What is hydrolyzed collagen and how is it different from collagen?
What exactly is hydrolyzed collagen? Well, it's like collagen with a sophisticated makeover! We're all well-acquainted with collagen, one of the most prominent proteins in the human body. It can be found practically everywhere, from the skin, bones, muscles, blood vessels, tendons, to the joints. These areas serve as collagen's primary strongholds, constituting approximately one-third of the body's total protein content.
However, hydrolyzed collagen takes collagen to a whole new level by undergoing a secondary process called hydrolysis, which enzymatically breaks it down into smaller peptide segments. While hydrolyzed collagen retains the same beneficial properties as regular collagen, it assumes a different form. Now, you might be wondering, why go through the trouble of subjecting collagen to this additional processing step? Well, there's a logical and scientific reason for it!
Through the process of hydrolysis, the molecular weight of collagen decreases, while the number of peptide segments significantly increases. This transformation results in hydrolyzed collagen products that are more soluble and easily absorbed by the body. The smaller peptide segments, known as collagen peptides, have demonstrated excellent bioavailability, meaning they are efficiently absorbed and utilized by our bodies. This enhanced solubility and bioavailability make hydrolyzed collagen an ideal choice for various applications in dietary supplements, cosmetics, and medical fields.
