What is Collagen?
Collagen is a natural insoluble, fibrous and hard protein found in our bodies that acts as a supporting structure for cells in the body. It exists as strong and flexible molecules that are packed together forming long, thin fibrils. This protein regimen makes up to 80 percent of our skin dermis. It makes your complexion taut, plump, youthful, and sexy. However, over time, the natural synthesis of collagen in our bodies significantly reduces. This may inevitably lead to the appearance of wrinkles. The skin becomes much less smooth and supple.
So, what to do?
To get back our youthful, sexy look, we can increase the collagen in our bodies by using a formula rich in collagen active ingredients. We will get to that in a few. The good thing is that collagen is resorbable. That means that it can be harvested from the body, broken down, processed and then reabsorbed into the body. For that reason, it has become famous in the cosmetic industry for skin treatment.
HOW COLLAGEN CAN WORK FOR YOU?
Many don’t know this but collagen is one of the most dominant proteins in our body making up a huge part of the skin, hair, and nails. Collagen is responsible for giving the skin elasticity, tenacity to your hair follicles and supportive ability to the connective tissues. To be precise, it makes up 30% of the total body protein and 70-80 % of the total protein in the skin.
However, these numbers go down the older you get. Then you notice those wrinkles, sagging lines and in some extreme cases, cellulite. You can see where we are going with this, don’t you? You guessed it, you need to crank up the level of collagen in your body as your youth fades away. Don't get discouraged...You CAN actually do this!
