Collagen is one of the most important structural elements of our body, accounting to 25%-30% of the total protein.
Proteins are the “building blocks of life.” They molecularly bond together to form your bones, hair, skin, eyes, blood vessel walls and even your digestive enzymes, protective enzymes, neuro-transmitters and your hormones and seventy-five percent (75%) of the skin is collagen.
An average person starts to lose the ability to produce collagen on its own as early as age 19.This depletion of collagen is most evident with the collapse of the dermal layer which then contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. The loss of collagen leaves the bones exposed which causes the painful rubbing.
According to Rena Davis (MSc, CNC, Nutritionist, Biochemist), “The most important thing that a protein does is hold information. Proteins can signal or direct certain processes in the human body which gives us the ability to regenerate from cell to cell, system to system and organ to organ.”
