Collagen is the most important protein in the human body

It accounts for up to 30% of total human protein mass and 70% of skin protein mass. In the following article you will learn how a collagen deficiency manifests itself, what causes it, to what extent it damages your joints and how you can compensate for this lack of the valuable protein collagen in your joints.

After the age of 25, the human body gradually loses its ability to rebuild collagen on its own. We are not able to block this process, but we can slow it down through collagen supplementation.

Collagen is involved in the basic life functions of almost all systems and organs. It also has an important function in the human immune system.

A collagen deficiency therefore manifests itself, among other things, in a loss of smooth and painless joint function, a weakening of the skin, hair and nails, a reduced ability of the body to regenerate after physical exertion, dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal system and in the work of tissues and organs for which collagen and interacting substances have strategic functions. Disorders of the immune system, in which collagen has a defence function by preventing the invasion and spread of pathogens (environmental toxins), microorganisms and cancer cells, are also dangerous to health and life.

Read on to see what other effects a collagen deficiency can have.
