Benefits of Collagen
By Christine Cheng, R.Ph.
Q: I’d like to get something for my mom to help her with her health. What is one supplement that would give her the most benefit?
There are many supplements that would fit that bill! However, collagen is one that would give her visible benefits to her skin, hair, and nails while conferring health benefits internally as well, for example, to help strengthen her bones and joints. Look for a supplement that contains “pre-digested” collagen, i.e., collagen that has already been broken down into smaller peptide fragments. This is beneficial because these smaller peptides are more easily absorbed and assimilated by the cells that will use them to build up our tissues. Smoother feeling skin can be felt in as little as 28 days with daily collagen supplementation. Helping her feel better from the inside out can go far to help her feel as beautiful as you think she is!
