What are the benefits of collagen for your skin, hair & nails?
Collagen is a protein that is found in the human body.
It is what gives our skin, hair and nails their strength and elasticity.
Collagen can be obtained from animal or plant sources.
Animal sources include: bone broth, beef, chicken, eggs, fish and lamb.
Plant sources include: raw and cooked vegetables, mushrooms and seaweed.
Collagen is a natural component of the body which contributes to the support of healthy joints, connective tissue, skin, hair and blood vessel walls.
Collagen levels decrease with age due to diminished production or increased breakdown of collagen fibers.
A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition noted "that people who regularly consumed beans, peas and lentils may have a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease".
