Described by our founder James as “the glue that holds us together”, collagen is also crucial as a structural protein. It affects the way that we look, feel and move.
Am I losing collagen?
Our bodies naturally produce more collagen for everyday repair and renewal but from our early to mid-20s, the rate of collagen production begins to slow down. This means that every adult is losing collagen as they age.
Scientific studies show that we lose up to 1.5% percent of collagen each year; by the time we are 40, our collagen levels have dropped by 30%. This loss accelerates for women during and after the menopause.
