Do you recommend collagen supplements?

Dr You-Jin says, “Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is found in most tissue types including skin, nails, bones, cartilage, organs to name few. We lose collagen as we age.

Collagen supplements need to contain hydrolyzed collagen where collagen has been broken down into smaller peptides, which makes it easier for the body to absorb.

Common source of collagen supplements are animal derived from cow or fish. You can find collagen from food such as bone broths.

The efficacy of collagen supplements is a subject of ongoing research and evidence is varied. Some studies have shown that they may be effective in improving skin elasticity and hydration and joint health.

Personally, I like the idea of getting extra collagen in my diet as they may be beneficial. I take Rejuvenated collagen supplements daily in the morning – they have the added bonus of antioxidant protection from acai berries, as well as hyaluronic acid and multivitamins.”
