So, Does Collagen Work?
Preliminary research suggests this unique protein may aid arthritis and even help reduce wrinkles. Some of this research involves humans. That said, there's much that's not understood. Many studies are conducted /supported by supplement companies. While there are 29 different types of collagen, it seems that different types (mostly type I, type II, and type II) have different effects. Type II may help arthritis while types I and III may help the skin.
