Collagen and Aging

From eNewsletter 5/3/2023

DID YOU KNOW that collagen expression may be a key for healthy aging? A study from Aging Cell found collagen genes that express themselves optimally produce ample collagen, thus increasing the opportunity for healthy aging. There are several ways we can assure this occurs:

  • Do our Pure Genomics screening that analyzes collagen gene variation. If mutations exist and they are negatively expressed, they can be modified with proper diet and lifestyle.

  • Consume proteins rich in collagen and supplement with a high quality, varied collagen powder.

  • Make sure you get enough vitamin C as it is a precursor for collagen production.

On another note, a new study from Nutrition Journal found supplemental collagen alleviated pain, and improved muscle mass and muscle strength in subjects with knee osteoarthritis.
