Collagen FAQs & Collagen Supplement Facts

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a structural protein that helps to repair tissues and is an important building block in bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood. Collagen makes up 25% to 35% of whole-body protein content.

How does Collagen work?

Hydrolyzed collagen can deliver small, usable chain peptides efficiently into the skin dermis and trigger collagen production.

Collagen is formed in your skin by cells called fibroblasts. Fibroblasts need amino acids to produce collagen. Our marine collagen supplies your fibroblasts with these amino acids via collagen peptides (sometimes called hydrolysed collagen), which is a form of collagen that has been broken down into tiny molecules that can be easily and effectively absorbed by the body. Taken daily, each 25ml dose of Apothacare’s Collagen can help towards younger-looking skin and hair, as well as healthy joints and bones, by helping to stimulate collagen production. Also increased energy levels

Can collagen improve the condition of your hair?
