WHAT IS COLLAGEN?

Collagen is a protein present in the connective tissue. It is the most abundant protein in the body and the key to skin, bone, & cartilage regeneration.

On average, once you reach about 35 years of age collagen levels start to decrease.

 

  • Collagen is the cement that holds it all together.
  • Collagen is the body’s most important building block and it makes up approximately 30% of the proteins in our bodies.
  • Collagen is the main structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of all our connective tissues, including skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones.

COLLAGEN

Why hydrolyzed?

Collagen in its native state is too large of a molecule to be digested. Measured in Daltons, the molecular weight of Collagen is 300,000. The process of hydrolysis  can help breaking it down to 3000-5000 Daltons, thus becoming easy to be digested & absorbed.
