Hi, I’m Dr. Chad Larson. And this is Keep It Real. Keep It Real is all about real talk based on my 20 plus years of clinical experience. What we’re really talking about is real food, real medicine, and real change.
One of my favorite products is called Perfect Collagen.
These are the top five uses of Collagen.
Building Block for our Joints
Great for Hair, Skin and Nails
Precursor for Glutathione
Number one: it’s a great building block for our joints. So if you have joint degeneration, inflammation, joint damage, or lax ligaments to your joints, collagen can be a great supporting building block for that.
Number four: Also, mood. People have issues with depression, anxiety, these kinds of things, and we need a little lift in our serotonin. Glycine from collagen is a great building block for that. That’s number four.
And then number five as kind of a bonus: it’s a precursor, a building block, for an amazing antioxidant in our system called glutathione. For people who have excess inflammation to their system, glutathione is a great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. So collagen is great for all five of these purposes.
Look for bovine collagen that is grass fed, or egg collagen that comes from cage-free chickens. If the supplement doesn’t specify, then it is probably not a quality source, or the supplement company would be bragging in their advertising.
