Description

Collagen Peptides is a pure protein and the most abundant protein in the human body. It is absorbed quickly by the body and has all the benefits of gelatin, without gelling. While gelatin and collagen have similar benefits, collagen is easier for some people to digest.

Collagen Peptides has a higher amount of certain amino acids than more common protein sources, and can help balance your diet by supplying you with the uncommon amino acids.

Raw collagen is the primary protein that makes up most of the connective tissues in the body, such as ligaments, tendons, muscles, joints, skin and bones. When you cook collagen, as when you simmer bones to make broth, you are turning the collagen from the bones into gelatin. Gelatin is the reason a good broth will gel to a solid when it cools. Gelatin can be even further broken down into finer protein particles called collagen hydrolysate, also known as hydrolyzed collagen or collagen peptides. Both gelatin and hydrolysated collagen have the same amino acid profile and protein content to benefit from, but come in different structures with different application benefits. Some people feel that collagen hydolysate is easier to digest because of its smaller protein particle make up. However, it will not gel like gelatin so it doesn’t have the same cooking applications. Another difference is that collagen hydrolysate will dissolve in cold or hot liquids, unlike gelatin that will only dissolve in hot liquid.

You can add collagen hydrolysate to pretty much anything as a way to consume, where gelatin has a bit more specific applications due to the gel like texture it creates. Some people find the texture of gelatin undesirable when added to their smoothies or tea for instance, but for making pudding, gummy candy, sauces, soups, or homemade jello-type desserts, it’s gelicious!

Because collagen is the main protein that makes up most of the connective tissue in our body, and we don’t produce as much collagen as we get older, there is evidence that consuming it can benefit our joints, bones, skin and other connective tissues. As a result, there are many collagen supplements on the market today. Aside from its awesome amino acid content (like proline and glycine), and hefty amount of protein, gelatin and collagen may also have intestinal healing effects. This is why the doctor-developed-diet called GAPS, which is used to heal ailments such as “leaky gut”, incorporates lots of bone broth. Gelatin is also suggested to have been one of the first foods used medicinally in China because it is shown to be great for people with food allergies or sensitivities. For athletic people looking for a post workout protein boost, collagen and gelatin are a great after workout option that will not only give a powerful dose of instant protein but can also aid in the repair and recovery of the muscles and connective tissues.

Directions

Mix Gelicious Collagen in drinks, shakes, smoothies, ice cream, or add one tablespoon to your favorite recipe for an anti-inflammatory protein boost. For best results, use Gelicious Collagen with other complete proteins such as meat or vegetables.
