COLLAGEN is the most abundant protein in our body and one of the core components of joints, bones, muscles, gums, teeth and skin, as well as other organ structures and tissues.
It is only found in human and animal tissue, which it makes more cohesive, resistant, and flexible. Plants and algae do not contain it. It is a large and complex molecule that forms thick and insoluble fibers that the human digestive system cannot break down, COLLAGEN as such can not be digested by our body.
HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN is a soluble food ingredient made from the native collagen molecule via predigestion or hydrolysis. This means that our body can digest it and use it as a nutrient.
HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN is made from raw materials rich in this protein: food-grade animal skin, bones, joints, thorns and scale
