Dr. Josh Axe: What is COLLAGEN? | Thrive Market


Collagen is probably more important than people could ever realize for our overall health. And when people aren’t getting collagen, and the right type of collagen, their body really suffers for it. Think about how many people today have joint-related issues. Well, your joints, your connective tissue, they’re all made up of collagen. Our skin, hair, nails, gut lining, our arterial walls, and a lot more areas than that, are all made up of collagen. And our body needs building blocks of what makes up collagen- it’s proline, glycine, hydroxyproline. Those are amino acids that make up collagen. And if we’re not getting those amino acids in our body, our body is missing the building blocks to regenerate and create these new healthy cells and tissue. So, we need to be getting collagen every single day. Our number one source of collagen is bone broth. Bone broth contains not only collagen, but three amazing other super nutrients called glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid, and these are known as more collagen boosters, supporting your body in producing more of its own collagen. And they’re especially good for your joints, your gut. We know a big part of your immune system is located in your gut as well. But how many people are getting bone broth like we should be every single day? Here’s the truth, is that I’ve made bone broth hundreds of times, but it takes time. It can be difficult, like, my wife Chelsea and I used to drive, you know, about 40 minutes south so we could buy our organic bones. And we would make it, but then we’d drink it all in two days and run out. But when we were able to get bone broth in a powder form, I didn’t have to make it every day. And it’s just as good as real broth. I think it’s important, when people are buying collagen, just like people want to take a multivitamin, They also want to get multiple types of collagen, because our own bodies are made up of multiple types of collagen. Type 1 and 3 collagen come from beef broth or beef hides, which is really good for your skin, hair, nails, and bones. Type 2 collagen is found only in chicken soup, or chicken bone broth specifically, and that has an amazing effect on our gut and our joints. That’s the thing I get excited about is, I used to put my patients on bone broth cleanses and the results were incredible. The problem was, it was just too time-consuming for most people’s schedules. So when we were able to create products like multi-collagen protein, people could start getting these super foods every day and completely transform their health.
