What is Collagen?
Did you know that aside from water, collagen is the most plentiful substance in our bodies and is the building block for skin, tendons, and bones?
Collagen is the body’s primary protein making up for 25-30% of the protein in the human body and 80% of the skin tissue. Collagen is a large part of your skin, muscles, bones, blood vessels digestive system, tendons and pretty much every other organ in the body.
Skin is the largest organ and is mainly kept together with the protein called collagen. It keeps the skin strong and elastic and along with replacing the dead skin cells it keeps one looking young.
As a result of the ageing process the bodies own natural collagen production declines as we age, precisely as any other organ in the body.
Clinical studies have been made on the declination of collagen production aligned with ageing and the studies confirm that a healthy human body will approximately lose 1% collagen per year. From the age of 25 the side effect of ageing will often begin to show visible signs and continue throughout the human life, especially after menopause.
