Collagen is something that everyone needs in their body, after the age of 20 our bodies produces 1 percent less collagen each and every year. That means by the them you turn 40 your body will be producing less 20% collagen and it might be apparent by the wrinkles on your skin. This is why it’s important to use a good collagen supplement which will keep your skin looking and feeling young. Collagen is easily absorbed by the body since the body naturally produces it.
One question most people want to know is can collagen supplements cause weight gain? The answer to that question is no, supplements for collagen are not intended to be a protein supplement and would need to be taken separately, there are some companies that do combine them both (which would be indicated on the label) but the majority of the collagen you find in stores are will not contain enough protein for you to gain weight.
This same rule applies for using collagen for weight loss, that’s not the real purpose of collage. One of the benefits of taking collagen is to help keep you looking young and it does this by tightening your skin which helps you prevent/heal sagging skin and loose skin as well as reducing wrinkles, helping your hair, skin, & nails grow strong, preventing arthritis, slowing down hair loss and promoting the healthy functions of your organs which all contain a certain amount of collagen.
