Collagen is the most abundant natural protein in our bodies, making up around a third of our body mass, and being present in bones, joints, muscle, skin, organs, hair, and other types of connective tissue.
Scientists believe that it's production slows down or stops as we age, with the effect of this depletion being detioration of the skin, joints and connective tissue.
When we are young, our collagen levels are at their highest, which is why our children have good joints, smooth skin and shiny hair!
Previously collagen best known as a beauty treatment, however Professor Greg Whyte at the British Olympic Medical Unit, says it can have even more benefits to our bodies, joints and wellbeing.
"Collagen is the most common protein in the body. Not only is it good for our skin, but we also need it for healthy joints, physical resilienceand the ability to recover from injuries. The body loses 1.5% per year. By the age of 40 we have lost 30%."
Supplements perform as well as natural Collagen in helping the body
Recent research by Roland Moskowitz, a Professor of Orthopaedics at Case Western University in America, showed that patients taking collagen supplements showed a significant reduction in pain, and an improvement in joint mobility, with 93% achieveing positive results, some after only two weeks.
Most interestingly as well as helping the existing tissues, many studies have shown that collagen supplements have the ability to stimulate the growth of new cartilage, with patients who have damaged or arthritic joints showing improvements in mobility and pain relief when taking the supplement.
