What exactly is collagen?
Collagen is derived from the Greek word Colla, which means glue or bind together and the suffix -gen, which means produce. Collagen is quite strong and very stretchy, which makes it difficult to break. So you can think of collagen as the glue that holds the body together. It is an important glue-forming protein that is present in our body. Collagen plays a very important role for a lot of organs throughout our body, because our bones, joints, muscles, nails, connective tissue and our skin are all made up of collagen. Our body makes this itself, but unfortunately after about the age of 25, its production begins to decline more and more. From the age of 30, collagen production actually decreases by about 1% per year. But additional factors such as the sun, smoking and certain foods also cause the breakdown of collagen fibers in the skin.
