What is Collagen?
Collagen is protein molecules made up of amino acids. In fact, it’s the most prominent protein in your body providing structural support to bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Essentially, it’s the glue that holds them all together. Collagen is divided into groups depending on the type of structures they form. There are various types of collagen that have been discovered, but by far, the most common are types I through Ill.
Our bodies naturally produce collagen. However, as we age, degradation of the naturally-occurring protein begins – usually from around our early to mid-twenties. This is when signs of ageing start to become visible, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and when replenishing our collagen levels elicits tangible benefits.
What is the best type of collagen to take?
When choosing collagen supplements, type plays a role in bioavailability and overall efficacy. Marine Collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently than collagen from cows or pigs, meaning it has optimal bioavailability. It’s also hydrolysed, a chemical-free, enzymatic process that creates a low molecular weight collagen peptide powder. The lower the molecular weight, or the smaller the collagen particles, the easier collagen is to process, and the more absorption is enhanced.
