What is collagen and why do we need it?
Most of us know collagen plays a major role in promoting our health and beauty but we at Optima feel this skin superstar deserves a little more airtime. Collagen is a VIP (very important protein) – a major cellular building block, providing structure to our skin, bones, joints and organs. It’s just unfortunate that as we age, we start to have less of it in our skin, leading to the visible signs of ageing. Luckily, we can boost our body’s own production with the right collagen supplement. Stay with us to discover how collagen works, why it’s essential to looking our best, and how to get more of it into our lives.
