About collagen peptides

Collagen is a protein found in animals and it is made up of amino acids. Since ancient times, collagen has been known to benefit human health. For centuries, people have been consuming collagen in the form of bone broth to support their joint and bone health and in more recent times, to promote skin beauty.1

Collagen peptides are collagen in its hydrolyzed form. The much smaller and easily digestible collagen peptides are produced by controlled enzymatic hydrolysis. The solubility, absorption and digestibility are very different between collagen and collagen peptides.
