Are Collagen Supplements Really Effective?
What is collagen anyway? Why do we claim that it's the fountain of youth?
We already have collagen in our bodies. In fact, it is the most abundant protein in our bodies. Collagen makes up 80% of our skin and works together with elastin to keep our skin firm and elastic. But as we age, natural collagen production in our bodies decline.
To make it easier for us to understand, picture this, "Our body’s collagen [are] 'ropes of protein in the skin.' When we’re young, the rope remains tight, but as we age, the ends begin to fray."
As we get older, our bodies cannot replace the collagen we are losing quickly. So how do we replenish lost collagen?
Our answer is taking collagen supplements. Studies show that doing so consistently for several months can improve skin elasticity (making wrinkles and fine lines smoother) and increase bone density (reduce joint, back, and knee pain).
Here are authentic collagen supplements from Japan that you can try:
