Collagen is the main structural protein found in your skin that makes it smooth, hydrated, and youthful in appearance. Collagen not only benefits your skin; it also strengthens your joints, improves gut health, helps burn fat, and even improves sleep. Because most people don’t eat collagen-rich cartilage, marrow, and organs, you need to supplement with a grass-fed collagen protein powder. By adding it to your daily diet with these 13 collagen peptide recipes, you can easily garner supple skin and stronger joints in no time.

Specifically, what does collagen protein do for your skin?

  •    Improves skin elasticity[1]
  •    Diminishes skin cracking[2]
  •    Erases wrinkles[3]
  •    Increases fibroblast density, a marker of healthy, elastic skin[4]
  •    Increases skin moisture[5]
