Collagen is a substance with long, continuous, and unbranched chains of amino acids that is synthesized by fibroblast cells. For instance, it is a protein, which is compromising about one third of total protein in human and major part (72%) of the skin and connective tissue, including to organic substance of the bone (80% of the bone is collagen) and the teeth. It's a fiber that strong against pressure.
In the vaginal tissue, the collagen receptor will increase its exposure to that area when there is an estrogenic or steroid activity. As the results, the level of collagen increases making it more tight, including new skin cells in the layer (vaginal walls) that makes it thicker and youthful. The same thing happened to the vaginal muscle. When there is an estrogenic activity in the vaginal muscle and pelvic muscles, it will stimulate the production of fiber making the mass of these muscles increase, resulting better strength of contraction.
Along with collagen production due to estrogenic activities, it also stimulates the production of elastin. Elastin plays a role for youthful skin by helping the skin return to its original position and resume their shape after stretching or contracting. It is an elastic fiber consisted of protein in the connective tissue and many tissue in the body. The elasticity of this protein is associated with hydrophobic residues, and its formation involving multiple different proteins and enzymes.
The Connection Between Collagen and Elastin for Vaginal Tightening and Rejuvenation
In short, collagen is an important protein to strengthen and rejuvenate the tissue and skin cells while elastin is an important protein for its elasticity.
In terms of vaginal tightening and rejuvenation, both of these proteins are important to support the process and the role of estrogen is primarily involved. Since estrogen deficiency is nature as we age and over imbalance hormonal events (menstruation, breastfeeding, illnesses, side effect of medications or therapies, and unhealthy lifestyles), therefore, maintaining estrogen levels is a must if you want to keep your genital organs maintained.
Generally, the body start to produce less estrogen at age 30 and totally stop at menopause period. During this time-frame, the genital organs, skin, and tissue will start to degrade at some points. You may experience incidences of vaginal dryness, painful sex, odor, discharge, and something with declined collagen and elastin levels on the tissue of vaginal walls (loose vagina) or weakened pelvic floor muscles.
Therefore, if you can increase the production of collagen and elastin on the tissue, then the tightness of your vagina will be improved accordingly, as well as other above benefits. Since this is associated with declined estrogen levels, you can outsmart it with dietary intervention by consuming foods that contains phytoestrogens such as soybeans, sesame seeds, oats, barleys, beans, pomegranates, carrots and some others. Using herbs with strong phytoestrogens profile due to chemical composition forming their isoflavones (the highest form of phytoestrogens) such as Oak Gall, Witch Hazel, Pueraria Mirifica, Black Cohosh, or Fenugreek, are an option if you want to augment your effort and want to make your vagina tighter almost instantly with long-term benefits, especially using Oak Gall and Witch Hazel. However, the dietary intervention above can also rejuvenate your genital organs and overcome atrophic symptoms if you consume it regularly. It's about time-frame and effectiveness.
