Hydrolyzed Collagen is the leading form of collagen which is a chemically broken up version of the big protein molecule, collagen. It is often derived from fish or bovine sources and works as a nice moisturizer and humectant that helps the skin to hold onto water.
To understand a bit more what Hydrolyzed Collagen is, you have to know that proteins are large chains of amino acids connected with so-called peptide bonds. These bonds can be broken up when a water molecule is added and the resulting thing is a mix of shorter length amino acids, also called peptides. So Hydrolyzed Collagen is not really collagen, it is rather an undefined and varying mix of largish peptides.
Hydrolyzed Collagen peptides are more easily absorbed by the body and contain three times higher amounts of amino acids which are essential for the synthesis of new collagen. They also strengthen the stability of collagen’s structure in the organism.
Hydrolyzed Collagen possesses a very high percentage of oral absorption. (Studies have shown that the bioavailability of HC peptides is more than 90%
What is Collagen? It is the most abundant protein of the human body for tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilages, and skin. Collagen is composed of 30% of the total body proteins; it also constitutes 75% of the protein that makes up skin. It promotes lean muscle mass, skin health, increased energy, and helps joint symptoms.
