One of the most popular nutritional supplements in the market is collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and provides structure to skin, muscle and bones. Proteins are essential nutrients that fuel our body and are the building blocks of body tissue. It is found in tendons, ligaments, joints, teeth, corneas and almost half of the protein is stored in our skeletal muscle, up to 15% is used for structural tissues such as skin and bones, and the remaining proteins are in tissues and organs including the kidneys and liver. We need protein for our body to function properly.


As we age, our bodies produce less of this essential protein and at a lower quality. To help the body in its production, you need to provide your body with certain nutrients – specifically vitamin C, glycine, proline and copper which can be found naturally in certain foods. But sometimes this is not enough and you need to take supplements.


Collagen peptides have been studied for their potential biological benefits with very promising results. Several scientific studies have demonstrated the bioavailability of collagen peptides after oral administration in animals and humans increases significantly and can have positive results on the body.


Collagen peptides are easily absorbed by the body. In vivo studies have shown that when administered orally, collagen peptides are rapidly absorbed and reach the bloodstream through the intestines making it readily available for various metabolic processes. Other studies have found that collagen supplementation to be effective in treating a wide range of health issues such as:
