Collagen is important for the development of the tissues and supports the health of blood vessels. It is being used in various orthopedic, surgical and dental practices, as well as in cosmetic surgery and as a medicine in cases of burns. HAYA LABS Collagen contains hydrolyzed collagen - a modified form of protein, degraded to smaller parts through enzymes. Enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen tissue produces hydrolyzed collagen. This is a process whereby the protein is crushed into small, low molecular weight bioactive peptides that are amino acids in an easily digestible form. They provide an opportunity for the human body to function properly. This helps the protein to be easily transformed into a nourishing element and may assist digestion and absorption. Hydrolyzed collagen is a rich source of nourishing basic amino acids that form collagen’s molecule in the body, including glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, lysine and hydroxylysine. As a hydrolyzed source of these amino groups hydrolyzed collagen supports the health of all collagen containing tissues in the body as cartilage, bones, tendons, and ligaments.
