How can Collagen support my gut health and improve my gut microbiome?Updated a year ago

Leaky gut is becoming more of a common term, with breakages present in your gut lining and gastrointestinal tract. When gaps or breakages occur in your gut lining, food particles can be absorbed into your bloodstream leading to an influx of inflammation. 

We now know that there are a number of illnesses that can stem directly from a leaky gut, with inflammation or irritation stemming from the health of your guts themselves. 

Collagen helps to heal your gut and improve your gut health by providing a protective lining to the gastrointestinal tract. Studies have found that in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, serum concentrations of collagen are decreased. 

Because the amino acids in collagen build the tissue that lines the colon and GI tract, supplementing with collagen can help treat gastrointestinal symptoms and disorders, including leaky gut syndrome, IBS, acid reflux, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis.
