We all want to look and feel good but often don’t have the time with so many things to tick off on our daily checklist. It becomes harder and harder to make sure we are getting all we need in our daily meals.
Drum roll … COLLAGEN!
Collagen is something that nourishes your body from the inside – out. Think about this analogy… picture an arid and parched garden that was yearning for water after being exposed to weeks of extreme sun exposure. Now imagine drops of rain bursting through the clouds and quenching the garden’s thirst. As time goes by the garden becomes luscious and full of life again. Collagen acts in a similar way!
Collagen is the most plentiful protein in your body. It has various important roles including helping provide structure to your skin as well as healthy joints. Collagen is one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen also assists with thicker hair, strong nails, reduced osteoarthritis – the benefits of collagen are endless! As you age your body produces less, as well as a lower quality, of collagen. One of the visible signs of this is your skin, which becomes less firm and supple.
Collagen comes in both pill and powder forms. The powder form of collagen is extremely versatile – add it into your early morning coffee, powerhouse smoothies, tangy savoury soups or your decadent desserts.
Thrive stocks several collagen variants like vegan protein powder (a natural collagen booster), collagen creamers and hot chocolate, collagen with superfoods and potent antioxidants and many more. Pop into any of our Thrive stores and speak to our wellness assistants to find out more.
