Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It helps give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons in our body. Thanks to collagen, we’re able to move, bend and stretch. Collagen also gives shine to our hair, makes our skin look healthy and young and adds strength to our nails.
Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids: glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine, all of which help our body’s connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, as well as gut health stay as healthy as possible.
Collagen is the most important protein in so-called connective tissue which holds our body and organs together. It gives strength to various structures of the body, In our digestive system (stomach and guts) and other organs it fulfills an important role in providing strength and resilience. In the skin, it provides strength and elasticity to the deeper layers, keeping the skin itself healthy. This protein called collagen is the cement that keeps everything together.
With age, the body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down. And as a result; the structural integrity of the skin declines, wrinkles form, and joint cartilage weakens.
