Collagen is a fibrous protein that is necessary for giving support to tissues in our body like skin, hair and nails. Collagen provides our skin with strength, resilience and flexibility and makes it GLOW. The amount of collagen produced decreases as we age. It is the reduction in the amount of collagen that gives us wrinkles. We can prevent the breakdown of collagen through proper nutrition by ensuring we get enough nutrients like vitamin C and zinc.
