What Affects Your Collagen Levels?
Collagen is a vital protein for the health of your skin and nearly every connective tissue in your body. It is like the glue that holds everything together and the grease that helps all the bits and bobs to move together smoothly. Collagen replaces and restores dead skin cells and forms a network of cells in the dermis upon which new healthy skin cells can grow. It keeps connective tissues strong and flexible so you can build more lean muscle mass and keep your skin young and healthy. Unfortunately, there is no blood test or other magic test that can be run to measure the amount of collagen in your body. The main thing you can do is to understand what will cause your collagen levels to decrease and to look and listen for the warnings your body may give you when you don’t have enough.

Can You Take Supplements While Fasting?
Fasting isn’t a new thing, the human species has been fasting and feasting for ages! It has been used not only for weight loss but to improve concentration, extend life, prevent Alzheimer's, prevent insulin resistance, and even reverse the entire aging process. Food preservation and storage is a relatively new invention - the cavemen certainly didn’t have a way to store foods without them going bad. They would hunt, gather, and feast because they didn’t know when they would be able to feast again. And when food was unavailable, they just didn’t eat. In recent years, the practice of fasting for health benefits has re-entered the public consciousness and millions of people are beginning to rediscover the powerful positive changes that can be achieved through intermittent and extended fasting.
