Did you know that collagen is the most abundant source of protein in our bodies? In fact, it accounts for over 30% of our bodies’ protein. There are many different types of collagen that are distinguished by their amino acid structure, but the primary types in our body are Types I, II, and III. Type I Collagen is found in our skin and accounts for 90% of our bodies’ collagen, which isn’t shocking considering that our skin is our largest organ! Type II is found in cartilage and connective tissue and Type III is found in bone marrow and lymphatic tissue. Can you see how collagen is pretty important? However, as we age, our natural collagen production begins to decline as our bodies struggle to break down and absorb the protein that creates collagen. That’s where Red Leaf Collagen Peptides comes in.
