Collagen!

I'll be the first to admit that I'm very critical of most supplements. That's because most of your results will come through consistent effort and good habits. Not to mention that supplement companies are known for writing better stories than the Bild newspaper. But every now and then a supplement comes along and proves that it might be worth the investment.

The collagen supplement
Collagen
Collagen is on the list of actually effective dietary supplements.

Research suggests that taking collagen orally or topically can improve skin moisture, elasticity, and hydration and reduce wrinkles. However, the biggest benefit may be that collagen relieves pain and strengthens your tendons and ligaments. One study found that using collagen type 2 for four months significantly improved joint function in people with joint pain. And another study suggests that collagen supplements may relieve knee pain. But collagen isn't magic. The studies found that it took about 12 to 24 weeks for the effects to occur. If you want to try collagen, research recommends using about 5 to 10 grams of type II collagen (check the label; the type of collagen can affect how your body absorbs the protein).
