Collagen is a component of joint cartilage that, when used as a supplement, can ease the pain, reduce inflammation and improve joint mobility(4) during and after your workouts.

L-Proline – This is a non-essential amino acid that’s a component of collagen and therefore plays an important role in joint health and function.(5)
