Collagen and Aging

Sep 19th 2010 at 6:11 AM

Collagen is a kind of protein that makes up about 25 percent of all protein in the body. It is often referred to as the glue that binds the body together. Working in combination with elastin, collagen supports body tissues, giving them form and providing strength and firmness. Collagen is commonly associated with skin, where along with keratin it provides flexibility, resilience and strength. But age and continued exposure to the sun results in collagen degradation that leads to wrinkles. This makes collagen a critical ingredient in anti-aging. As a measure of counteracting visible signs of aging, skincare professionals advocate the stimulation of collagen production in skin cells. Golfers are particularly susceptible to collagen degradation because of long hours exposed to sunlight. One of the results of collagen degradation is premature aging, with visible symptoms like lines and wrinkles.
