What is collagen?
Collagen is an endogenous protein and a main component of the body’s various connective tissues. Collagen has a fiber-like structure that is used to make connective tissues and is thereby a main component of muscles, skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, hair and nails.
The body can produce collagen on its own. But as we age our bodies gradually produce less and less. The collagen production decreases with about 1-2% a year from around the age of 25. This gradual decline in collagen production results in loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles and also has negative effects on joints and mobility.
Collagen is essential for both healthy joints and ligaments and for smooth, elastic skin. Supplements with collagen help replenish collagen in the body, effectively slowing down the aging process and also aiding joints and ligaments.

Types of collagen
There are many types of collagen that have been identified, but the types I, II and III are the most common. Type I makes up the most part of the body’s collagen and provides structure to skin, bones, ligaments and tendons. Type II collagen is especially found in cartilage, which provides joint support. And type III is commonly found in muscles, arteries and organs.
Collagen for Joints
Collagen is widely considered to be one of the best ways to support your joints. Collagen supplements increase the integrity of cartilage - the connective tissue that protects joints and bones and therefore promote overall joint health, flexibility and mobility. Swedish Nutra offers a variety of joint supporting collagen supplements with type I, III and III collagen for great results.
Collagen for Beauty
Collagen is a major component of the skin. In fact, collagen makes up 70-80% of the dry weight of the skin. Studies show that oral intake of collagen improves hydration, elasticity and can reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Swedish Nutra offers a variety of collagen supplements for beauty with type I and III for great youth boosting results.
