WHAT IS COLLAGEN?

The Importance Of Having Good Supply Of Skin Collagen

Collagen is the largest and most abundant protein in your body, and is a key building block for everything from the connective tissues of your vital organs, joints, ligaments and tendons, to your hair, nails and the dermis layer of your skin. 

Collagen functions much like the frame of a house: it provides support for everything, on the inside and outside. Without the frame, your house gets cracks and falls down.

Your dermis layer is more than 70% collagen.  This collagen is essential for healthy, beautiful skin.

THE DECLINE OF SKIN COLLAGEN AS WE AGE

You are born with an abundant supply of collagen.  As a baby, your skin is plump, firm, smooth and rosy in color – thanks to all of that collagen in your dermis. 

Unfortunately, your body stops producing collagen in your mid to late 20’s. 
Then, around age 30, your collagen begins a long, unyielding decline – right around the time those first fine lines and wrinkles appear on your face. 

After age 30, your collagen level drops 1%-2% every year. 

By age 40, you have lost 10%-20% of your collagen.  By 50, you are down 20%-40%. By the time you hit 60 – well, you get the picture. And it isn’t pretty.

YOU KNOW YOUR SKIN NEEDS COLLAGEN. WHICH TYPE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?  

Which Type of Collagen Is Right For You? | RenewAlliance
There are 28 types of collagen. The collagen in the dermis layer of your skin is 80% Type I and 10% Type III.  

Type I is the most common collagen and also the strongest – it is stronger than steel by weight – and provides the primary support for your skin (and joints).

Type II is less common and is a main component of cartilage. It is primarily for joint health rather than skin health. 

Type III is the second most common and is found alongside Type I in your dermis layer, blood vessels and internal organs. This so-called “baby collagen” is abundant in children, and is responsible for the fullness and elasticity so admired in their plump skin. Type III loses its elastic properties as you enter puberty and eventually becomes the stiffer, more robust Type I collagen.

Type I & Type III Collagen can be sourced from fish, cow or pig.

Type II Collagen is sourced from chicken.

Approximately 30% of the protein in our bodies is made up of collagen, which supports the structure of our skin, makes our skin strong and elastic, and keeps aging at bay. From pills and powders to tablets and liquid, collagen supplements come in many forms. 

Many companies in North America are beginning to ride the profitable wave of collagen popularity and making bold claims about the efficacy of their products. As a result, there are many collagen  brands to choose from, but not all collagen beauty supplements are created equal. Here are 7 tips for buying the right collagen beauty supplement.
