Each of our capsules contain 600mg of Naticol® Hydrolysed Collagen peptide, produced by enzymatic hydrolysis. It is a mixture of peptides with spectrum range of molecular weights including dipeptides and tripeptide - the low molecular weight grades allow absorption into the bloodstream after digestion.
Collagen is responsible for healthy skin and bones as well as being the main component of cartilage. Unless collagen molecules have been hydrolysed, they are simply too big to be absorbed when ingested, and thus never reach the dermis, which is the underlying layer of the skin where collagen resides. Swiss BioEnergetics Hydrolysed Collagen absorbs quickly into the body and is allowed to make its way to the areas it is needed most.
Collagen is a natural skeletal protein and is one of the body's most abundant components, accounting for nearly 80% of the body's skin, muscles and connective tissue. Depletion of collagen in the skin is the main reason for the formation of lines and wrinkles.

It is thought that from the age of 25, your body loses collagen at a rate of 1.5% per annum, so by the age of 35, your body will have lost 15% and by 45, 30%. This is when you really start to notice a change in your skin's elasticity and texture. Proper collagen balance in the body is therefore highly desirable, and crucial, if your looks and facial structure are to be maintained.
A 2012 study by Guillerminet F et al indicates that supplementation with hydrolysed collagen can reduce bone loss whilst supporting healthy bone mineral density.
Collagen Type 1 is found throughout the body except in cartilaginous tissues, making it the most abundant form collagen of the human body. As Type 1 collagen is responsible for healthy skin and bones it is by far the most abundant type of collagen in the body - making up over 90%. Typically type 1 collagen is used to support healthy, youthful skin.
Why Hydrolysed Marine Collagen?
The bioavailability of a collagen supplement, or the percentage of the substance that is actually absorbed into your body when ingested, is critical to the effectiveness of the supplement. Bioavailability largely determines the efficacy of any nutrient you ingest.
The problem with collagen molecules is that they are huge, so unless they’ve been hydrolysed, they are simply too big to be absorbed when ingested, and thus never reach the dermis, which is the underlying layer of the skin where collagen resides. Swiss BioEnergetics Hydrolysed collagen absorbs quickly into the body and is allowed to make it's away to the areas it is need most.
