Collagen is very helpful to the body

Collagen is a natural component of the body which contributes to the support of healthy joints, connective tissue, skin, hair and blood vessel walls.

Collagen is also present in skin which helps maintain elasticity.

Collagen levels decrease with age due to diminished production or increased breakdown of collagen fibers. 

A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition noted "that people who regularly consumed beans, peas and lentils may have a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease".
