I’m trying to understand why so many people are consuming crushed cow bones and claiming it has miracle health benefits. Where is the science to back that up? Is this a way for companies to make money off the waste or by-products so they don’t have to pay to dispose of it? This is how skim milk and mineral oil came to be. I’d venture to say collagen supplements are in the same category.
Our body is well-designed to make it’s own collagen.
Swallowing collagen doesn’t become collagen in or between your bones. That’s like saying eating dietary fat becomes fat in your body.
So, no, you don’t have to consume crushed cow bones.
Here are my tips for helping your body produce more collagen:
- Consume Vitamin C rich foods like oranges, red peppers, kale, and broccoli.
- Consume a complete amino acid profile eating foods like leafy greens, seeds, nuts, beans, berries, mushrooms, spirulina, and whole grains.
- Heck, even my protein shake has a complete amino acid profile and doesn’t contain crushed cow bones or any cheap by-product, like whey, from a cow.
Are you sick of chasing the latest fad that the "experts" claim is the key to your health? Take control of your health (mind + body + soul) so you can feel better than you ever have, even if you think you eat the healthiest diet ever.
