Collagen Peptides for Skin & Joints
Collagen plays a pivotal role in the structure of bones, joints and skin. But because collagen is a large molecule, it’s harder for
your body to digest and absorb. Hydrolyzed collagen consists of smaller pieces of collagen (called collagen peptides).
Together, they have the same type and amount of amino acids as a full collagen molecule but are easier for your body to
digest and for your cells to assimilate. These amino acids can then be used to form collagen and elastin: two major
components of healthy skin and connective tissue.
The vast majority of collagen in your body is type I, II or III.
Collagen Peptides for Skin & Joints
Your body needs collagen for your skin, joints, eyes and more—but collagen production decreases as
you age. This easily mixable, easily digestible collagen supplement provides three different types of

Collagen is important: it makes up about a third of your body’s total protein. But collagen normally found in your diet may be
difficult for your body to absorb because of its size and structure. Hydrolyzed collagen is easier to absorb, so we’ve combined
three types into one formula. This way, you get the maximum benefit out of your daily collagen regimen.
Healthy, beautiful skin. Comfortable joints. All require collagen—a special protein that your body
produces less of as you age.

Why We Use Hydrolyzed Collagen
The types of collagen that are most common in your body (types I, II and III) are found in your skin and
connective tissue. Each type has slightly different structures that are not easy to digest and absorb in their
natural, full-length form. So, we used hydrolyzed collagen (collagen hydrolysate): very small fragments of
collagen that are more easily absorbed, which helps you get the most out of our collagen formula.
Type I—this form of collagen makes up more than 90% of your body’s bone mass and 80% of your skin. Type I collagen
is also found in your tendons and ligaments.
Type II—about 80% of your body’s cartilage is made up of Type II collagen. In addition to the connective tissue that
protects your bones and joints, Type II is found in your spine as well as your vitreous humour: the clear gel that fills the
space between the lens and retina of your eye.
Type III—when it comes to your skin, if it’s not Type I collagen, it’s likely type III: about 15% of your total skin is this kind
of collagen. Type III is also found in vital organ tissue like your lungs, liver and spleen.
Collagen hydrolysate enhances collagen production
We use collagen hydrolysate (which provides collagen peptides) because it can pass the mucosal barrier in your digestive
system, without needing to be broken down into smaller pieces. And that’s not all:
Collagen hydrolysate provides free amino acids that contribute to collagen and elastin synthesis.
The collagen peptides bind to fibroblasts, the major cells responsible for collagen production, and activate them, which
results in the production of even more collagen.
Collagen and joint comfort
Hydrolyzed collagen can stimulate collagen production and help promote joint comfort. A six-month, randomized study of 250
subjects showed that daily intake of collagen hydrolysate significantly promoted knee comfort.
Collagen and skin elasticity
Collagen plays a key role in your skin’s structure. It’s integrated with elastin, the protein that gives skin its flexibility and
elasticity—together they keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant. A double-blind study of 69 women (from ages 35 to 55),
showed significant improvement in skin elasticity after eight weeks of subjects taking daily hydrolyzed collagen when
compared to the placebo group.
