or soups will quickly absorb hence my mantra beauty from the inside out.
