  • Improved athletic performance and recovery

Combining collagen supplementation with physical activity can bring more benefits than training alone. The specific amino acid composition of collagen aids in the development of muscle. Weight training is crucial for weight loss and building large muscles.

  • Improved bone health

Taking collagen daily can increase bone density and metabolism. It makes your bones denser, delaying the ageing process that makes them brittle and helps your body manufacture new bone.

  • Better joint health

Collagen may ease symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. People can take collagen supplements in an attempt to lessen this inflammation and improve symptoms of joint pain.

  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease

Collagen powder supplements, usually in the range of 5-20g measured as hydrolyzed collagen peptides, may reduce heart attack risk (which is higher in men than women).
