Does Collagen Work? (Top Collagen Benefits For Skin) w/ Dr. Tony Youn
Listen now
If you’re on the fence about collagen (as well as how to build more of it), I’m excited to share that research now demonstrates the many collagen benefits that exist. Collagen for skin health is crucial, along with the many ways it supports your gut and joint health too! I talked about collagen benefits as well as collagen peptides + collagen protein supplements, but I’ve never really shared about other factors to build collagen. And it’s that piece about building collagen that’s such a big deal because we’re each faced with a collagen problem which is to some degree unavoidable as well as exposure-driven… First, as you age, you will experience an accelerated loss of collagen in the skin and joints. Second, prolonged exposure to medications like topical steroids also rapidly breaks down collagen in the skin. This is why it’s so important to care about collagen benefits and how to build collagen now! My guest has been on the show before and has a ton of experience in this area. His NEW book Younger For Life comes out soon to show you how to more naturally deal with aging and the loss of your body’s collagen.

Diet strategies + collagen protein tips to boost your body stores of collagen Quotes “Sugar can bond to the collagen of your skin and create AGEs. Basically, these are advanced glycation end products where it causes that collagen that normally is in nice, kind of tight fibers to become kinked and to become misshapen. And that can cause premature aging.” [13:19] “The way I look at vitamin C as far as a topical form is that it may not necessarily impact the collagen production so much in that way as I think it's more for antioxidants and fighting free radicals, which is one of the main sources of aging of our skin, but ingesting enough vitamin C is definitely important for your collagen production.” [18:24] Links Find Dr. Youn: online | Instagram | Tiktok | Youtube Get Dr. Youn’s NEW BOOK – Younger For Life → HERE Try these collagen-boosting products: Quell Protein Powders | PaleoValley meat sticks | Quell C+ Boost Powder Dry Farm Wines – Get an extra bottle for a penny HERE with your first order!
