by Siddhartha R. Digital Marketing Executive
People who have ever searched for an anti-aging skin care product, they must have heard of collagen. Numbers of products are there that claim to ‘replenish collagen’ or ‘boost production collagen’ in the skin. It remains no doubt that collagen does have an important role in skin care, but certain marketing claims could be highly misleading.

It is a protein that is available in the body in abundant and it makes up most of the part of the skin, hair as well as nails. This post will act as a clear reflection of how collagen is an essential element for the well-being of skin as well as overall health.

Collagen in Brief
It is a long chain of individual amino acids like Arginine, Glycine, Hydroxyproline and Proline, etc. It is responsibility for the elasticity if the skin, strength of the hair and act as a connective tissue that has the ability to hold everything in place. In total, collagen accounts for 30% of total protein in the body and 70% of the protein in the skin.

Skin health Collagen
Till date, the scientists have identified 29 types of collagen; out of which human skin contain 14 different types of collagen. Out of this the statistics, 80% contain type 1 collagen for skin and 15% is based on type III. It is the fundamental protein for the extracellular area in different connective tissues including middle layer of the skin below the epidermis as well as the dermis.

Some Useful Benefits of Collagen
There is no contradiction in the fact that the element discussed in this post is essential for the entire body, but it has got some noticeably benefits to the skin also. As a person get older, the epidermic (external layer of the skin) starts losing its elasticity and gets thinner and the entire process is called ‘elastosis’. This is a stage where a person starts showing more signs of gaining and gets more and more wrinkles. 

But the good thing is these changes are irreversible and do not last long. In a study, it was found that women who have taken collagen supplements saw more than 20% reduction in the wrinkles. This suggests that supplemental collagen is very helpful in the improving the production process and let the skin remain young and rejuvenated for long.

Other Benefits
It was not all of a sudden, but collagen does have some other benefits also and they are extremely useful for the body. The element is highly useful for the bone and joint health, for maintaining the hormonal balance, helps in proper digestion, etc.

There are innumerable sources from where a person can get the element and in case it is not feasible then they can use natural superfoods offered by different companies looking forward to work for the wellbeing of human body.
