Collagen: The Skin Structural Protein
Collagen is a major structural protein in the skin. It plays a key role in providing the structural scaffolding for cells, tissues, and organs. If it weren’t for collagen, the body would literally fall apart. Collagen also gives the skin its strength and durability and is responsible for the smooth, plump appearance of young, healthy skin.
Collagen and Beauty
Collagen makes up 70 percent of our skin; thus, the smooth, plump appearance of young, healthy skin is due in large part to the presence of healthy collagen levels. Because of this, beauty seekers around the globe search for new ways to boost collagen levels and repair past collagen damage—some go so far as to inject collagen proteins into the skin to plump wrinkles and add volume to the lips. The breakdown of healthy collagen and the decline in collagen production leads to the development of unwanted wrinkles and the appearance of aged skin.
As we age, collagen production tends to diminish. Exposure to UV rays, chlorinated water and harmful free radicals also causes collagen reduction. When collagen is reduced it leads to skin dehydration and wrinkles.
WHAT CAUSES COLLAGEN REDUCTION?
* BIOLOGICAL FACTORS
– Natural aging process
– Hormonal changes
– Poor Metabolism
– Chikenpox and acne
* ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS
– Overexposure to UV Rays
– Chlorinated Water
– Free radicals
* PERSONAL LIFESTYLE
– Cigarette smoking
and these leads to Aged Skin.
HOW TO REPLACE LOST COLLAGEN?
Like most proteins, collagen can be derived from a variety of food sources. Soy products like milk and cheese, cark green vegetables like spinach and asparagus, peanuts like cashew, pecans and almonds contain healthy amounts of collagen. Fish like tuna and salmon are excellent sources of omega fatty acids that stimulate collagen production. Red fruits like red peppers, tomatoes and berries, help boost anti oxidants to enhance collagen’s function.
However, having a protein-rich diet is not enough. Beyond the aesthetic appeal, our skin deserves more because it sheilds our body from harm. Thus, it is a must to keep it nourished with collagen regularly.
