Collagen Type I & III Dietary Supplement

Collagen Type I & III

Collagen is a protein in the extracellular matrix with a molecular structure that consists of three helical polypeptide chains that are coiled around each other to form a triple helix* Collagen fibers are typically found in collagen bundles in the body's extracellular matrix.

Type I Collagen is the major matrix protein of the skin, bones, tendons, ligaments and the cornea of the eye.* Type I collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and contributes to the health and integrity of many tissues.* As the significant extracellular matrix protein in bones, Type I Collagen contributes to the calcification process of the bone matrix.*

Type III Collagen is frequently co-expressed with Collagen type I in the elastic connective tissues of the skin, lungs, gut, vascular system, uterus but NOT bone.* Collagen’s tensile strength also plays an important role in connective tissues of the heart, liver, lungs, kidneys and intestines.*

In the body, fibroblast cells are the main source of the extracellular matrix proteins which includes collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.*
