“Collagen peptides” is the new buzzword. Every health guru has this word on their lips.
Collagen, which makes up 30 percent of the proteins in our body, is one of the basic building blocks of the body. It ensures everything from cohesion, to skin elasticity. It’s also what ensures regeneration of the body’s connective tissues, which includes the skin and bones.
However, as we age, collagen production begins to decrease. From our early 30’s, the first signs of ageing begin to appear. The loss of production affects all connective tissues.
Add to it lifestyle factors like smoking, and unhealthy eating habits. They also contribute to decreasing collagen levels. So, your body tends to show signs of ageing, before you’d want it.
