Collagen, a key building block

Did you know that collagen is one of the key building blocks to the glue that holds our bodies together?

This protein, according to a recent article in Whole Foods Magazine, makes up roughly one third of all protein in the human body. Unfortunately, production of this vital substance — which is stronger than steel in terms of its ability to stretch without ripping — deceases as we age.

And that’s where collagen supplements come in. Studies cited in the Whole Foods article have shown that taking these supplements improves the look of cellulite, helps reduce wrinkles around the eyes, and helps decrease joint pain in osteoarthritis patients.

For Goodness Sake sells several collagen supplements. Come on by and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff members about them.
