Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, making up most of the body's connective tissues and being the primary component of tendons, ligaments and skin. It is also a major component of the cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the digestive tract and spinal discs.

Collagen is formed of a wound triple helix forming very long, strong strands.
