If you are taking a collagen supplement in order to reduce arthritis joint pain and inflammation, I have disappointing news for you. ?
Numerous scientific studies have been unable to prove that collagen benefits arthritis sufferers.
However, collagen has so many wonderful benefits, that I still felt compelled to share my research with you, especially since collagen production decreases after age 40!
One of those benefits is that collagen supports the healing of leaky gut, which more often than not is an underlying cause for your arthritis as well as other autoimmune diseases.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our bodies.
It is practically “the glue” that holds everything together, as it is a major component in our connective tissues, bones, muscles, skin, and tendons.
As collagen decreases with age, our skin loses its elasticity causing wrinkles, and we may get joint pain due to weakened or decreased cartilage.
What are the Benefits of Collagen?
The most benefits from collagen can be derived from consuming it, rather than applying it topically (ie skin cream). When you do supplement with collagen, it is important to combine it with vitamin C, in order to increase your body’s ability to absorb and fully utilize the collagen.

#6: Improve Skin Elasticity

What Decreases Collagen Production?
As I mentioned above, collagen production naturally decreases with age, but other lifestyle factors can also cause a decrease.
Not only is it essential to have many different sources to get the highest quality supplement, but it is also vital to know what those sources are. Look for things like “grass fed” bovine collagen or “cage-free” egg collagen, to know how good the source that the collagen comes from is. ~ DR. CHAD LARSON
