How Hydrolysed Collagen may help you stay more youthful

How Hydrolysed Collagen may help you stay more youthful | Mr Vitamins
If you are like so many people, you are likely working hard to delay the ageing process or at least the signs of ageing. From exercising and eating healthily to detoxifying your body and caring for your skin, there are a number of steps you can take to keep yourself feeling and looking young. Still, you may be overlooking one easy way to achieve all this—consuming hydrolysed collagen.

What is Hydrolysed Collagen?

While its name may not sound edible, hydrolysed collagen’s nutritional powers are undeniable. Similar to gelatine, it provides anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing benefits along with essential amino acids that your body makes naturally, but may be lacking due to your diet. However, unlike the production of gelatine, the production of hydrolysed collagen breaks those amino acids up into smaller units making them more easily absorbed by your body.

Hydrolysed Collagen: Multiple names and one ancient history

Some other common names for hydrolysed collagen include:
  • Hydrolysed gelatine
  • Hydrolysed gelatine collagen
  • Collagen hydrolysate
  • Hydrolysed gelatine
  • Collagen peptides
  • Peptides
Despite its many names, hydrolysed collagen was a staple in the diets of early civilizations who practised nose-to-tail eating in which all of an animal was consumed. Research shows that hydrolysed collagen protects the skin, bones, and joints from ageing. This likely explains why people from early times looked youthful even into middle or old age.

Selecting the best Hydrolysed Collagen

Currently, two types are available: (1) derived from pasture-raised beef and (2) derived from sustainable, wild caught, GMO free, marine sources. Both of these can be blended into foods or drinks, but it is best to start with consuming a small amount and work up to a larger amount. And as always, you can ‘Ask a Naturopath’ for assistance along the way.
