Collagen is the most abundant and arguably the most important protein in the body. In fact, collagen constitutes about 30% of the protein in your body. Aside from water, collagen is the most plentiful substance in your body—pretty crazy, right?
Collagen makes up 70% of the protein in our skin, and it’s one of the primary structural proteins in joints, bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, hair, fingernails, blood vessels, spinal discs, the intestinal wall, the blood-brain barrier, and more. Collagen is the glue—literally, it comes from the Greek word for glue—that supports, connects, and holds everything together.
Not surprisingly, maintaining healthy levels of collagen is vital to support many aspects of overall health, including:
- Smooth, healthy, young-looking skin
- Strong, healthy fingernails and glossy hair
- Healthy, supple joints and strong, stable bones
- Healthy digestion and gut health
- Strong, healthy tendons and ligaments
There’s more—including healthy, flexible blood vessels and properly functioning organs—but the moral of the story is that collagen is a vital component of your entire body, and it has a tremendous impact on how you look and feel.
