Bone broth collagen! Hmmm doesn’t sound very appealing does it? Well here is an easy fix that makes drinking this a breeze! SMOOTHIES! I add one scoop into my smoothies in the morning and it taste amazing. SO you might be wondering what’s they hype? Why drink bone broth collagen anyway? First off, let’s start by talking about collagen.
What is Collagen
Did you know that in your mid-twenties your body actually stops producing collagen? Instead we begin to produce an enzyme that breaks collagen down called collagenase. YIKES. And the worst part is that it doesn’t regenerate. Research shows that consuming collagen can actually help increase skin elasticity and aid your skin in healing and repairing. Although we can’t consume enough collagen to keep up with the rate of collagen breakdown that comes with aging it does help! There are other things you can do too like using retinoids and having collagen stimulating skin care treatments like microneedling to help combat the signs of aging! Now let’s talk about bone broth and why everyone is talking about it.
Bone Broth Benefits
Bone broth is exactly what is sounds like. Broth made from bones and connective tissue. It contains high amounts of nutrients, vitamins, and even collagen. Bone broth can also help protect your joints. It’s a good source of protein called gelatin that actually breaks down into collagen which is not only good for your skin, but for your body too! Bone broth also contains amino acids that help with digestion and inflammation. In other words, it’s really good for your gut. Since bone broth is a source of protein, it can also help with weight loss. If this isn’t enough to make you want to try it, I don’t know what will!
