While we naturally produce collagen to support healthy skin, hair, nails and joints, our bodies create less of it over time as soon as we hit our early 20s. Environmental factors can also contribute to the depletion of collagen such as pollution, sun exposure and even dry skin.
Collagen is known to promote circulation as well as strengthen the structure of our connective tissue, bones, and ligaments.
Regularly consuming collagen peptides can slow the signs of aging and reduce dryness. Thanks to collagen’s ability to strengthen our skin, several studies have shown increased hydration, elasticity, and a more youthful appearance as a result.
