About the Book
Dr. Josh Axe, bestselling author of Keto Diet and Eat Dirt, explains how to lose weight, prevent disease, improve your digestion, and renew your youth by taking advantage of dietary collagen.
Today, interest in dietary collagen is growing at an astounding rate, and with good reason. The benefits of a collagen-rich diet are remarkable, ranging from better weight control to enhanced digestion, clearer skin, reduced inflammation, and improved immune function.
Dietary collagen provides a unique blend of amino acids and other compounds, making it critical for everyone, including infants, young children, the elderly, athletes, pregnant women, new mothers, and adult men and women. Simply put: When we don’t get enough of the beneficial compounds found in collagen-rich foods, we experience more injuries, chronic aches and pain, digestive issues, and other symptoms associated with aging. And most people don’t get enough. Collagen is the missing ingredient that can help all of us live longer, healthier, more vital lives.
In The Collagen Diet, Dr. Axe describes how collagen helps maintain the structure and integrity of almost every part of the body. You’ll learn how your skin, hair, nails, bones, disks, joints, ligaments, tendons, arterial walls, and gastrointestinal tract all depend on the consumption of collagen-rich foods.
Featuring a twenty-eight-day meal plan, seventy mouthwatering recipes, and specific advice for supporting your body’s collagen production with exercise and lifestyle interventions, The Collagen Diet provides everything you need to take advantage of this overlooked cornerstone of modern health.
The Collagen Diet by Dr. Josh Axe is quite a remarkable book, and brings so much more to the table than the subtitle suggests. Beyond the treat of a 28-day diet plan, in this book of 300+ pages (Hardcover) Dr. Axe dives deeply into what collagen really is and its essential role in the overall human nutrition. He covers all the basics, even including some of the most modern cutting-edge theories that support stem cell growth/production, and then leans specifically into the full-scale benefits of collagen in the human body—touching on repairs/regeneration of tissue, anti-aging, and healthy gut function, discussing the prevention of a bad one, and maintaining/repair of an unhealthy gut; finally, Dr. Axe provides not just the 28-day diet plan as promised, but also a pre-3-day cleansing program, as well as 70+ recipes to help ease a beginner into the collagen health lifestyle.
The Collagen Diet could very well be Dr. Axe’s finest work yet—expressively impressive as it is simple to understand and follow.
*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. Much appreciation to Little Brown Spark Publishing/Hachette Book Group for a free copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
