I have been getting articles from this great website called Draxe.com . You can actually sign up for free and get his articles, its worth it as he has some great information.

The article I am presenting you today is especially interesting to us girls although these days I am sure the boys would be interested as well.
Its all about fish collagen. Heard of it? I have heard of just plain collagen powder but not this. ‘Fish collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body and has superior bioavailability over bovine or porcine collagens’.
Fish collagen can be absorbed at a higher level through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream and carried throughout the body. This leads to collagen synthesis in the joint tissues, bones, skin dermis and many other essential body systems. Sounds like good stuff to me.

The health benefits of this collagen is
1. Anti aging
2. Helps regenerate and heal bones
3. Heals wounds
4. Increases your protein intake
5. Has antibacterial qualities

This collagen was first found about 1985 by a pharmacist extracting it from the skin of fish. Sometimes it can be called marine collagen but marine collagen could be extracted from shellfish and jellyfish which is not recommended so keep that in mind.

This protien comes from the scales, skin, bones and fins of fresh or saltwater fish and parts we do not normally eat like the eyes and the rest of the head. You can also get this protein through making a fish stock by boiling the whole of the fish (gutted). Fish collagen is high in essential and non-essential amino acids.

Anyway it all sounds good. I think I may make a face mask out of it see if it plumps up the wrinkles.
Will let you know.

Apparently it does not smell like fish so you don’t have to worry about the fishy smell on your face or food. Hydrolyzed fish collagen is the best as it is broken into small molecules and easily absorbed.
For me I think its worth giving a try.

If you want to read more about this go to Dr Axes website, sign up and get his news letters.

I have found a site on Amazon that sells this collagen – Fish Collagen – Amazon

Poem Friday 02/22/2013 – But Today It Ended In Tears

DSC_0096

The alarm went off at 4am still dark not yet dawn
The only thing from my mouth is a constant yawn

Yes the surf is up and Grandson needs that fix
School is not for three hours so can surf till six

admittedly it was a beautiful morning once the sun did rise
But looking back staying in bed would have been rather wise

For the first hour and a half it was all smooth and great
Surfing up and down waves and waiting for the next wave talking to his mate

Get away from those bloody rocks I would give him a yell
I don’t know if he heard I could not tell

Anyway to cut a long story short
Surfing can be rather a dangerous sport

He was heeding to my call that time was running out
It was close to six, time to get out I had to shout

Well the next wave was a beauty as you can see
So smooth, so long, great height, perfect as it could be

Unfortunately on the wave he had to avoid his surfing mate
Stayed on the wave to long, now heading for the rocks at a fast rate

The end result was not a pretty sight
Lots of bruising, blood but he is alright

Not the same for board, damaged rather bad
no fins left, big scratch, costly, going to make his bank balance very sad

Surfing is a great love that can be with him for many years
A love affair to excite him, he will be back again tomorrow, but today it ended in tears
