It's no surprise that Hollywood A-Lister Jennifer Aniston appeared in a glossy ad campaign last month working-out in the Hollywood hills and promoting a collagen food supplement and looking - well - as good as ever.

But the actress and Oscar winner, who is often pictured with her trusty yoga mat, remains true to herself on the face of it, because the youth elixir in question starts off at €20 and is available to everyone - with no needles at all.

At 52, the Friends star either has a really good surgeon, very good genes or - as she would tell us - a great lifestyle (and I'm sure her own personal chef. Who wouldn't eat well if you had a menu everyday?)

She says: "I've always been an advocate for finding wellness from the inside out."

The actress follows a strict 16:8 diet which involves restricting food consumption to a set time of eight hours a day and refraining from eating for the other 16 hours.

She drinks a celery juice every morning and then meditates, followed by an arduous workout routine.

Aniston has been using Vital Proteins since 2016 but was recently appointed Chief Creative Officer and believes that 'the magic is in you' and that "collagen supports your body from the inside out and gives you the support you need to take on the world".

Education expert Olivia Palaez of Vital Proteins - who is a 'nutrition junkie' - insists whole-heartedly that food is medicine and told Magazine+: "Collagen is the body's most abundant protein and helps to support hair, skin, nail, bone and joint health. It acts as the glue that holds everything together in terms of the body's structural framework.

"As we grow older, however, the body's natural collagen production begins to decline. It is actually estimated that our endogenous (the body's own) production of collagen declines at a rate of 1pc per year and may begin as early as young adulthood. Additionally, dietary preferences and patterns have changed over the decades, with most people choosing foods that are not collagen rich.

"These two factors can contribute to collagen deficiency, which may lead to various signs of aging, like dull, lacklustre skin and decreased joint flexibility and mobility.

"This is why we recommend adding collagen supplements to a balanced diet. Vital Proteins® offers a wide range of high-quality collagen products that can be seamlessly added to your daily routine to help support the body from within.

"Collagen works in two ways: It acts as a messenger protein and it supplies the body with amino acids.

"Collagen peptides may act as messengers to the cells and trigger the synthesis and reorganisation of new collagen fibres, therefore supporting skin, nails, bone and joint tissue structures. Over 90pc of the collagen peptides appear in our bloodstream within a few hours after consumption. This rapid absorption ensures an effective delivery of the essential peptides and amino acids in the body.

"It's a versatile product that's a must-try for anyone who's new to the world of ingestible collagen. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides is not only paleo-friendly, gluten-free and dairy-free, but it also boasts a clean label with no added flavours, colours, preservatives or fillers.

"As for how much collagen you should be taking, we recommend consuming 10-20g of collagen per day."
