Collagen and our Bodies
As we get older our collagen levels slowly start to decline each year starting in our mid-twenties. This leads the skin to sag, wrinkle, and lose elasticity that keeps our skin looking radiant and youthful. Over time the body’s muscles, tendons, and even bones lose important nutrients that keep them healthy and strong. This is all due to the slow decline in collagen every year; and those years do add up quick. Diabetics lose collagen faster than those without diabetes, and can cause more serious problems such as aging faster and slower recovery time for injuries.
Collagen and Diabetics
Diabetic diets usually consist of low carb, high protein food items to maintain stable levels of blood sugar and insulin levels. This prevent long term damage from energy level crashes and spikes. So why is collagen so important? Collagen naturally supports healthy skin, muscles, and tendons, but it does so much more. Collagen has glycine, an important amino acid. When the body cannot maintain enough glycine production on its own it starts to slow collagen production. When this happens, the body will begin aging, and low levels of glycine are extremely prevalent in those who have diabetes. Here is the good news! When Traditional Tonic
is taken on regular basis, it can offset energy spikes that lead to crashes, keep skin rejuvenated, restore muscle and tendon health, cleanse the digestive system, and add necessary protein for low calorie cost. Our Traditional Tonic

This type of protein has a higher tolerance of glucose than other types of protein commonly found in your diet. It is never too late or too early to start taking collagen, so take your life in your own hands and help your body today.
