More than 25% of the body's protein is made up of collagen. It is the protein that strengthens bones, teeth, nails and hair. The network of connective tissues in your body make up the structure of your skeleton, muscles, tendons, and cartilage. These structures function to protect your internal organs and softer tissues.
In addition to being part of the network that maintains strong bones, collagen is also crucial for skin health. Elastin fibers trap moisture and keep the skin firm and youthful. Starting at age 21, our collagen production begins to naturally decline by about 1% per year. Women experiencing menopause are particularly susceptible to collagen deficiency , however, it is still possible to achieve beautiful skin and stimulate the production of collagen through providing the body with the proper nutrients and building blocks.
