Collagen is the most abundant protein found in mammals, making up for 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content.
When we're young, our body naturally produces collagen. However, from our twenties and beyond, our collagen production slows, and our cell structures weaken.
Eating more collagen has been shown to help aid collagen production, leading to many health benefits.
Flexibility is an essential component of good health and fitness, and is especially important for seniors.
I don’t mean the kind of flexibility of being able to do the splits, or turning oneself into a human-like-pretzel.
I mean being unrestricted in your movements, being able to move all your joints as they should be moved and getting about easily in your day-to-day life, without feeling the painful niggles that comes with tight muscles and inflexible joints.
In this article, we are going to be covering everything you need to know about regaining flexibility after 60. Read it all, learn it all, put in the effort by doing it all, stay consistent and watch yourself become more flexible. Just like your younger days!
Enjoy the guide and the journey to a flexible you!

I reckon they are a great substitute for chocolate, in fact, I think I prefer them to chocolate. They are sweet and chocolately, rich and filling BUT they are healthy- full of good fats, and protein and healthy vitamins and mineral antioxidants.
