Are you a coffee lover? Do you care about the way that you look? Chances are that if you are human, then on some level you do care about how you look even if you aren’t a lover of coffee. Now there are studies showing how if you put collagen in your coffee it can give results to die for! To learn more about this, read on this article.
- Collagen, composed of the amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine, is the main protein found in animal connective tissue, and an essential building block for our skin and bodies.
- In terms of skin health, collagen is necessary for providing the elasticity, suppleness, and regeneration of our skin, meaning it keeps us looking youthful and wrinkle-free – hooray!
- However, as we age, collagen production decreases and the outer part of our skin, the epidermis, begins to thin and lose elasticity and moisture.
