Collagen is probably the most abundant protein in the kingdom of animals. There are at least 16 different types of collagen, however types I, II and III are the most common. Type I collagen provides structure and elasticity to the skin, hair and nails, as well as to tendons, bones, teeth and organs. The term hydrolyzed peptides refers to the smaller parts of the collagen’s protein chain, produced through a natural process called hydrolysis.
In that way we ensure optimal absorption and utilization by the skin, hair and nails. Moerover, when these peptides are obtained from fish (marine) collagen the absorption, bioavailability and digestion is best, while they are free of side effects caused by other animal collagens such as the rise in cholesterol.
