Benefits of collagen as a natural treatment for osteoporosis

Osteoporosis tends to impact many seniors, making bones more susceptible to breaking or fractures. So, if you’re wondering whether collagen can be used as a treatment for osteoporosis, we’re pleased to say that we have the answer. Scientific studies have shown that as an alternative to pills, collagen is an effective natural treatment for osteoporosis without side effects. Read on to learn all about collagen and its benefits for osteoporosis treatment.

What is collagen?

Most people know collagen as the protein that helps people to look younger, but we’re here to tell you that it can do so much more than that. As it’s made up of 19 different amino acids, it can make your bones feel more elastic. As you get older, your bones can break more easily as collagen stores begin to decrease. The question is: can collagen really help improve your bone density and health? The simple answer is yes. Collagen can support your skin, bones, joints, muscles and tendons.

How can collagen be a natural treatment for osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a relatively common health condition, as a result of fewer bone cells containing collagen and calcium. As collagen makes up approximately 1/3 of your bone’s composition, your bones can become brittle and weak without it. It works by absorbing the shock that is put on your bones every day. A <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5793325/">recent study</a> looked at the impact of taking collagen peptide supplements over 12 months in postmenopausal women. It found that their bone mass density significantly increased, highlighting that collagen peptides help reduce the speed of bones degrading.

Collagen rich foods you should try

  • Coconut oil: Not only is this oil great due to its antioxidant properties, but it also helps improve your body’s absorption of collagen and calcium.

  • Dark green vegetables: Vegetables like spinach, kale and cabbage are often high in calcium.

  • Vitamin C-rich foods: Foods rich in vitamin C are great for your body’s production of collagen.
