Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and it provides structure to bones. It is also a major component of skin and connective tissue, including tendons and ligaments.
It’s important to support collagen products with the right supplements: collagen supplements provide the body with the right amino acids, vitamins, and nutrients you need to produce strong, healthy collagen and support hydrated, glowing skin.
The majority of collagen supplements are made with animal products, usually from livestock or fish.
