What is Collagen?
Essential structural support for hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments and bones.
Collagen is the major structural protein in connective tissue and the most abundant protein in the human body. It provides essential structural support for hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments, bones and blood vessels.
There are a number of different types of collagen; the most prevalent two in the body are Types 1 and 3 with Type 1 being the most abundant and being present in almost every type of tissue.
Bone contains almost exclusively Type 1 Collagen. The collagen in bone provides structural strength to the bone tissue and prevents bone fragility. Type 1 is also a major protein in skin connective tissue providing skin with its strength and resiliency.
Type 3 is found in high levels in cardiovascular tissue and newly developing skin.
Types 1 and 3 are often found together in the same tissue as they complement each other.
Structure of collagen
Collagen is a long fibrous protein that makes up the matrix of connective tissue. It gives sturdiness and integrity to the fibre matrix. Collagen molecules are rich in amino acids, particularly glycine and proline. Doctor's Best Collagen has been enzymatically hydrolyzed into component amino acids for optimal absorption and utilization by the body.
