Cooking with Collagen

  • Topic Info:Supplementing with collagen can provide head-to-toe benefits, not just beauty.

    Your bone, joint, cardiovascular and digestive health all benefit, because you're rebuilding ALL tissues from the inside out. 

    Studies have shown that collagen helps reduce blood pressure and decreases risk of heart disease by improving the health of veins, arteries and the heart muscle.

    Also, collagen helps mitigate the bone-destroying effects of Americans' increasingly acidic diets by improving bone density and flexibility. 

    While there are many collagen supplements on the market in pill form, other types of consumable options are available as well. Powdered collagen can be added to things like salad dressings, sauces, soups, even mac-n-cheese. The powder is unflavored and can survive boiling temperatures. It's a great way to boost the nutritional value of your favorite foods.

    Listen in as Tim Mount, National Educator for NeoCell, joins hosts Andrea and Lisa to share more about collagen's benefits for the whole body, as well as the varying ways you can get more collagen into your daily regimen.
