As I said earlier in my Chocolate Dream Cake post, I’m absolutely in love with Perfect Keto’s brand new addition to their awesome line of products! It’s Chocolate Keto Collagen and it is beyond delicious. It tastes like yummy chocolate milk and each scoop is equivalent to 2 cups of bone broth collagen!
Just wait until you try these delicious cookies I created with it, I even went the extra mile and topped them with melted chocolate! I’m having so much fun creating recipes with this, it’s so versatile and oh so yummy!
Why is collagen so important?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It’s found in our bones, skin, muscles, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons.
The amount of collagen in our body decreases as we age. By 25, collagen levels are decreased at a rate of 1.5% a year. By 40, collagen is depleted even faster than it is produced! At 60, OVER HALF of the body’s collagen has been depleted!
Here’s just a FEW of the amazing benefits you’ll receive by consuming collagen . . .
Collagen is a great source of protein and studies show that collagen protein consumed at breakfast are 40% more satiating than other proteins (such as whey or soy) and can correlate to a 20% reduction of food intake later in the day!
Glycine plays an important role in the neurotransmitters within the brain. Recent research shows that glycine improves sleep quality who have difficulty sleeping.
Joint and Bone Health
The amino acids in collagen, glycine and proline help to repair tissue, lessen inflammation and provide relief from joint pain, similar to taking cortisone or ibuprofen. The glycine speeds wound healing, helps stiff joints and promotes recovery.
Collagen soothes and heals the digestive tract and helps repair the mucous lining. It also helps break down the protein and fat from foods, making it easier for the body to digest.
Overall Skin Health
Collagen ensures cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of the skin. It is primarily composed of the amino acids glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline. These particular amino acids are shown to reduce the signs of aging.
Glycine and proline help repair tissue, lessen inflammation and even shorten recovery after exercise. These amino acids in collagen also aids athletic performance and helps to maintain and restore muscle mass.
These benefits definitely speak for themselves and I highly recommend that everyone supplements with collagen to provide plenty of this vital protein.
