Pure Hydrolyzed Collagen

Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix in the various connective tissues in the body. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen consists of amino acids bound together to form a triple helix of elongated fibrils known as a collagen helix. It is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and skin.

Beautiful skin on the outside needs a healthy foundation on the inside.

Collagen Distribution

Different cells in our body are responsible for the production of collagen.

Skin

Collagen constitutes 70% of the skin's dry mass content. A key component of the skin’s structure, collagen fibers provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture.

Tendons

Tendons are strong fibrous connective tissues that connect muscles to bones. During muscle contraction the tendons' role is to transmit forces and withstand tension. Tendons contain 85% collagen type 1 and also proteoglycans.

Joint Cartilage

Joint cartilage is made up of cellular building blocks (chondrocytes), which produce an extracellular matrix, consisting of collagen and proteoglycans (mainly aggrecan). Collagen fibers make up 70% of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength, while proteoglycans serve as lubricant to the joint.

Bones

Representing around 90% of organic bone mass, collagen provides the structural framework on which calcium and other minerals are anchored. Collagen fibers also provide bone flexibility.
