What is Collagen? The Importance of Collagen Supplements

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, making up about 30% of its total protein. The body produces this vital protein type and takes it in through meat consumption.

Collagen supplements are important as the body is not always producing as much collagen as needed. Collagen production in the body can be stunted for a number of reasons. As one grows older, their body’s collagen production naturally declines. Smoking, alcohol consumption, and a poor diet (something very prevalent in this day and age) can also lower the body’s means of producing collagen.

The Benefits of Clean Collagen

Clean Collagen is a powder supplement produced by Custom Collagen Inc., an All-American company focused on making products tailored to the needs of our body.

There are 28 noted types of Collagen discovered in the body. The Clean Collagen supplement we offer at Andreano Chiropractic comprises both Type I and Type III Collagen to form a healthy blend for the body. Type I Collagen is the most abundant form, comprising about 90% of the body’s collagen. This type of collagen strengthens the structure of skin, bones, tendons, and ligaments, while Type III Collagen strengthens muscles, arteries, and organs.

Clean Collagen’s blend of these two types offers numerous benefits for the body. Besides for the obvious enrichening of skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, arteries, and organs, Clean Collagen also can relieve joint pain, reduce bone loss, rejuvenate the health and youthful look of skin, better hair and nail health, and support heart, gut, and brain health. In addition, studies have shown that collagen supplements can help alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis. 

The Benefits of Collagen C

Collagen C

Despite what one might initially believe, Standard Process’ Collagen C isn’t actually a collagen supplement, but a Vitamin C supplement. The purpose of Collagen C isn’t to supply the body with the collagen it needs, but to supply it with the vitamins and amino acids necessary to produce collagen on its own. 

The elasticity and tension of skin is a result of collagen and elastin fibers comprising the connective tissue in the middle layer of skin. The collagen built by this supplement serves the purpose of enriching the skin by maintaining its elasticity and tension. The Vitamin C in this supplement also plays a great role in the immune system and in tissue health due to its antioxidant activity.
