Collagen – Making up for 75%-80% of your skin protein, we all need collagen for a healthy and nourished skin. Collagen is a major building block for skin, bones and even your blood vessels.
Peptides – Made up of short strings of amino acids (which are also the building blocks for protein and collagen), it stimulates the production of melanin, a skin pigment, which may improve the skin’s protection against sun damage. Research has suggested that peptides have a beneficial role in slowing down the ageing process, reducing inflammation and destroying microbes.
Collagen alone, in its full-length form, is difficult to break down during digestion and too large to cross the intestinal wall. Collagen peptides, which are derived after breaking down full-length collagen molecules, are generally more bioavailable – they are better absorbed into the bloodstream because they are much shorter chains of amino acids than collagen.
