What is Collagen

    Collagen is a protein found in connective tissues of the body. It is significant in making certain parts of the 

body such as nails strong and is also an important factor in joint health. Collagen supplements come in various

 forms. One of the most common is called Gelatin. For a long time Gelatin has been used in collagen 

replacement and has been thought to strengthen nails and hair. Individuals suffering from conditions such as

 osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis often take collagen supplements to replace collagen in the joints. The 

collagen supplements mostly used in such a case has chicken collagen as an active ingredient. There are also 

collagen creams that are applied on the skin to help reduce wrinkles and lines.

    Collagen is a form of fibrous protein that is normally present in the bodies of humans and even mammals. 

It provides a supportive structure for various body tissues such as muscles, bones and ligaments and prevents 

them from falling apart. It works with another compound called Elastin to provide strength and firmness to the

 tissues. Collagen also works to keep the skin looking firm, tight, flexible and youthful looking. Young people 

naturally produce more collagen than older people. With age, the collagen in the body breaks down leading to 

wrinkles and folds around the mouth. As such, collagen stimulation leads to a more youthful looking skin. The

substance has been used for a long time in combating signs of aging.
