What is Collagen?

1 minute read

Collagen ("glue producer" in Greek) is a naturally occurring protein in the body. This protein, made up of amino acids, is the most abundant in the human body. Collagen has a dual function. Its main action is to fix calcium on the bones, thus preserving the joints and preventing osteoarthritis. Collagen is also good for the skin. It allows the tissues of the epidermis to regenerate and preserve its elasticity.

The benefits of collagen on the skin:

To remedy the first signs of aging, hyaluronic acid proves to be a weapon. Used wisely, collagen is also a very good alternative. Also called "youth protein", collagen has the beneficial effect of repairing body tissues and thus facilitating the healing process. However, at the age of 25, the collagen production of our body decreases, fades and so the first wrinkles appear. Luckily, collagen is not only present in our body. The fauna and flora also have this miracle ingredient that is used to effectively fight against aging skin. In injection or integrated into cosmetics, collagen exists in several forms to prevent skin aging.
