WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is a protein that is found almost everywhere in our bodies: skin, tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage, blood vessels, teeth and more. This protein makes up 80 percent of the skin, and its fibres give skin its firmness and strength. Collagen naturally breaks down in our bodies over time but taking a collagen supplement can help to improve collagen levels.
Collagen is composed of a series of amino acids, including glutamine, arginine, proline and glycine. Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins and are essential to synthesizing hormones and moving chemical messages through the body.
Amino acids bind together to form procollagen, which then groups together to form long collagen chains. These chains then bind closely together to form a dense layer of cells and act as the foundation of body materials i.e. in your skin, hair, gut and anywhere else.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN?
Collagen is the major component of connective tissue, meaning that taking collagen supplements can help your body in a variety of ways. It can keep your skin more elastic and supple, make your nails and hair stronger, help your muscles to recover quicker, help your bones to be more resilient, and can improve your overall digestive health.
