Collagen for Bone Health

What is Collagen?

The most abundant protein in the body is collagen. Collagen makes up about 90 per cent of the body’s connective tissue.This is important for a number of reasons, not the least, musculoskeletal health, which is important to avoid degenerative joint diseases, degenerative (spinal) disc diseases, disc herniations (or “slipped” discs), tendonitis/osis, osteoporosis, sprains and strains, etc.

Why is Collagen Important?

Collagen essentially provides the tensile strength of tissues. If you don’t have enough collagen or your collagen is “weak” or poorly formed, you’ll be susceptible to injuries and all types of musculoskeletal disorders.

There are 29 types of collagen throughout the human body. Collagen is a major component in many tissues, especially bone, cartilage (including intervertebral discs), tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, blood vessels, lung tissue, and even the cornea of the eye. Collagen is vital to the functioning of your body. Remember, structure determines function, and collagen is a major part of your structure. So now let’s discuss how to make and maintain strong collagen.

First, you need (to digest and absorb) adequate amounts of protein in order to supply the raw materials. Remember, the building blocks of protein are amino acids. Any amino acids can be used in some areas on the collagen molecule, but the key ones are proline, lysine, and glycine. You shouldn’t have to be concerned with eating large quantities of food that contain these specific amino acids in high levels. Focus on getting an adequate amount of protein from a variety of sources and that should cover your bases. Although, vegetarians and vegans may want to seek out foods high in these amino acids to be sure. And, those with injuries and/or chronic musculoskeletal conditions may want to ensure higher than typical amounts of these amino acids.

Collagen is important for more than your musculoskeltal health. It’s absolutely vital for your (cardio)vascular system. Also, remember that skin is dependent on collagen (among other things), and without sufficient amounts, wrinkles will result. I wonder if those collagen injections people get could be used for more than just vanity. And when the visual effects wear off, does the body “steal” it from (say) the lips to put it where it’s more important for survival? I hope so.

Tips for a Healthy Summer of Fun

HYDRATION 

Stay hydrated, this simple suggestion will go a long way to your summer enjoyment. Because when we are dehydrated we suffer not only on the physical level but dehydration contributes to crankiness, moodiness and general malaise. Dehydration is severely taxing on the body particularly the kidneys and adrenals. Drinking plenty of water and using Mega Hydrate are two surefire ways to combat dehydration.

Step One consume more water than you think you need, drink even if you are not thirsty.  Step Two, use Patrick Flannigan’s MegaHydrate daily, this product contains an abundance of bio available hydrogen ions. These compounds assist the body to better utilize the water we drink. With enhanced utilization of water we achieve better cell hydration and cellular waste removal. When using Mega Hydrate the results are we are better hydrated and more sufficiently detoxified by the water we drink than if we did not use this product. Also the freely available hydrogen ions in Mega Hydrate act as extreme anti-oxidants, quenching the free radicals desire for extra electrons without creating more free radicals.

ALL NATURAL SUN SCREEN

When choosing a sun screen it is important to use a naturally sourced product. This is because of the potential for petro chemical based products to negatively react with the sun. Which can result in toxins being generated that are then absorbed by the skin. The safe all natural sun screen we carry is a unique combination of high quality oils, MSM, and antioxidants that
provide enhanced protection against the free radical damage that occurs
during prolonged exposure to the sun. 
The main sun protection compound in this product is Zinc Oxide. Which is a natural mineral that is included to shield against the
potentially harmful effects of the sun. It forms a protective barrier
over the surface of the skin. It is the only natural ingredient on the
market recognized by the FDA as a Category I skin protectant. Zinc
oxide is known to be stable and will not degrade in the sun. This product is rated at SPF 30 and is available Unscented and Orange scented.
