1. Why should we take collagen supplements?

A-It is not easy to absorb it in meals.
On the one hand, foods that contain collagen are consumed in small quantities (fish skin and bones, cartilage in meat, broths, jellies...). On the other hand, the collagen that we eat in food must first be hydrolyzed, to be bioefficient and able to be absorbed by the body. This means that it must be fractionated into amino acids.

B-Collagen is lost with age
Collagen loss begins at age 25, and 1.5% begins to be lost per year of age. To prevent, it would be a good time to start taking hydrolyzed marine collagen supplements.

The loss becomes more pressing after the age of 40 , where the oxidation process also begins to manifest itself. From this age onwards, it should already be an essential basic.

Collagen also helps to improve muscle mass and strengthen all the fibers around the joint, which helps to support it and prevent it from being stressed as much.

C-Beauty benefits of taking collagen

Collagen is like "drinking a cream" whose effects will be felt throughout the body, not just the skin, providing luminosity, hydration and firmness. If not, we will also improve the elasticity and health of all the tissue in our body, such as arteries, veins and organs.

Type II collagen is the main component of cartilage tissues , although it is also found in intervertebral discs and in various embryonic stages.
