Does collagen help you lose weight?

Does collagen help you lose weight? While you’ve probably seen skincare and haircare products containing collagen on the shelves, you might not have thought about collagen’s other potential benefits. While collagen won’t magically melt body fat, it can help in several ways to support healthy weight loss and post-workout recovery. 

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, responsible for creating structure within our bones, cartilage, tendons, connective tissue, muscles and skin. You could say our bodies are built on collagen. It has been hailed as an anti-aging superstar, with exogenous collagen (synthetic collagen from outside the body) used in many skincare products. Natural endogenous collagen (collagen synthesized within the body) levels decline as we get older, leading to a decrease in skin elasticity, joint health and the speed of wound healing.
