What is Collagen?
Collagen is the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues and gives support to connect parts of the body together. There is over thirty different types of collagen found within the body. More than 80% of the skin is made up from collagen. It is found in tendons, ligaments, and cartilage around joints and also the blood vessels.
In those who have EDS lack collagen and connective tissues can become weaker, that leads to things like fragile and stretchy skin, unstable and loose joints, fragile blood vessels and body tissue.
