Collagen is found in all parts of the body and acts as a cell binding substance. In fact, collagen is the most common protein in our body – about 30% of the total and 70% of the skin protein in the body. Collagen is like the scaffolding of our skin, and without it, it breaks its structure and sags.
Collagen is the main protein in human connective tissue. It is one of the long fibrillar (fibrous) structural proteins whose functions differ seriously from those of globular (globular) proteins such as enzymes.
Collagen is strong and non-stretchable with great tensile strength and is a major component of cartilage, tendons and ligaments, as well as a major protein component of bones and teeth. Its concentration ranges from 23% in the skull bones, 50% in the cartilage, 64% in the cornea of the eye, to 74% in the skin.
Collagen strengthens blood vessels and plays an important role in tissue development. It is contained in crystalline form in the cornea and lens of the eye.
Together with soft keratin, it provides strength and elasticity to the skin, and its degradation with age results in wrinkles. An important goal in preventing the formation and removing wrinkles that have already appeared is to reduce the breakdown of collagen and increase its quantity in the body.
Collagen is constantly reproduced, but after the age of 25 this process is hampered and gradually weakens with age. Delayed synthesis or lack of collagen causes soft tissue aging and osteoporosis of the bones. Increasing collagen deficiency with age also leads to drying and wrinkling of the skin, as well as a decrease in its elasticity.
Collagen is contained in the following AquaSource products:
