Collagen sources and their characteristics
What Is Collagen ?
Collagen is the most common protein found in the human body. It is the main component of connective tissue and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up 25-35 percent of total protein.
It is found in:
- hard tissue (ligaments, tendons)
- soft tissue (skin, intestine)
- structural tissue (bone, inter-vertebral disc)
The protein of collagen reduces as we age. Our bodies lose collagen at a rate of about 1.5 percent per year from the age of 25. This means when we reach 45, we would have lost 30 percent of collagen. Today, with the growth of anti-aging medicine, there is tremendous interest in collagen.
