Collagen is the fibrous protein component of skin, cartilage, bone and connective tissue. With age, our collagen begins to weaken and become less pliant. The result is dry, wrinkled skin.
Studies have shown that adequate collagen production can also help support strong coronary arteries, cartilage and bones, as well as improve the function of the organs, which are cemented by collagen fibers.
For the optimal production of collagen in the body, a continuous supply of vitamin C and the amino acids lysine and proline is required. Vitamin C and lysine are not produced in the body, so dietary supplementation with these collagen-building nutrients is essential to help keep your skin healthy and beautiful.*
