What is Collagen and why do we need it??

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, accounting for approximately one third of its protein composition. It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas and teeth. The word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue, so you might think of it as the glue that holds all these things together.
Collagen is found in the dermis, or the middle layer of skin, and helps form a fibrous network of cells called fibroblasts, upon which new cells can grow. It also plays a role in replacing and restoring dead skin cells.
There are at least 16 types of collagen, but here are the four main types and their role in your body:
Type I: Accounts for 90% of your body’s collagen and is made of densely packed fibers. It provides structure to skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue and teeth.
Type II: Made of more loosely packed fibers and is found in elastic cartilage, which cushions joints.
Type III: Supports the structure of muscles, organs and arteries.
Type IV: Helps with filtration and is found in layers of your skin.
Women experience a dramatic reduction in collagen synthesis after menopause.
By the age of 60 years, a considerable decline in collagen production is normal. As you age, your body produces much less and lower-quality collagen. One of the most visible signs of this is in your skin, which becomes less firm and supple.
