What is Collagen?
Collagen is what holds us together! It’s found in skin, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, muscles, bone tissue, blood vessels, inter-vertebral discs, gastrointestinal tract, and even in the cornea of the eye. Furthermore, Collagen makes up about 75% of the dry weight of skin and provides volume that keeps your skin looking plump and keeps lines at bay. Collagen is also rich in in the amino acids, proline and glycine. You need these amino acids maintain and repair your tendons, bones, and joints.
Why take Collagen?
As we age, the amount of collagen in our body decreases. By age 25, collagen levels decrease at a rate of 1.5% a year. By age 40, collagen depletes faster than it is produced! And by age 60, over half of the body’s collagen has been depleted.
Injecting collagen has fallen out of favour in many medical skin care practices. It simply does not last as long as other fillers and tends to prompt allergic reactions. Recent clinical studies prove that ingesting collagen can positively impact the appearance of skin. Benefits range from reducing wrinkles, healing your gut, building strong bones, helping joint pain and so much more. Full a full list of benefits please click on the Additional Info tab.
