Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in humans and animals. It’s a structural component of skin, nails, bones, cartilage, and other connective tissues. Collagen also helps with cell turnover and organ protection. As we age our bodies produce less collagen, which can lead to a decline in skin integrity, less efficient soft tissue healing, as well as weakened joint cartilage.
Collagen supplements provide an external source of collagen peptides, that are believed to potentially help boost the body’s ability to produce more collagen. There are serval types of collagen: Types I, II and III are the most common varieties found in supplements. Types I and III give structure to skin, bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and organs, while type II plays a more significant role in cartilage and joint health. These supplemental versions are derived from animal sources like chicken, cow and pig; marine sources are also available. Vitamin C also plays a role in collagen production and is often included in collagen powder
