What is Collagen?

“Collagen is what provides strength and integrity to our body’s connective tissues. In fact collagen is one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.”

“How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.”

75%

Skin

Collagen constitutes 75% of the skin’s dry mass content. A key component of the skin’s structure, collagen fibers provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture.

85%

Tendons

Tendons are strong fibrous connective tissues that connect muscles to bones. During muscle contraction the tendons’ role is to transmit forces and withstand tension. Tendons contain 85% collagen type 1 and also proteoglycans.

70%

Joint cartilage

Joint cartilage is made up of cellular building blocks (chondrocytes), which produce an extracellular matrix, consisting of collagen and proteoglycans (mainly aggrecan). Collagen fibers make up 70% of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength, while proteoglycans serve as lubricant to the joint.

90

Bones

Representing around 90% of organic bone mass, collagen provides the structural framework on which calcium and other minerals are anchored. Collagen fibers also provide bone flexibility.
