What Is Collagen and What Does It Do In Your Body?

By Lion's

If you’re like most people, you probably think of collagen as something that’s good for your skin. And while it’s true that this protein plays a vital role in keeping your skin looking young and elastic, it actually does much more than that.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, and it’s found in muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments. It gives these tissues their strength and structure. So without collagen, we would literally be a pile of mush!

Here’s a closer look at what collagen is and what does it do in your body:

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in animals, making up 90% of our body’s collagen. There are 28 types with type I accounting for almost all remaining quantities!

Collagens triple helix structure makes it strong enough to hold together tissues like skin or bones without breaking apart easily under pressure while also being flexible so they can stretch somewhat when needed- which helps give you those amazing muscles that everyone loves talking about ad nauseam sometimes without even realising what keeps them going each day.

One important thing we should mention here: not only does this incredible material provide strength where necessary but its degree varies depending on location–a lot more than other substances do.

Collagen is Used in a Variety of Ways

Your body naturally produces collagen, and you can consume it through dietary sources such as chicken skin. There are also supplements that offer a quick way to get the nutrients your cells need without eating meat or fish every day!

You’ll find these products in powder form (to add water), capsules where they’re taken once per day with food – either before bedtime for better sleep patterns OR during meals if weight loss isn’t on mind yet-, plus liquids like tea bags which provide an all-day intake of vitamins too hot? Try mixing orange juice into iced coffee instead.

As we age, the production and distribution of collagen naturally decline. Additionally it becomes fragmented with time which leads to signs that are associated ageing such as wrinkles or dry skin; this process also affects our bones because their integrity decreases at a rate speeds faster than what is considered safe by health professionals.

Although these changes occur no matter how old you get – some factors make them worse like stress caused through work/school pressure along side poor diet choices (too much sugar).

How to Prevent Collagen Loss?

By following a healthy lifestyle, you can increase your chances of having skin with youthful health and beauty.

This includes avoiding cigarette smoking or excessive alcohol consumption as well staying on track by eating plenty fruits vegetables among other nutritious foods that are good for the body’s collagen production!
