Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, especially type 1 collagen. It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells.

It also can help with the strength of our bones and tendons. As we age our bodies produce less and less collagen. Signs of aging begin to occur such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Eating a diet high in sugar, smoking and high amounts of sun exposure – also contribute to depleting collagen levels. The good news is we can help replace what our bodies are not producing by taking collagen supplements and consuming foods rich in collagen such as bone broth.
