Why is it worth supplementing with collagen?

.

It's worth supplementing collagen because around 25 years of age the body's natural collagen production begins to declineand. The first wrinkles appear and the skin loses its firmness. This is the moment to replenish collagen (in a tasty way - as you can see in the recipe!)

Taking fish collagen in portions of at least 2,500 mg for 3 months will affect the appearance of your hair, skin and nailsand. Collagen also supports the musculoskeletal system to keep your joints, bones and musclesand in good shape for as long as possible.
