What is the Deal with Collagen?

In the never-ending search for all things that will promote health, beauty and youthfulness, collagen is not to be dismissed as far as being very much present in the pool of public and scientific opinion. 

It has been hailed as the magic ingredient to cure aches and pains, as well as something of an ingestible fountain of youth.  Hmmmm . . .

In this podcast, Coach Chris and Coach Tonya sit down to discuss not only what public opinion has to say about the use of collagen, but science as well.


"A collagen supplement may act as a catalyst but it's not the fountain of youth." -Tonya Fines
