Collagen and Aging

Collagen is the glue that holds the body together. Basically we need collagen everywhere in the body. It supports strengthen tendons that connective muscle to the bones, skin firmness, elasticity, shiny hair, teeth, nails, and internal organs, etc. It slows with age and prevents the absorption and spread of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, microorganisms, and cancerous cells. Therefore when the body is low in collagen, we can’t avoid sagging skin, bones weaken, muscle atrophy, cartilage cracks, and easy to get injured and hard to heal.

Cooking breaks down collagenous protein to gelatine that provides the amino acids. Therefore collagen is the best source to well-cushioned joints.

The best source of collagen: Bone broth
