Collagen and a Paleo Diet
The Paleolithic diet is a fairly popular diet, sometimes also referred to as the caveman diet. The idea behind this diet trend is that the best diet is likely the one our ancestors followed millennia ago before the inception of processed foods and fat-filled junk food. The question that is generally considered the base of the diet is: what would a caveman eat? This doesn’t, of course, mean hunting for your own food and avoiding the grocery store. Instead, it means avoiding processed foods and sticking to a simple diet of organic fruits and veggies and grass-fed meats with some nuts and seafood thrown in. Claimed benefits are a cleaner lifestyle, less trans-fats, and better levels of vitamins and minerals than the typical American diet of today.
But does collagen fit in? Of course our cavemen ancestors did not have access to a collagen powder supplement like Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen but that doesn’t mean it is incompatible with this diet. Cavemen would have used every part of the animals they hunted meaning that bone marrow, high in collagen, would have been a part of their diet that is not consumed as frequently today. Because Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen is bone-broth based and a great source of protein, something this diet values, it is a perfect supplement to pair with a paleo lifestyle. A scoop of Traditional Tonic dissolved in a glass of water (yes, it dissolves in cold liquid!) will provide you with 10 grams of protein. Plus, Traditional Tonic helps support the natural processes of your digestive system which may help your body adjust to a diet it isn’t used to.
