Boosts the condition of skin, hair, nails and teeth. TRUE
It is a fact unfortunately that as you age your body produces less and less collagen resulting in fine lines and wrinkles, dry, brittle hair, weak nails and aching joints. Collagen production starts to slow down while you’re in your twenties thus it’s advisable to start supplementing your diet with collagen before the collagen-based structures in your body have had a chance to weaken and break down.
Foods like chicken and bone broth have collagen. TRUE
There are foods such as chicken, eggs and bone broth that can provide collagen too, but a more convenient method is to use a hydrolyzed form, a collagen powder, as its easier for your body to absorb.
So including it in your diet is simple, eat more collagen filled foods and mix the powder into yogurt or a smoothie or just stir it into a cup of tea or coffee.
A tip from the Be Bright team: To enhance the absorption of hydrolyzed collagen powder and speed up the rebuilding of your own collagen, take a daily dose of Vitamin C.
