The Bioavailability of Collagen Peptides

Collagen peptides are derived from pure collagen. Collagen peptides are a functional ingredient used in food and beverages as well as dietary supplements, targeting both bone and joint health along with skin beauty. Furthermore, collagen peptides help speeding up the recovery process for sports enthusiasts and professional athletes alike. Scientific data show that, when used as a dietary supplement, collagen peptides have the ability to stimulate both cell regeneration and growth in the human body. The idea on the biological mechanisms underlying these health benefits continues to take form. In this article, we’re going to look at two pivotal attributes of collagen peptides, directly linked to their health benefits: bioavailability and bioactivity.   What is bioavailability?  The nutrients in our food are broken down into smaller molecules first in...

What is bone health and how can collagen peptides support it?

Collagen peptides are well-known for their positive effects on joint health. But did you know, exciting new research suggests they’re also good for supporting bone health? So in this article we’re going to look at what bone health is, the best way for supporting bone health, and the latest science showing how collagen peptides can help support healthy bones.  What are bones and what is bone health? Bones give the body structure and support, enable movement, and give protection to vital organs. They store calcium that can be released into the bloodstream when the body needs it. Most of the body’s blood cells are produced within the soft center of the bone. Bones are made up of hard and soft tissue components. The tough outer layer is known as...
