Collagen peptides are soluble supplements derived from marine or bovine (cows) protein. Peptides are amino acids that make up certain proteins needed by the skin.
These peptides are rich in types I and III collagen and good for skin, bone and joint health. Most peptides are flavorless and dissolve completely in hot or cold liquid.
Collagen peptides contain the same reparative amino acids that are found in the gelatin of bone broth. They are derived from pure collagen.
Created through enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen, collagen peptides are a bioavailable form of collagen and are highly water soluble and nongelling.
Collagen peptides contain higher than 90 percent protein and are made from bovine, porcine or marine sources.
They contain eight of the nine essential amino acids. Because of the high content of specific amino acids, collagen peptides are easily absorbed within the body and improve skin, joint and bone health.
Because of their lower molecular weight, collagen peptides are easily absorbed in the digestive tract, delivering amino acids and high concentrations of specific dipeptides to enhance skin, joint and bone health.
