Hydrolyzed collagen: what it is, what it is used for and how to use it


Hydrolyzed collagen is one of the newest and most extensive uses of this important protein. Let’s find out what it is exactly and how it works.

When we talk about hydrolyzed collagen (also called collagen powder or collagen peptides) we mean the common collagen we have all heard of at least once, made in a more assimilable form for the body and therefore able to offer various benefits to the organism and, of course, the skin.

Let’s find out exactly what it is, how it can be taken, to whom it is really useful and why.

What is hydrolyzed collagen and why is it so effective

Collagen is said to be hydrolyzed when it undergoes a process that occurs through hydrolysis.


Process that leads the amino acids present to be broken down into smaller parts and consequently more assimilable by the body. So what is hydrolyzed collagen? A supplement that can also be assimilated by the intestine and therefore manages to act in a more functional and more effective way on the body.

Collagen is generally always of animal origin and mostly bovine. Lately, however, several types of fish extracted from fish have been emerging which seem to have a reparative function, stimulating the body to produce new ones.

What is hydrolyzed collagen used for and what are the main benefits

What is the most common use of hydrolyzed collagen? For the skin naturally. In fact, it manages to make it more elastic and hydrated, removing the effects of aging. It is therefore very useful for preventing wrinkles and for stimulating the production of other important proteins such as fibrin and elastin.

At the same time, this protein helps relieve some joint pain, maintains muscle mass more easily, strengthens hair and nails, is good for the intestine and is even good for the heart. A real panacea for anyone who wants to keep fit for longer.

In summary, therefore, it helps to compensate for the natural reduction that already occurs (albeit very slowly) starting from the age of 25. Taking it helps the body to have it again and in some cases even to produce it. This would therefore make it almost an anti-aging supplement. It is therefore able to both counteract and slow down some processes related to aging such as, for example, the appearance of the first wrinkles.
