This week I have a very special product to talk about! A must-have for women and men of all ages, our Herbs Online Shop Collagen Powder is a nutritional protein supplement for tissue repair and a helpful supplement in the weight loss process.
So what exactly is collagen and why do we need it? Collagen is the main structural protein in the body’s connective tissues, it is responsible for keeping skin soft and supple and can reduce wrinkles and dryness of the skin. Collagen is also beneficial in reducing joint pain and helping to support our body’s natural wear and tear as we grow older. For weight loss may help support satiety.
Our Herbs Online Shop Collagen Powder is dairy free, lactose free, gluten free and free from soy proteins, making it gentle on all tummies. It is also rich in hydroxyproline (also found in seeds, nuts and legumes and is an amino acid) and Type 1 and Type 3 Collagen. Our Collagen Powder a low reactive and low allergenic protein source, and is necessary for growth and development as well as being essential for growth and maintenance of muscle.
Some other special benefits of Collagen Powder include the magic it has on wound healing. Collagen acts as a foundation of the skin’s wound healing process, it helps to strengthen tissue as it repairs and helps the skin to heal quickly. The Collagen that we stock here at Herbs Online Shop is derived from bovine source with a neutral odor and flavour and are perfect for mixing into liquids with only 10g needed a day.
Other benefits of collagen include the effect collagen has on hair and nails as well as skin. By introducing collagen into your daily diet you can expect to see improvements in the quality of your skin (more moisture = less scaly skin!), dry hair becoming softer and silkier and nails becoming less brittle and breaking easily. If you are wanting to kick-start your day with some collagen why not make up my favourite Collagen Berry Smoothie? I have given this recipe to a few patients who say it has really made a difference in as little as a few weeks (and it tastes amazing!)
1/2 Cup frozen mixed berries
