Collagen (collagen) is the most common protein in the human body, 25%~33%, which covers the total body's protein, is the main constituent of skin and tissues, such as skin, bone, cartilage, ligament, cornea, various inner membranes, fascia, etc. Therefore, the collagen protein to the human body's health and beauty play a pivotal role, with firming skin wrinkle, moisturizing moisture, restore elasticity, breast upright, flexible joints, prevent pregnancy pattern and so on.Collagen

is a kind of substance that is in the molecular structure between amino acids and proteins. 

Two amino acids are linked to each other as peptides, the chain of peptide bonds linked to the peptide chain, according to the number of amino acids that make up the peptide chain, if two amino acids constitute peptide called "two peptide" (such as carnosine), three amino acids constitute a peptide called "three peptide" (such as glutathione), four amino acids constitute the peptide called "four peptide", and so on, five peptide , six peptide, seven peptide ... Ten peptide ... XV peptide ... ,。 Collagen is a kind of protein family.Collagen  At least 30 genes encoding the collagen chain have been found. Can form more than 16 kinds of collagen molecules. According to their distribution and functional characteristics in vivo. At present, collagen is divided into interstitial collagen, basement membrane collagen and extracellular collagen, and interstitial collagen molecule is the most part of the whole body collagen.Collagen

including I, Ⅱ, Ⅲ type collagen molecule, mainly distributes in the skin, the tendon, and so on the tissue, in which the collagen protein Ⅱ type is produced by the chondrocytes, the basement membrane collagen protein usually refers to the Ⅳ type collagen. It is mainly distributed in the basement membrane, and the collagen protein of the cells is usually the V-type. abound in connective tissue.Collagen
