The Collagen Co
Collagen is the main component of connective tissue and is the most abundant protein in the human body.
It makes up approximately 30% of the whole body and 70% to 80% of the skin's protein content. As a result, you'd be hard-pressed to find a body part that doesn't contain collagen. It's in your skin, hair, bones, cartilage, digestive system, and more.
Your body struggles to replace the collagen you’re losing as quickly as it's breaking down, starting from your 20s. As a result, you lose, on average, 1% of your collagen yearly.
Collagen can be added to hot or cold liquids such as water, tea, coffee and smoothies. Collagen can also be added to your morning oats and baked into cakes or biscuits for a delicious snack.
