Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and acts as the bodies ‘scaffolding’ as it provides structure to our skin, cells, tissues, organs … everything! Collagen is also part of what makes up the fascia matrix that is present throughout the entire body.
Hyaluronic Acid is also part of what makes up the fascia and is responsible for the hydration of the tissue.
Collagen and HA are big contributors to plump, supple, youthful, hydrated skin and connective tissue. They also play big roles in healthy joints, hair and nails. As a young baby/child we produce ample amounts of collagen and HA, however when we are twenty we stop producing it. Year by year it breaks down and that is a big contributor to the ‘aging’ process. It is vital to supplement these supportive nutrients to assist your body aging gracefully and keeping you connective tissue hydrated.
