Collagen Peptides are high in conditionally essential amino acids and contain large proportions of glycine and proline/hydroxyproline. Although they are not regarded as ‘complete’, for supporting certain body tissues such as connective tissue – bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, etc. – they are: they contain a complete and adequate profile of amino acids. These tissues account for approximately 30% of all body protein, thus collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Collagen peptides can therefore be said to support 25-30% of body proteins.

For this reason collagen peptides are important for a whole range of health issues such as maintaining mobility, stable bones, smooth skin, glossy hair and healthy finger nails, and it is essential to take collagen proteins in adequate amounts with our daily food.
