Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It is the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones.
Collagen supplements are typically hydrolysate collagen or hydrolyzed collagen which is a processed form of collagen making it easier for the body to absorb. Consuming collagen may have a variety of health benefits, from relieving joint pain to improving skin health as documented by numerous studies addressing collagen’s efficacy in reducing collagen damage and loss, joint pain and erosion (osteoarthritis), bone density loss (osteoporosis) and skin ageing. Studies have show that hydrolyzed collagen stimulates collagenic tissue regeneration by increasing not only collagen synthesis but minor components (glycosaminoglycans and hyaluronic acid) synthesis as well. Clinical studies have also show that continual hydrolyzed collagen supplementation helps to reduce and prevent joint pain, bone density loss and skin ageing. These results indicate the possible viability of hydrolyzed collagen for a long-term use in bone and joint degenerative diseases and in aid against skin ageing. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26267777
