"Collagen's anti-inflammatory powers come from the role that it plays in our gut health.* A healthy gut can reduce inflammation throughout the whole body. Poor gut health, on the other hand, leads to stomach lining permeability, where particles can leak into the rest of the body, which then triggers inflammation in the body," naturopathic doctor Kellyann Petrucci, M.S., N.D., explains.

"Collagen has been shown to support the gut's lining and has key amino acids for gut health.* It contains glycine, an amino acid with proven anti-inflammatory and immune system-supporting effects."
