How Collagen Supplements Work And Benefits The Skin
Collagen is a no more hidden ingredient from the wellness world right now, especially everyone aware of its swear beauty benefits. Collagen trend has spread from cosmetics to treating disease. Collagen is the complex structural protein that includes specific amino acids that act as a building block for the most part of your body like skin, muscles and tendons, bone, connective tissue, joints, and teeth. Collagen is also present in parts of our nails and hair. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body because collagen forms up to 25 to 35 percent of the overall body protein contents. It's impossible to measure the collagen level in your body, but you can tell when it's level of production falls.
Collagen is holding up the whole body by its insoluble fibrous structure for its indisputable tensile strength. By study, collagen is available in 28 types; each type is different in its structure and function. Each collagen type repeatedly contains glycine, proline, arginine, and hydroxyproline amino acids. Out of these 28, only type I, II, III, IV, and V collagen form the 80 to 90 percent of the whole collagen in your body. Type I collagen is most abundant among the other two, which can be found in the skin, tendons, and bones. Type II and type V are present in cartilage and promote joint health.
When our own body forms the collagen is called endogenous collagen, and collagen, which synthetically prepared, is called exogenous collagen. Collagen is formed in the extracellular matrix, which is secreted by the specialized cells called fibroblast, which is present under the skin and connective tissue. As we grow older, collagen production declines, and the cell structure in the body get weakens. Less collagen loses skin elasticity, which serves the main reason for skin sagging in older age. Studies revealed that taking collagen from your diet or externally supports plump skin and reduce wrinkles. Collagen taken from outside is categorized into two; Marine sourced collagen and Bovine sourced collagen peptides.
In last year it is measured hike in sales of collagen supplements by 34 percent, which is statistically improving from the previous year. Collagen supplements expeditiously level up the collagen mark in your body and help to sustain that level in the body.

The mediocrity of life is nothing but failure in performing excellence or extraordinary performance in all areas of life or even many areas of your life.
Mediocre people will have their own choice not to do and living a middle-class life. Some people are deluded so much in their fate that they think it cannot be changed, what all bad happening is written in our fate. With this thought they cannot be upgraded in life and wish to do something different and good is diminished.
Remember mediocrity is not a curse, it's just your choice not to give your best, not to explore full measure of your gift and talents, and to shun personal growth and development.
Mediocre people want to settle in one particular field and one company. For this kind of mentality people its very obvious that they will do exactly the same what boss asks for, without any question, and they just obey their boss and keep head down and do their work. In this scenario, chances of firing people are rare but chances in remaining at the same position are high without any increments. These people stay in the same company for so long and later if they wish to change company other company will doubt on your capability and arise a question why haven't you moved at all in these years and here you lose your value.
Sometimes this mediocrity cannot be a threat to you in front of some managers. Some managers cannot bear it when an employee is too ambitious and too smart.
No high risk of failure in mediocrity but less risk of getting fired. Now you can understand you cannot compare appealing a mediocre life to joy and vitality experience when living a daring adventure life.
Mediocre always have one hand distant from learning and growth and they don't like the concept of challenge. Being mediocre seek the delusion of failure at times. Many times it happened those who perform well in part of life will have always had to strive longer and harder path because of mediocrity.
If you want to be out of mediocrity just once taste the excellence. Never mind, if you are mediocre at a lot of things but constantly probing those things for gaining knowledge and experience this can bring change in your personality.
Be bold, fearless and think you are the lion who never sleeps. What kind of mindset you have in defining mediocrity.

Each tunnel computes as long as 520 meters. Also, 84 major bridges it goes through which compose most amazing views of the journey.

Though it was a little raining (which was unexpected), I managed to take some beautiful snaps. I enjoyed the ever-flowing Gosthani river whimsically. Raining indeed made the colour of the river to a slightly muddy.
Borra caves are situated on the Ananthagiri hills of the Araku Valley. These caves were discovered by famous British geologist William King in 1807. Borra caves are million years aged and are considered the deepest cave in India.

The magnificence of Coffee Museum is shown via dioramas, the origins of coffee started in Ethiopia, and its migration all the way through Araku Valley. This museum is owned by Prakash Rao, who brought the concept of coffee catering service in Araku in 1930. And in 1954, he opened this Coffee Museum. There is an entry fee of 10 rupees per person, which is very reasonable.
Ananthagiri Coffee Plantation
Ananthagiri hills had linked to the route of Araku trip, so this became the part of my Araku trip. The place is heaven for coffee lovers like me where coffee is planted, harvested, and dried. Most of the tribal's living is based on the coffee plantation. Tall trees of pepper give the greenery and shade for berries-loaded coffee shrubs. This place is a must in Araku trip if you are a nature lover.
Ananthagiri hills offer the best trekking routes for visitors. Some adventures travellers find Araku valley as trekking place though valley has many picturesque lands with lots of greenery.

No travel diary of Vizag can be complete without mentioning the taste of the magnificent chicken dish here. I had tasted this divine tribal dish and my lunch at the "Annapurna Hotel". Araku especial "Bamboo chicken," which is typically prepared in Bamboo sticks and leaves the bamboo flavour in the chicken. So don't forget to taste this classic dish, and I guarantee you will not forget the taste of it; I still have that mouthwatering taste on my tongue. The tribal make this cuisine of preparing food in bamboo as their living options. During the journey, I had "Barbecue Bamboo Chicken" which is prepared by the street vendors and that was awesome in taste as you can see how tempting in the picture. This street dish was very cheap, but still yummy. Also, check out my Sula Vineyard Trip.
