Why Collagen Peptides?

Collagen peptides are short chain amino acids naturally derived from pasture-raised collagen protein. Unlike gelatin, these peptides are soluble in cold liquids as well as hot. Collagen peptides contain the same amino acids as gelatin which are identical to the protein found in skin, nails, hair, bones, cartilage, and joints. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is a key constituent of all connective tissues. Collagen provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system, essential for mobility. Peptides are short chain amino acids naturally derived from collagen protein. These natural peptides are highly bioavailable, digestible and soluble in cold water. The intake of collagen ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints. Collagen is a natural and healthy ingredient that has been used for centuries. Collagen-rich foods are a large part of traditional diets. Our ancestors utilized whole-animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen, the native form of gelatin. Over time, we have lost touch with this powerful, healing superfood. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides are sourced from pasture raised bovine hides from Brazil to ensure a natural, high quality, and sustainable source of this ancient nutritional powerhouse. The peptides are gelatin proteins broken down into their constituent peptide chains. This is what happens naturally when you boil broth too hard and it will not gel, the gelatin has been broken down. The collagen peptides have the advantage that you can mix them into cold/cool liquids, as well as hot/warm, without them "gelling" or congealing. However, you cannot use them in recipes that call for gelatin. You may add our peptides to cold or hot beverages such as a smoothie, juice, flavored water, tea or coffee, as well as a variety of foods like pancakes, oatmeal or parfaits to boost the protein content.
