The Dirty Truth About Collagen
Why do I need collagen?
Collagen is the long chain of amino acids that build our skin, connective tissue, and bones but cannot be absorbed through our diet. It is made primarily of three amino acids: proline, hydroxyproline and glycine—which gives it unique functional properties different from all other proteins. This also makes it the most important structural protein in the body. As we age, we do not produce collagen as effectively as we would like.

Many of us grew up believing Self-Care was an extravagance we could live without. Then we realized stress is at the core of almost
all illness. This is that “ah ha” moment when we understand
Self-Care is no longer a luxury. It’s become the necessary foundation of a healthy happy life.

Your health is literally what keeps your body alive. Without it all
the other areas of your life suffer. If any facets of your life…like
your job, relationships, finances, or emotions are causing stress
they simply exacerbate your illness.

Calcium provides the building blocks that help keep bones and teeth strong and healthy. It also plays a role in the proper functioning of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. When combined with a healthy diet and physical activity, adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Magnesium helps to regulate calcium transport and stimulates the secretion of calcitonin, a hormone that aids in the influx of calcium into bone. Magnesium is also vital to the release of energy in cells.

If you’re on the path toward health improvement, you may want
to start with one of history’s most treasured and well-known adaptogens, Ashwagandha. This short shrub with its bell-shaped flowers and tiny red fruit inside rarely grows more than three
feet tall, but for countless generations, what a powerhouse of
herbal support Ashwagandha has turned out to be.

Ashwagandha’s name comes from Sanskrit and translates
roughly to “the strength of the stallion” because it’s traditionally
been used to support energy, balance and vitality (and frankly,
it also smells a little like a horse!)

Omega-3 essential fatty acids are considered “essential”
because they are needed for optimal health but cannot be
produced by our bodies, and, therefore, must be consumed daily through diet or supplementation. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
is one omega-3 found in fish and fish oil that is especially
beneficial for healthy fetal, infant, and child development.
In early childhood, DHA is particularly important because the
brain and eyes rely heavily on it for proper growth.

DHA is essential for normal brain and eye function throughout life;
it is the principal fatty acid comprising the brain’s cerebral cortex, supporting memory and learning, membrane fluidity, and the development of hormone-like compounds.
