Collagen is a protein naturally found in the human body, especially in the skin, joints, and bones. Supplementing with collagen can offer numerous benefits:

  • Skin Health: Helps maintain skin elasticity and hydration, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Joints and Bones: Improves joint mobility and reduces pain, especially in cases of joint issues. Supports bone strength and flexibility.
  • Digestive System: Supports gut health and contributes to better digestion.


Raspberries are rich in antioxidants, especially vitamin C, which offer numerous health benefits:

  • Cell Protection: Antioxidants help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, slowing down the aging process.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Reduce inflammation in the body, contributing to overall health and preventing chronic diseases.
  • Immune System Support: High vitamin C content strengthens the immune system, helping prevent infections and illnesses.
