Did you know there’s a “glue” that holds your body together?
It’s called collagen, and it’s all the rage nowadays for good reasons!
Without collagen, your skin would be dry and thin, your nails would be brittle, your muscles couldn’t grow, and your bones would be extremely fragile.
You may have heard that collagen can be good for your skin, but here’s the secret the beauty industry doesn’t want you to know: collagen does nothing for your skin, hair, or nails when it’s applied topically.
In fact, the molecule is too big to be absorbed by the skin. Collagen has to be eaten to reap all of its (many) benefits.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and it helps give shape, strength, and integrity to your tissues and organs.
It’s necessary to form and heal virtually every tissue in your body. That’s why it’s the most abundant protein you have — 30% of the total protein in your body is collagen.
Without optimal levels of collagen all of the following suffer or deteriorate:
So it’s clear that OPTIMAL levels of collagen is key for anyone suffering with issues in any of those areas. In fact, here are my favorite 11 benefits of optimal collagen levels...
TOP 11 BENEFITS OF THE RIGHT KIND OF COLLAGEN
1. SUPPORTS SKIN HEALTH The real and lasting benefits of collagen in your skin come from the inside out. Research shows that taking the right kind of collagen supplements:
For example, in one double-blind trial, 69 women received either 2.5g or 5.0g of a collagen supplement or placebo once daily for 8 weeks. At the end of the study, skin elasticity in both collagen groups was significantly higher in comparison to placebo. After 4 weeks of follow-up treatment, elderly women had a significantly higher skin elasticity level.
Another double-blind trial comparing two types of collagen compounds found that a high collagen content significantly improved facial skin moisture, elasticity, wrinkles and roughness in comparison to the low collagen compound and the placebo.
Bottom line: The right kind of collagen supplementation can prevent early signs of aging by keeping your skin firm and moisturized.
2. KEEPS YOUR NAILS STRONG Collagen supplementation can prevent brittle and broken nails, and support nail growth. One study found that consuming the right kind of collagen powder…
3. MAY PREVENT PREMATURE HAIR LOSS New groundbreaking research has found that certain types of collagen could prevent early hair loss, hair thinning, and hair graying, because collagen is part of your hair follicle stem cells (HFSC), which helps create new hair. A deficiency can trigger early aging in hair stem cells, causing premature hair loss.
4. ALLOWS MUSCLES GROWTH AND REGENERATION Adequate levels of collagen in your body is vital for the growth and healing of muscles. The right kind of collagen supplementation has been shown to:
One study found that supplementation with ultra-pure collagen in combination with resistance training increased fat-free mass and muscle strength while lowering fat mass.
A study published in Nature discovered that a lack of a certain type of collagen can impair muscle recovery.
5. HELPS JOINTS, TENDONS, AND LIGAMENTS Collagen makes up a vast majority of the tissue in joints, tendons, and ligaments. In fact, tendons are 80% collagen!
Therefore, any deficiencies can affect flexibility, range of motion and cause joint diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Supplementing with Argentine collagen can:
In a randomized, double-blind trial involving 60 patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis, consuming the right type of collagen for 3 months decreased the number of swollen and tender joints, and 4 patients had a complete remission.
Collagen supplementation is especially helpful for osteoarthritis. One double-blind study concluded that “collagen peptides are potential therapeutic agents as nutritional supplements for the management of osteoarthritis and maintenance of joint health”.
6. STRENGTHENS BONES The strength of your bones depends on two things:
As you age, this collagen network debilitates, making your bones less resistant. Luckily, your body is able to quickly absorb and use oral collagen to make up for the natural collagen loss. Consuming ultra-pure collagen supplements may:
In children, daily intake of ultra-pure collagen at key stages of growth has positive effects on bone remodeling and formation.
7. PROMOTES TISSUE REPAIR Here’s how collagen helps your skin heal:
If your body isn’t able to produce enough collagen, or you have a deficiency in vitamin C (crucial for collagen synthesis), your ability to heal can be affected.
8. KEEPS YOUR EYES HEALTHY Collagen is key for good vision as it helps maintain the pigmented layer of your retina and the clear gel that fills your eyeball (vitreous body).
Research shows that deficiencies in a certain type of collagen may lead to eye defects and malformations.
9. PROMOTES GUT HEALTH A recent study found that collagen peptides could help repair a “leaky gut.”
Also, a lack of collagen in your intestinal tissue has been linked to chronic inflammation and inflammatory bowel disease (IBS).
10. ENSURES HEART HEALTH Collagen keeps your heart beating, literally, because it is concentrated in one of the three walls of your heart: the myocardium, which is in charge of making the contractions to pump blood. Here, collagen does two things:
Without enough collagen, your heart couldn’t beat.
Unfortunately, as you age the collagen network in the heart naturally changes. This shift in collagen levels weakens and thins your heart’s wall, alters heart function, and changes the pressure in your arteries when the heart pumps blood.
11. SUPPORTS BRAIN HEALTH Collagen is present in your neurons, where it helps to fight oxidation and neurodegeneration.
Research finds that collagen deficiency in the brain can cause:
In other words, the right type of collagen helps the brain function properly and prevents neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Bottom Line: The “hype” around collagen supplementation (assuming it’s the right, safe, pure type) is well deserved because collagen deficiency is linked to many degenerative diseases like arthritis, osteoporosis, poor vision, impaired wound healing, leaky gut, and Alzheimer’s disease.
THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS
The right type of collagen supplements provide readily-available collagen chains that can be used by your body in all the tissues it’s needed. And while whole foods DO give your body the raw materials to make “glue” (collagen), the right type of ultra-pure collagen supplement gives your body the “glue” directly. This can result in benefits to all the areas we just covered in a shockingly short amount of time.
Collagen supplements can have many names, including the terms “collagen hydrolysate”, “hydrolyzed collagen” and “collagen peptides”, but they all mean the same thing: small collagen chains extracted from animal tissues.
Gelatin goes through a similar process, but it’s not the same as hydrolyzed collagen, as some people might think.
COLLAGEN VS GELATIN Collagen and gelatin are not the same supplement. Gelatin is a form of cooked collagen.
To create gelatin, the collagen-rich tissues are boiled at a high pressure to partially break down the collagen molecules. The gelatin is then extracted, purified and dried. This is called apartial hydrolysis.
Unlike collagen supplements, no enzymes are used to create gelatin. The collagen is not entirely broken down.
This leaves gelatin with long chains of amino acids, in contrast with the short chains of collagen peptides.
That’s why gelatin is less absorbable and efficient than collagen peptides.
WHICH SHOULD YOU TAKE? Gelatin is ideal if you want to increase your intake of amino acids in your daily life — as you saw above, it’s an excellent source of collagen building blocks — but ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen is a far better choice if your goal is to boost your collagen levels faster and more easily.
BENEFITS OF ULTRA-PURE COLLAGEN This isn’t an exhaustive list, but these are my 5 favorite benefits of the right kind of collagen supplementation:
#1 BOOST YOUR METABOLISM Ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen is easily digested in the gut and then immediately crosses the intestinal barrier, enters circulation, and become available for your tissues.
Ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen is the most efficient source because:
In other words, it works faster than gelatin and collagen made from scratch by your body.
#2 IMPROVE SKIN, JOINTS, AND BONE HEALTH Ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides strengthen all the tissues in your body, but research finds they particularly shine on skin, joints, and bones by helping to:
#3 IT'S SO EASY TO USE Ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen is a tasteless powdered form, which makes it ideal for incorporating into hot beverages, baked goods, smoothies, and other foods without any unpleasant flavors.
#4 IT DOESN’T GEL Ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen do not make your beverages gelatinous. It dissolves quickly and won’t change the texture of your food.
#5 AWESOME AMINO ACIDS Ultra-pure hydrolyzed collagen is 90% protein and contains 8 out of the 9 essential amino acids — histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.
Tryptophan is the only one not included, but you can easily get it from low-sugar yogurt, eggs, and meat.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENT
Please do not just take any collagen supplement. Thanks to the popularity of collagen supplementation, some very dangerous players have entered the space and you MUST be careful when choosing which type of collagen you will put into your body.
Be sure to consider at least these 5 factors:
#1 CONSIDER THE SOURCE The best hydrolyzed collagen in the market is bovine collagen. It’s the most researched and has proven health benefits for your skin, bones, joints, eyes, brain, muscles, tendons, and more.
Here’s why it’s superior to other sources:
#2 GO FOR GRASS-FED Collagen from grass-fed cows has a superior quality.
Research finds that grass-fed cows have higher beta-carotene (precursor of Vitamin A) levels than grain-fed cows.
This matters because vitamin A is critical for the overall integrity of skin and mucous membranes. In the case of cows, it helps collagen maintain the integrity of the hide, which is the main tissue used to create collagen peptides.
This means grass-fed cows may have healthier skins (hides) than grain-fed cows, making grass-fed collagen more effective.
#3 MAKE SURE IT IS AT LEAST 90% PROTEIN WITHOUT FILLERS Most collagen’s on the market are packed with a bunch of non-collagen nonsense. To safely enjoy all the benefits we’ve discussed, your collagen must be 90% protein from grass-fed collagen peptides.
Collagen peptides don’t need any other ingredients to be processed, so your supplement should have just one ingredient on the label — collagen. The label should say something like this:
Stay clear of any supplements that include gelatin (that’s not the same as peptides), vegetable magnesium stearate, or sweeteners besides stevia. To make sure there are no hidden ingredients, check the nutrients profile, and make sure the carbs are at 1% or less.
#4 AVOID ADDITIVES AND FLAVORING Ultra-pure grass fed collagen is tasteless and thus can be easily added to anything you eat or drink. Additives and flavoring NEVER do anything to help you and the VAST majority of them hurt you. Therefore, please do not allow increasing your collagen intake to increase your intake of additives and flavoring. Enjoy tasteless pure Argentine grass fed collagen within other beverages, smoothies, and dishes that already provide awesome -- and non-toxic -- flavor.
THE BOTTOM LINE AND NEXT STEPS

Did you know that exogenous ketones can lower blood glucose?
Although the research is in its infancy, it appears that exogenous ketones, even when consumed with dietary carbohydrates, can produce a glucose lowering effect. If and how this is taking place is currently of great interest given that we know chronically high glucose is associated with various metabolic disorders.
There are a couple speculations around how this could be happening. It could be due to decreased glucose output from our liver, since this is something ketones are known to do. Another possibility is acting through insulin, since one of insulin’s primary roles is to lower blood glucose. If exogenous ketones are consumed in large enough quantities, this can stimulate a small release of insulin and thereby lower blood glucose. Strategies to control elevated blood glucose is something that may be useful to anyone wanting to improve their overall health, and we are excited to see what future studies show in regard to this potential therapeutic application of ketones.

6 Steps to Getting More Phytonutrients
Food is more than nutrition. We believe it’s essential to have optimal amounts of phytonutrients and to be nourished through the power of yum, joy of cooking and eating, and the courage to be creative while increasing control of our food supply and meal preparation.
1 Aim for 9-13 Servings of Plant Foods Everyday We need about 9-13 servings of whole plant foods if we want to prevent chronic disease. A typical serving is only half a cup of cooked vegetables, one cup of raw leafy vegetable, or a medium-sized piece of fruit. It would be best to aim for every meal of the day to have about 3-4 servings of plant foods so that at three general meals per day (not including snacks), you would make your serving requirement on a daily basis.
2 Know Your Phytonutrient Sources Phytonutrient-rich eats are limitless, making it fun to experiment with new varieties and colors even within one category of food. Here are some sources of phytonutrients to get you started: any and all plant foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and even herbs and spices.
3 Eat the Rainbow of Colors Instead of getting the full rainbow of color, you may be eating the standard processed food colors of brown, yellow, and white. For example, think of the typical breakfast menu – waffles, pancakes, ready-to-eat cereal, sausage, and eggs – which does not necessarily provide much color early in the day. However, if you had a fruit smoothie with blueberries, peaches, and raspberries, you’d have three colors of the seven colors of the rainbow first thing in the morning! Make it your goal to get the full seven colors every day with a variety of foods.
4 Vary Your Choices There are thousands of phytonutrients in nature. If we eat the same foods over and over again, even if they are colorful, we may be missing the universe of important phytonutrients in foods. One helpful hint is to try a new food every week to ensure that you are getting different foods to try!
5 Maximize Combinations When we put certain foods together, we may achieve a better effect than if we just had the foods by themselves. Sometimes, there can be a “synergistic” result from combining certain foods. For example, putting turmeric with black pepper together with olive oil could enhance the phytonutrient effects of all three foods on your health. Adding lemon juice to spinach could help the iron become more absorbed by your body. Try putting plant foods together for an enhanced health benefit.
6 Be Creative with Substitutions One way to get more plant foods would be to think of foods that are commonly eaten that may not be as nutrient dense and replace with nutrient-dense options. Some plant foods clearly give us more phytonutrients than others! For example, you could substitute mashed potatoes with mashed purple potatoes or sweet potatoes. You could substitute white rice with purple, brown, or black rice.
Everyone knows we all need dark, leafy greens to stay healthy, but most don’t have the time, budget or the taste buds to get the full spectrum every day. Did you know we need 3 times as many vegetables today to make up for the nutrients lacking in our soil? No matter if you are good at getting whole foods into your diet or not, we all need extra nutrients to help keep our bodies healthy.

These days, it’s difficult to keep one’s toxin load low. After all, we are confronted on a daily basis with contaminants in our food, water, and air. This is a short list of potential action steps that you can take to help reduce your toxin load through food, cooking, and eating.
1) PLANT-BASED FOODS: Eat at least 7 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables daily. Plant foods are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients, which can protect against chemical stressors.
2) MINERALS: Eat mineral-rich (calcium, magnesium, iron, selenium) foods or with the help of a health practitioner, take a quality mineral supplement. Essential minerals and heavy metals compete with one another. Researchers have suggested that when essential minerals are at adequate levels in the body, there is less uptake of toxic metals.
3) BERRIES: Eat plants containing polyphenolic compounds like our PaleoReds (raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, grape, etc.) for their ability to protect genetic material from ionizing radiation
4) BROCCOLI: Add powdered mustard seeds to cooked broccoli to increase formation of one of the major detox compounds from cruciferous vegetables, sulforaphane. You can also add our product Broccoprotect to your supplement regime.
5) CILANTRO: Cook cilantro in soup rather than eating it raw to optimize its ability to bind toxins
6) SPICES: Use spices, especially turmeric and rosemary, when cooking to offset the formation of unhealthy compounds (e.g., heterocyclic amines) that form with heat
7) HONEY: Choose organic honey as it has been shown to help reduce DNA damage from pesticides
8) GREENS: Eat greens rich in chlorophyll like our PaleoGreens to bind toxins.
9) STORAGE: Maximize detox compounds in kale and cabbage by keeping them out of the fridge and in the cycling of day and night rhythm
10) COOKING: Use slow, low, and moist methods of cooking instead of dry heat methods to decrease the formation of inflammatory compounds
11) CONTAINERS: Avoid cans and plastic and replace with glass containers whenever possible
12) VITAMIN C: Talk with your health practitioner whether you might need a vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C may help reduce persistent organic pollutant levels and buffer the body from oxidative stress caused by toxins, not to mention bolster glutathione. See also our Liposomal C and Liposomal Glutathione products.
As always, when in doubt, or if you have a health condition, consult with your health practitioner on what is best for you.
I get asked this question a lot and until recently that was a hard choice to make. However, new research on annatto as a source of vitamin e tocotrienols has made the answer easy.
