COLLAGEN 101

Collagen is a fibrous protein found in the body's connective tissues, providing structure and support to skin, bones, tendons, and ligaments.

 

It plays a crucial role in maintaining skin elasticity, joint health, and overall tissue integrity. It is one of the key ingredients to holistic healthy living!

What is Multi-Collagen

Multi-collagen supplements typically contain a combination of five collagen types I, II, III, V, and X. Each type of collagen has unique properties and is derived from different sources.

HLP's takes a holistic approach to Healthy Living and it starts with premium multi-collagen peptide supplements.

Type I Collagen: 

This is the most abundant type of collagen in the human body and is primarily found in the skin, bones, tendons, and ligaments. It provides structure and support to tissues.

HOW IS OUR COLLAGEN MADE

The process of making multi collagen supplements involves several steps:

1. Source Selection

Collagen can be derived from various sources, including bovine (cattle), porcine (pigs), chicken, fish, or even plant-based sources like algae. Each source has its own characteristics and may contain different types of collagen.

2. Extraction

Collagen is typically extracted from the connective tissues of animals, such as skin, bones, and cartilage. This process involves breaking down the tissues and extracting the collagen through methods like enzymatic hydrolysis or acid treatment.

3. Purification

After extraction, the collagen is purified to remove any impurities, such as fats, proteins, and minerals. This helps to isolate the collagen proteins and improve the quality of the final product.

4. Hydrolysis

Collagen is a large protein molecule, so it needs to be broken down into smaller peptides to be more easily absorbed by the body. This is often achieved through hydrolysis, where enzymes or acids are used to break the collagen down into smaller peptides.

5. Blending

Once the collagen peptides are obtained, they can be blended together in the desired proportions to create a multi-collagen supplement. This allows for a combination of different collagen types, providing a broader range of benefits.

6. Formulation

Collagen supplements may also contain other ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, or flavorings, to enhance their effectiveness or improve taste.

7. Packaging

The final step involves packaging the collagen supplement into capsules, tablets, or powders for easy consumption.
