Avocados are a great source of alpha-linolenic acid, or omega-3 acids, plus they contain powerful antioxidants with protective effects on the nervous system. Healthy fats prevent further loss of joint cartilage and reduce pain in arthritis.

Blueberries and raspberries contain, among other things, quercetin, anthocyanins and phenolic acids, which exhibit strong anti-inflammatory effects and reduce joint damage associated with the inflammation that occurs there. It is also a source of vitamin C, which supports the body's natural production of collagen.

Why is it worth supplementing with collagen?

.

After 25 years of age your body's natural collagen production begins to declineand. This is why the first wrinkles appear at this age and the skin loses its firmness. It is then worth considering collagen supplementation.

.

Taking hydrolysed fish collagen in a minimum 2,500 mg serving for 3 months has an impact on how your hair, skin and nailsand look. Collagen is also an ally of joints, bones and muscles  - to keep you fit and active for as long as possible.
