Collagen Facts


The Importance Of Having A Good Supply Of Skin Collagen

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

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

The dermis layer is made up of more than 70% collagen. There are 28 types of collagen. The collagen in our dermis is 80% Type I and 10% Type III. Type I collagen are III are the key building foundation for youthful flawless skin.  

Decline in our skin collagen results in wrinkles, sagging skin, loss of elasticity, firmness and hydration.

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

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

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

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

Which Type of Collagen Is Right For You? | RenewAlliance

Collagen is derived from the scales of fish, bones and cartilages of chicken, cow and pig. However, the collagen molecule in its native state is too large for our body to absorb when ingested. So we won't be able to replenish our lost collagen simply by eating meat or drinking bone booth.

The good news is researchers in Japan invented a process to break down the collagen molecule, using high-pressure steam- a process called "hydrolysis" and received a US patent for their invention. The result is "hydrolyzed collagen" which means "cut into tiny pieces"- pieces that are now small enough for our digestive enzymes to completely break down, which in turn enables the collagen to be absorbed into the bloodstream at a high rate. 


Ingesting high concentration of hydrolyzed marine collagen supplement has been proven to to help reduce wrinkles and increase skin dermis density. 

Clinical studies shows consuming a daily dose of high concentration marine (fish) hydrolyzed collagen (10,000mg) can 
* increase skin dermis density 
* decrease in fine lines and wrinkles. 
* increase skin hydration 
* increase elasticity

A protein found in connective tissues of our body, collagen gives our skin support and elasticity while keeping it supple and firm.  Our body naturally produces the collagen it needs but production starts to decline as we age. This decline also results in our skin aging, causing fine lines, wrinkles, and skin losing firmness and elasticity. 

The concept of ingesting collagen supplements  to promote firmer, youthful skin originates from Japan and its now catching the attention of celebrities and beauty editors in the US and Europe. No wonder collagen supplements that promise beautiful, youthful skin are now the fastest growing anti-aging product category. As a result, there are many collagen brands and types to choose from-- but not all collagen beauty supplements are created equal.

Here are 7 tips for buying the best quality, most effective collagen beauty supplement that will benefit your skin, and help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
