Ever notice how many vitamins you take a day? If you do not take any, this article will enlighten you as to the most important one to take and why. If you do take vitamins, do you know exactly what each of them are doing for you?

Okay, so here is the skinny as to why a collagen tablet is the most essential supplement you can put in your body.

First of all, collagen is the body’s most abundant protein. It is the “glue” that literally holds our connective tissue together. If you have ever wondered exactly what makes us appear to age as we get older, well this is it. Around age 25 our body’s collagen production decreases at a rate of 1 1/2% per year. With the decline in this essential protein, our skin begins to wrinkle and start to sag. Cellulite appears and our joints and cartilage are affected and become achy and painful.

Are you beginning to notice any of this happening to your body? If you are over 25, then you probably have. If you are curious as to if you can stop this from happening, well I am sorry to say that it will not. Your body will continue to decline in collagen production and the results are not pleasant.

The good news is that with the replenishment of collagen, the effects of aging skin and joints can be reversed. This is pretty spectacular as there is only one type of collagen that targets these 2 areas of the body’s health, it is called type 2 collagen.

By supplementing with collagen tablets you can substantially reduce the amount of joint pain you have and see a visible difference in the texture and smoothness of your skin overall. We need collagen for the transportation of toxins from the cells to the lymphatic system in order to dispose of them efficiently. With decreased collagen production our body wraps the toxins in an “envelope” of fat to protect our organs. This is called cellulite. So replenishing our collagen directly benefits our the removal of cellulite from our body.

Using a moisturizer or facial cream only target the first 2 layers of skin. The same is true of collagen injections, not to mention that they are expensive, painful and temporary. When using collagen tablets daily you are targeting all 7 layers of skin internally. This is a key factor in getting the results you desire, especially if you suffer from cellulite, wrinkles, or severe joint pain.

If you already take vitamins daily, then the addition of collagen tablets to your daily routine will be a piece of cake to swallow, no pun intended.
