TO PUT IT SIMPLY: YES, ALL COLLAGEN IS HYDROLYSED … BUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF HYDROLYSATION.
A hydrolysed collagen is better known as Collagen Peptides but can also be referred to as Collagen Hydrolysate. Peptides are short chains of the amino acids present in every cell in your body and the length of those chains will help determine what they do. They are formed by the process of hydrolysis. In this process, protein (more specifically, its amino acids) has been broken down into smaller units, making collagen more easily digestible for humans because we wouldn’t be able to absorb the nutrients if we just ate cow hides or bones.
Fully hydrolysed collagen (key word here being “fully”) is soluble in both cold and hot liquids. Unflavoured and 100% pure, they are easy to mix into smoothies, fresh fruit juice, or even water. As we know, natural collagen production begins to decline as we grow older, which is why some people prefer to up their collagen intake with our products, in an effort to continue to help the promotion of healthy hair, skin, nails and bones.
