Collagen–My Rx for a Younger, Healthier, Sexier You!

Written by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci

If you’re over thirty, you’re likely to have a “THAT CAN’T BE ME” moment someday soon. It happens when you glance in the mirror or catch your reflection in a sliding glass door… and you say, “OMG. Who is that old person looking back at me?” If this happens to you, here’s what you need to know. Your skin is sending you an urgent message: HELP! What it needs right now, in addition to a healthy, low-carb diet, is collagen.

And guess what: The rest of your body is craving that collagen, too. Today, I want to talk about how collagen gives you great skin—and why that’s just the start of the story.

Collagen and your skin

Basically, collagen is the “glue” that holds your body together—and one of its jobs is to keep your skin strong, smooth, and firm. Unfortunately, once you hit thirty, your skin has less and less collagen each year. Eventually, there isn’t enough collagen in your skin to do the job… and that’s when you start to see wrinkles and sagging.

If you want to reverse this aging, a skin cream containing collagen can help. But to really make a difference, you need to mainline collagen to your skin cells from the inside. That’s why it’s crucial to drink bone broth—which contains the building blocks of collagen—or to take a collagen supplement every day. It’s my #1 prescription for de-aging your skin.

What collagen does for every cell in your body

Beautiful skin is great, but it isn’t the only gift that collagen gives you. In fact, this superfood can make you look and feel awesome all over. Here are just some of the things it does for you:

Collagen is rich in joint-healing glucosamine and chondroitin—two nutrients many doctors prescribe for joint pain. In fact, a 2015 study found that chondroitin outperformed the prescription drug Celebrex in treating knee osteoarthritis.

Collagen is packed with glycine—and glycine is one of the body’s most powerful detoxifiers, so it cleanses your cells and makes them vibrant. As a result, you’ll feel younger… and sexier, too! Glycine also  fights inflammation and helps keep your immune system working efficiently. Want more good news? Glycine is calming—and a dose of it before bedtime can even help you awaken more refreshed.

Collagen is loaded with the same gut-healing nutrients as gelatin (which is basically cooked collagen), so it helps transform a sick, “leaky” gut into a rock-solid one. This, in turn, extinguishes the chronic inflammation that packs weight on you—especially around your belly. As a result, you can melt off extra pounds much more easily.

Collagen is absolute magic for your hair and fingernails. And in addition to erasing wrinkles on your face, it can help prevent cellulite on your thighs and butt by strengthening the skin in these areas.

So seriously—if you aren’t supplementing your diet with bone broth and a high-quality collagen powder, what are you thinking? Start making collagen a daily habit, and it’ll make your skin look younger—and make you slimmer, healthier, sexier, and happier at the same time. So get a pot of bone broth cooking this weekend, or grab some of my on-the-go collagen powder packets if life is hectic. When you see the results, believe me—you’re going to thank me!

Keep thinking Big and living BOLD!
