If you’ve not been lying under a rock, you’ll know that collagen is the anti-ageing holy grail. Collagen keeps skin resilient and joints working smoothly and provides the structure in the tissue that connects our organs—but past the ripe old age of 30, everyone’s collagen production declines. If you lose the collagen structure in your bones, that’s osteoporosis. According to Prevention, lose the collagen in skin, you get wrinkles.
In the past, or diet included foods that may have helped stem this decline, such as homemade broth or stock. When you boil a whole chicken or simmer beef bones, the jellylike substance that rises to the top is—you guessed it—collagen. It’s even been suggested that our society’s current predilection for boneless, skinless chicken breasts could be part of the reason we need these supplements in the first place—we’ve effectively created a collagen deficit in our diets.
If supplements are the solution, we don’t yet know their exact biological action. Researchers who have studied them theorize that it’s the mincing of collagen into very particular small chains of amino acids and peptides that holds the secret to youthful skin. When the fragments are the right size, they are absorbed into the bloodstream, the researchers assert and trigger the production of collagen in the skin’s matrix. This mincing is also why collagen-supplement researchers argue that all the bone broth in the world won’t help—the enzymes the lab uses to get collagen to the target size aren’t naturally present in the body.
