Collagen is critical for healthy connective tissues. The most abundant protein in the body, collagen strengthens cartilage and bones, and adds elasticity to skin, hair and ligaments. Collagen Hydrolysate is a concentrated powerhouse of these amino acids. Super soluble, it quickly metabolizes and regenerates tired skin, achy joints, thinning hair and many other depleted tissues.

Think about your skin, nails, ligaments, tendons, artery walls, even corneas – these are all reliant on healthy connective tissues.
