Why is a baby’s skin so soft, supple and smooth? The answer is collagen. Collagen is responsible for cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin. 30% of the protein that forms our body is collagen. More than 70% of the protein that makes our skin is collagen. Our body produces it, but not very easily and even less efficiently as we age. It is not available from most of the foods in the common diet. The result of this deficiency is sagging, wrinkled skin, joint aches, and even sometimes, digestive disorders.
- Aging and Collagen
- By the age of 25 body’s collagen begins to deplete
- By the age of 40 your body’s collagen is depleting faster than it is being produced
- By age 60, over half of the body’s collagen has been depleted
- It supports all major organ function – your SKIN is the largest organ in your body and 70% of it is collagen
Other causes of depletion –
- Dietary deficit, stress depletions, general neglect
- Sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) rays in sunlight cause collagen in the skin to break down at an increased rate as well as cause a decrease in collagen production.
- Smoking: Firsthand smoke results in the most damage but even secondhand smoke results in collagen depletion
- Certain autoimmune disorders cause the body’s immune system to attack and destroy connective tissue and collagen
