Do collagen supplements support nervous system health?

A question we have recently been asked by one of our valued customers, is whether collagen supplementation can support nerve health?

It is clear that collagen is a crucial protein found throughout the body, including the nervous system. The exact mechanisms by which collagen supplements may support the nervous system are not clear and the potential benefits of this is still being researched.


Collagen Connections

Collagen is a structural protein within the body and maintaining optimal collagen levels supports a range of body functions. The collagen that exists within our bodies plays a critical role in supporting neural maturation and circuit formation during the development of the Central Nervous System. Collagen within the CNS acts in a very nuanced way to support complex cell communication.

However, it is not clear whether collagen supplements plays a role in this. It stands to reason that there are links between supporting optimal collagen levels within the body by supporting nerve health but the exact interplay of collagen supplementation and the CNS is still unclear. The brain and the nervous system is such a complex system, albeit it is certainly the case that providing the body with optimal nutrition and looking after our well-being is beneficial to our nervous system health.


Collagen Research Focus

While collagen supplements shows promise for supporting nervous system health, more research is needed to fully understand its specific effects and mechanisms of action in this context. Additionally, individual responses to collagen supplements may vary, so it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions or concerns.
