Collagen is the main component of the connective tissues within our bodies and these include tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. As we age our bodies become less adept at collagen synthesis which is the process of combining various amino acids in order to produce more collagen. The great thing about supplements like these is that the Collagen has already been broken down which makes it easier for the human body to absorb.
