Growing up, I remember every weekend my grandmother would take my brother and me to a local bagel shop in my neighborhood and it seemed like every weekend the bagels were better than the week before.

By Jen Hazelwood on February 23, 2018

Let's talk about collagen and how it functions in your body! 

Did you know that collagen is the most abundant protein in your body? It is in your muscles, bones, tendons, skin, blood vessels, and digestive system. It is often referred to as the glue of the body. Sounds like a very important thing to have, doesn't it?
