Collagen Protein Is a Waste of Money, Science Says

Written by:
Collagen Protein Is a Waste of Money, Science Says

If you want to know what collagen protein is, why people take it, and whether or not it can benefit your body, you want to listen to this podcast.

In the past few years, collagen protein has become a glittering moneymaker.

According to some, it’s the new fish oil, what with its long list of benefits for nearly every major part of your health and physiology.

The most popular claims include . . .

  • Reducing joint pain and improving joint health
  • Improving the health and appearance of your skin and nails
  • Increasing muscle growth and recovery

And if none of that tickles your processors, then maybe you’d be interested in boosting immunity, making your hair prettier, and improving your digestion?

On the other hand, collagen protein detractors say that the benefits are misrepresented, overblown, or flat out false. You know, like most supplements.

Who’s right? Well, the short answer is this:

Collagen protein is basically garbage—literally and figuratively.

While some forms of collagen can help your joints, most, are nothing more than low-quality but highly profitable fodder for supplement shysters to separate people from more of their cash.

And in this podcast , you’re going to learn why.
