Collagen peptides are becoming a popular supplement for good reason. They offer a host of health benefits that include improved joint function, better skin health, and reduced inflammation. But what are these peptides and how can you use them to improve your health?
What should I know about this?
Collagen Peptides are a type of protein that has been broken down into smaller pieces called peptides. These collagen-rich foods include beef bones (and other cuts), chicken feet, fish scales or skin, and eggshell membranes. You can also get collagen from pork skins and gelatinous parts of animals like cows’ tails or hooves that contain collagen fibers in them too! They’re typically found in soups made with meat stock such as “bone broth.” Collagen is one the most abundant proteins in our bodies, making up about 30% by weight – it’s what gives structure to our skin, hair nails, etc.
