Collagen is the most abundant protein in the animal world which accounts for 30% of total protein content in the human body. Collagen is a key constituent of all the connective tissues. It is found in joints, bones, skin, hair, etc. This protein helps the skin to move, stretch and rebound into shape. It is present throughout the body and keeps the cells together. Without collagen the body would fall apart into pieces.
Thus, the correct answer is option C.
