Collagen: the Beauty Protein
In the body, collagen is the primary ‘structural protein’, however, due to its importance to skin, we also refer to it as the ‘beauty protein’. In healthy skin, collagen is abundant. It is responsible for giving your skin structure, firmness, and elasticity.
Collagen Decline and Damage
Collagen production starts declining in your 20’s. Age-related decline in collagen production is met with yet another problem. Collagen is constantly under attack by free radicals which damage and weaken the collagen matrix. The decline in collagen production along with the increase in collagen damage results in significant changes in the skin: fine lines, furrows, roughness, and wrinkles. When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the bloodstream and reach the dermis where they stimulate the production of collagen.
