The Ultimate Guide to Recommending Collagen Supplements

June 21, 2023 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. CDT

Collagen is a crucial element of connective tissues, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and skin. Over time, lifestyle factors and age can cause wrinkles and soft tissue/joint discomfort. Collagen promotes connective tissue biosynthesis and supports the body’s self-repair of cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. For those with a creak in their step, collagen and hyaluronic acid supports joint lubrication, joint cushioning, and normal connective tissue inflammatory response. And we can’t forget that collagen also supports rejuvenation of healthy hair, skin, and nails.

Collagen is a huge multibillion-dollar market in the United States, and it is growing. This significant collagen demand has led to hundreds of collagen products flooding the market, but not all are alike. It is not all about high dose of collagen peptides. Short-chain versus long-chain peptides and molecular weight are a couple things to consider as well as excess oxalate production from high dose products.

Join Jeff Robins, RPh and Claire Kacena, DC as they discuss the following during the webinar:

  • Skin and connective tissue overview
  • Factors causing reduced elasticity in cartilage, tendons, ligaments and skin
  • Clinical studies outlining joint health
  • Nutrients and collagen peptides needed to promote connective tissue biosynthesis and support the repair of cartilage, tendons, and ligaments
