Q: What does Collagen do for the skin and body?
A: Collagen is a protein present in all of your body’s organs and tissues. Type 1 collagen provides the matrix that sustains the body’s structure in hair, skin, nail, and bones. Collagen is too large of a molecule to be absorbed topically on the skin.
Collagen’s main function is to sustain tendons, skin and cartilage. It provides integrity, firmness and elasticity to their structures.
Maximizing collagen levels in your body will keep your skin supple, minimizing wrinkles more than any other protein supplement

It’s best to get a head start on the collagen decline by adding dietary collagen in your 20s.
