Collagen is a type of protein in our body that provides support and strength to skin, muscles, bones and connective tissues. Our body produces collagen naturally, but it slows down as we get older. We need to eat foods high in collagen, to make up for this decline. Collagen supplements with added sugars may cause blood sugar spikes.
