Collagen is a naturally produced protein responsible for 80% of all connective tissue and 75% of skin. It helps to keep our skin tight and hair and nails strong. It’s also what makes your complexion plump, and youthful. As we age, our collagen starts to decrease, which is when signs of ageing start to appear. Certain lifestyle factors can also interfere with collagen production, including consuming excess sugar and alcohol, sun exposure, and smoking. Women also produce less collagen than men, and from the age of 25 it decreases at a rate of around one per cent per year. However, you can stop this from happening by supplementing with collagen.
Key facts about collagen:
- Collagen is the most abundant protein found in nature.
- Collagen gives skin its strength and structure and is responsible for 75 per cent of the skin.
- Collagen supplements are made from one of three main sources: bovine, porcine or marine.
- Marine collagen is absorbed 1.5 times more efficiently into the body.
- Collagen declines with age and can be damaged by sunlight, smoking and high sugar consumption.
Collagen supplementation has been clinically proven to reduce the signs of ageing in our skin with fewer fine lines, increased hydration and a more youthful appearance. According to the latest study, published by the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, the use of collagen supplements “led to improvement in facial skin conditions, including facial skin moisture, elasticity, wrinkles and roughness.” Experts encourage us to start collagen consumption before the signs of ageing start to take effect as once skin starts to thin and sag, it’s much harder to correct. There are three main sources of collagen: bovine, porcine and marine, but the effectiveness varies between sources. The preferred source is marine collagen because of its superior bioavailability (the quantity of the ingested dose that is absorbed). It is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body due to the smaller particle size of fish collagen peptides.
