Did you know that collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, playing a key role in joint health, maintaining skin elasticity and also maintaining the microscopic villi of the intestines for gut health? Read on to learn more about how the amino acids in SKINGLO collagen help repair and restore your gut lining, promote healthy digestion, and contribute towards reduced inflammation.
Do you ever think about how your gut is feeling? Most of us don’t give our digestive system a second thought until something goes wrong. But did you know that collagen, the protein that’s been trending for its beauty benefits, can also play a significant role in keeping our gut happy and healthy? Let’s take a closer look at how collagen supports our gut health in a language that we can all relate to.
First off, what exactly is collagen? and how can SKINGLO help? Collagen is a fibrous protein that serves as a building block for various parts of our body, such as our skin, bones, and joints. Interestingly, collagen is also present in the gut lining, where it plays a crucial role in shielding us from harmful substances like bacteria and toxins. The gut lining acts as a barrier that prevents these harmful agents from entering our bloodstream and wreaking havoc on our health. However, when the gut lining becomes damaged, it can lead to a condition known as leaky gut syndrome. In this condition, the protective barrier becomes compromised, allowing toxins to pass through and cause inflammation and other health problems throughout the body.
But here’s where collagen comes in. SKINGLO collagen contains an amino acid called glutamine. Glutamine has been shown to help repair and restore the gut lining, preventing leaky gut syndrome from wreaking havoc on our body. Collagen is essentially what comes to the rescue of our gut lining, keeping it strong and healthy.
SKINGLO collagen also contains glycine, which helps to stimulate stomach acid production, necessary for breaking down our food and absorbing all the nutrients we need. It also contains proline, an amino acid that strengthens the muscles of our gut, promoting healthy gut motility and preventing constipation.
Inflammation in our gut can lead to a host of digestive issues, but collagen has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce inflammation and keep our gut environment balanced.
How can you incorporate collagen into your diet to reap all these benefits? Our collagen comes in drinkable sachets which are perfect for taking straight, adding to your water or beverage of choice. It’s easy to consume and has a lovely exotic fruit flavour too!
Collagen may be the latest buzzword in the beauty industry, but it’s also a powerful tool for keeping your gut healthy and happy. From repairing and restoring our gut lining to promoting healthy digestion and reducing inflammation, collagen is something that we can all benefit from. So, let’s start giving our gut the attention it deserves and add some collagen to our daily routine!
