Several studies have found that taking hydrolysed collagen decreases joint pain after exercise and increases the density of cartilage, making joints more flexible. Collagen is the main protein the body recruits to help build everything from the connective tissue in skin to the tendons that attach muscles to bone.
Collagen helps form connective tissue and therefore “seals and heals” the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract. It also helps with the absorption of water within the intestines, keeping things moving more freely out of body.
Hydrolysed collagen improves skin elasticity, decreases skin cracking, helps smooth out wrinkles, increases fibroblast density, and increases skin moisture.
