Collagen is important: it makes up about a third of your body’s total protein. But collagen normally found in your diet may be difficult for your body to absorb because of its size and structure. Hydrolyzed collagen is easier to absorb, so we’ve combined three types into one formula. This way, you get the maximum benefit out of your daily collagen regimen.
Healthy, beautiful skin. Comfortable joints. All require collagen—a special protein that your body produces less of as you age.

Why We Use Hydrolyzed Collagen: The types of collagen that are most common in your body (types I, II and III) are found in your skin and connective tissue. Each type has slightly different structures that are not easy to digest and absorb in their natural, full-length form. So, we used hydrolyzed collagen (collagen hydrolysate): very small fragments of collagen that are more easily absorbed, which helps you get the most out of our collagen formula.
Collagen types: The vast majority of collagen in your body is type I, II or III.
Type I—this form of collagen makes up more than 90% of your body’s bone mass and 80% of your skin. Type I collagen is also found in your tendons and ligaments.
Type II—about 80% of your body’s cartilage is made up of Type II collagen. In addition to the connective tissue that protects your bones and joints, Type II is found in your spine as well as your vitreous humour: the clear gel that fills the space between the lens and retina of your eye.
Type III—when it comes to your skin, if it’s not Type I collagen, it’s likely type III: about 15% of your total skin is this kind of collagen. Type III is also found in vital organ tissue like your lungs, liver and spleen.
