      Why is it worth supplementing with collagen?

      .

      At around 25 years of age the body's natural production of collagen begins to declineand. The first wrinkles appear, your skin loses firmness and sometimes you may experience joint pain or restriction. So it's worth considering collagen supplementation as early as possible.

      Drinking fish collagen in a serving of at least 2500 mg for 3 months positively affects the condition of your hairskin and nailsand. Collagen is also an ally of healthy jointsbones and musclesand - to keep you fit and active for as long as possible.
