The vast majority of collagen in your body is type I, II or III.
- Type I—this form of collagen makes up more than 90%
of your body’s bone mass and 80% of your skin. Type I collagen is also
found in your tendons and ligaments.
- Type II—about 80% of your body’s cartilage is made
up of Type II collagen. In addition to the connective tissue that
protects your bones and joints, Type II is found in your spine as well
as your vitreous humour: the clear gel that fills the space between the lens and retina of your eye.
- Type III—when it comes to your skin, if it’s not
Type I collagen, it’s likely type III: about 15% of your total skin is
this kind of collagen. Type III is also found in vital organ tissue like
your lungs, liver and spleen.
Collagen hydrolysate enhances collagen production
We use collagen hydrolysate (which provides collagen peptides)
because it can pass the mucosal barrier in your digestive system,
without needing to be broken down into smaller pieces. And that’s not
- Collagen hydrolysate provides free amino acids that contribute to collagen and elastin synthesis.1
- The collagen peptides bind to fibroblasts, the major cells
responsible for collagen production, and activate them, which results in
the production of even more collagen.2
Collagen and joint comfort
Hydrolyzed collagen can stimulate collagen production and help
promote joint comfort. A six-month, randomized study of 250 subjects
showed that daily intake of collagen hydrolysate significantly promoted
Collagen and skin elasticity
Collagen plays a key role in your skin’s structure. It’s integrated
with elastin, the protein that gives skin its flexibility and
elasticity—together they keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant. A
double-blind study of 69 women (from ages 35 to 55), showed significant
improvement in skin elasticity after eight weeks of subjects taking
daily hydrolyzed collagen when compared to the placebo group.4
