Collagen is made up of 35% glycine, 11% alanine, and 21% proline and hydroxyproline.
Collagen is only available from animals. Glycine and proline are responsible for the unusual fibrous property of collagen. In ancient cultures skin and bone from animals was consumed to help heal wounds and to strengthen and support bones and joints.
Using collagen as a major dietary protein can help increase bone density and is an easy way to restrict the amino acids that are associated with many of the problems of aging. (Ray Peat)
Collagen Hydrolysate releases factors that promote wound healing and suppress tumor invasiveness. (Pasco, et al., 2003) Glycine itself is one of the factors promoting wound healing and tumor inhibition.

Deficiencies in these nutrients are correlated to having hair, skin and nail disorders/imbalances. So whether you are trying to treat, or to just boost, your hair, skin and nails, these nutrients are what you need to be consuming on a regular basis.
Our hair, skin and nails all require common nutrients in order to be able to grow and heal. These nutrients, are also required to be consumed through our diets, with these extremities often being the last place that receives these nutrients, hence why nutrient deficiencies can be seen in our nails. For example with white spots, brittle nails and split nail beds, thinning and dry hair, as well as our skin, either reacting through producing too much oil or not enough oil.
Underneath the epidermis is the dermis, the layer that is responsible for your skin’s structural integrity and elasticity. It is the layer where you find collagen, elastin and moisture-retaining molecules like hyaluronic acid, which all work together to keep skin firm, smooth and moist. These cells in the dermis generate new collagen while the old collagen is being broken down, a process which happens continuously. However, this natural collagen production slows from your mid-20s onwards, especially if additional risk factors like smoking, excessive exposure to sun and pollution, stress and inadequate nutrition are present. Women face an additional disadvantage with age, because falling oestrogen levels result in thinner, more fragile skin.
