Collagen is what gives the dermis (the thick inner layer of our skin) its firm structure. As we age, the production of collagen in our bodies diminishes resulting in the loss of firmness and elasticity, and the appearance of wrinkles. Herbalife SKIN® Collagen Complex Drink Mix nourishes the skin from within and provides the nutrients to maintain youthful and radiant skin.
Benefits of Collagen Supplements
Two types of supplements are gaining popularity — hydrolyzed collagen (collagen hydrolysate) and gelatin. Gelatin is created when collagen is cooked.
These have already broken the large protein down into smaller peptides, which are more easily absorbed in the body.
There aren’t many studies on collagen supplements, but those that exist show promise for benefits in the following areas:
- Muscle mass. A 2019 study in recreationally active men showed that a combination of collagen peptide supplements and strength training increased muscle mass and strength more than a placebo (10Trusted Source).
- Arthritis. A 2017 animal study looked at the effects of giving collagen supplements to mice with post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). The results indicated that supplementation may play a protective role in the disease’s development and progression (11Trusted Source).
- Skin elasticity. Women who took a supplement showed improvements in skin appearance and elasticity in a 2019 study. Collagen is also used in topical treatments to improve the appearance of skin by minimizing lines and wrinkles (12Trusted Source, 13Trusted Source).
Some alternative medicine practitioners also advocate using collagen supplements to treat leaky gut syndrome.
