Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, found in bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. It occurs throughout the body, but particularly in skin, bones and connective tissues; some fibrils are stronger than steel.
It holds the body together forming a scaffold to provide strength and structure; it can be used in dressings, to attract new skin cells to wound sites.
Endogenous collagen is synthesised by the body. Exogenous comes from an outside source, such as supplements.
Production of this vital building block declines with age and exposure to factors such as smoking and UV light.
Hydrolysed collagen has been extracted from its original source and broken down into smaller molecules to make it easier for us to absorb into our bodies. Once hydrolysed it takes on antioxidant properties.
