Can Collagen Benefit Arthritis Sufferers?
By Biggi Fraley • Issue #12 • View online
If you are taking a collagen supplement in order to reduce arthritis joint pain and inflammation, I have disappointing news for you. 😞
Numerous scientific studies have been unable to prove that collagen benefits arthritis sufferers.
However, collagen has so many wonderful benefits, that I still felt compelled to share my research with you, especially since collagen production decreases after age 40!
One of those benefits is that collagen supports the healing of leaky gut, which more often than not is an underlying cause for your arthritis as well as other autoimmune diseases.

Various Foods Can Help Your Body Produce More Collagen
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our bodies.
It is practically “the glue” that holds everything together, as it is a major component in our connective tissues, bones, muscles, skin, and tendons.
As collagen decreases with age, our skin loses its elasticity causing wrinkles, and we may get joint pain due to weakened or decreased cartilage.
What are the Benefits of Collagen?
The most benefits from collagen can be derived from consuming it, rather than applying it topically (ie skin cream). When you do supplement with collagen, it is important to combine it with vitamin C, in order to increase your body’s ability to absorb and fully utilize the collagen.

#2: Prevent and Help Treat Heart Disease
#3: Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
#4: Ease Joint and Knee Pain
#5: Less Back Pain
#6: Improve Skin Elasticity
#7: Say Goodbye to Brittle, Broken Nails
What Decreases Collagen Production?
As I mentioned above, collagen production naturally decreases with age, but other lifestyle factors can also cause a decrease.
Examples are 🚭 smoking, too much sun exposure (UV radiation), stress, a lack of sleep, and a diet high in sugar.
And even a vitamin C deficiency can cause decrease of collagen production, as the body is unable to absorb the collagen efficiently.
What Increases Collagen Production?
Now you may be wondering what you can do to increase the production of collagen, and thankfully, there are ways to stimulate collagen production naturally:
  1. Vitamin C
  2. Lysine and proline
  3. Vitamin B3
  4. Vitamin A
  5. Exercise
  6. Royal Jelly
  7. Aloe Vera
  8. Silicon

(For me that will be pumpkin seeds. I’ll try them sprinkled on my salad.)

What Makes a Good Quality Collagen Supplement?
Not only is it essential to have many different sources to get the highest quality supplement, but it is also vital to know what those sources are. Look for things like “grass fed” bovine collagen or “cage-free” egg collagen, to know how good the source that the collagen comes from is. ~ DR. CHAD LARSON

Candida Summit is starting Monday, July 9, 2018
Candida is a naturally occurring, yet “opportunistic” fungus.
With the right conditions, there’s no limit to where it will spread and, when rampant, it can cause intense sugar cravings, brain fog, bloating, depression, anxiety, digestive issues, low energy or worse… chronic diseases!
