This week, we want to talk about the scary truth behind the big collagen fad…
People are adding powdered collagen which comes from the skin and bones of cows, pigs, chicken and fish to their smoothies, coffee and more thinking it will benefit their skin and joints.
Animal collagen doesn’t build your collagen. It breaks down into amino acids that go anywhere in the body, not necessarily the skin.
But not only is this pseudoscience, it’s having dire consequences on the rainforest. ⬇️
Recently, a startling investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism exposed the dark side of the collagen industry.
👉It revealed that multinational companies sourcing collagen from Brazilian cattle farms have played a significant role in deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest and Indigenous land invasions. One of the brands implicated in this scandal is Nestlé-owned Vital Proteins, a popular supplements brand endorsed by Jennifer Aniston.
Watch the above video for more information on this. 👆
