Collagen is a major structural protein

collagen function in body
About one third of all of the protein in your body is collagen. Collagen is a major structural protein, forming molecular cables that strengthen the tendons and vast, resilient sheets that support the skin and internal organs. Bones and teeth are made by adding mineral crystals to collagen. Collagen provides structure to our bodies, protecting and supporting the softer tissues and connecting them with the skeleton. But, in spite of its critical function in the body, collagen is a relatively simple protein. The world "collagen" is derived from kola, the Greek word for glue. Collagen is found throughout the body - in skin, muscles, tendons, and bones. Fibers of collagen are woven together like threads in fabric to form a framework into which new cells can grow. In the skin, collagen provides texture, resiliency, and shape. The collagen in human skin is very similar to the collagen found in certain animals thus the reason we use animal collagen.

What is the best Collagen?

Collagen can only be absorbed as a low molecular weight from 100% pure collagen. Due to the lower molecular weight, there are greater soluble capacity and enhanced bioavailability in the body.
