Why is collagen so important?
Collagen is one of the most important proteins in our bodies and the most abundant one (especially the type I collagen). You can find collagen in many parts of your body including your muscles, your digestive system, the bones, your skin and face, tendons and even your blood vessels. For tendons and joints, you can imagine collagen as the adhesive that keeps our bones together. The body also uses collagen for our skin, providing it with natural elasticity and resistance.
As we age, our body produces less collagen naturally. We often see this process takes place as we find ourselves suffering from joint pain, having more wrinkles appearing on our face, and many other challenges to our body and health.
Nutrition, our lifestyle and what we eat has a strong impact on the level of collagen of our body and can lead to depleted collagen levels. Keeping levels above a certain threshold is important as several diseases can also be collagen-related. A diet high in sugar or too much sun can also impact our collagen levels.
The human body counts with 16 different types of collagen. Most of the body supply is made of collagen type I, II and III (collagen type I, II and III) which represent more than 80% of the supply. Collagen is often considered as a complex protein.
Codeage Multi Collagen Peptides powder is unique in that it is sourced from different animals, not artificially created in a lab. That's how Codeage is able to offer a unique top quality product which leverages the benefits of traditional sources of collagen.
The collagen in this formula comes from four different sources: bovine, chicken, fish and eggs. These sources are responsible for giving you five different types of collagen. Each type can help a different area of your body:
- Type I: for your skin, tendons, organs, and bone tissue
- Type II: for your cartilage throughout your body
- Type III: for the reticular fibers between the areas listed in type I
- Type V: for the surfaces of cells, your hair, and the placenta of any unborn child
- Type X: for the creation and healing of bone tissue

Amino Acids in Collagen
Like all proteins, collagen is made up of amino acids. They have many functions in the human body for example, breaking down food, repairing tissues, and more. Humans can only produce 10 of the 20 amino acids, however we humans can get the rest from food or supplements. The body usually produces amino acids under ideal conditions, but in some cases it might not produce enough. Consuming them through foods or powder can be a huge help.
The primary amino acids in collagen are glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.
It is the smallest amino acid and the most abundant one found in collagen (about 1/3). Its functions are DNA construction, muscle growth, reduction of inflammation, regulation of blood sugar levels, metabolism, and more.
Proline makes 19% of collagen. It plays a huge role in protein synthesis, wound healing, immune response, metabolism, antioxidant reactions and joint health.
The key role of hydroxyproline is to keep collagen stable.
Where does collagen come from?
Collagen comes from mammals or humans, both can produce collagen. As we age, our collagen production decreases and so our joints and skin start to lose their structural integrity. We can also get collagen from the foods we eat, but it can be very hard for us to absorb it if taken in big amounts.
Collagen protein supplements are more readily available and more convenient for us to use. They are naturally sourced from animals, by cooking their bones and broken down using an enzyme treatment so that they are easy to absorb when consumed.
The glue that holds your body together
Collagen is also important for the growth, strength, and regeneration of hair and nails. It helps increase blood flow in your scalp and nails. Therefore, it helps provide hair follicles with the necessary amino acids and nutrients needed for stronger, thicker, and healthier hair.
