What it is and what it is for/why it is important

We’ve all heard of collagen. But do you know what it is?

Collagen is the most abundant protein we have in our body. In fact, it’s found in all tissues, such as skin, hair, nails, bones, and muscles.

Among its many functions, collagen helps strengthen our bones, relieves joint pain and controls blood pressure. It also strengthens our hair and nails, and is vital for maintaining skin stability and firmness.

Although there is medical research that states that from the age of 30 the natural production of this substance begins to decrease, the reality is that it’s important to encourage the consumption of collagen from an early age. Thanks to its healing properties, it’s ideal for people who suffer from acne, and on the other hand, it‘s also ideal for athletes, due to the wear and tear on joints and muscles generated by physical exercise.
