Maybe I will be cursed by all the cosmetics manufacturers and all the collagen creams in the ads. I am not scared. Read it, it’s simple. And surely some of you will especially like it.
What does collagen actually do?
Well he… doesn’t really do anything. Like a fat guy (his molecule is quite large) he just sits in certain places and does nothing.
However, the fact that it does nothing does not mean that it does not have extremely important and responsible functions!
It is the main protein that builds various connective tissues, cartilage and tendons. It is also essential for the structure of the skin. Without it, the skin forms wrinkles, loses its elasticity and beauty. And with advancing age, its quantity inevitably decreases.
There is a body of scientific evidence for some nutritional supplements and meal replacements that stimulate collagen production. At home, we all have breakfast with such a meal replacement. Can you guess who?
Advertisements flood us with all sorts of claims about various cosmetic products containing collagen. Well, there’s nothing wrong with containing it, but so what? There is no way to implant in the place of natural collagen, even if they are smeared in the right place.
And how can we produce the collagen we need ourselves?
It’s simple. You don’t need degrees and titles to figure it out.
With the food. First we must provide the substances that build it, and at the same time the substances that stimulate its production. Because it decreases with age.
And we all want to age gracefully, don’t we?
First we need to make sure we get enough Vitamin C. It is crucial for collagen production and will stimulate it. There is nothing to worry about, even if we exceed the daily norms – it does not accumulate and the excess will be thrown out of our excretory system.
And how to secure the necessary substances for its construction?
By eating foods containing collagen. Yes, indeed… it won’t “deploy” where it needs to directly from the mouth, it will first break down in our stomach, but it will already have everything it needs to be synthesized again, right where it’s needed.
Such foods are those that contain bone broth. Smart people say it’s better to make it from herbivore bones. My personal layman’s opinion is that this is a nod to the modern fads of vegetarians and vegans.
I can hardly contain myself anymore – how can I not please the tripe-stew lovers?
Well, there are some subtleties. I can think of four:
- It should be home-made or at least certainly without a buckle.
- Not to abuse the beer around her.
- I know what a temptation it is to have a piece of warm bread or a bun, but… a little bit, please.
- One serving is enough for one meal.
There are many other foods that help collagen production:
- Fish and fish oil
- Leafy vegetables
One peculiarity about fish and fish oil – if you do not know their origin, do not abuse them – they can contain heavy metals (lead, mercury, etc. – the world’s oceans are already quite saturated with them).
I don’t need to tell you why I recommend Herbalifeline Max?
And for those who need collagen for younger, better-looking skin, I highly recommend Herbalife Nutrition’s Collagen Skin Booster – a proven and highly effective product!
