Natural Collagen and our Skin

Collagen is a protein present in all the body’s organs and tissues. It provides the matrix that sustains the body’s structure.

Collagen’s main function is to sustain tendons, skin and cartilage. It provides integrity, firmness and elasticity to their structures. Maximizing collagen levels through diet will keep skin supple.

Collagen is present throughout the body. To date, 29 types of collagen have been identified. Over 90% of the collagen in the body is of type 1-5, with the most abundant being Type 1.


  • Collagen Type One: skin, tendon, vascular, ligature, organs, bone
  • Collagen Type Two: cartilage
  • Collagen Type Three: reticulate fibers
  • Collagen Type Four: forms bases of cell basement membrane

Type 1 collagen is the best type of collagen for use for the skin. It is well established that collagen is responsible for skin strength and elasticity, and its degradation leads to wrinkles that accompany aging.
