When Should I Start Taking Collagen?

When Should I Start Taking Collagen?

We've been learning recently that collagen is an essential component of our body's overall strength, stability, and mobility... but when exactly should I start taking collagen?

There is no specific age at which scientists and researchers specify we should begin taking collagen. In fact, collagen is acceptable for any age group (even children). 

However, our body makes a steady production of its own collagen until our mid-twenties. By the time we reach our mid-twenties, typically about age 25, what occurs is that our body begins to slow its natural collagen production by about 1.5% every year. That means, in order to sustain our necessary levels of collagen to keep our skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, gut, blood vessels, organs (including our heart and liver) strong and in tact, we need to replenish these levels with an outside source. While diet assists in building collagen, the amount of collagen we would typically consume is not enough to replace or meet the decreasing levels of our body's prior collagen production, hence, the necessity of a collagen supplement (link: see our Premium Marine Collagen Powder).

The Scoop on Collagen

The Scoop on Collagen

Drink collagen? Did I read that right? Isn't collagen the substance people inject into their skin? Why would I want to drink collagen? 

Let us explain.

Collagen is a smooth, structural protein found within the fibrous connective tissues of our body (also known as cartilage), including our skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, gut, blood vessels, and organs. Its purpose is to provide strength and elasticity to our connective tissue to enable the proper strength and functioning of our bodies.

Let's break this down a bit more.

Your connective tissues are comprised of bundles of these collagen fibers. These fibers provide the strength, support, elasticity, and stability that your connective tissues need to stay strong. It essentially provides durability to keep these tissues intact, and prevent tearing from the structures to which our connective tissues are attached (hence why collagen is important to athletes, and individuals who exercise frequently).

There are several different types of collagen composed by the body. The most abundant, and arguably most important, form of collagen, is type I collagen. Type I collagen accounts for nearly 70% of the body's total collagen makeup, and over 90% of the collagen in our skin, hair, and nails.
