Collagen has become a hot topic in the health and fitness world. People are adding collagen to their coffee or protein shakes. They are eating bone broth, and they are using creams with collagen on their skin. What are the health benefits of collagen that have made it so popular?

In this video, I discuss the role of collagen in our bodies, especially our skin and muscle. Then I discuss some of the reported health benefits of collagen, including easing joint pain, slowing the aging of skin, and muscle size and strength. Finally, I share thoughts on how you can consume more collagen in your diet.

Always talk to your doctor before trying this or any health treatment. If you are interested in collagen, try it and see how it works for you.
