What is Collagen?

Collagen is a vital protein produced by the body that is central to the structural aspects of the body. [1] Collagen forms the structure of much of the body, and has recently found traction within skincare and shampoo products because of its potential to provide your skin and hair with moisture and strength. As you age, the amount of collagen that your body produces decreases, which can cause your skin to become dry and wrinkled and your hair too thin. [2]

Potential Benefits of Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein within the body. Because your body produces less collagen as you age, many consumers supplement it into their diet in hopes of maintaining healthy skin, hair, nails, and bones. [3][4] A 2015 study conducted by the Journal of Medical Nutrition and Nutraceuticals found that women who consumed a beverage mixed with collagen daily for 12 weeks experienced increased skin moisture and a significant decrease in wrinkle depth. Data suggests that collagen may strengthen skin, hair, and nails by preventing brittleness. [5] Other health benefits which the supplementation of collagen may provide include the decrease of bone atrophy and improved joint pain relief. Some studies suggest that collagen may improve bone density and joint strength. Low bone density and weak joints are significant factors linked to fractures and tears within the body. [6]
