What Are Gelatin Hydrolysate, Collagen Hydrolysate,
Gelatin & Collagen
Gelatin & Collagen
Gelatin Hydrolysate, Collagen Hydrolysate or Gelatin are all derived from Collagen, which can be extracted from the bones, skins and scales of animals such as fish, bovine or porcine. Collagen mainly consists of protein with special amino acid composition. Collagen is very elastic and it’s vital to the tissues in your body. Gelatin Hydrolysate appears to be a reliable nutrition as shown in clinical studies. Gelatin Hydrolysate is also known as Gelatine Hydrolysate, Collagen Hydrolysate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Gelatin or Collagen Peptides.
Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate is produced by enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen, where the amino acid chains of collagen peptides have been cut into smaller size of 3kD to facilitate absorption in the intestine. Collagen or gelatin in “hydrolysate” or “hydrolyzed” form is therefore rapidly digestible and highly bioavailable to your body systems, and it has no gelling effect. Hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin derived from fish and bovine are more popular comparatively.
Collagen can be categorized into more than 20 types, and each type of collagen identified has its unique function and benefits. Collagen has very big molecular weight of 300kD in its original form; hence, it’s not favorable in terms of absorption.
Gelatin or gelatine, is commonly used in foods, capsules, etc is also produced by hydrolysis of collagenous tissues. Gelatin has molecular weight of 100kD and with gelling effect.
Collagen & Gelatin Hydrolysate Benefits
Collagen or gelatin hydrolysate is gaining its popularity as nutritional supplement due to its scientifically proven health benefits. Clinical trials have established the mechanism on how Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate contributes to healthy bone, flexible and mobile joint, strong muscle, beautiful skin, hair or nail, among others. The benefits of collagen towards health and beauty were actually discovered as early as in the 12th century!
Collagen is a structural protein crucial for the structure and strength of your bone, joint, muscle, skin and body systems.
More than 60 scientific studies have been conducted on the efficacy of Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate in reducing collagen damage and loss in bone, joint, muscle, skin, among others. Erosion of collagen can cause joint pain or arthritis, loss of bone density or osteoporosis, muscle weakness, skin ageing, and so forth. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout are the most common types of arthritis affecting adults whilst children can be affected by juvenile arthritis.
Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate has shown favorable results for enhancing bone density, joint cartilage or connective tissues like ligament and tendon, muscle strength, skin health and elasticity, hair growth or nail. Mainly because collagen or gelatin hydrolysate is rich in special amino acids composition vital to the connective tissues and, its much smaller molecular weight enhances digestibility and bioavailability. Collagen or gelatin hydrolysate can help to stimulate the metabolism of collagen and therefore accelerate the building and repairing of body tissues.
Is Collagen Safe For Long Term Use
Collagen or gelatin hydrolysate has been proven to be safe for long-term use besides the scientifically proven health benefits and efficacy. Clinical studies have suggested that consuming 5g to 10g of Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate a day would provide optimum supplementation.
Practically, collagen or gelatin hydrolysate can be consumed by most people. Opt for collagen or gelatin hydrolysate derived from fish if you can’t take or allergic to bovine, and vice versa. However, you may want to avoid taking collagen or gelatin hydrolysate if pregnant or undergoing dialysis, due to it’s high protein content.
