Collagen: The basics

by Natasha Whiting

Although collagen is one of the most beneficial supplements you can add to your daily routine, many people know very little about it. Read on to find out more about this key addition to your routine, and why it's so important for long term health.

What is collagen?

Collagen, particularly marine collagen, is a protein that is found in the bodies of fish. It contributes to the structure of skin, bones, tendons and even organs of organisms, and in the case of marine collagen, is collected from fish and other sea life like jellyfish.

What effect does collagen have on skin?

One of the most common uses of collagen is for healthier skin. Collagen has the effect of firming up the structure of skin, acting in the same manner as a frame does around a mattress. Taking marine collagen supplements, such as drinkable supplements, promotes firmer and plumper skin. Furthermore, it can help to reduce acne, as the structure of your skin could be far healthier with collagen.

What effect does collagen have on bones and joints?

As collagen's origins are in keeping bones and joints strong, you can take collagen supplements if you're looking for ways to improve the condition of your bones and joints. It can work to reinforce the structure of your tendons and ligaments, reducing the intensity of joint pain and increasing mobility in the long term.

What other effects can collagen have?

Collagen is also found in hair roots. This means that collagen capsules contribute to the strengthening of your hair follicles, enabling far more effective hair growth. Your hair may grow stronger and thicker where previously it looked weak or wispy. Combined with the benefits of healthier skin and bones, collagen might be the perfect supplement to help you look and feel great.
