Known as the glue that holds everything together, collagen is the substance that our cells and tissues require at all times of our life in order to function at peak condition.
It has been recognized for centuries for its unique characteristics in cell development and regeneration as well as for the properties in many tissues that make up our bodies.
Collagen is approximately 75-90% of our body’s overall skin volume. As one of the body’s most important protein, collagen is essential for our health in our youth and as we age. Without collagen, we would not be able to function as we do today.
Studies have shown that as the body ages, the collagen production decreases by approximately 1.5% each year beginning around the age of 25.
Simply put, by the time you reach the age of 45, your body will be operating with an entire 25% less of collagen than it needs for daily uses. These facts show that your body will continue to deplete your existing collagen stores at an alarming rate as you grow in age.
This should not be something that is overlooked, but rather taking into serious consideration as a significant preventative measure for your overall health and well being.
