Almost everyone has heard of collagen, and is familiar with its importance for maintaining beautiful and healthy skin. However, fewer people know exactly what collagen is and how it works; moreover, the simple fact that something contains collagen does not necessarily mean that it makes a large contribution to bodily health and beauty. In this handy guide, Dr. Marita Schauch sorts out the truths and falsehoods in claims made about collagen, and outlines its importance not only for skin and hair, but as an essential health factor in many parts of the body. She also addresses ways to move beyond mere topical, external uses of collagen and focus instead on enhancing the body's natural ability to produce more collagen internally.
