Is collagen a protein?

Yes, collagen is a protein. It is the most abundant protein in the human body, making up about 25% to 35% of the total protein content.

Collagen is a fibrous protein that is found in the connective tissue of animals, including humans. It is an important component of skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and other connective tissues, and it gives these tissues strength and support.

Collagen is also important for maintaining the elasticity and smoothness of skin, as it helps to form a network of fibres that support the skin’s structure.

Collagen is produced naturally by the body, but it can also be obtained through the consumption of collagen-rich foods or supplements.

Collagen supplements are typically made from animal sources, such as cowhide, chicken, or fish, and they are available in a variety of forms, including pills, powders, and liquids.

Our vegan collagen supplements are made from plant-based sources such as soy, rice, or peas.
