Collagen is the body’s most important building block and it makes up approximately 30% of the proteins in our bodies. Collagen is the key structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of all our connective tissues, including skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones. In essence, collagen is strong and flexible and is the ‘glue’ that holds everything together. It strengthens various body structures as well the integrity of our skin. There are many different types of collagen in our body, but 80 to 90 percent of them belong to Type I, II or III, with the majority being Type I collagen. Type I collagen fibrils have enormous tensile strength. This means they can be stretched without being broken.
Collagen is extracted from high quality fish scale, by using modern biological technology, to production new nutrition food products. Collagen is high pure white powder, it keeps all the nutrition of fish scale raw material, and contains no additive agent. Rongsheng biotech is a professional collagen manufacturer.The unique moisturizing characteristics of collagen can keep skin moisturize,bright, clean and whippy. Outside, collagen can prevent the damage caused by exposure to the sun, inside, collagen can prevent the free radicals to harm the skin.
Collagen peptides are small bioactive peptides obtained by enzymatically hydrolysis of collagen, in other words, the breaking down of the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides. Hydrolysis reduces collagen protein fibrils of about 300 – 400kDa into smaller peptides with a molecular weight of lower than 5000Da. Collagen peptides are also known as hydrolyzed collagen or collagen hydrolysate.
Collagen peptides are highly bioavailable. They act as building blocks, renewing bodily tissues, such as skin, bones and joints. It has been proposed that collagen peptides may act as a messenger to the cells and trigger the synthesis and reorganization of new collagen fibers, thereby supporting our tissue structure. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated collagen peptides’ health benefits. Key areas of benefit include healthy aging, joint and bone health, sports nutrition and skin beauty. Collagen peptides are cold water-soluble and highly bioavailable and bioactive. This makes them a better option for functional foods and beverages and dietary supplements than gelatin. Collagen peptides have a molecular weight of less than 5000Da.

Marine Codfish Collagen Benefits & Applicaitons
The use of 95% hydrolysed protein/collagen in the nutraceutical industry is widespread. it is an excellent and economical source of multiple amino acids. Gelatin is the foundation of many nutritional and arthritis/joint care formulas. It is also widely used for nutritional bars and protein drinks.
