Discover the World of Collagen: The Crucial Protein in Your Body

Collagen, the most abundant protein in your body, makes up about 30% of all protein tissue. It plays an essential role in providing structural support, allowing your tissues to stretch and flex while maintaining their integrity. This versatile protein is found not only in your skin, but also in connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage and fascia, your bones, organs, blood vessels, musculoskeletal system, and even your hair and nails.

Aging Elegantly with Collagen

As the years go by, the loss of collagen is the main culprit for wrinkles, dry and saggy skin, and dull hair. The more collagen you have, the softer, smoother and firmer your skin will be, because collagen actively contributes to the repair and renewal of skin cells.

It's worth noting that by the time you reach your sixties, you only have about half the collagen you had in your youth. By the time you're eighty, you'll only have a quarter left, leading to changes in the appearance of your skin.

Foods such as fish, bone broth and organic, free-range chicken and eggs are natural sources of collagen

When it comes to skin health, it is important to remember that topically applied collagen cannot penetrate deeper layers of the skin. That's why investing in the health of your skin from within is crucial. Fortunately, you can ensure that you get enough collagen and/or gelatin in your diet.

Variety in Collagen: From Beef from Europe to Fish from Wild European Waters

At Paleo Powders we offer two types of collagen of the highest quality. Our beef collagen comes from Europe, specifically Sweden, and is known for its excellent quality and purity. It is a product of the highest standard.

Our fish collagen only comes from wild fish from European waters. This not only ensures the highest quality, but it also highlights our commitment to sustainability and the conservation of Europe's natural resources.

Sources of collagen

When looking for sources of collagen, consider making homemade stock from organic chicken feet or beef bones. This is cost-effective and nutritious. For supplements, prefer powdered gelatin or collagen made from beef broth, and prefer products certified as "100% Organic".

Avoid non-organic collagen supplements, which often come from animals raised in factory farms (CAFOs) and may contain unwanted contaminants.
