There is walk-through of the basics of various benefits available from collagen, written in an approachable way. I like the recommendations for food-based methods to increase collagen levels.
Overall I really liked the approach of this book. Distilling a lot of info into easy-to-consume bites : )
I was fascinated by micro-needling or laser therapy as ways to induce or increase collagen production.
The book is succinct, pleasantly lacking in the usual filler one sees in health books. The author gets to the point, and since she is not selling anything, her credibility in this regard is good. However, several times she mentions research that has been done, but I would have liked to see citations, as it hard for the reader to find the study to which she refers.
The best, most powerful part of this book, for me, is the section discussing the microbiome of the human digestive system. Bottom line is that as we age, particularly after 70, the bacteria in our gut deteriorates with the result being a higher degree of inflammation. Some inflammation is a natural part of the defensive and healing system of the body. But many studies show higher degrees of inflammation are damaging to our health. For more info, look online for the journal entitled Inflammation Research (IR), which publishes peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of inflammation. Ways to reduce this inflammation is by supporting the gut bacteria – taking good probiotics and prebiotics and eating fermented foods become more and more important as we age.
I have a few criticisms. She could have omitted the first half because it was too technical, only making it a 5k word essay. It would have made a better brochure than a book, but at $3, it didn’t feel like a waste of money. However, if her intention was to market this toward those fluent in science, I would recommend putting citations in it. There were many references to studies, and I wanted to know more, but there was no way I could follow up on it without a DOI, citation, or title.
