The Facts About Collagen
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and a key constituent of skin, joints, bones, blood vessels, organs and more. The word “collagen” is derived from kolla, the Greek word for glue. Collagen is literally the substance that binds us together. It forms an extensive net-like framework throughout the inner body and imparts shape and structural strength to virtually every tissue.
Collagen is a protein that is highly prized because of its unique 18 amino acids that profiles an abundance of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. In fact, collagen is the only known source of hydroxyproline, which is believed to help stimulate the body’s own collagen production*.
Replenishing This Essential Protein
What Can Collagen Do For Me?
What is Hydrolyzed Collagen?
Hydrolyzed collagen is a type of protein that is “pre-digested” or broken down into smaller, sized peptides for enhanced absorption into the body. We use a gentle, cold enzyme process to create fully hydrolyzed collagen (< 5,000 Daltons).
How Does Age Affect Collagen?
While bountiful in youth, the collagen content of the body gradually decreases with age, leading to thinner, weaker, less resilient tissues over time. This includes visible changes in the skin: thinning, dryness, wrinkles and fine lines.
