What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body which comprises of approximately 35% of the total protein content. Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix existing in various connective tissues and acts like the glue that holds the body together.

Collagen is what keeps skin looking plump and subtle while mitigating wrinkle appearance. We lose collagen as we age, and the process starts as early as in our 20’s. Studies show we lose about 1 teaspoon of collagen per year. When our collagen regeneration capacity decreases, in addition to collagen loss related to natural skin aging process, this phenomenon weakens skin elasticity and causes deformity in face contour when everything starts to sag. As collagen consists of one of the most important cellular matrix in our structural foundation of all our tissues, loss in collagen leads to disruption of facial harmony.
Further, environmental pollution such as pollutants in water, air, and food also deplete the collagen level in our body unknowingly. Thus, collagen replenishment acting as the only alternative to a youthful appearance while feeling great about oneself and confident emotionally. This is why patients are actively searching for collagen-stimulating products and treatments.
