How EFFECTIVE do you find collagen supps on a scale of 1-10 (0 being no benefits and 10 being super great)?ย ๐Ÿค“ I'm particularly interested in gut-healing but other benefits like thicker hair and clearer skin are definitely worth mentioning too. As we know, there's a close connection between our gut and skin (known as the gut-skin axis)! ๐Ÿ˜Œ #gut #guthealth #healthygut #microbiome #weightloss #mentalhealth #autoimmune #skin #supplements #gapsdiet #paleo #paleodiet #fodmap #whole30 #keto #ketodiet #detox #clean #cleaneating #cleaneats #organicfood #wellness #probiotics #intermittentfasting #collagen #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #skinfood #guthealing #gutbrainconnection

Top 7 Health Benefits of Collagen ๐Ÿคฉ #1 benefit is maintaining a healthy gut barrier! This in turn will also help to improve our skin, more so in fact than putting collagen-containing products directly on our skin, as collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed through our pores! ๐Ÿ˜ณ * Collagen and gelatin both play a healing role in leaky gut because they are one of the building blocks of our gut wall. The amino acids in collagen heal these damaged cells and build new tissue ๐Ÿ‘ * And what's the difference between gelatin and collagen? Gelatin is just the cooked form of collagen ๐Ÿค“ It has exactly the same health benefits but a different texture so is super useful in cooking! ๐Ÿฅ˜ http://bit.ly/2N1xQFs * Click/tap link in bio to read article!๐Ÿ‘† #gut #guthealth #healthygut #microbiome #weightloss #mentalhealth #autoimmune #skin #supplements #gapsdiet #paleo #paleodiet #fodmap #whole30 #keto #ketodiet #detox #clean #cleaneating #cleaneats #organicfood #wellness #intermittentfasting #meat #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #skinfood #guthealing #gutbrainconnections

Our supplements mini-series continues! If you decide you need an animal-based collagen supplement, the best option is from grass-fed cows ๐Ÿ‘ * Collagen is an important protein in our body that helps us to build muscle, bone, skin and connective tissue. Crucially our body needs it to heal and that's why it plays a big role in repairing leaky gut ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ * ๐Ÿค“ We don't HAVE to consume the collagen of other animals to increase our own collagen levels. Other options are to ensure our diet is rich in vitamins + minerals so that our body has the building blocks it needs to max out it's collagen production! ๐Ÿ‘ * Another option is to take plant-based supps like chlorella (see recent post) that help to boost our body's own collagen supply ๐Ÿ’š * OR we can take a supp that contains an extract of collagen from animals or fish. That's a very decent option but just make sure the collagen is from grass-fed cows or we could be consuming more gut irritants! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ * http://bit.ly/2LF43h0 Click/tap link in bio to read article!๐Ÿ‘† #gut #guthealth #healthygut #microbiome #weightloss #mentalhealth #autoimmune #skin #supplements #gapsdiet #paleo #paleodiet #fodmap #whole30 #keto #ketodiet #detox #clean #cleaneating #cleaneats #organicfood #wellness #probiotics #intermittentfasting #grassfed #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #skinfood #guthealing #gutbrainconnection

Hands up who's watched our video story for today? โ˜๏ธ If so, you're already up to speed with Coach Paige's ninja tip: chlorella! This is an excellent plant-based supplement that's been shown in studies to help our body produce more collagen (which helps heal our gut)!๐Ÿ‘Œ@plantbasedpaige * Chlorella is an ancient, single-cell species of algae that thrives in freshwater ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒŽ It's loaded with vitamins A, C & B, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and protein. * These nutrients are what as known as 'co-factors' for our body to build collagen. This means that our body uses them as building blocks to construct our own collagen. * This is one way of giving our body more collagen to use in our skin, bones, muscle and gut etc without us having to consume the collagen of other animals! ๐Ÿ˜€ * #gut #guthealth #healthygut #microbiome #weightloss #mentalhealth #autoimmune #skin #supplements #gapsdiet #paleo #paleodiet #fodmap #whole30 #keto #ketodiet #detox #clean #cleaneating #cleaneats #organicfood #wellness #probiotics #intermittentfasting #meat #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #skinfood #guthealing #gutbrainconnection

Which supplement do you think is most over-hyped?! * I'll go first! I'm not convinced yet about MCT oil ๐Ÿง๐Ÿคจ It's extracted from coconut oil to be absorbed more rapidly by our body so is thought to help with ketosis, or to mimic the benefits of ketosis without having to follow a ketosis diet. It's supposed to help with brain fog for example ๐Ÿง  I say why not just have coconut oil which is cheaper + less processed? But hey, I remain open-minded and... full disclosure...I haven't actually tried MCT oil yet! ๐Ÿคญ * PS For those tempted to say 'bone broth'...it doesn't count as it's a food not a supp! ๐Ÿ˜˜ * Click/tap link in bio to read article!๐Ÿ‘† #gut #guthealth #healthygut #microbiome #weightloss #mentalhealth #autoimmune #skin #supplements #gapsdiet #paleo #paleodiet #fodmap #whole30 #keto #ketodiet #detox #clean #cleaneating #cleaneats #organicfood #wellness #probiotics #intermittentfasting #meat #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #skinfood #guthealing #gutbrainconnection

How Collagen Affects Gut Health: it appears to be a key component in healing the intestinal wall! ๐Ÿค“ * Studies have found decreased collagen levels in folks with gut problems.

What Is Collagen? Itโ€™s a protein that our body uses to form and heal virtually every tissue in your body. Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s the most abundant protein we have! โญ๏ธ * A 2017 study found that collagen improves leaky gut ๐Ÿคฉ (reference in article: click/tap link in profile to read) * We canโ€™t get collagen directly from foods (only from supplements), so our body has to make it. Collagen supplements provide readily-available collagen chains that can be used by your body in all the tissues itโ€™s needed, such as our gut lining! ๐Ÿ‘ * ๐Ÿค“ While nutrition gives your body the raw materials to make glue (collagen), a supplement gives your body the glue directly * Collagen supplements can have many names, including the terms โ€œcollagen hydrolysateโ€, โ€œhydrolyzed collagenโ€ and โ€œcollagen peptidesโ€, but they all mean the same thing: small collagen chains extracted from animal tissues ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ„ * Click/tap link in bio to read article!๐Ÿ‘† #gut #guthealth #healthygut #microbiome #weightloss #mentalhealth #autoimmune #skin #supplements #gapsdiet #paleo #paleodiet #fodmap #whole30 #keto #ketodiet #detox #clean #cleaneating #cleaneats #organicfood #wellness #probiotics #intermittentfasting #meat #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #skinfood #guthealing #gutbrainconnection http://bit.ly/2Nkx8Qy
