What is collagen and what is the function of it?
Collagen is a natural protein in the body that is found in our bones, skin and connective tissues, giving our bodies structure, firmness and support. It is what gives us a youthful complexion, and healthy skin, hair, nails and joints.
What are collagen peptides?
Normal collagen has a molecular weight of ~300,000 Daltons, which makes it difficult for our bodies to absorb, while collagen peptides typically have a molecular weight of 2,000 - 5,000 Daltons. The collagen peptides in Avalon Japanese Fish Collagen has a molecular weight lower than 3,000 Daltons, which allows them to be fully utilized by our bodies.
What is the difference between fish and bovine collagen?
