What are Collagen Peptides?
Collagen Peptides is hydrolyzed form of collagen. After hydrolysis, the powder loses its gelling ability, which makes it soluble in a water medium. It differs from other protein powders as it contains much higher concentrations of the amino acids glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline in much higher concentrations. Many studies indicate that collagen peptides have a preventative and regenerative effect on bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, skin, hair, and nails (1).
May Improve Gastrointestinal Function
Collagen peptides may help your body naturally increase the integrity of the epithelial lining and tight junctions of the gastrointestinal barrier membrane. Deficiencies in this protective, yet delicate, lining may give rise to a ‘leaky gut’ thus promoting the systemic absorption of harmful bacteria and endotoxins. Collagen peptides help your body to naturally increase the integrity of these tight junctions by protecting and healing this surface barrier.
In addition, collagen peptides may increase stomach acid production. Stomach acid is key in the absorption of essential nutrients such as Vitamin B12 and iron. Once the production of stomach acid is normalized, nutrient absorption is restored and the body begins to regain vitality.
Influences Inflammation and Joint Health
Because collagen is required for proper tissue integrity, a deficiency in it results in inflammation and pain. Supplementing the diet with collagen has demonstrated a reduction in both localized and systemic inflammatory processes, restoring joint and tissue health.
