Drinking Collagen

There is an increasing trend among Japanese and Chinese women in the last decades of drinking collagen to keep wrinkles away. Whether it works or not is not stopping other countries from catching on the trend as well.

"Collagen, the main protein of connective tissue in animals, is a long, fibrous, structural protein that gives strength to tissues and cells. It is also responsible for skin strength and elasticity, and its degradation leads to the formation of wrinkles that accompany aging.

Collagen is produced in the fibroblasts of the human dermis and is essential for healthy, firm skin. Both the quality and quantity of collagen decrease in ageing skin, often due to the effect of external factors such as exposure to the sun, especially UVA radiation. The result of this cross-linking is that the skin loses its elasticity.

As a structural protein, collagen has great tensile strength, and is the main component of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bones and teeth. In addition to retaining the firmness of skin, it is also responsible for strengthening blood vessels as well as connective tissues.

In Tokyo, you can by bottles containing 10,000 mg of collagen dissolved in a vitamin and mineral packed peach-flavored solution for approximately US$2 (230 yen). "

I haven't tried this as of yet but I am interested to see if others have. If so, what are your results? Any significant changes?
