COLLAGEN: YOUR SKIN’S ESSENTIAL CONNECTIVE TISSUE
Collagen is much more than a beauty buzzword or an over-the-counter skin cream ingredient. It is the main structural protein found in the body’s various connective tissues and has the unique distinction of being the most abundant protein in mammals. In fact, it represents approximately one-third of the human body’s total proteins. Hence it plays a major part in our general health and well-being from our cartilages to our skin to our bones and teeth. But what really is collagen and how does it work?
As we all know, the human body is made up of trillions of cells, constantly reproducing, depleting and replenishing themselves as we move through our days and sleep through our nights. Collagen is composed of amino acids bound together to form a triple helix of elongated fibrils, known as a collagen helix. These fibrils together create, in essence, a "brick wall" of connective tissue which is essential for the healthy formation of skin, tendons, bones, teeth, hair and cartilage as our bodies are growing and maturing.
As one ages, the body’s spontaneous production of collagen slows down and there is a natural loss of proteins within these connective tissues that reside in the dermis layer of skin which result in a loosening effect on the outer layers of the epidermis. In other words, wrinkles and sagging skin begin to appear on the face and neck. Due to the loss of these intrinsic proteins, the skin becomes less elastic and compact, hair loses its shine and muscles and bones experience a slow process of degradation as time passes. In addition to natural aging, there can be other factors which lead to collagen reduction. which can include premature aging, hormonal imbalances and environmental stresses. But there is hope!
