Basic Building Block
Collagen is an indispensable building material for the construction of our bodies, and it’s used to provide shape and structure. There are many types of collagen, and each has different properties. Type I collagen is stronger than steel by weight, type II acts as springs for shock absorption, and type III is used in hollow structures such as the bladder.
Normal dietary collagen needs to be broken down into peptides (by digestive processes) before it can be absorbed in the gut, and this means the type of collagen you eat makes no difference to its nutritional value. The collagen peptides in Collagen Complex are already beneficially ‘broken down’ (hydrolyzed) and are readily available for the body to use.
