What is collagen?

Collagen is a protein that constitutes most of the connective tissue. Collagen can be found from bone, cartilage, tendons, skin and around organs.  About 40% of the entire body mass and 70% of the dry body mass is collagen. There are different types of collagen in:

  • skin
  • joints
  • tendons
  • bones
  • veins
  • and spinal discs

Collagen benefits

The natural human collagen production starts to slow down in small increments already around the age of 25. In addition, collagen structure and strength starts to weaken. Lower collagen production leads to slower recovery and regeneration of joints, tendons, cartilage, sking and other tissues around the body.

Where to get collagen?

Collagen can be absorbed from certain foods or from a wide range of supplements. The Arctic Might Bone Broth Powder also contains high amounts of bioavailable collagen per serving in addition to other health benefits.

Here are some of the best foods that boost collagen production naturally:

  • Fish
  • Red Bell Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Bone Broth
  • Berries
