To many of us the science of skin is quite baffling. However, there are certain medical terms that may seem intimidating but is essential to discern. Not knowing anatomical functions makes us become ignorant and often times, it ends up nothing near to bliss!
If the term collagen synthesis triggers your curiosity, read more to learn all about it through a simpler yet useful way.

The word collagen and synthesis when separated and defined individually are as below,

col·la·gen :
It is the main supportive protein of cartilage, connective tissue, tendon, skin and bone consisting bundles of tiny reticular fibrils that combines to form white inelastic fibers which represents 30% of total body protein. Collagen can also be referred to as the single most prominent element that holds the body together.

syn·the·sis :
Combination or composition in particular that forms a system.
Typically, collagen is often associated with the skin because it works together with keratin to provide skin durability, elasticity and strength. Therefore, as we age, the formation of collagen degrades and subsequently leads to wrinkles which become visible on the outer layer of the skin.
Without a shadow of doubt, collagen plays an important role in keeping our body in tact and as it slowly decreases due to aging process, it is only advisable to maintain collagen efficiency within the body to not only live healthly but also age gracefully.

On a heftier note, collagen deficiencies can also lead to some genetic diseases known as brittle bone disease. This disease does not only occur due to minimal collagen count but also if its quality is lower than normal.
