Collagen is a protein fiber in human and animal bodies that strengthen and cushion many different areas of our bodies. Itโ€™s specifically found in connective tissues such as cartilage, tendons, bones and ligaments. ๐ˆ๐ญโ€™๐ฌ ๐ค๐ข๐ง๐ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ค๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ ๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ก๐จ๐ฅ๐๐ฌ ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฌ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐จ๐ ๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ.โ

๐ˆ – accounts for 90% of your bodyโ€™s collagen. Found in skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue and teeth.โ 
๐ˆ๐ˆ – more loosely packed fibers like elastic cartilage in your jointsโ 
๐ˆ๐ˆ๐ˆ – collagen in the structures of your muscles, organs and arteriesโ 
๐ˆ๐• – fibers that help with filtration. Found in the layers of your skinโ 
โ 
As you age, your body produces less collagen and the collagen you have weakens, which is why supplements have become so popular. Supplements specifically break down larger collagen proteins into smaller peptides, so they can be absorbed more easily into your body,โ 
โ 
Benefits of a collagen supplement include:โ 
> glowing skinโ 
> strong bones & jointsโ 
> healthier hair & nailsโ 
> improved gut healthโ
