Health benefits of Collagen
Hello my friends. I am about to present to you something exceedingly needed in the human body, that not many doctors talk about. This something is highly responsible to your longevity (longer-life-span) and less body aches and pain and overall positive health benefits, naturally. I have used my own body as a guinea pig to be able to express my newly found health benefits of natural nutrients that is located in food that we should be eating for good health, instead of consuming excessive amounts of processed foods, and ruining our health. We need to relearn to eat properly, naturally made and created food, that is simple. This is the basics. Not a complete comprehensive study. I want you to follow up by reading and researching the benefits of Collagen for your health. It is also known as Gelatin, because of the jelly look, like in Jello without the sugar content.
I am talking about Collagen; pronounced: Col-lag-en. Collagen is Anti-aging. It is located in about 90% of the body in different forms. It is a protein. It is like a glue that binds the body together. It is located primarily in the tissues of the skin, ligaments, muscles, joints, hair, heals the stomach/gut and etc. It is the clear liquid that you see oozing out of damaged skin, or in a pot of boiled meat such as beef. That jelly like liquid is collagen that is floating there in a cool pot of boiled meat. Not the whitish semi-solid stuff, that is just fat from grease, useless. Toss it out. Collagen can be gathered from the pot and used in a broth or soup or stew.
The benefits are: Stronger joints. More flexibility of ligaments, muscles, and sinew. Hair will stay it’s natural color longer. Skin will maintain it’s elasticity and not wrinkle as you age. Your body will not feel as weak and worn down. Your eyes will be healthier. Less pain and discomfort. Stronger nails, arteries, heart muscles and on and on. Understand?
How to get it? Well, all you have to do is consume vegetables of a red color, such as tomatoes, potatoes, beets, apples, and oranges and etc. Meat that is lean red beef, cut away the fat. Pork, chicken, chicken feet, animal joints, salmon/fish of any kind. Green leafy vegetables, such as collard greens, mustards, lentils, pinto beans and etc.
Boiled foods are the best, fried foods, not so much. But the absolute best is Bone Broth. Bone Broth is loaded with collagen. You have to boil the beef or animal bone for hours to get them to release the collagen/gelatin into the water. Ask Halle Berry about this one. That is how she was and is maintaining her good looks and health over the years. She makes her own Bone Broth. I am 73 and looks a bit younger because of my eating mostly natural foods and getting some good walking, bicycling, swimming, meditation, prayer, and seeking peace and quiet in my life.
Last but not least: The human body’s ability to create Collagen start slowing down around 25-30 years old. By the time you reach 60, the body has stopped creating Collagen period. Now you start to look old and wrinkled and grey. This is a natural thing designed by nature for your body to return from whence it came, back to the earth. But you can hold off the ravages of old age a bit longer and look really great if you follow my advice up there. I promise you. I am living proof, even though I wore myself out working so hard. I thought that I would be dead and gone by 70. I am still here. Glory to the All Mighty. Lead a simple life and prosper in all ways that you deserve.
Side effects: NONE what so ever. Unless you eat too much food. Then common sense knows what happens then. Am I right or wrong? Read up on this Collagen/Gelatin. You have been blessed. Blessed is like receiving a special favor. Having Faith and Grace is Salvation. Love is the key to the invisible door. Seek and you shall find it. Nuff’ said.
