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 and the skin loses its firmness. It is then worth considering collagen supplementation.

Taking fish collagen in a minimum 2,500 mg serving for 3 months affects the appearance of your hairskin and nailsand. Collagen is also an ally of your jointsbones and muscles  - to keep you fit and active for as long as possible.
