June is National Dairy Month

In an effort to get people to drink more milk, National Milk Month was introduced in the late 1930's. Since that time, it has grown to encompass more than just milk. Each June, National Dairy Month spotlights food made with dairy and the farmers who produce them. However, there an the elephant in the room. And it's not just about dairy. It's about our disconnect to our food and where it comes from. The Washington Post recently reported that 16.4 million Americans believed chocolate milk came from brown cows.

It's no surprise that bone broth fans are also collagen fans. Many health food shoppers, or those who watch for new natural beauty products in the marketplace, have heard the buzz about collagen's skin support components, particularly elasticity. Dr. Josh Axe, a burgeoning figure in the supplement marketplace, devotes an entire article to Collagen. "Collagen," he says, "also reduces cellulite and stretch marks.
