What is Collagen?
Collagen is a type of protein that can form a secondary structure that is helical, which makes it strong, resilient, and dense. Collagen doesn’t dissolve once ingested, making it incredibly robust.
Collagen differs from other types of protein, as it is rich in three amino acids in particular – glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline – which are known for their benefits for connective tissue, as well as hair, skin, and nails.‡
Why Do We Need Collagen?
Collagen plays an important role in strengthening and maintaining connective tissue throughout the body, helping to provide it with structure and rigidity, particularly where the following areas are concerned:‡
As we get older, our bodies tend to break down collagen at a faster rate than we can produce it.
Inflammation can also affect collagen production, and athletes’ bodies can be especially prone to this.
This is why many choose to take collagen supplements to provide their bodies with extra support to help fuel their performance.‡
How Effective are Collagen Supplements?
Increasing the levels of collagen peptides in your body can help to promote collagen production, helping you to support your connective tissues.‡
This means that taking collagen supplements could help to relieve discomfort in the tendons and joints following a high-intensity training session, as well as potentially helping to improve mobility.‡
