Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is the substance that holds the whole body together.
It is found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons, where it forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure.
Your body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down as you age, resulting in wrinkles, sagging skin and weaker cartilage in your joints.
Supplementing with collagen can start building those tissues again.

Tim joins Andrea and Lisa to explain why collagen supplementation is essential for healthy aging, as well as the amount of collagen you should be getting on a daily basis.
