What Is Collagen?

The Science

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, comprising 1/3 of our total protein. Hard and insoluble, it acts as a scaffold that supports the body’s structure and connects cells. More than 28 types exist, however, three are considered to be the most common in the human body, each serving a unique physiological function.

Type I collagen fibres are the building blocks. They are strong and can be stretched without breaking. Type I helps to form skin, bones, tendons and other connective tissues.

Type II is the major collagen found in cartilage, which acts as the body’s natural shock absorber, connects bones and allows tissue to bear stress. Type II collagen prevents swelling, supports healthy joints and eases muscle pain.

Type III is a fibrillar collagen and the second most prevalent collagen after Type I that supports the structure of muscles, organs and arteries.

Hydrolysed collagen, also known as collagen peptides, is collagen that has been broken down into smaller amino acids, making it easier for the body to absorb. It is rich in proline, hydroxyproline, glycine, glutamic acid and alanine. Daily consumption of hydrolysed collagen supplies the body with these important amino acids, which the body uses to build new collagen fibres, repair weakened collagen structures and enable restorative processes to occur.

*Hydrolysed collagen is not a treatment or cure for diseases.
