Nine years ago, I found myself in a terribly unhealthy place. I was eating fast food all the time, I had low energy, and I was plagued by horrible allergies and congestion.
Finally, I became fed up of being in a constant state of unwellness and decided to do a major audit of my health regimen. Along this journey, I discovered Dr. Weston A. Price.
Through extensive global research, Dr. Price discovered that people in healthy cultures ate traditional diets. Among many other principles, these diets are absent of processed foods and included whole-animal consumption—muscle meat, organs, bones, and fat—as some of the most important sources of nutrients.
Through following Dr. Price’s traditional philosophies, I discovered collagen, a long-chain amino acid that is a foundational protein of all animals (including humans).
Alongside a shift to healthy eating and regular exercise, the inclusion of supplemental collagen in my diet was pivotal in achieving a state of health.
My digestion improved, I had fewer food allergies, and I was sleeping better than I ever had before. And I’m not alone: Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Melissa Hartwig, founder of the Whole30 program, claim to love the benefits of collagen, too.
