Today, I want to introduce, for many of you, a new protein!
I have partnered with Bulletproof to share with you almost everything you want to know about collagen protein. I am also excited to show you some ways to enjoy Bulletproof collagen protein.
So, what is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It provides strength for your skin, muscles, skin, cartilage, blood, bones and ligaments. However, there is one small problem, collagen production starts to decrease at age 25. So, supplementing with hydrolyzed collagen could be a useful strategy to counteract the changes associated with skin aging, bones and joints.
What is in collagen that is magical? Collagen has the highest amount of the amino acid glycine which is a conditionally essential amino acid needed as a precursor to make your own collagen. There are studies that have shown that Supplementing with collagen can benefit with skin health, relieve joint pain and prevent bone loss. Therefore, it’s important that you get enough glycine to support your body’s production of collagen.
There is also an unflavored Bulletproof collagen protein that I love to use, not only to boost my protein on my already-prepared dishes, but also to provide an excellent amount of collagen. I love adding to my morning coffee or soups, stews, oatmeal and more! Another important fact to know is that collagen also contains proline and hydroxyproline, two amino acids that have been found to stimulate your body’s own production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, another important component of the skin and joints.
In the video above, I show you how to make a Boosting Skin Health Smoothie which is another delicious way to get in your collagen.
