What Is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that reverses aging, builds more muscle, and improves your skin.
Collagen gets its name from a Greek word COLA that means "glue," which makes sense, since it is basically what holds the human body together. You can find collagen in the skin, joints, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and even in the bones and muscles.
Collagen is a long-chain amino acid and the most abundant protein in the body. It is composed of the individual amino acids Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine and in nature is found exclusively in animal tissue, especially bones and connective tissue.
It is what is responsible for giving skin elasticity, hair its strength, and connective tissue its ability to hold everything in place. In fact, the collagen protein makes up 30% of the total protein in the body, and 70% of the protein in the skin!
