There are countless anti-aging, beautifying, and youth enhancing products on the market that will cause you to fork over hundreds and hundreds of dollars in the pursuit of beauty. Whether it is creams you rub on your face, ointments you localize and apply to certain areas, or serums you lather yourself up with – the options and steps with beauty products seem endless.

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your body. It is one-third of your body’s protein composition. It is the foundation for bones, skin, muscles, and ligaments. It’s even found in your teeth.
