Hydrolyzed collagen is a natural form of collagen that is often used for culinary purposes, as it is a key ingredient in the formation of gelatine. Collagen is actually a form of protein which is derived from the cartilage and bones of animals, usually from bovine creatures. It is comprised of tiny amino acids, which actually assist with the formation of new collagen within the human body. Hydrolyzed collagen is obtained when bovine bones are ground down and crushed, before being soaked in a form of acid in order to remove the natural calcium stores that they contain. Then the bones are soaked in the acid once again in order to break down the collagen bonds, before finally being dehydrated. This ensures that the final product comes in the form of perfect amino acids that are fully intact and have not been damaged. This is very beneficial because due to their size, molecular structure, and surface area, the amino acids can then be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream once consumed, where they can instantly get to work and can function as new building blocks for natural collagen formation.
Many supplements designed to promote weight loss and muscle growth will contain hydrolyzed collagen, and for a very good reason. As mentioned, the amino acids contained in the hydrolyzed collagen can be very rapidly absorbed via the human body once they have reached the bloodstream. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules, so obviously the more amino acids there are, the more muscle proteins the body will be able to generate via protein synthesis, which in turn, will help result in lean muscle growth, as well as post-workout recovery as well. On top of that, the supplement has also been found to help enhance fat loss, due to the fact that it can communicate internally with naturally occurring fat burning enzymes, and can basically tell them to burn stored body fat as a primary source of energy, rather than dietary carbohydrates and glucose sugars found within the bloodstream. When you combine this with the fact that it encourages the body to generate lean muscle tissue as well, the metabolism also gets a real boosts as muscle requires more energy for maintenance than fat, so more calories have to be burnt off as you increase your lean muscle levels.
Some of the primary benefits associated with hydrolyzed collagen supplements include the following:
Hydrolyzed collagen is naturally high in protein and amino acids, which have been proven to be the building blocks of muscle proteins, and are essential for protein synthesis to occur. Supplementing with hydrolyzed collagen is a great way of increasing your lean muscle mass levels, making it a great supplement for bodybuilders, or for people simply looking to increase their lean muscle levels slightly.
Another benefit of this supplement is that it can allow the body to use stored body fat as a primary source of energy, instead of proteins and carbohydrates, so obviously if you’re burning body fat for energy, you are going to be losing weight as a result.
Studies have also found that hydrolyzed collagen can help to treat a number of other chronic health issues, including arthritis, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, joint pain, hypertension, and more besides.
