Are there any health benefits associated with taking collagen?
Or is it just another marketing tactic designed to get you to purchase expensive treatments and pricey skin lotions?
As you’ll see in today’s guide, there are actually seven science-backed health benefits of collagen — and they go way more than skin deep.
In addition to its beauty clout, we’ll be covering collagen’s lesser known health benefits as we explore:
- A short introduction to collagen
- How collagen affects your brain
- Collagen and heart health
- How collagen can heal a leaky gut
- Its ability to reduce joint, knee and back pain
- The best sources of collagen and how to add more to your keto diet
To start, here’s a brief overview of what collagen is so you can understand why it’s so important for your health.
Quick Brief on Collagen
Since this guide covered everything there is to know about collagen, I won’t spend too much time rehashing that lesson.
Here’s the skinny on collagen:
- It’s the most abundant protein found in your body. It’s also one of the most vital proteins your body needs to function.
- Collagen is the glue that holds your body together. Since it’s a major component found in your connective tissue, collagen maintains the structure and integrity of your skin, muscles, bones and tendons.
- It sends out important signals to your cells, which can help combat inflammation and repair damaged cells.
- Your collagen production declines naturally as you get older so you may need to consider supplementation to meet your required needs.
