If you’ve been following me for awhile (specifically on Instagram), you know collagen is a staple for me every.single.day. And today I want to share why I take collagen and why I am so obsessed with it.

There are a lot of things we can do to naturally reverse the aging process. I am all about that! Who isn’t? One of my top beauty tricks has been adding collagen to my diet. It has changed my life.
When looking at our bodies, there are many factors that make cells and tissues work properly, such as hydration, temperature, availability of nutrients, and pH. The pH stands for “potential of hydrogen” and is a measurement of hydrogen ions in a particular solution – the more ions, the more acidic the solution, and vice versa.
But why is this so important? Our bodies are designed to operate within a very narrow pH range, which is around 7.365, which is slightly alkaline. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. A pH of higher than 7 is alkalizing, a pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH of 7 is considered neutral.
Today, more than ever, we are the effect of way too much stress alongside far more chemicals and toxins than ever in the history of man. To ensure we maintain optimal health and well-being, it’s imperative to support our body’s ability to effectively detoxify in light of this.

In fact, the No. 1 reason people go organic is to avoid pesticides and other chemicals,1 and the majority of Americans consume organic food at least occasionally.
Ah collagen. Nature’s botox. Ever since I discovered the importance of it, I’ve been hooked and cant get enough.
An estimated 200 million people around the world are being unanimously medicated without consent. Many water sources around the world are intentionally tainted with fluoride byproducts because they are believed to provide a medical benefit. According to the CDC, “community water fluoridation has been a safe and healthy way to effectively prevent tooth decay.”
When it comes to organic food, it’s buyer beware. Fake organics abound these days, be it organic eggs laid by hens cooped up in gigantic factory farms, organic beef and milk from cows raised under anything but humane, pastured conditions, or hydroponic vegetables grown under artificial lighting in conventional coconut waste or ground up plastic, fertilized with a liquid slurry of conventionally grown (and hence pesticide-laden) processed soybeans.
