What is it?
Collagen Type 1 is a macronutrient and consists of protein arranged in a unique and extremely strong triple helix structure. It is the most abundant protein in the body, more than 30% of the protein in your body is collagen, which makes it one of the most important structures in your body. 70% of your skin consists of collagen type I, it is the structure in the skin that gives your skin its firmness, it holds the hyaluronic acid for skin moisture and elastin which gives your skin its elasticity.
Where in the body is it found?
90% of your bone consists of collagen type I, which is the main structure of your bones. It serves as a scaffold for organic minerals such as calcium to bind on, a process called osteoblast. It increases bone density, bone strength and gives your bones flexibility.
85% of tendons and 75% of ligaments consists of collagen. It improves joint flexibility and therefore reduces joint pain and discomfort. It supports mobility and stabilizes joints.
