What is Collagen & Why Does it Matter?

While most people are familiar with collagen for its use in cosmetic products, it is capable of much more than just supporting firm skin and other aspects of physical beauty. In fact, if our bodies suddenly ran out of collagen, we would simply crumple to the ground!

As the main structural protein in fibrous connective tissues like tendons and ligaments, collagen is fundamental to the composition of the human body. This means that collagen supplementation can be useful for many different purposes, both cosmetic and otherwise.

The Potential Benefits of Collagen Supplementation

First off, let’s take a closer look at the most common use for collagen supplementation: skin firming. Firm, youthful skin is rich in collagen. This helps to give skin its elasticity. The wrinkling and sagging that comes with old age tends to be a result of changes in the dermal extracellular matrix, especially a decrease in collagen I content and the fragmentation of collagen fibrils.1 Thankfully, some studies have shown that the consumption of collagen peptides, antioxidants like vitamin C, and dietary minerals like magnesium have the potential to support healthy collagen production and lasting skin firmness.2,3,4

The next primary use of collagen is for supporting joint health. This is because it is a primary component in cartilage tissues which help cushion the joints. If cartilage becomes worn down, joint pain will typically ensue. To put this theory to the test, one study monitored the effects of collagen supplements on individuals who are particularly at risk of joint pain due to athletic activity. The study showed that 24 weeks of collagen supplementation did in fact help these athletes find relief from pain.5
