Collagen powders have been popular for awhile now, but what are they? How do they work? And should you start taking it?
What is Collagen
The most abundant protein in our bodies, collagen is found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels and tendons. It gives our skin elasticity and aids in digestion. As we age, the collagen in our bodies deteriorates, so the older you are, taking a collagen powder may be beneficial! It also helps boost metabolism, reduce stretch marks and cellulite, improve leaky gut, and improves and strengthens hair, nails and teeth!
