When we think of youth, it’s impossible not to speak about collagen. It’s very well-known that this protein is one of the best allies for keeping our skin, bones and articulations healthy. According to the expert Maria Teresa Figueres Juhers - who was invited to the XII National Congress of the AEEM, Alicante 2012 - collagen represents 30% of all proteins in human organism. She also explains that collagen is a very important protein as it provides structure, resistance and elasticity to all the tissues and joints of our body. She also states that this protein starts decreasing at the age of 25. Therefore, our bones and skin get affected and different illnesses come up, and of course also wrinkles start appearing. This fact has made the scientific community to look for options that allow us to recover the lost collagen and to increase the production of collagen in our bodies. Nowadays, one of the most common ways to do it is taking collagen supplements, such as LIV Marine Collagen, which can come in the form of pills, capsules, liquid, etc. Collagen supplements simply boost the production of collagen.
There are more than 20 types of collagen, but most of the sources divide collagen in three main groups: Collagen Type I, Type II and Type III.
Collagen Type I: This is the one that provides flexibility and resistance to our body. It’s mostly present in our bones, skin and tendons.
Collagen Type II: It’s one of the most important for treating and preventing arthritis and it’s mostly present on cartilages.
Collagen Type III: It’s often related to collagen type I, as it’s mostly present in connective tissues.
