What Is Collagen?

Collagen makes up approximately one-third of the proteins in the human body and is the most abundant protein. The word "collagen" is derived from the Greek word "kolla," meaning glue, and encompasses a family of proteins that have a triple helical structure resembling a rod.

Collagen provides elasticity, resistance, freedom of movement, and vitality to tissues, organs, and structures, keeping them together. It is the primary structural component of the skin and plays an important role in the health of bones, tissues, joints, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, hair, and nails.
