Why is everyone drinking Collagen?

I recently went to lunch with a friend and watched her grab a powder from her purse and add it to her coffee: “I can’t even taste it” she said.
I know I had seen it on the internet, but what does drinking collagen powder actually do for you?
First off what is collagen? We all know it as the thing that we lose as we get older, right? Well, it’s the most abundant protein in our bodies, and also another name for it is gelatin. So just eat jello? Well supplements are a healthier way of doing that. I personally just drink a bone broth and mix it into my soups in the winter for the same effect.
Back to the powder, it’s basically like a supplement and you can even take it in pill form. The cool thing about drinking these collagen powders is that it affects your entire face and body not just one area. Not only will you get a glow, but this might even help with cellulite. It’s also great for your hair, skin and nails, and most importantly your joints.

Can collagen really make a difference? It sure does, and it’s totally worth a try, but nothing really beats a healthy diet. That said, there are some side effects such as heartburn or the sensation of feeling full.
