Is collagen overrated?

by Natasha Whiting

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in our bodies. However, when we reach the age of 20, its production starts to slow down, and along with it our elastin levels. This is when signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and fine lines, start to appear. One well-known solution for this is marine collagen supplements. However, a common question that we receive is whether marine collagen is overrated. Let's take a look.

Anti-ageing benefits

One of the most popular reasons why millions of women – including celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Huda Kattan – use marine collagen is for its anti-ageing benefits. It’s associated with plumper skin that can lead to a more youthful glow, reduced fine lines and fewer wrinkles. If you take one sachet of our award-winning Kollo Health marine collagen every day, your skin will start to look younger and more rejuvenated. It’s no wonder that the same technology is used in collagen-infused products such as lip glosses and that collagen supplements are also taken to help reduce the signs of cellulite.

Arthritis relief

It has been argued by some sources that marine collagen supplements can be used to great effect by people who suffer from arthritis, as it provides relief from joint pain. This is based on a study of adults who took 2 grams of collagen a day for 70 days. Those who took collagen experienced a significant reduction in joint pain and were able to better engage in physical activity compared to those who did not take it.

Promote weight loss

Another benefit to taking marine collagen is that it can help with weight loss, although perhaps not in the way that many people first think. Collagen has been shown to make people feel full for longer, which you don’t get with other proteins. This aids weight loss by reducing feelings of hunger, and therefore, how many calories you eat in a day. Why not try collagen out for yourself and see how it benefits you?
