Collagen is a structural protein found in the skin and connective tissues throughout the human body. As we age, collagen production becomes less efficient is not repaired as effectively. 

Since its preliminary structure was identified in 1935, the scientific community has identified six main types make up roughly one-third of total body proteins in humans and animals. Hundreds of studies indicate that supplementing  collagen levels supports the healthy function of the areas most affected in the aging process.

As awareness of these deficiencies grew, collagen supplementation became an early focus of dietary supplement and cosmetic industries. Today collagen can be easily added to functional foods, performance drinks, or nutraceutical cosmetics. 

According to Global Market Insights, or Transparency Market Research the worldwide collagen market size was valued at more than $3 billion in 2015 is likely to reach between $5 billion and $9.37 billion by 2023. The two firms cite this new sub-industry's compounded annual growth rate in that eight-year span at 7% to 9.3%, respectively.
