Q: What the heck is collagen?
Collagen is the protein that holds everything in your body together. It makes up about 30% of all the protein in the human body, and is found in your bones, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues and skin, and plays various roles in your overall health. Collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and instigating the weakening of cartilage in joints. You can help make up for decreased collagen production by eating collagen sourced from grass-fed bovines pasture-raised in Brazil.
Q: Why should I eat collagen?
The collagen protein used in Primal Kitchen Dark Chocolate Almond Bars is collegen hydrolysate from grass-fed cows, which is broken down into individual amino acids and easier to absorb and digest, so it's a preferable alternative to taking collagen in, say, capsule form. Furthermore, it's 100% protein, and we all know the benefits of ingesting clean protein.
