Bombshell collagen is the fountain of youth, so & drink up so we can get glowing, girl!
Collagen has made a bold step into the spotlight of the anti-aging industry. You may have heard how collagen is the ultimate all round product for your skin, hair, and nails, because of all the health benefits it possesses. For this same reason, it is also gaining popularity among athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a natural the protein that is found in one third of the human body parts- these include muscles, bones, skin, and tendons. One of the many functions of collagen, is that it increases the turnover time of cells in the body, meaning that new cells are formed faster. This is one of the properties of collagen that makes it responsible for beautiful hair, glowing skin, a happy gut, strong bones, and a list that can go on forever! As we age, we naturally start producing less collagen, and as a result, we develop sagging skin, wrinkles, and our cartilage weakens.
THE GOOD NEWS..
You CAN combat the reduced collagen production that will inevitably occur in your body by including a high-quality hydrolysed collagen source in your daily diet. This form of collagen is already broken down, meaning that your body is better able to absorb and use it.. Bombshell collagen to the rescue!
Seeing as collagen is the main protein in your skin, it makes sense that having plentiful amounts can help support the body in maintaining a youthful look. Studies have found that getting enough collagen in your anti-aging diet (through supplementation) may reduce the depth and volume of wrinkles.
Benefits of Bombshell collagen as a supplement to a balanced diet include:
Improved skin, hair, and nail quality
Improved gut health
Quicker detox rate
I already know what you’re thinking, but none of these benefits are too good to be true. All of this is possible because of the rapid rate at which cells are regenerated when adequate levels of collagen are available in the body!

Why is Grass-fed so important?
Because bovine collagen is typically derived from cowhides, you should also consider how those cows were raised and what they were fed—both for your health and the health of the environment. Always seek out a bovine collagen supplement from an established company that sources their product from humanely raised, grass-fed, or pasture-raised cows (if they don’t call this out on their label, that’s typically a red flag).
“Grass-fed collagen is the way to go,” says Ariane Hundt, M.S., a clinical nutrition coach in New York City. When grass-fed, 100% organic collagen is created and it’s derived from animals that were raised in strict standards, this ensures better quality. ” It means the animal has never been given any antibiotics, was able to forage and feed on greens, and wasn’t confined like factory animals,” Hundt explains.
I bet you never thought that a healthy cow could in any way contribute to the health of your bones!
