To fight the loose or wrinkled skin that comes with getting older, so many of us try to ward it off with an abundance of creams and serums. The truth is, there’s really no guarantee they’ll do much and honestly, it gets expensive.
Okay, so it’s doubtful that anyone can attribute their luscious locks, radiant skin, or strong muscles to collagen and collagen alone, but it’s worth knowing that collagen can help you in all those capacities.
No matter how hectic your morning—overslept, waited extra-long for the shower at the gym, kids dawdled over breakfast—there’s always time for coffee.
Starting the day with foods that help you look your best is a great way to get going in the morning. You know collagen is the ultimate beauty booster—everywhere you go, people are blending it into smoothies, pouring it into coffee, and adding it to muffins.

There are plenty of magical ingredients out there claiming to give you more youthful skin, stronger hair and nails, improved gut health, and more—but there’s one that’s been scientifically proven to deliver on all of the above: Collagen.
