Collagen is one of the most important proteins in our body. It is found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and joints. It is responsible for the elasticity and softness of the skin. Collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin, which is why collagen needs to be taken orally – through food or in the form of a dietary supplement. Collagen production in the body decreases as we age, causing wrinkles to form, the skin to lose elasticity, and joints to become painful. Vitamin C helps in the formation of collagen and thus stimulates the regeneration and elasticity of the skin, reduces the formation of wrinkles and other signs of premature aging.
Collagen can also reduce cellulite and stretch marks. When the skin loses its elasticity due to the reduction of collagen, it can result in visible cellulite. As the skin becomes thinner, cellulite becomes more noticeable (1).
Have you ever felt pain in your legs or stiffness? This is another indicator of collagen deficiency. Your ligaments and joints move with difficulty, resulting in pain and stiffness (2,3).
The soft, gel-like structure of collagen allows us to move without pain. It helps the joints to move more easily, reduces joint pain associated with aging and can even reduce the risk of joint deterioration (4,5).
STRENGTHENING HAIR, NAILS AND TEETH
Collagen is the main protein needed to build nails, hair and teeth. By adding collagen to your diet you can strengthen your nails and possibly even stop hair loss.
Research has suggested an association between follicle recovery and the extracellular matrix (collagen), suggesting that collagen could also be used to treat hair loss and other skin health-related diseases (6).
The amino acids collagen help reduce the damage your liver suffers in the process of absorbing foreign substances, toxins and alcohol. Research has shown that glycine, which is found in collagen, has a role in reducing the damage caused to the liver due to alcohol consumption (7).
Collagen substances affect the proper functioning of digestion and can help prevent intestinal damage and intestinal permeability disorders. Research has shown that in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, collagen stores are reduced. For this reason, by adding collagen to the diet, its amino acids can facilitate the regeneration of the intestinal wall and help with many bowel damage (8).
CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM PROTECTION
Collagen contains the amino acid proline which helps the walls of the artery to release fat into the bloodstream and reduces the accumulation of fat in the arteries. Proline is needed to repair tissue inside joints and arteries, and also helps regulate blood pressure. As part of the collagen found inside the joints, proline softens the effects of our body’s vibrations and helps us maintain cartilage health as we age (9).
