How to support collagen health
In this blog, I’m going to share with you how to support collagen health to strengthen skin & every other layer of your body.
Did you know that collagen slowly renews over several months if your body contains the right building blocks, supportive nutrients, and regulators? After water, collagen is the second-largest component of the connective tissue fascia that holds your body together.
Maybe you were told that skin is made of collagen, that’s correct.It’s the most superficial layer that needs collagen to stay smooth and firm. Yet, every layer underneath the skin depends on collagen health. The only difference is the collagen content in each one of those layers.
The more collagen-rich your fascia is, the more tensile strength it has, meaning it allows you to gain dynamic stability and mobility in your joints.
Yet, not just fascia needs this essential protein. Your entire body is made of collagen.
What’s unique about each of those layers is that each needs different building blocks and other supportive nutrients(cofactors) to stay healthy.
Therefore, the first question you should be asking is, how is collagen made? And secondly, how can you eat to support optimal collagen health.
In the years of research, Resync has conducted, there are three levels to how what you eat affects this essential protein in your skin and connective tissues.
The first are the fundamental building blocks, the amino acids. The distribution of these building blocks depends on the tissue (each layer). Yet, essentially, you need to have the full spread of amino acids to build collagen ( whey protein doesn’t provide you with all of them) and to strengthen it, to cross-link it in ways that either promote its resiliency or its ability to stretch you have to have these other building blocks for example collagen peptides. Yet, there are others.
The next level that we would consider in how your nutrition affects how your collagen gets made are those supportive nutrients - those cofactors and supporting nutrients that allow your body to build and maintain your collagen. For example you need copper, Vitamin C & Iron. Yet, there is more.
You are constantly breaking down and building down collagen and for that process to happen effectively, you’ve got to have these mentioned cofactors. These nutrients plugin into the enzymes and make them work for your Collagen machinery to operate optimally.
Then we need to get into a more extensive landscape, the larger antioxidant and inflammatory regulators. What’s your body‘s pH, your weight status, the presence of a chronic condition, or how many antioxidants you’re eating.
There are so many different things that go into how the whole process of making collagen is regulated. It’s not as straight forward of taking plain white power of collagen protein and calling a day.
Here is an example of an easy and powerful a recipe to help you strengthen your collagen
