Are you losing hair, muscle mass and skin elasticity?? If so, collagen loading could help you!
What is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that is a main building block of your skin, hair, muscles, cartilage, and ligaments. I have been mixing it into my coffee for years. Just one scoop and you get frothy coffee with extra benefits.
As we age, we naturally start losing skin elasticity, bone density, muscle mass and of course, hair loss becomes a problem. Collagen, being a naturally-produced nutrient in our body starts to decline after the age of 25. As collagen production declines, fine lines become apparent, our hair starts to fall, and our bones weaken.
To look and feel more youthful we can take collagen supplements and practice what’s called ‘collagen loading.’
What is Collagen Loading?
Collagen loading is when you increase your collagen levels over a short period of time. All you need to do is multiply your daily collagen intake through supplements. So, the goal is getting 2-3 times the serving of collagen supplements into your daily routine for 2 – 3 weeks.
You can go the natural route and include more collagen-boosting foods into your diet such as chicken, fish, bone broth, citrus fruits, and leafy greens. However, you won’t be able to get the amount your body needs through food alone.
You can find all sorts of collagen supplements in your health food store but as with everything else, quality is key. When I first started putting a scoop in my coffee, I used Dr. Axe. It was one of the first reels I posted on my Instagram account. Now, Dr. Axe has a line called Ancient Nutrition so for three weeks of collagen loading I am using his supplements.
How can I get more Collagen into my Diet?
For joint support, gut support and beauty support, Ancient Nutrition offers a variety of high quality collagen supplements. You can pour 2-3 scoops of it in tea or coffee and even a sparkling drink. You can even make a superfood smoothie with the Multi Collagen Protein Ancient Nutrition offers.
An easy way to practice collagen loading to retain muscle mass, grow healthy hair, and reduce wrinkles is by adding it to the drinks you consume throughout the day.
When you feel good everything else falls into balance. Try collagen loading out. It might be just what you need.
I had such a lovely time at The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas. There were tables of ladies chatting, children learning this lovely ritual and gentlemen enjoying their tea.
Consider tea for the holidays with your whole family. It makes a great tradition.
Exquisitely executed, Tea at The Adolphus is served in the beautiful French Room dining room. A storied tradition, the tea service is filled with delight and surprise, from the menu curated by our culinary team to the custom china.
During each sitting, guests can enjoy a three-course menu of tea sandwiches, scones and pastries paired with loose leaf teas from local purveyor, Zatki, who creates a special tea blend just for The Adolphus.
Both the green tea and the black tea were so expertly chosen and brewed. They were delicious and smooth as silk.
Our champagne wishes and caviar dreams came true during our tea service. We enjoyed Regis Ova Siberian Reserve Caviar. Its clean and lightly creamy taste is perfect to enjoy on its own which we did or add buckwheat blinis with crème fraîche and shaved yolk and all the other toppings which we also did.
Often the phrases “afternoon tea” and “high tea” are used interchangeably as many mistakenly believe that there is no difference. Both tea traditions are steeped in British history and the differences, subtle as they may be, are a direct result of their origins.
The origins of afternoon tea show clearly it was the preserve of the rich in the 19th century. For workers in the newly industrialized Britain, tea time had to wait until after work. By that hour, tea was generally served with heartier dishes which were substantially more than just tea and cakes.
