COLLAGEN — What Is It & What Is Collagen Good For? | Doctor ER



A real doctor explains what collagen is. What are the benefits of collagen? Why do people take collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Collagen provides structure to your skin, makes your hair and nails grow, muscles strong, helps your gut and immune system stay healthy, and even helps your blood clot for starters. There are at least 16 different types of collagen at work in your body. But many things in our life can damage your body’s natural collagen production. Bad habits like too much sugar intake, too much sun exposure, smoking, and various autoimmune diseases can have a similar effect. In recent years collagen has been growing in popularity as a popular ingredient. You see it on social media, in shampoos, powders, creams, and supplements. But here’s the question: should you be adding in and taking collagen supplements? Will collagen help your skin from sagging? Will it make your muscles stronger? Today I am discussing the benefits of collagen, what is collagen made of, and other questions you may have about collagen supplements.

Quick Fact: You should be consuming 30 grams or 2 servings of collagen protein a day.
