Why do we need collagen?
Collagen is the glue that holds everything together in your body. The word collagen was inspired by the Greek word Kolla, which means glue.
Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix found in the body's various connective tissues. Collagen consists of amino acids bound together to form a triple helix of elongated fibril known as a collagen helix. It is mostly found in connective tissue such as cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, joints, and skin. It helps build muscle mass, which in turn increases metabolism and helps you maintain a healthy weight.

Lower collagen production can lead to a weakening of arterial walls. This leaves the door open for other substances to create plaque build-up along artery walls and the development of atherosclerosis. An increase in collagen supplements may also increase (HDL) the "good cholesterol" by over 5%.
Most women start losing up to 1% of collagen production per year starting in their late 30's. When one hits menopause, their collagen production decreases dramatically by up to 30% because of the loss of estrogen. As you lose estrogen, you also lose collagen. Love your body by feeding it collagen, and it will love you back by looking and feeling younger.
But remember: This needs to be a daily regimen! You are losing collagen every day, which means you need to replace it every day.
