Why is Collagen so important?
Collagen is the main structural protein in the various connective tissues in our bodies. It consists of amino acids wound together to form a triple helix.
As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content.
Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your hair, nails and bones.
There are many different types of collagen – 16 to be exact.
However, the most commonly researched types of collagen include Types I, II and III. T
Type I and III collagen are the most prevalent within our bodies and provide the foundations for strong hair, skin, nails and bones.
Type II collagen supports joint and cartilage health. Without collagen, our bodies would fall apart. While our body produces collagen naturally, by the time we reach our mid 20’s production begins to slow down.
By the time we are in our 30’s we stop producing it altogether and we’re left to rely solely on our diet to keep our collagen levels up.
