  • What is collagen?

    MAIN COMPONENT OF THE HUMAN BODY

    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 do not contain it, nor do algae.

    It is also a large and complex molecule which forms such thick, resistant and insoluble fibres that the human digestive system cannot break them down, so COLLAGEN as such it can not be digested, and therefore assimilated, by our body.

    By contrast, ASSIMILABLE OR HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN is a soluble food ingredient made from the fragmentation of the native collagen molecule via a predigestion or hydrolysis. This means that our body can digest it and assimilate it and, therefore, use it as a nutrient.

    HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN is made from raw materials rich in this protein: food grade animal skin, bones, joints, thorns and scales.
