    $\begingroup$ You should look this up yourself, this is basically asking someone to do a very specific piece of reading and interpret it for you... unless you can provide some of the background info and point out points you don't understand or are interesting for discussion. $\endgroup$ – Teige Feb 9 '15 at 11:27

  • $\begingroup$ this is a very vague question - but one that is easily addressable if you go to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed and search for estrogen and collagen. There are numerous effects that aging and estrogens have on collagen synthesis and metabolism. $\endgroup$ – Vance L Albaugh Nov 25 '15 at 16:04
