Collagen is a special type of protein that accounts for as much as 30% of the body’s total protein. In particular, it’s a primary structural component of connective tissue. The amino acid composition of dietary collagens are very similar to those in human collagens, making dietary collagen peptides ideal for supporting normal body collagen turnover and renewal.

Many individuals—the elderly in particular—do not consume adequate protein. Even among those with a higher protein intake, the richest sources of collagen—animal skins, bone broth, and tendons — are not typically part of the modern Western diet. Optimized Collagen Peptides can be incorporated into shakes, smoothies, and other foods and beverages, making it a convenient way to ensure adequate intake of collagen’s unique amino acids.
synergistic formulation contains three research-proven collagen peptide blends derived from dietary collagen protein and produced with proprietary hydrolyzation technologies in order to optimize their beneficial properties.
Compared to other proteins, collagen has a unique amino acid composition and a distinct role in human anatomy. Collagen proteins are rich in the modified amino acid hydroxyproline (approx. 12%), and they have an unusually high content of glycine and proline (approx. 22% and 13%, respectively). While other dietary proteins can provide these, collagen is a more concentrated source, and as such, may be a more effective choice when the clinical goal is related to collagen as a structural protein, such as in supporting the strength of bone, tendons and cartilage, as well as the health and appearance of skin.*
Optimized Collagen Peptides is a convenient way to ensure adequate intake of collagen’s unique amino acids, and to titrate to higher doses for those who may need greater amounts, such as athletes, aging individuals, those recovering from injury, and menopausal women not on HRT.*
