Can Collagen and Biotin Slow Age-Related Hair Loss?

Hair loss is the least of your worries, right? Well, yes and no. Whether it's genetically motivated or the result of an underlying illness or condition, thinning hair can feel like a neon sign calling the world's attention to us in a very unwanted way. However, it can be difficult for others to understand why it is such a big deal. After all, undergoing chemotherapy, having a serious thyroid issue, going through menopause, or one of the other myriad things that cause hair loss are far more serious than having to clean the shower drain or wearing a hat. Or so we're told.

It is a big deal, though. Hair is culturally a big deal. Being raised in a world that glorifies Rapunzel, Lady Godiva, Jennifer Aniston, and Dolly Parton (even though she wears wigs!) makes it difficult to embrace thinning hair. And when we are experiencing losses in other areas of our lives, we want some things to just feel normal!

Can You Take Supplements While Fasting?
Fasting isn’t a new thing, the human species has been fasting and feasting for ages! Cavemen 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. Food preservation and storage is a relatively new invention - the cavemen certainly didn’t have a way to store foods without them going bad. 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. 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.

Are Autophagy and Ketosis the Same Thing?
If you're interested in intermittent fasting or diets that promote health and longevity, then you may have heard the terms autophagy and ketosis. But are autophagy and ketosis the same thing or somehow related? First, let's clear up any confusion with clear definitions of both processes. Once we fully understand autophagy and ketosis, it's easy to see the mutual effects and the differences. Intermittent fasting can activate both ketosis and autophagy, which results in a range of health benefits, including weight loss, treating type 2 diabetes, and enhancing energy.

Autophagy Fasting and collagen: A new way of intermittent fasting
It really is incredible how the human body takes care of itself. Without us even noticing, our body is creating new cells and recycling old ones to keep us "up to date" and firing on all cylinders. Autophagy is the natural process in which the body takes old and damaged cell debris and turns it into useful amino acids, creating new, healthy, optimally-performing cells. While autophagy happens naturally in the human body, it can be harnessed through a simple meal plan, fasting schedule, and a couple of scoops of collagen.
