What Happens When Collagen, Carob, and Hazelnut Come Together?



Collagen, hazelnut, and carob... All three are important foods known for providing youthfulness, vitality, beauty, and strength to the body. So, what happens when all of these come together? Does it take you to another level? Let's explore together below:

What is Carob and What are Its Benefits?

Carob (Ceratonia Siliqua), also known as carob or St. John's bread, is the fruit of the carob tree that grows in regions with a Mediterranean climate. It is not only a delicious snack but also a highly nutritious food.
Rich in vitamins and minerals, carob is used to treat asthma, bronchitis, and allergic asthma. It is known to be effective in the treatment of chest diseases such as shortness of breath, colds, and coughs.

With a high fiber content, carob is also a source of calcium. It is beneficial for women and children in their growth phase.
Carob, known for relieving digestive system disorders such as diarrhea and constipation, plays a crucial role in ensuring systematic digestion.
 

Containing antioxidants, carob is a powerful food against heart and vascular diseases.
Carob, with its low sugar content, helps balance blood sugar and is suitable for those looking to lose weight or manage diabetes.
Due to its natural sweet taste, carob is an excellent alternative for those avoiding refined sugar.
Popularly known for its potential aphrodisiac effects, carob is often used for this purpose. However, it's essential to note that there is no scientific evidence directly proving a relationship between carob and enhanced sexual performance.

Benefits of Hazelnuts and Potential Risks of Consuming Too Many:

Hazelnuts, when consumed in recommended amounts, are considered a very beneficial food for health. However, excessive consumption is not recommended due to their high fat and calorie content.

In 100g of hazelnuts:
- 634 calories
- 2.8-7.9% of total sugar
- 90% of total sugar is sucrose
- 1% of glucose and fructose
- 1-3.6% of starch

In diabetic nutrition, it is recommended to use monounsaturated fats instead of trans fats or saturated fats. Hazelnuts contain a significant amount of these beneficial fats. Rich in vitamin E, hazelnuts reduce inflammation, providing protection against aging, skin sagging, and diseases. Hazelnuts are full of elements that enhance brain and cognitive functions, protecting against degenerative diseases in advanced ages.
  
What is Collagen?

Collagen, often referred to as collagen in English, is the most abundant protein type in our bodies. This protein fiber makes up about one-third of all the protein in our bodies. In other words, collagen is a crucial structural protein. Many signs and changes related to aging are due to the cessation of collagen production in our bodies. Therefore, the need for external collagen supplementation arises after a certain age. It is found in bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, tendons, the circulatory system, blood vessels, digestive system, hair, nails, teeth—virtually everywhere in our bodies. The basic building block is fibroblast, the connective tissue cells.

Benefits of Collagen:
- It helps hold the body together, connecting joints and tendons. This feature is why it is recommended by many orthopedists as a permanent treatment for joint pain related to osteoarthritis.
- Collagen treatment is also widely recommended after traumas such as fractures or musculoskeletal injuries.
- By renewing dead skin cells, it increases the elasticity of our skin, keeping it firm.
- The collagen that forms ligaments and connective tissues acts as a protective barrier, shielding our skin from toxins and other harmful factors.
