Collagen is a key building block of connective tissue and one of the most abundant proteins in the body.
It provides structure to tissues such as hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments, bone, and cartilage.
The use of collagen and collagen supplements may reduce exercise-related joint pain.
For athletes that participate in high-impact sports or put stress on these types of tissue (tendons, ligaments, joints) may benefit from collagen supplementation.
Supplementing with collagen has been shown to increase collagen synthesis and may strengthen and repair connective tissue.
Why do you need to have vitamin C with collagen?
Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis.
Collagen is the building block and vitamin C is the mortar. Without adequate vitamin C, the body cannot form collagen.
