Collagen – the buzz word we are sure you’ve heard of, but do you really know what it is? This article breaks down the facts, to provide you with a simple overview of Collagen, it’s benefits and why you should include it in your daily health routine. Let’s get into it.
What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in your body. It plays an essential role in supporting your body’s structure from your blood vessels and bones through to your muscles, skin, and ligaments. Collagen is the framework or glue holding all these things together. (1)
As we age, our bodies produce less and lower quality collagen. The concerning part is this begins to occur from your 20’s, crazy right!? As we produce less collagen, we may notice changes to our skin – its structure and hydration, and to the way our joints function. (2, 3)
FUN FACT – there are 28 different types of collagen, with type I, II and III being the most common. Here at Modere we use type II which can be found in our Liquid BioCell and SHAPE ranges.
What are the benefits of collagen?
Here is a breakdown of the main benefits associated with Collagen supplementation:
