However, a lot of people are not aware of what Collagen is or whether Collagen supplements are useful, there is also a lot of conjecture about the role of supplements in nutrition. But do not worry, we have got your back as we explain everything to you in details.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body making up 75% of the skin’s support structure. It is one of the primary building blocks of our skin. It provides elasticity and strength to the skin.  Collagen comes from the Greek word “Kólla” which means glue. That’s why it is considered as a glue that holds the skin cells together. There are at least 16 different types of collagen protein in the body. Type I, II, and III collagen are the most essential, and each plays a unique and vital role. Collagen helps bind the skin cells together and thus is a major contributor to maintaining skin elasticity. It also plays a role in restoring and replacing dead skin cells and provides texture, toughness, and structure to the body tissues. Depletion of Collagen can lead to saggy and wrinkled skin, thinning of hair, and other conditions like joint pain. Thus, it is extremely essential to include Collagen in the cleanest and natural form in our diet. Here are some clean plant-based foods that can naturally boost Collagen production.
