There are actually many types of collagen, and they all serve different purposes. Type I collagen is the most common in our bodies and can be found in many different types of tissue, such as skin, bone, tendons, ligaments, and the cornea. However, it’s Type III collagen that maintains elasticity, not only in skin, but also in blood vessels and organ structure (such as the liver, spleen, and lungs). Babies have a lot of collagen in their bodies — it’s why their skin is so flawless. Collagen production decreases with age, which directly impacts the youthful appearance of our skin. Wrinkles, age spots, and stretch marks are all more likely to occur as we grow older.
Supplementing with collagen can be a great way to support skin health, but it’s important to choose the right type — in this case, types I and III. Collagen can only be found naturally in foods of animal origin like gelatin, eggs, fish, poultry and meats, but since a rich source is bone marrow, a good source is bone broth (preferably homemade). And, some foods, support your body’s ability to synthesize collagen.
Not all Supplements are created equal!
Unlike synthetic and cheaper over the counter supplements, our Medical Grade supplements contain highly bioavailable forms of vitamins and nutrients ensuring your body is getting the most effective and natural form of the vitamin. Also, over the counter vitamins generally have lower concentrations of the product and sometimes contain toxic fillers. We check to make sure none of your prescription medications if any, interact with your supplements. We only carry medical grade supplements at Powell Pharmacy.
Happy National Random Act of Kindness Day! Here at Powell Pharmacy our motto is “We all struggle, choose kindness always.” You never know what a person is going through, so choose to live with kindness not only in your heart but also in your actions. Let’s all learn to nurture kindness and watch it grow 🌱❤️
