Collagen is a complex protein made of three chains of amino acids - in fact, the protein that you have the most in your body - collagen makes up more than a third of your total protein. It consists, among other things, of "glycine", "proline" and "hydroxyproline" - all 3 amino acids that help your body produce new collagen.
WHY SHOULD I TAKE IT?
If you take collagen as a supplement, you support your own natural collagen production.
When the collagen is hydrolyzed, it means that the collagen is broken down into small chains which makes it easier for the body to absorb and therefore more efficient. These is also called collagen-peptides.
TYPE I,II or III ?
Type I is the most abundant in the body, not just in skin: You will find it in joints, bones, tendons, you name it.
Type II makes up a majority of the protein molecules in your cartilage, the connective tissue that protects your bones at the joints, in your spinal disks, and your eyes.
Type III is a less understood collagen but no less interesting. This type of collagen is often related to skin health and elasticity.
BOOST YOUR OWN COLLAGEN?
There are several things you can do to boost your own collagen production. Make sure your diet is rich on Vitamin A and C - they support collagen production and cell health.
Take a collagen supplement from the age of 30+ to support your own production. For optimal effect, combine your collagen supplement with a Vitamin C supplement as the two nutritions boost each other.
Limit your sugar intake and protect your skin from the sun - both are related to decreasing your collagen production and have a negative effect on your skin.
