How collagen improves gut health

Listen to your gut instinct. A well-balanced digestive system can reduce stress levels, improve mood and boost physical health.

Inflammation of the gut, stomach acid levels and poor digestion can wreak havoc on how we look and feel. But the unique properties and amino acid profile of collagen allow this unique protein to deliver many health benefits, particularly to how our gut functions.

Why good gut function is essential to health

Research has shown that poor gut health has a negative effect on both our physical and mental health.

Our gut and our brain are intrinsically linked. Sometimes called our “second brain”, the gastrointestinal system (GIS) is an extremely intelligent and responsive group of critical digestive organs. The GIS communicates with the central nervous system (CNS) via a process called the gut-brain axis (GBI).

We’ve all had a gut feeling, felt sick with nerves or had butterflies in our tummy. These sensations are because our brain and gut communicate with each other all the time via the GBI.

Poor gut health has been linked to a range of symptoms. Anxiety, depression, weight gain, bloating and a foggy head have all been linked to poor digestive health.

Benefits of collagen for gut health

Collagen is a special type of structural protein. It’s the most abundant protein in the body and contains lots of useful amino acids which support gut health. Collagen is hard to come by in modern diets and our natural production of collagen begins to decline as we age.

Collagen aids in digestion

When ingested, collagen surrounds itself with water and stomach acid as it moves through the gastrointestinal tract helping move food and breaking down carbohydrates and proteins.

Collagen helps repairs the intestinal and stomach lining

Collagen is a key component in healing the intestinal wall and may help to repair and heal the lining of our stomachs.

Collagen regulates stomach acid regulation

Kollo for Gut health

Research has shown that collagen regulates the secretion of gastric juices to allow proper digestion and prevent an excess of acid which causes heartburn, stomach ulcers and other digestive problems.

Collagen helps leaky gut and IBS

Glutamine has been identified as a key component in inhibiting inflammation of the gut wall and healing leaky gut syndrome. Studies have shown a link between inflammatory bowel disease and decreased collagen levels.
