Description:- Collagen peptides are a versatile source of protein and an important element of healthy nutrition. Their nutritional and physiological properties promote the health of bones and joints, and contribute to beautiful skin. Collagen consists of three polypeptide chains.
Collagen is a type of protein found throughout the body, especially in the muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. In addition to maintaining the health of the connective tissues, collagen also helps promote the turnover of skin cells to help keep skin supple and smooth. Taking a collagen supplement is an easy and effective way to support muscle mass, joint health and skin renewal, which is important because collagen production tends to decline as you start to get older.† Collagen peptides, in particular, are a type of collagen supplement that have been hydrolyzed into smaller units, making it even easier for your body to absorb and use.
- The raw material for collagen peptides – as for gelatin – is collagen protein. Collagen peptides, however, are relatively small molecules with a molecular weight of less than 10,000 g/mol. The peptides comprise at least two and at most 100 amino acids. They are characterized by excellent cold-water solubility and, even in highly concentrated solutions, they do not form a gel.
