Discovering Collagen Hydrolysate: More Than Just Anti-Aging

Understanding Hydrolysed Collagen Supplements

In order to understand what hydrolysed collagen supplements can do for you, we must first understand collagen.

Collagen is our most abundant protein, accounting for 30% of the body’s natural protein content.

Collagen provides strength, structure and support to our organs, blood vessels, and intestinal lining, as well as our skin, bones and other connective tissues. As we age, our collagen production naturally declines, which is why our skin wrinkles and our bones and muscles weaken.

That’s where hydrolysed collagen comes in.

Also known as hydrolysed collagen peptides, this supplement is made up of 19 amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Hydrolysed collagen is a very pure, high protein product that is also carbohydrate and fat-free.

Collagen hydrolysate is formed when whole collagen proteins are broken down into smaller particles through hydrolysis. This makes it easier for the body to use, digest and absorb the supplement, prompting the natural collagen stores to increase and produce more collagen themselves.

There are various forms of hydrolysed collagen currently available. Because of its anti-aging properties, this supplement is often used in skincare products like night creams, serums and moisturisers.

However, the most effective way to increase your body’s natural collagen stores is through ingestible products, such as our range of Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides.

We’ve developed an exciting variety of delicious flavours to perfectly complement your favourite smoothies, so we’ve got something for everyone to enjoy.

Collagen hydrolysate generally doesn’t have any unpleasant side effects. It’s perfectly safe to consume and has been widely tolerated when dosed appropriately.

The Health Benefits: Collagen Hydrolysate vs Whey Protein

With an abundance of protein powders available, it can be hard to find the one that will suit your needs best. So, let’s compare the benefits of collagen hydrolysate with one of the most popular protein powders on the market; whey protein.

When taken consistently and at the recommended dose, the benefits of collagen hydrolysate are clear.

One of the main reasons people have incorporated it into their daily routines is because it can reduce signs of ageing. More specifically, hydrolysed collagen improves skin texture, hydration, elasticity and firmness for a youthful glow. This supplement also promotes healthy hair and skeletal systems.

Being easily digestible, collagen hydrolysates attach to calcium ions, which means they can assist with mineral deficiencies.

In addition, this supplement can reduce the painful symptoms of osteoarthritis, particularly in the knee and hip.

Hydrolysed collagen is ultimately a type of protein, so it can also help with muscle growth.

However, it can also aid weight loss efforts. As you can see, this versatile supplement can be taken to help you achieve a variety of health and fitness goals.

On the other hand, whey is also a terrific source of protein.

Whey is created during the cheese-making process; it is essentially the liquid that splits away from the milk as the cheese is formed.

It contains the ultimate combination of essential amino acids and can be absorbed quickly by the body.

Like collagen, whey protein can assist you with your weight loss goals. It does this by helping to suppress your appetite, boosting metabolism and can help you maintain muscle.

While most proteins are known to be filling, whey protein holds superior status when it comes to satiation. This means it will keep you fuller for longer.

Whey protein has high levels of leucine, which is the amino acid that promotes muscle growth. That’s why it’s renowned for helping you increase muscle mass, improve strength and prevent the muscle loss involved with ageing.

Whey protein also increases the body’s glutathione levels, which lowers oxidative stress. Strengthening your antioxidant defences, this reduces the risk of certain chronic diseases.

So, we can see that whey protein and collagen hydrolysate are both great protein powders for their own reasons.

Now that you’re across the differences between the two, you’ll be tasked with deciding which supplement can best support your goals.
