And collagen is just as important. In fact, 70% of our skin is made from it.
Collagen has anti-aging benefits, such as a decrease in wrinkles, and an increase in skin elasticity and hydration. I personally suffer from dry skin year round, and supplementing with collagen helps retain moisture.
Collagen also helps in joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation. A study of patients receiving 5-7 grams of collagen peptides experienced a 70% response rate for significant or noticeable improvement in joint issues. Another study demonstrated collagen peptides to be 25% more effective in protecting against osteoarthritis pain and stiffness, compared to other anti-inflammatories.
So, add some collagen to your diet and reap the rewards!
