Collagen Diet With Dr. Josh Axe

Episode 1 of 1

Dr. Josh Axe is a doctor of natural medicine, a doctor of chiropractic and a clinical nutritionist with a passion for helping people get well using food as medicine. He operates one of the world's largest natural health websites: He has hosted two previous fundraising programs based on his bestselling books Eat Dirt and Keto Diet. In The Collagen Diet, Dr. Axe highlights the health benefits of collagen, a protein made in the body but which diminishes with age. Because it's also absent from the typical western diet, many Americans suffer with the consequences of a collagen deficit: achy joints, sagging skin and inflammation, a precursor to chronic disease. Dr. Axe shows viewers how to get more collagen in their diets and effective ways to support the body's ability to make it. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Beyond skin it's found in nails, bone, cartilage, tendons, muscles, the gut lining, the discs that cushion vertebrae, blood vessels, and the outer layer of organs. Because it's woven into so many tissues, it plays a vital role in countless aspects of health. In fact, new research is showing that collagen may help regenerate new tissue, aid in gut repair, boost the immune system, and even increase lifespan.
