Dr. Axe on the Benefits of Adding Collagen Powder to Your DietSeptember 18th, 2019
If you’ve ever struggled with joint discomfort, a lack of collagen may be to blame. According to Dr. Axe, our joints, connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, gut lining, and arterial walls are all made of collagen. “Our body needs collagen’s building blocks—proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline. If we’re not getting those amino acids, our body is missing the opportunity to regenerate and create new healthy cells and tissue.”
He recommends adding collagen to your diet on a daily basis and focusing on several types. “Type one and three collagen come from beef broth or beef hide, which is good for your skin, hair, nails, and bones. Type two is found in chicken soup or chicken bone broth, and has positive effects on our gut,” he shares.
One scoop of this multi collagen powder delivers 9 grams of protein, plus collagen from four different sources: bovine, fish, chicken, and egg. It’s completely odorless, tasteless, and mixes instantly with your favorite beverages, soups, and more.
