Collagen makes up around 30 percent of the body. You can find it in the skin where it prevents lines, wrinkles and sagging and associated with slowing down the ageing process. You can also find it in connective tissues like muscles, joints, organs and arteries.
We lose collagen at an alarming rate of 1.5 percent per year from the age of 20. Over time this means the skin is thinner, looser, drier, less resilient, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
Hence, topping up our collagen would be the sensible solution.
