Every girl has and should have this conversation with her gynaecologist at one point in her 20s. Should I start taking collagen supplements or not? The answer is yes. In our mid-to-late 20s, the body’s production of collagen slows down. It decreases faster after 30 and then continues dropping 2% yearly. When taking collagen supplements, you are lowering the rate at which it decreases.

You might ask, “Why should I be taking collagen?” Well, for one, it provides the structure to your skin and bones, which means the health of your skin and bones depend on your body’s collagen production. Collagen also relieves joint pains which help with your recovery after workouts. Speaking of workouts, collagen can even increase your muscle mass which is what we’re all killing ourselves at the gym for. Another advantage is it also keeps your heart healthy. If these reasons aren’t making you run to the nearest supplier for some collagen supplements, then at least have some bone broth for dinner which is loaded with collagen.
