Collagen has long been recognized for helping us build healthy hair and nails, but it is so much more than a beauty supplement. Here is how taking collagen can help you lose weight.
Releasing Your Fascia
Fascia is the connective tissue beneath our skin. It is a protein and the primary building block of fascia. Its primary job is to hold our muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments to our bones—but if fascia is unhealthy it can create a whole host of problems. From pain and decreased range of motion caused by fascial adhesions (masses of tight fascia) to creating cellulite. For best results, take your daily stretching up a notch.
Collagen Helps You Feel Full
Collagen is a protein so it will help you feel fuller faster and is proven to help suppress your appetite. Don’t overdo your collagen intake as just one or two supplements or powder servings a day is enough to do the trick. You can drink your collagen as bone broth or mix collagen powder into your smoothie, juice, water, or coffee.
As an added bonus increasing your collagen will also deliver the beauty benefits it is most well known for.
