What is Collagen and where does it come from?

Collagen is a protein that is found in the connective tissue of animals, including humans. It is the most abundant protein in the human body, making up about 25% to 35% of the total protein content. Collagen is an important component of skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and other connective tissues. It gives these tissues strength and support, and it plays a key role in maintaining the structural integrity of the body.

Collagen is also important for maintaining the elasticity and smoothness of skin, as it helps to form a network of fibres that support the skin’s structure.

Collagen is produced naturally by the body, but it can also be obtained through the consumption of collagen-rich foods or supplements.

Collagen supplements are typically made from animal sources, such as cowhide, chicken, or fish. The collagen is extracted from these sources and processed to create a product that can be consumed as a supplement. Collagen supplements are available in a variety of forms, including pills, powders, and liquids.

Our vegan collagen supplements are made from plant-based sources such as soy, rice, or peas.

These supplements are typically made using a process called hydrolysis, which breaks down the protein into smaller peptides that can be more easily absorbed by the body.
