A true superfood: Our grass fed hydrolyzed collagen is 90% protein
This type of collagen and the healing qualities it provides us is very similar to the collagen we have in our own body. Our grass fed hydrolyzed collagen tested at 90% protein provides us with both type I and type III collagen which is the major component in skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes and blood vessels.
Hydrolyzed collagen is a true superstar food which offers a highly nourishing level of specific collagen peptides known for their ability to rebuild and repair. One of the more common reasons collagen is used to nourish and support a healthy body is that it may support joint, tendon and cartilage health. Many of the popular supplements on the market today for joint health like glucosamine, chondroitin and msm are all naturally contained within the cartilage and bones of animals.
Support joint, tendon and cartilage health
Also, the amino acids which may help to form collagen in the human body like glycine, proline, and lysine are found in highly nourishing amounts in hydrolyzed collagen. One specific study showed that a diet rich in glycine improved both biochemical and biomechanical properties following inflammation of the achilles tendon. It is thought that glycine has positive effects against toxicity and may support a healthy inflammation response. Glycine may restructure the collagen molecules faster due to its possible broad effects on the inflammation process. This study had 3 groups (control, inflammatory group and glycine+inflammatory group). Higher concentrations of hydroxyproline and glycosaminoglycans were found in the glycine inflammation group. The biomechanical results indicated that the tendon was more resistant to loading to rupture upon treatment with a glycine diet in that specific group. The conclusion was drawn that “Glycine induced the synthesis of important components of the tendon”.
Another study (double blind, placebo controlled) done at Penn state university that was conducted for 24 weeks showing the possible joint health benefits of ingesting 10 grams of collagen daily in active athletes. This study had 147 subjects (72 men and 75 women) where one group received a formula with 10 grams of collagen and the other a xanthan. The study was looking at pain, mobility and inflammation. At the completion of the study 5 parameters (joint pain while walking, at rest, standing, carrying objects, and lifting) showed significant changes with the group that took the collagen. The results of this study have implications for the use of collagen to support joint health and possibly reduce the risk of joint deterioration in a high-risk group. The results also suggest that athletes consuming collagen can also prevent and support specific parameters (like pain) that may have a direct effect on the athlete’s performance.
A rich source of amino acids for possible tissue repair and rebuild
Finally, because of collagen’s unique amino acid profile this food is a wonderful way to possibly support gut health. The 18 amino acids found in collagen may help to support and repair an unhealthy gut lining. Amino acids may increase gastric acid secretion which in turn may help those with reflux issues. The amino acids lysine and proline have been shown to also possibly support and protect the stomach lining from injury. Finally the superstar amino acid glutamine has been shown in many studies for its ability to possibly improve digestion and heal the gut. This amino acid is a staple for those who have been diagnosed with a condition known as “leaky gut”. Therefore the implications for its use in supporting a healthy immune and allergy response shows great potential.
