COLLAGEN

Updated: Feb 18, 2021

Over the past 12 months I have made a conscious decision to fuel my body with nutrients, goodness and supplements which enable me to feel my best. That is when I stumbled across collagen. Collagen? What is it?


A third of our protein within our body is known as Collagen, ergo it is the most vital piece of our human connective tissue. From the age of 25 our bodies begin to decrease its natural production. This is called ageing. By deciding to start taking collagen, you're making the conscious choice to help improve the quality and composition of your hair, skin, nails, tendons, bones, joints, ligaments and gut health.


According to Berg they did numerous studies on this supplement and found it to be helpful in relieving pain and mobility for osteoarthritis sufferers specifically in the knee region. Lin et al. (2020) also found considerable advancements in the skin, primarily its moisture, brightness, wrinkles, pores and pigmentation. There is more evidence on the benefits of collagen below.


After vigorous investigation and research I came across the brand Kissed Earth. The ethos of their brand is delivering the highest of quality products without adding fillers, synthetics or artificial ingredients. Plainly, they "are committed to using the cleanest and most powerful foods from nature".


As you will see I advocate for numerous products of theirs. However, below is their Brilliance Collagen. It is 100% Pure Bovine Hydrolised Collagen Peptide Powder. I can say hand to heart the improvements in all regions have been astronomical. Feel free to contact me for more information. If you like me want to make an investment in your health, my advice to you is try it for yourself HERE!*


*Please note that if you are on medication or have certain health issues, it would be advised to speak with your general practitioner prior to commencing.
