Unique Benefits of Collagen Protein
Collagen Peptide– (Blue lid) These peptides are derived from gelatin, and contain the same amino acids as gelatin. The main difference is use – the peptides dissolve instantly in hot or cold liquids without gelling for an easy nutrition boost.
When collagen is digested, the peptides are attracted to cells that synthesize collagen in the human body, fibroblasts, and are the most common cells of connective tissues in the skin. Collagen Peptide may bring about the production and reorganization of new collagen fibers by stimulating the fibroblasts cells. Furthermore, some studies show that Collagen Peptide increase the density and diameter of collagen fibrils in the dermis and may improve the strength of skin.
When only the muscle meats are eaten, the amino acid balance entering our blood stream is the same as that produced by extreme stress, when cortisol excess causes our muscles to be broken down to provide energy and material for repair. The formation of serotonin is increased by the excess tryptophan in muscle, and serotonin stimulates the formation of more cortisol, while the tryptophan itself, along with the excess muscle-derived cysteine, suppresses the thyroid function.
