As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, joint stiffness, and weaker bones, hair, and nails. The most effective approach to counteracting this process is to replenish collagen stores by consuming collagen in our diet or through high-quality collagen peptide supplements. When taken daily, collagen supplements can help reduce wrinkles, promote youthful, glowing skin, improve gut health, and strengthen bones and joints.
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our bodies. It makes up 90% of our body’s connective tissue, 90% of our organic bone mass, and 70% of our skin. Collagen helps our bodies build and repair muscle tissue, provides strength to our joints and ligaments, and helps prevent bone fractures. While our bodies naturally produce collagen, the production of collagen begins to decline starting as early as age 20. This slowing of collagen production leads to many of the classic signs of aging: fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, joint stiffness and pain, and brittle bones, hair, and nails. Fortunately, we can combat this process by consuming enough collagen in our diet and supporting our body’s natural collagen production. One of the most convenient options to add collagen to our diets is a high-quality, grass-fed collagen powder product. Along with taking a collagen supplement, we can also support our body’s natural collagen production by eating protein-rich foods along with foods rich in zinc, copper, and vitamin C.
When looking for collagen supplements, it’s important to choose a premium collagen from either grass-fed, pasture-raised cows or wild-caught fish that has been 3rd party tested for heavy metals and impurities. All Further Food collagen peptide supplements are rigorously tested for contaminants and impurities, independently lab verified, and made in cGMP facilities. Our bovine collagen is derived from the hides of grass-fed, pasture-raised cows from South America and our marine collagen comes from wild-caught North Atlantic codfish. For additional functional benefits, our flavored collagen powder products include the addition of adaptogenic mushrooms and taste delicious!
