What Is Collagen?
There are many types of collagen found throughout the body, from you muscles and bones to your hair and skin. Research has shown that certain forms of collagen are responsible for the structure and elasticity of the skin, but after the age of 25 we tend to lose approximately 1.5% of our natural collagen stores every year. Many factors can further slow collagen production including smoking, excess sugar, UV rays, excess alcohol consumption and eating processed food.
It's hard to get collagen from diet alone and the wellness market is saturated with many supplements claiming to compensate for this.
However, collagen can only be sourced from animals, predominately marine and bovine, which is derived from animals (fish and cows) using ground up bones, scales, skin and other body parts. This is often sourced from factory farms which have devastating impacts to our environment.
Animal and marine collagens also have different structures to our human collagen and do not provide all of the essential amino acids that our bodies require.
