What is collagen?
Collagen is one of the most abundant protein in our body. Made-up of amino acids, collagen is a major component of connective tissues in different parts of our body, including skin, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. However, the body naturally reduces collagen production as we age, which causes skin to lose its elasticity. As a result, wrinkles begin to appear. To tighten and firm their skin, many people take collagen supplements to maintain their level of collagen.
How does our body absorb collagen supplements?
The collagen molecule isn't directly absorbed by the body but has to be broken down, by the process of hydrolyzation, into its component parts which are then more easily absorded during digestion into the bloodstream and accumulated in the skin.
The benefits of taking collagen supplements

Many studies showed that consuming collagen supplements can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis by increasing bone density weakened by the aging process.

As one ages, our joints start to break down. In particular, the spongy cartilage that protects the ends of the bones begins to wear away. Studies have shown that consuming collagen may help promote pain relief for patients suffering from osteoarthritis. 。
