I am very excited to share this post with you today! I get questions all the time about collagen since I am always using it on snapchat and Instagram.
So, what is the function of collagen? Why should you take it as a supplement?
Since this is part of the chemist solutions series, let’s check out the chemistry of it first. Collagen is a protein found in the human body. The function of collagen is to provide structural support and strength in the skin, bones, and connective tissues. It also replaces and restores dead skin cells. You have probably heard about collagen for years in skin creams or face products.
As we get older, our body produces less collagen, which is why we get wrinkles and the skin loses elasticity. Collagen is very popular to use topically, like with these under eye pads I love to use!
