Because I’m a science nerd and love to research and learn all things pertaining to our bodies.
[If I had a picture of me from junior high and high school lying around I would post it right here for you to enjoy; and prove how nerdy I have always been! haha! ]
I have a SUPER COOL collagen supplement (the hydrolyzed collagen II) that I LOVE. It is supported with additional vitamins and minerals including hyaluronic acid which encourages your body to create its OWN intra-cellular collagen! It has great reviews and has helped SO MANY with joint pain. My own back pain and leg pain is literally gone. My hair is thicker than it has been since before I had kids, and my nails are stronger and grow like crazy.
Collagen. What is collagen? Collagen is the MAIN, STRUCTURAL PROTEIN found in skin and other connective tissues. Okay, let’s back up. What is connective tissue and what does it have to do with my hair, skin or nails? You ask, so I shall answer!!! Connective tissues binds (or connects) parts of the body and is found in bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, lymph and your blood. What would we be without our bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons? A puddle of goop on the floor, right?! Just like the devastating situation where the condo collapsed in Miami. It’s coming out that now that there was all kinds of foundation issues. Rebar was exposed and rusted over. Absolutely horrible. Just like buildings need a good, STRONG, foundation, we, humans, do too!! When we hit our 20s, our bodies slow waaaay down on collagen production.
If you go to Walmart and just find some random collagen, most likely you’re not going to notice a difference with your hair, skin and nails. This is because you need a SPECIAL kind of Collagen and it is called Hydrolyzed Collagen 2. This is the ONLY collagen protein peptide that REMAINS as a collagen and does not break down into any other protein. Any random collagen will break down into whatever protein that your body will decide what to do with. The HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN 2 will NOT break down into anything. It remains as an intact collagen protein peptide ALL the WAY into YOUR CELLS. Your cells make up all the tissues: including your CONNECTIVE TISSUES.
If you NEED this collagen NOW for arthritic knees, ankles, neck-any joint at all, LET ME KNOW!! If you are interested in learning MORE and curious about where to find this collagen, send me an email!!! I would love to help you out. I also have some coupons for $10 off. 😉
