Types of Collagen
Collagen occurs in many places throughout the body.
Collagen types I, II, and III are the most common collagen in humans. These collagens are known as fibrous collagen, because they form long strands. Collagen type I is abundant in the skin, tendon, ligaments, bone, teeth, and in between organs. Collagen type II is abundant in the cartilage and eyes. Collagen type III is abundant in the muscle, blood vessels, and skin. All together, collagen types I, II, and III are 80% to 90% of the collagen in people. Because they are structurally similar, the processes for producing collagen types I, II, and III are in tissues are also similar.
